washington - US President Donald Trump has dismissed Justice Minister Jeff Sessions. Trump announced the dismissal of Sessions via Twitter. The relationship between Sessions and Trump had been difficult for months.
Trump repeatedly urged Sessions to stop special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Mueller investigates the Russian influence of the American elections in 2016. Sessions withdrew from the research at the beginning of last year because he himself had been discredited due to contacts with the Russian ambassador in the US. He wanted to prevent any appearance of partiality. Trump was not happy and said that he would never have appointed Sessions if he had known that.
