WASHINGTON— President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that he wished he has picked somebody besides Jeff Sessions to serve as Attorney General.

The comment came as Trump tweeted remarks House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) made on CBS’ This Morning Wednesday explaining why the president has publicly been at odds with Sessions over his recusal from the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“‘There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!’ And I wish I did!” Trump tweeted.

The tweet comes the day after the New York Times reported that Trump placed pressure on Sessions, who served on the Trump campaign, to reverse his decision.

Trump has previously used Twitter to rebuke his Attorney General, going so far as to call him “beleaguered” last summer.
