Breitbart sides with Sessions over Trump on Clinton probe

Breitbart News' Adam Shaw has the site's lead story right now with a tough reminder for President Trump: it was he, not Attorney General Sessions, who said after the campaign that Hillary Clinton should be left alone instead of facing further legal probes.

A sampling of Breitbart's toughest lines:

  • "[O]nly serves to highlight Trump's own hypocrisy on the issue — and is likely to fuel concerns from his base who see Sessions at the best hope to fulfill Trump's immigration policies.
  • "Trump's base reasoned that they would rather have a border wall than Hillary Clinton prosecuted. But now they may end up with neither."
  • "Sessions also represents some of the most significant achievements of Trump's young administration."
