Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had no choice but to recuse himself from the Justice Department's investigation into Russian election meddling, and urged President Trump directly to move past his rift with the top law enforcement official.

"He is very loyal to the President. He loves the law," Graham said on Fox News. "There is no way in hell that Jeff Sessions could preside over an investigation of a campaign that he was part of."

"If President Trump is listening tonight, Jeff Sessions had no alternative, Mr. President, as a lawyer. He had to get out of the way of the investigation because he was so close to your campaign. The American people would not tolerate somebody part of the campaign investigating the campaign. That was obvious to me."

Graham's comments came amid reports that Sessions had offered recently to resign from the Justice Department after Trump became upset with him over his decision in March to recuse himself from the Russia probe.

Tensions between the two men reportedly grew last month when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

While that announcement is said to have taken both Trump and Sessions by surprise, the president reportedly lashed out at the attorney general, blaming his recusal decision for Mueller's appointment.

Sessions said in March that he would step away from the investigation after it was revealed that he had failed to disclose meetings with Russian Ambassadsor Sergey Kislyak while he was a high-profile campaign surrogate for Trump.

You're literally spamming without even adding any content of your own.  Do you have anything to add?  All you're doing is copy-pasting articles.  You know anyone who is conservative can easily do the same thing right? 

Is it even possible for you to think for yourself?  I doubt it....
