Sessions later announced he was recusing himself from any election-related investigations, a decision he said he began to discuss with senior Justice Department officials in late February. Trump too has invoked the specter of McCarthyism alleging that President Obama had his phone tapped during the presidential campaign. He also questioned if the United States should defend North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries that don't pay a fair share of their bills.
Now, just close your eyes and imagine the reverse. WikiLeaks published Clinton's emails during the election, which was a theme taken up by Trump repeatedly during the campaign. She has worked as a journalist, author, translator, and activist, and is a major critic of both Vladimir V. Putin and Donald J. Trump.
Much to Trump's annoyance, Attorney General Jeff Sessions had to recuse himself from the probe after withdrawing his denial he had any contacts during the campaign with the Russians. During these meetings, the strict sanctions the Obama administration imposed on Russian Federation are discussed. He testified under oath during the hearing that he "did not have communications with the Russians". "You think our country's so innocent?" During the 2016 election, Russian Federation was accused of trying to influence the American election.

And during the run for the oval office then-campaign manager for Trump, Paul Manafort, resigned after being accused of receiving kickback payments from the ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich a figure widely described as being pro-Russian in the Western media. The conspiracy theories about President Obama's birth certificate, which Trump himself shamefully promoted, were "serious", but were rightly not the subject of an investigation. According to a YouGov poll, 52 percent of Democrats believe Russian Federation tampered with the vote totals to elect Trump. Now that leader is Trump. Instead, he changes the subject.
Then, unfortunately, we have our Democratic Sen.
Finally, the third prong, without the support of which the stool would collapse: the impression that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been feverishly investigating what is said to be the Trump campaign's collusion in what is said to be the Russian hacking of the election.
