Mr. President, please cut it out. Tweet to your heart’s content, but stop the wildly inappropriate attacks on the attorney general. An honorable man whom I have known since his days as a U.S. attorney in Alabama, Jeff Sessions has recently become your piñata in one of the most outrageous — and profoundly misguided — courses of presidential conduct I have witnessed in five decades in and around the nation’s capital. What you are doing is harmful to your presidency and inimical to our foundational commitment as a free people to the rule of law.
"Kenneth Starr: Mr. President, Please Cut It Out" is from the July 26, 2017 Opinions section of The Washington Post. It was written by Kenneth W. Starr and narrated by Sam Scholl.
