Trump believed Russia investigation undermined his world standing, Sessions told Mueller

President Donald Trump saw the Russia investigation as undermining his authority and standing on the world stage, driving his efforts to undercut special counsel Robert Mueller, according to newly released testimony from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Sessions spoke to Mueller's office in January 2018 about his recusal a year earlier from overseeing the Russia investigation, and Trump's reaction to it.

"Trump said something like 'you were supposed to protect me,'" investigators said the former attorney general told them.

Sessions described a fragile, angry Trump, noting how the President reacted to a Chinese officials' comments about the investigation.

No Donny, the fact that you're a gullible idiot with a bad temper has undermined your world standing.
