President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale is calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to be removed and special counsel Robert Mueller to end the Russia probe.

“Time to fire Sessions,” Parscale tweeted as Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before both the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe. “End the Mueller investigation. You can’t obstruct something that was phony against you.”

“The IG report gives @realDonaldTrump the truth to end it all,” he concluded.

The Reagan Battalion, a conservative group frequently critical of President Trump, jabbed Parscale for demanding Sessions be fired.

“Jeff Sessions was the first and only GOP Senator to endorse Donald Trump for President during the GOP primaries, fair to assume that Trump wouldn’t have won the primaries without Session’s support,” the group tweeted to Trump’s reelection manager.

“Total crap,” Parscale shot back, suggesting Donald Trump only needed social media and Trump Force One, his Boeing 757, to win the Republican primary.

“@realDonaldTrump could have won the entire thing with his cell phone and airplane.”

“He didn’t need anyone to win the primary. Sessions was a great supporter, but made critical mistakes once confirmed,” he added.

On May 30, President Donald Trump tweeted his regret of nominating Sessions to head up the Justice Department.

Responding to Rep. Trey Gowdy’s interview with the Fox News Channel in which the outgoing Congressman said he understood why the President regrets not putting forth another pick for Attorney General, Trump tweeted,  “I wish I did!”

Sessions announced his recusal from all “matters that deal with the Trump campaign,” in March of 2017.
