In an interview almost immediately following his dismissal as attorney general, Jeff Session stood by his decision to recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller investigation, while simultaneously acknowledging that the length of said investigation has proven counterproductive.

The Daily Caller reports:
 

Sessions spoke to Wall Street Journal’s Judith Miller as he was leaving the Justice Department.

Sessions told Miller that he did not expect the Mueller probe would last as long as it has. And though he suggested the 18 month investigation has lasted too long, he said that “the country is committed to this course.” (RELATED: Trump Fires Jeff Sessions)

He said that he is “confident” that the investigation is being handled “appropriately and with justification.”
 
Sessions was replaced by his chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker. A former U.S. attorney, Whitaker has publicly criticized the Mueller investigation.


Since Session's March 2017 decision to recuse himself, President Donald Trump has made no secret of his frustration with the former attorney general.
