Trump Just Amped Up His Attacks on His Own Attorney General

Trump lobbied for months to have Jeff Sessions take control of the Russia probe — despite Sessions being a key witness in the investigation

I don't know they've aired them out yet. "If you fire somebody, even though it's legitimate, you're just going to raise a lot of questions". "Nor do I think he should".

The president added that he wishes he'd picked a different attorney general. The former Alabama senator was one of Trump's earliest and most ardent supporters.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday once again publicly humiliated Attorney General Jeff Sessions by angrily tweeting that he wished he'd picked someone else to run the Department of Justice. Moreover, a number of Sessions' former Republican colleagues in the Senate have indicated they would not hold confirmation hearings for a replacement attorney general.

Two sources told Axios that Trump stopped short of ordering Sessions to undo his recusal, but rather told the attorney general he'd be a "hero" among conservatives if he did "the right thing" and reasserted oversight of the investigation.

But Gowdy Wednesday said that based on the information he was provided the true target of the FBI's investigative efforts was Russia's efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters - a secret type of subpoena - officials said.

Longtime Cohen Business Partner Agrees to Plea Deal
If Cohen wants to save his own skin, he'll need to work out a plea deal as well and hand over all of his info on Donald Trump. Freidman pleaded guilty Tuesday to pocketing $5 million in passenger fees that were supposed to fund public transportation.

Some people close to the president have said privately that they believed the recusal was overly broad and done too hastily in the middle of public scrutiny over Mr. Sessions's congressional testimony. Soon after that, the president told NBC News as well as senior Russian officials visiting the Oval Office that he had done so because of the investigation. The person expressed sympathy, but argued against firing Sessions.

Sessions didn't really have a choice in announcing his recusal.

"Don't think that he has any reluctance to be interviewed".

There may be a limit to how long the campaign to save Sessions can hold on.

Trump has gone on the offensive, seeking to paint the Mueller investigation, the Justice Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation as biased against him, and is now calling the Mueller probe "illegitimate" and "rigged". "Oh, it's so bad to work for Donald Trump, ' - but they don't leave, do they?"

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, who in March said firing Sessions would "blow up" the Judiciary Committee, struck a different tone Wednesday, noting that Cabinet positions are "not lifetime appointments".
