The FBI acted properly in its investigation of contacts between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, according to Gowdy, who recently received a classified briefing about the origins of the FBI probe.

Gowdy told CBS that Trump is just "expressing frustration that Attorney General Sessions should have shared these reasons for recusal before he took the job". That's how I read that, as "Senator Sessions, why didn't you tell me this before I picked you?"

"And when he asks, 'Should I have done that?' I say, 'No, the way it is now has worked out, '" Giuliani said, adding that he did not believe Trump would fire Sessions.

Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe on March 2, after he was discovered to have met with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the USA at the time, during the presidential election. The South Carolina Republican said the president is frustrated with Sessions because the attorney general did not tell him he would recuse himself from the Justice Department's election meddling probe.

Asked if Trump telling Sessions to reverse his recusal would constitute obstruction of justice, the SC congressman said, "I don't think so". It also suggests that the obstruction investigation is broader than it is widely understood to be - encompassing not only the president's interactions with and firing of the former F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, but also his relationship with Mr. Sessions.

The South Carolina congressman told Fox on Tuesday that after receiving classified briefing on the subject "I am even more convinced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do" in acting on information.

The FBI began its probe of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians well before Election Day.

Trump has publicly criticized Sessions on a number of occasions, a remarkable break from tradition involving presidents and their cabinet members.

Another source familiar with the discussions tells CNN that Sessions met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago soon after the recusal and there was a confrontation. Rush Liumbaugh earlier today pointing out, rightly so, that if the FBI's so anxious about Russia, Russia trying to infiltrate the Trump campaign, they should have warned him'. He could have picked someone else. "Donald Trump is entitled as President of the United States constitutionally to have any discussion with Jeff Sessions".

But former Obama administration intelligence officials and lawmakers rebuked Trump and downplayed his concerns, insisting that the informant didn't infiltrate the Trump campaign and wasn't really spying.
