Trump to Bloomberg: Sessions' job is safe until at least November elections

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump has not stopped talking about firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the man he publicly has an ongoing feud with.

Trump has called the investigation a "witch hunt" and routinely questions why the Justice Department isn't investigating Hillary Clinton.

When Trump was asked whether he would comply if Mueller issued a subpoena for him to appear for questioning, the president said "I'll see what happens". Graham made the comments in an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson that airs Thursday. "I will get involved and I'll get in there if I have to".

Trump has belittled Sessions in conversations with Republican senators in the past week, Politico reported.

But the Raiders on Saturday agreed to trade the 27-year-old to the Chicago Bears , ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, citing sources. The Chicago Bears are expected to pull off a whopper of a trade the likes of which the team hasn't seen in about a decade.

"What's happening is a disgrace, and at some point ... if it doesn't straighten out properly ..."

"I view it differently", Bloomberg quoted Trump as saying.

Last week, in an interview with Fox, Trump lashed out at Sessions, saying he failed to take control of the Department of Justice.

But despite Trump's unhappiness with Sessions, when asked if he would keep him employed past midterms, Bloomberg reports, Trump declined to answer.

At the same time, the Trump administration has been cutting Pakistani military officers out of American training programs. Trump used his first tweet of 2018 to attack the Pakistani government saying they shelter the "terrorists we hunt".

The president - who did not address the specifics of the charges, just the political impact - has previously pressed Mr Sessions to investigate his perceived enemies and has accused him of failing to take control of the Justice Department.

The statement comes after the president has ramped up his attacks on the attorney general over recusing himself in the Russian Federation investigation and, in the eyes of the president, failing to do enough to investigate Mr. Trump's opponents.

"The president's lost confidence in Jeff Sessions", Graham said. "I view it as an illegal investigation" because "great scholars" have said that "there should never have been a special counsel". He charged that Mr Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched". He's spent the last week chatting with "any senator who will listen" about how angry he is at Sessions, one Republican Senate aide said - including Sen.
