Sessions’ job is safe until at least November elections — Trump to Bloomberg

Sessions’ job is safe until at least November elections — Trump to Bloomberg

Some Republican lawmakers have predicted Trump would replace Sessions after midterm elections in November, in which Republicans are seeking to maintain control of both the House of Representatives and Senate. After Sessions recused himself, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, which Trump has called a "witch hunt". Graham made the comments in an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson that airs Thursday. Sessions recused himself from the probe past year, prompting harsh and continuous criticism by the president.

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".

Trump has repeatedly attacked Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election campaign. "I do question what Jeff is doing". But they have pressured Trump to wait until after the midterm elections in November.

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

Alisson: I'd be arrogant not to learn from Leicester mistake
When you are playing a team that is challenging for trophies, you have to start with a certain level of intent and intensity. Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson insists he will not make the same mistake again after his gaffe against Leicester .

At a rally in IN on Thursday night, Trump turned up the rhetoric, threatening to "get involved" in the work of the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation unless the agencies "start doing their job". "I hope they can fix these problems, but I don't see that happening anytime soon", Graham said. Jeff Sessions, then senator, was the third.

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 Justice Department declined to comment on the President's tweets.

But we fear that Trump wants to remove him for one simple reason: as a way to undermine the investigation of possible collusion between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.
