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

Trump tried to convince GOP senators to turn on Sessions report Trump Wants To Fire Sessions Because He 'Talks Like He Has Marbles In His Mouth': Report

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a legend in his home state of Alabama, but the former Senator, having drawn the ire of President Donald Trump for not shutting down the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, isn't getting much help from his former allies.

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

"I'll see what happens", Trump told Bloomberg.

The first two Republicans to endorse Mr Trump in the Republican presidential primaries were indicted on separate charges last month, Duncan Hunter, of California, on charges that included spending campaign funds for personal expenses, and Chris Collins, of NY, on insider trading.

"I think the immigration issue was poorly handled".

"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly".




"I just would love to have him do a great job", he said.

The president resumed his attacks on Session via Twitter last week, saying the attorney general had never fully exerted control over the Justice Department.

The website, which conducted an Oval Office interview with the president Thursday, reported that Trump declined to comment when asked if he'd keep Sessions on beyond November.

Another blow in Mr Trump's long-running feud with Mr Sessions, the president's complaint fits with his pattern of viewing the Department of Justice less as a law enforcement agency and more as a department that is supposed to do his political bidding.

Wallace said, "Remember though, that the recusal of Sessions did not lead to the special counsel". He charged that Mr Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

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. Last week, Trump fired several barbs at Sessions, telling Fox news channel's "Fox & Friends" that Sessions "took the job and then he said, 'I'm going to recuse myself".
