Trump's long-simmering anger stems from Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation. In contrast to this, Charles Cooper, Washington lawyer said that Attorney General Sessions had initially publicly testified about oath on his recollection of this specific meeting and in his statement, he stood with his testimony.
Of course, Toobin's hypothetical is a totally different situation, mainly since Trump wasn't recommending that Sessions or anyone else in the Justice Department cease what they're now doing.
"The Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now", Trump quipped.
Delaware Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat, on Tuesday afternoon called Trump's tweet on Sessions "unprecedented".
Sessions has said his department won't be "improperly influenced by political considerations".
In Fear: Trump in the White House, journalist Bob Woodward, according to the New York Times, described Pence as "a glorified golf caddy who doesn't want to rock the boat lest Trump tweet something mean about him". The Wisconsin Republican says political party should have no impact on how the department works.

The Bachelor in Paradise star also told Tia not to settle for anything less than the world, saying that's what she deserved. Despite the backlash, the 26-year-old does have a number of supporters. "And I wish her all the best".
The White House summoned the press pool about 10:30 a.m. for a road trip, and the president emerged from the White House 10 minutes later rocking a red polo shirt, dark trousers and a white MAGA hat. The White House did not immediately react.
Contrary to Trump's claim that both indictments were the result of "long-running Obama-era investigations", the DOJ did not open its investigation into Hunter until March 2017, after Trump took office. "In his world they swore an oath to him, not (the) constitution and laws", Schatz wrote on Twitter. And possibly because the two members of Congress facing indictments have been long and loyal supporters of his.
Later in the segment, Napolitano said that such tweets could be used by Mueller to potentially prove corrupt intent in an obstruction of justice charge.
Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona tweeted that Trump was "looking to use the Department of Justice to settle political scores".
But, as Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) said in a pointed statement, "The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice - one for the majority and one for the minority party".
But after taking a look around - and possibly noting the swamp-like heat and humidity engulfing the capital - he strolled back inside the White House at 10:42. Richard Shelby, who served alongside Sessions for 20 years, told the Washington Post: "Well, I'm sure I've got that accent, wouldn't you think?" Trump seemed to embrace that idea in an interview with Bloomberg in late August, when he said Sessions' job was safe until at least November. The scandal severely damaged public confidence in the impartial administration of justice.
