U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is safe in his job at least until the midterm elections in November. Justice Department lawyers have previously said Rosenstein is aware of the scope and activities of Mueller's investigation.
President Trump tells Bloomberg he will not fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the midterms, threatens to pull the US out of the World Trade Organization if it does not 'shape up'. Graham made the comments in an interview with "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson that airs Thursday.
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".
Meanwhile, Republican senators have shown new openness to a new attorney general.
Rick Zamperin: Simply put, Blue Jays whiffed on Josh Donaldson deal
Given his injury history, it makes sense that they don't want to risk him accepting that offer and sticking around. After spending parts of four big-league seasons in Oakland, Donaldson had a monster first year with the Blue Jays.
"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly". It said the president declined to comment when asked whether he would keep Sessions in office beyond November. Now Graham believes Trump should fire Sessions. On Monday, Trump tweeted, "Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department".
Trump's 36 percent job approval is a slight tick downward from April, when the outlets last measured Americans' views of Trump and found him at 40 percent.
Wallace said, "Remember though, that the recusal of Sessions did not lead to the special counsel".
Trump has raged against Jeff Sessions since his decision to recuse himself from Russia-related matters a year ago. He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched". He dismisses allegations that Trump colluded with Russian Federation to swing the 2016 election in his favor and agrees with the president that there is "corruption" in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
