Trump won't say if Sessions' job is safe after November

President Donald Trump has been personally lobbying Republican senators to join him in his ongoing battle against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Politico is reporting. Justice Department lawyers have previously said Rosenstein is aware of the scope and activities of Mueller's investigation.

When asked in the Bloomberg News interview whether he would comply if Mr Mueller issued a subpoena for him to appear for questioning, Mr Trump said: "I'll see what happens".

Two of Donald Trump's fiercest Republican critics have suddenly taking a liking to the president - and with it, come around to his views on Russian Federation.

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 wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly". For now. That comes from an interview President Trump gave Bloomberg today in which he declared he would not fire Sessions before the midterm elections.

"I just would love to have him do a great job", Bloomberg quoted Trump as saying.

Democrats attacks Republicans of leaking portions Trump-Russia ties proofs
Steele conducted Democratic-funded research into Trump's ties to Russian Federation during the campaign. They discussed the matter when meeting for breakfast on July 30, 2016, according to the report.

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

Wallace said, "Remember though, that the recusal of Sessions did not lead to the special counsel".

"The president's lost confidence in Jeff Sessions", Graham said.

"I think you serve at the pleasure of the president", Graham said. He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

Some Republicans in Congress who have defended Sessions have made room for the president's intense criticisms.

Last summer, Graham said there would be "holy hell to pay" if Sessions was sacked, but this week, he said the relationship between Trump and Sessions "is not working".
