Sessions Is A Key Witness In Mueller Probe

ImagePresident Trump’s promotion of elaborate unproven theories appears to be having a distinct

After Trump finished quoting Gowdy, he affirmed he wishes he had picked somebody else for the attorney general job.

The New York Times reported that Trump in March 2017 asked Sessions to reverse the decision to recuse himself, in a move that is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump's anger at Sessions has often prompted speculation in Washington that the US leader would fire him, or his deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Mueller probe after Sessions recused himself from the oversight role. "I told the president at the time that I just didn't know what I would have done".

The FBI was not trying to protect now-President Donald Trump or his 2016 campaign by assigning an informant to report back about Russian activities, Rep. Ron DeSantis said Thursday, taking issue with Rep. Trey Gowdy's assertions that the agency acted properly with its investigation.

To be sure, however, Mueller's office has filed criminal charges against a number of people, including Trump's former campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, national security adviser and others.

The World No. 1 had been two sets up but 0-3 down in the third when rain caused the tie to be suspended late Monday. Williams next will face Australian Ashleigh Barty , who is the 17th seed.

As he previously told HuffPost, he thinks Trump would agree to an interview with Mueller - but only if the DOJ turns over its report on the use of a confidential informant to acquire information from Trump campaign officials about Russian involvement.

This source said nothing has changed the Sessions relationship with Trump - it is still day-by-day, and they speak when they have to. That decision by Sessions, as well as Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, helped lead the way to the appointment of Mueller as special counsel.

'If the Federal Bureau of Investigation was so concerned, and if they weren't targeting Trump, they should have told Trump, ' the president quoted Limbaugh as saying.

"Look, the president has made his viewpoint very clearly known, and I don't have any personnel announcements at this point", Sanders said. "And then what law enforcement does is up to them", the former prosecutor said.

Sessions has stood by his decision and continued to offer no public signal that he intends to step down in face of the criticism, despite an apparent offer to resign after Trump berated him and called him an "idiot" past year, according to The New York Times. Sessions, during his confirmation hearings, provided misleading testimony regarding his past interactions with Russia's ambassador to the United States.
