Reality Check: Can Sessions stop the Mueller investigation?

Trump Calls for Sessions to End Russia Probe

In a series of tweets, he said Attorney General Jeff Sessions must halt the inquiry into alleged election meddling.

Aides rushed to limit the damage, insisting he was not issuing an order as Session's boss. "It's the president's opinion, and it's ridiculous that all of the corruption and dishonesty that's gone on with the launching of the witch-hunt the president has watched this process play out, but he also wants to see it come to an end as he stated many times and we look forward to that", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. "One of the good things about using that is he's established a clear sort of practice now, that he expresses his opinions on Twitter".

"He used the word 'should, ' he didn't use the word 'must'". Though long antagonistic toward the press, Trump's anger toward the media has only grown over the past month, as he has berated coverage of his Singapore and Helsinki summits, the possible prosecutorial cooperation of his former legal "fixer" Michael Cohen and the Mueller probe. Trump called any talk of collusion "a Hoax".

"No collusion" - it's a defense President Trump has used against allegations that his campaign worked with Russian Federation to win the 2016 presidential election.

The relationship between Mr Trump and Mr Sessions has been strained for more than a year, after the attorney general recused himself from the probe relating to the 2016 election. Mueller is a Republican who was appointed as Federal Bureau of Investigation director by President George W. Bush, and the man who tapped him as special counsel, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, was named by Trump and is also a registered Republican. "America must never accept it".

Even Trump's allies questioned the demand. "They are ongoing. We haven't reached an agreement yet on any terms of such an interview and I can't predict whether we will reach agreement or not", said Scott Balber, the attorney for the Agalarovs.

"Let Mueller finish his job". For now, however, we know Trump was desperate to throw Mueller off the scent.

Trump's actions are under scrutiny by Mueller, who is examining whether the president has sought to block the probe into Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign.

Back in Russian Federation, he was named as Commercial Director of the Crocus Group and was later promoted to Vice President in 2012 and Executive Vice President in 2014.

Mueller has offered to reduce the number of obstruction-related questions that investigators would ask the president but wants obstruction to be addressed in person, not just in written answers, according to CNN.

The president's anger came the day after the start of the trial of Manafort, who is facing federal charges of bank fraud and tax evasion.

"Paul Manafort worked for Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other highly prominent and respected political leaders".

Agalarov is said to have helped set up the June 9, 2016 meeting attended by then-candidate Donald Trump's son, son-in-law Jared Kushner, and campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Trump has voiced skepticism about Russia's role in USA election meddling, drawing accusations from Democrats and Republicans alike that he is ignoring a threat to American democracy.

He later raised the question of whether Manafort was being treated worse than Alphonse "Al" Capone, misspelling the American gangster's name in a tweet.
