Trump Again Criticizes Sessions, This Time Over FBI Leadership

29 Juillet 2017

The Justice Department responded quickly yesterday after Anthony Scaramucci, Trump's newly appointed communications director, complained that his financial disclosure form was leaked, even though that information isn't classified.

In an interview with The New York Times last week, Trump said he would never have appointed Sessions had he known he would recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

"The law enforcement community in the country feels as good about the attorney general as I have ever seen them feel about their work, and his work", Blunt said on the Mark Reardon show on KMOX.

He added, however, that Trump was a "strong leader" who "wants all of us to do our job". "And that's what I intend to do".

Sessions told Fox News on July 27 that the barrage of criticism from Trump was "hurtful" but would not prompt him to resign. "We had a 25% increase in prosecution of criminals with guns just this last quarter; the first real quarter that I've been in office. prosecutions are going to be up".

Coons said he expects the Senate to act to make sure President Trump could not make a recess appointment if Sessions is fired as Attorney General.

Despite his denouncements of the attorney general, Trump has made no move to fire Sessions or ask for his resignation, saying only that "time will tell" about the AG's future with the administration.

McCabe was Deputy FBI Director during the bureau's investigation into Clinton's email use in 2016 and the FBI's Inspector General announced in January that it will be probing whether or not McCabe should have recused himself.

Bolduan, seemingly in disbelief, continued to reject the notion that the media forced the President's hand, until Brat allowed: "I will concede the President did touch his keypad".

"An attorney general who doesn't follow the law is not very effective in leading the department of justice", Sessions told Fox News' Tucker Carlson in a taped interview on Thursday.

Push back from conservatives has been steadfast and largely in defense of Sessions, who served as a senator for 20 years.

A new attorney general, uncumbered by Mr Sessions' Russia recusal, would have the power to fire the special prosector investigating the issue. "AG no way", Grassley tweeted. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Thursday there would be "holy hell to pay" if Trump did it.

Sessions went on to say he believes that he and the Big Cheeto have a "harmony of values and beliefs", but Trump clearly thinks differently. Other Republican Senate hopefuls who are competing to challenge incumbent Sen.
