Donald Trump Again Tweets Regrets About Choosing Jeff Sessions

Amid news that President Donald Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to rethink his decision to step back from the Russian Federation investigation, MSNBC political analyst Jason Johnson argued that the former Alabama senator would never turn on the president.

But he added that Trump likely isn't really hoping Sessions will resign, citing the fact that it would be tough to get a new attorney general approved by the Senate any time soon.

Trump quoted Gowdy as saying, "There are a lot of good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!"

And the scope of the special counsel's investigation may include whether Trump broke the law in trying to frustrate the Russian Federation investigation - by asking Comey to lay off, by reportedly asking other intelligence bosses how to get Comey off the case, by firing Comey or by leaning on Sessions. I can't think of any major case I handled in 20 years where there was not someone willing to provide information.

"He should never have recused himself". In normal times, I imagine it is pretty sweet.

Gowdy and House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., received a secret briefing last week about the FBI's use of the confidential human source.

Sessions's decision to recuse came at a time of mounting criticism from Democrats and Republicans following a story from the Washington Post reporting he had spoken twice with Russia's ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, without disclosing it during his confirmation hearing. The agreement was made during a meeting between Trump, U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

On Monday, the Justice Department agreed to investigate "any irregularities" in Federal Bureau of Investigation tactics related to Trump's campaign.

Sessions was an early supporter of Trump's campaign and the first sitting senator to endorse his candidacy for president.

Trump, meanwhile, noted Gowdy's comment that the president could have picked someone other than Jef Sessions to lead the Justice Department. I don't think he would ever flip on Donald Trump. "Much of his desire for investigating Clinton and Barack Obama comes from a desire for retribution", people who have discussed this with the president tell Swan. Looking ahead to fall elections, he has reinforced to Trump that the best approach now "is to keep focused on good governance in the midterms". Comey documented conversations with Trump in the weeks leading up to his dismissal in a series of memos.

"I've advised him from the very beginning, as a friend, not even as a lawyer", he explained, "why would you put up a red herring?"
