'Jeff Sessions discussed Trump campaign with Russian ambassador'

'Jeff Sessions discussed Trump campaign with Russian ambassador'”

It has not been a particularly fun week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, D.C.'s controversial Confederate monument that appears to be slated for removal in the short- to medium-term future.

"After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that 'Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia, '" Trump said in a tweet. Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

President Trump took another swipe at Jeff Sessions on Monday morning, even after the fallout from his comments last week criticizing the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

That's a stunning vote of not-much-confidence from Trump in a man who was one of his top surrogates during the 2016 campaign and one of his fiercest defenders in the early days of the presidency.

In a Tweet published just prior to 9:00 a.m. ET, the President questioned why "beleaguered" Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn't "looking into Crooked Hillarys (sic) crimes & Russian Federation relations". U.S. President Donald Trump has put forth the possibility of replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Sessions can not influence the probe because he has recused himself.

Axios sensibly caveats its report by noting that Trump often floats wild-ass trial balloons in conversations with members of his inner circle, so his musings about the prospect of Attorney General Giuliani may be nothing more than the late-night ramblings of an angry old man. "That's, I think, one of the bones of contention here because it's arguable that he didn't need to recuse himself".

Trump and Sessions have not talked since - at least - the Times interview, according to two White House officials. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? When Trump was elected, Sessions was given a pick of prime Cabinet spots and expressed interest in being attorney general, giving up a safe Senate seat and decades of seniority.

Sessions has said he had no plans to resign.

Sessions "made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department" in recusing himself from the investigation, Giuliani told CNN on Monday after landing at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

That has only fueled Trump's obsession with the probe, which has dogged his White House since Inauguration Day.
