  • Trump tried to convince GOP senators to turn on Sessions report

Trump said on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was safe in his job at least until the November congressional elections, Bloomberg News reported after interviewing the US leader. Justice Department lawyers have previously said Rosenstein is aware of the scope and activities of Mueller's investigation. But now the attorneys are becoming convinced Mueller will try to make the case regardless of what Trump decides to do with Sessions.

Trump has belittled Sessions in conversations with Republican senators in the past week, Politico reported.

"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly".

Mr. Trump admonished his attorney general on Twitter last week, claiming he "never took control of the Justice Department".

Sessions infuriated Trump by recusing himself from the investigation into alleged Trump-Russia ties past year which prompted Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel leading the inquiry. Bloomberg said Trump declined to comment when asked if he would keep Sessions past then. Several aides said Graham is annoyed with Sessions because he opposes a criminal justice reform bill he supports. "I hope they can fix these problems, but I don't see that happening anytime soon", Graham said. "I view it as an illegal investigation [because] great scholars [have said] there should never have been a special counsel". He charged that Mr Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".
