Sessions Pushes Back Hard At Trump Comments Made On Fox

Trump tells Sessions he favors death penalty for fentanyl dealers US Attorney General Jeff Sessions hits back at Trump criticism

Donald Trump has hit back at his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, after Sessions issued an unusual public rebuke to the U.S. president.

Democrats are demanding Congress pass legislation that shields the special counsel investigation from being disbanded by Trump or his administration.

"Michaels Cohen's attorney clarified the record, saying his client does not know if President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting (out of which came nothing!)", he wrote at 8:16 a.m.

The President has directed particular ire towards his attorney general this week, saying in an interview Thursday that Sessions "never took control" of the Justice Department.

Whether his comment that he may get personally involved was referring to Sessions was not clear, but the latest Twitter posts reflect the president's swelling agitation at the continuing and widening investigation by Mueller.

Trump has spent more than a year publicly and privately venting over Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the federal Russia-collusion investigation because he'd worked on Trump's campaign.

Tesla's newest affordable sedan, the Model 3, has a 220-mile range and a long-range battery that reaches 310 miles. A prototype, which looks like a 1970s Soviet hatchback, is on display at a military forum near Moscow.

And moving even further down the line of succession - if Sessions, Rosenstein, and Francisco are all gone, then Steven Engel, Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, would be the next person taped to serve as acting attorney general.

The fracas raised speculation that Trump could fire his hand-picked attorney general in an effort to shut down Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation.

Before 7 a.m., Trump appeared to respond to cable news coverage of his renewed feud with Sessions by way of a tweet that included that Sessions quote and what seemed a series of instructions for the Cabinet official for whom he has had the most public scorn.

Trump tweeted Friday that is "small potatoes" compared with "what Hillary Clinton did".

"There's the appearance that Jeff Sessions is doing nothing and not doing his job - [but] the fact [is] that President Trump has not fired him", notes Barber.

In the construction of Trump and allies, there is a parallel galaxy of abuse and wrongdoing by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department, or Democrats, or both, that Sessions and Rosenstein are ignoring at the same time special counsel Robert Mueller investigates the Russian Federation case. This was really the sort of declaration of independence that we traditionally expect from the Department of Justice, but it was a stern rebuke to the president, who expects his attorney general to act as sort of his personal interference section. "Just as I believe any good attorney general would do".

He added that the country was waiting for Sessions to take action.

But Sessions issued a statement defending the integrity of his department.

"He took the job and then he said, 'I'm going to recuse myself, '" Trump said of Sessions. He said, Jeff, this is great. "Highly conflicted Bob Mueller and his gang of 17 Angry Dems are having a field day as real corruption goes untouched".

"At the right time, I think I'm going to have to do the documents".
