  • Mr. Trump's Good Friend Jeff

For those wondering why several Republican senators were suddenly willing to turn their backs on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it's because they've been having venting sessions with President Trump about their former colleague, Politico reports.

Trump has called the investigation a "witch hunt" and routinely questions why the Justice Department isn't investigating Hillary Clinton.

President Trump tells Bloomberg he will not fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the midterms, threatens to pull the US out of the World Trade Organization if it does not 'shape up'.

The first two Republicans to endorse Mr Trump in the Republican presidential primaries were indicted on separate charges last month, Duncan Hunter, of California, on charges that included spending campaign funds for personal expenses, and Chris Collins, of NY, on insider trading.

"The problems between the White House and the president and Attorney General Sessions go well beyond the recusal".

"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly". Bloomberg said Trump declined to comment when asked if he would keep Sessions past then. "I view it as an illegal investigation" because "great scholars" have said that "there should never have been a special counsel".

The president resumed his attacks on Session via Twitter last week, saying the attorney general had never fully exerted control over the Justice Department.

The president - who did not address the specifics of the charges, just the political impact - has previously pressed Mr Sessions to investigate his perceived enemies and has accused him of failing to take control of the Justice Department. The two Republicans were the first and second members of Congress to endorse candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
