Donald Trump Again Tweets Regrets About Choosing Jeff Sessions

Trump lobbied for months to have Jeff Sessions take control of the Russia probe — despite Sessions being a key witness in the investigation

Alberto Gonzales, one of Jeff Sessions predecessors as Attorney General, tells Alisyn Camerota on CNN's New Day that Donald Trump won't be able to push Sessions out of the job through passive-aggressive tweeting.

But Trump vented his ire anew in a Twitter remark, citing a television interview comment from Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy that Sessions, a former Alabama senator and early Trump political supporter, had not told Trump before he was named to the country's top legal position that he would remove himself from control of the Russian Federation investigation.

"I think when the president finds out what happened, he is going to be not just fine, he is going to be glad that we have an Federal Bureau of Investigation that took seriously what they heard", he added.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he regretted naming Jeff Sessions as attorney general, as pressure on the White House grows from a special counsel's probe into possible campaign collusion with Russian Federation and obstruction of justice.

"If you had a problem with somebody on the periphery of the campaign, the obvious thing to do is to go brief the campaign and brief Donald Trump", said DeSantis.

Trump has publicly criticized Sessions on a number of occasions, a remarkable break from tradition involving presidents and their cabinet members.

"And I wish I had!" the president wrote. And, they said, it could alienate those in Mr. Trump's conservative base, supporters enamored with the attorney general's tough stances on law enforcement and immigration.

Axios first reported that Trump pressured Sessions multiple times.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment on Giuliani's statements. "He offered it to me", Giuliani said. Republicans on Capitol Hill want to avoid unnecessary drama ahead of the elections, but once Mueller completes his investigation some are now suggesting it may then be time for Trump and Sessions to part ways.

Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Sessions, who he hand-picked past year as the country's top law enforcement official, as the probe into Russian election meddling, and possible obstruction, bores in on the White House.

But former Obama administration intelligence officials and lawmakers rebuked Trump and downplayed his concerns, insisting that the informant didn't infiltrate the Trump campaign and wasn't really spying.
