Sessions' job is safe until at least midterms, Trump says

President Donald Trump says he'll keep Attorney General Jeff Sessions around - at least until November when midterm elections take place.

"I just would love to have him do a great job", Trump said of Sessions on Thursday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News.

Trump has persistently derided Classes publicly for recusing himself from the investigation of Russian interference within the 2016 election, a probe that Trump calls a "witch hunt".

Wallace pointed out that Sessions's recusal did not immediately lead to Mueller's Russian Federation probe, saying that the investigation was the result of Trump firing FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyBrzezinski: Trump attacking NBC News boss Andy Lack with "stupid rumors" about possible firing Trump lashes out at CNN, NBC in sustained media attacks Trump makes wise move to find fresh new White House counsel MORE.

President Trump declined to answer whether he would allow Sessions to remain in the position following the midterms.

The procedural fallout would also be a disaster, with Democrats potentially all but shutting down the chamber, and even fellow Republicans saying they won't help confirm a new attorney general.

Trump is also dismissive of Sessions' personality, temperament and diminutive stature.

He believes Sessions "is preventing Trump from making a serious political mistake by trying to fire Mueller" rather than letting the special counsel investigation run its course. "He won't. He might get fired, but I don't think he'll quit".

I think he knows that by not resigning until the Mueller investigation is over he's protecting the president from himself and from doing major political harm to the GOP. Dickerson then asked if there is cause unrelated to the Mueller probe for firing Sessions.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said at the White House Thursday that Trump will make the announcement about McGahn's successor.

He told the news service he considers special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to be an "illegal". I'm not asking for him to be fired. "This relationship is beyond fix, I specialize in", Graham stated Tuesday. "But I don't think any of those are personal or threaten his tenure".

In recent months, Graham, who gave an emotional tribute to McCain on the Senate floor on Wednesday, sought to balance a friendship with the Republican senator from Arizona with his stated desire to work with Trump, a hard task given the friction between the men. So if they're saying Sessions is about to go, well, you can pretty much count on it. McCain was a big man, worthy of a big country.
