Mr. Sessions earned the president's ire when he recused himself from the investigation regarding alleged campaign collusion between President Trump and Russian Federation.

In an article by the Washington Post titled: "Trump team seeks to control, block Mueller's Russian Federation investigation", an advisor close to the President said that investigating Trump's tax returns would have nothing to do with the investigation. He doesn't. We have a full-blown constitutional crisis. Trump will have an acting attorney general. The president has reportedly considered a drastic move, but senators on both sides of the aisle want to make sure he doesn't follow through.

As White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway told Fox & Friends in a response concerning Trump's criticisms of Mueller's staffing choice, "People should know what folks' past motivations, and their political motivations are - these weren't minor donations, these were significant donations by members of that team". They're trying to sneak through a health care bill by violating every reasonable standard citizens should impose on public servants dealing with legislation that affects more than one-sixth of our economy. Trump also complained that Sessions had recused himself from the Russian Federation probe, thus allowing the deputy attorney general to hire the special counsel.

She also voiced concern about Trump chewing out of Sessions for not investigating former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Back then, Democrats objected to Starr's expansive definition of his mandate.

Similar commitments extracted from Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus prompted their resignations when Richard Nixon ordered them to fire special prosecutor Archibald Cox in October 1973. This is unprecedented for special counsels. We're tackling the world's most sour candies in Freaky Foods, Joe Gorman is masquerading as a famous DJ, and we look at the difference between pubs in the country and pubs in the Big Shmoke.

(GRAHAM) Here's what's so frustrating for me President Trump sees the damage done by Obama to our military and he wants to fix it. President Trump sees how stupid the Iranian agreement is and he wants to get a better deal.

To a great extent, Trump may have one last chance to "make America great again". Trump later stated that he was already planning to fire Comey and expressed frustration that he was still being tied to the Russian Federation investigation.

The pair of remarks led to a new round of speculation that Trump would find a way to fire Mueller. "He wanted the job", said Trump.

"There were many other conflicts that I haven't said, but I will at some point", Trump added. The White House, of course, denies this calling it fake news.

If that's the best they can do, they'd better keep looking. LESSON: Congress must protect Mueller and preserve the possibility that Trump may be forced to resign. "Conflict of interest" is also on the list of reasons for which the Justice Department can fire a special counsel, along with "misconduct, dereliction of duty (and) incapacity". Moreover, there is no history of special counsels being appointed and applauded by the press, who went home without taking scalps.

Trump's weird passive-aggressive attacks on Jeff Sessions are understandable only as an expression of fear that he has no sure defense against Mueller. President Trump has got the big stuff right. They need to man up and do so.

To head off a presidency-destroying disaster.

Weirdly, Trump hasn't simply fired Sessions, choosing, instead, to apparently try to humiliate Sessions into quitting.

"People have been calling into the party offices and they are upset", said Sallie Bryant, chairwoman of the Jefferson County Republican Party, which includes Birmingham.

Among others who appeared to have sided with Sessions include Dana Perino, Harris Faukner, and Newt Gingrich.

So it's no surprise that Sessions has stuck to his playbook, even as Trump continues to flay him.
