Pence on Trump's Tweets, Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare

Pence on Trump's Tweets, Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare

"If Mueller is fired, then I'll decide how to react". Whatever it was cost me money and a good deal of embarrassment. "In his mind, he is his own best advocate, his own best lawyer", one adviser said.

INSKEEP: Help me out here, Carrie Johnson, because you said the Justice Department does not begin an investigation because a politician demands it.

"I stand with Jeff Sessions", Brooks added. And you'll wish you hadn't had to pay for it. But constitutional scholars warn that Congress could have a tough time trying to veto Trump's action.

For Sessions, the anti-gang mission was a way to show his priorities are Trump's priorities after days of being upbraided by the president in the most public fashion.

But GOP senators take the confirmation process seriously - especially for critical and sensitive posts like attorney general - and might be reluctant to clear a path for Trump to install a loyalist especially when Trump himself maybe under investigation.

In a pair of morning tweets, Trump said Sessions should have named a replacement for Andrew McCabe, the acting director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

If it could happen to him, it could happen to anyone else who works for the president.

Noel Francisco, the principal deputy solicitor general at the Justice Department and Trump's current nominee to be solicitor general, was the lead attorney arguing against the Obama administration in the 2015 landmark Supreme Court case NLRB v Noel Canning.

President Donald Trump pumps his fist after speaking to law enforcement officials on the street gang MS-13, Friday, July 28, 2017, in Brentwood, N.Y. He was not convinced that either man loves him enough.

By the time Andrew McCabe did become FBI deputy director in February 2016, which would have given him some role in overseeing the Russian Federation investigation, his wife's campaign had been over for three months. Sessions has recused himself from the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump's campaign. Trump can't make it any plainer that he expects federal officials to protect him and that he has found Sessions - like Comey before him - to be insufficiently loyal.

Ironically, one thing protecting Sessions is that he is more Trumpian than Trump.

On Wednesday White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders could not answer basic questions about how President Trump's new policy banning transgendered members of the military would be implemented. Mr. Comey had previously told the House of Representatives' Intelligence Committee that the FBI was investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation during the election. But Trump's appreciation is not only finite, it's ephemeral.

A White House spokesman went as far as suggesting that Trump was considering firing the country's top prosecutor.

TRUMP: Sessions should never recused himself. And. Whatever reputation he had he ruined. "That's all he wanted".

INSKEEP: Anthony Scaramucci, the president's communications director, made a little bit of news last night because he was very unhappy about what he felt like was a leak of his financial disclosure, his financial information. Sessions not only endorsed Trump, but he did so as three of his colleagues were running for the presidency. "People know we have a president who says what he means and means what he says".

In Washington, lawmakers from both parties moved on efforts to prevent the dismissal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a development that might be made easier if Sessions were moved aside.

JOHNSON: Well, you know, Steve, Jeff Sessions followed the rules.

Sessions shouldn't be surprised that somebody as mercurial and petty as Trump has turned on him.

JOHNSON: Widely considered a reward for Jeff Sessions' unstinting loyalty to Donald Trump.

Bryant, the Jefferson County GOP leader, heard similar statements at her church, which she described as full of Republicans, rather than Trump fans: "They were all talking about it at choir practice this week".
