Republican Senator Basically Warns President Trump About Impeachment

"In my experience, he's of the belief that sometimes a little friction in the ranks is how you surface the best ideas", Gerstman said of Trump.

Gee, Mom, thanks. Guess I'll go over here and privately lick my wounds.

"I think there is broad bipartisan agreement that we want to preserve the Senate's role", said Coons.

Trump's freakish passive-aggressive attacks on Jeff Sessions are understandable only as an expression of fear that he has no sure defense against Mueller.

On Tuesday, at a joint White House press conference with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Trump said, in response to a reporter's question: "I'm disappointed in the attorney general..."

It's leaks of information that have the White House in a tizzy, and they come from sources all over town - Congress, federal agencies and lobbyists among them.

Obama tried to challenge the practice when he made a series of recess appointments, despite the Senate meeting in pro forma sessions every three days.

The President's comments disparaging the attorney general are damaging to the Department of Justice and the American public. But he cautioned that "pushing Jeff Sessions out won't get Congress to move forward on his policies or stop liberals attacks".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has served this nation very admirably.

The letter comes as Trump has repeatedly criticized the attorney general in public. He was not convinced that either man loves him enough.

Smith noted the case of Manafort, who ran Trump's presidential campaign until the New York Times revealed in August of a year ago that Ukrainian investigators believed he had received $12.7 million in undisclosed payments from a pro-Russian political party.

You wouldn't know it if you read President Donald Trump's tweets, but it's been a productive week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I think Jeff Sessions is doing a good job, and I think it would be incredibly disruptive and make it more hard for the President to accomplish his agenda", Cornyn told CNN's Manu Raju.

The president sent out various tweets this week targeting Sessions, labeling him "beleaguered" and "very weak".

"'s kind of hurtful but the President of the United States is a strong leader", Sessions said.

But another rule of thumb in Trump's inner circle is that it's never wise to outshine the president. I want investigations of Hillary Clinton.

If it could happen to him, it could happen to anyone else who works for the president. But Trump's appreciation is not only finite, it's ephemeral.

"Over 90 percent of the people who voted for him support him still", Ruddy added. Press secretary Sean Spicer, a close ally of Priebus, resigned last week.

The centrifugal force of Trump frenzy is spinning off allies in Republican and conservative elites who have been clinging to his coattails since November in the hopes of enacting their agendas.

Sessions' former colleagues in the Senate denounced the president's broadsides against the first senator to endorse him. "That's all he wanted". A shiv could describe what Scaramucci did to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus on Thursday by daring Priebus during a CNN interview to publicly deny that he's a "leaker".

Trump is obviously trying to belittle Sessions until he gets fed up and resigns. Trump won the state's GOP primary by 20 points and had one of his largest margins of victory over Clinton there. "He advances things (and then) backs away from them", Frum said. Let the president try to convince the country - let him try to convince a Senate that would ultimately be called on to confirm a new attorney general - that firing you served the national interest, not his own personal political and legal needs.

Sessions should have known that already.
