Rare GOP Trump guardrail: Never-ending effort to protect Jeff Sessions

Trey Gowdy reveals stunning information about Trump spying accusations

Trey Gowdy reveals stunning information about Trump spying accusations

President Donald Trump's lawyer has repeatedly counseled him not to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions despite the president's ongoing anger at the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

November 18, 2016 - President-elect Donald Trump announces he intends to nominate Sessions to be the next attorney general.

"There are lots of really good lawyers in the country".

When asked if Trump should fire Sessions, Giuliani said no, citing Trump's "improving poll numbers".

"I would have considered it", Giuliani told the Huffington Post.

Sanders also pointed out that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe was sacked "for misconduct", though there is no indication his firing was related to the FBI's use of a confidential source during the campaign.

Trump was also told that the Russian government was trying to meddle in the election and that Russia played a direct role in hacks against the Democratic National Committee, NBC News reported in October 2016. Paul Manafort, then chair of the campaign, offered to give a briefing on the Trump campaign to a Russian billionaire friend with close ties to Putin.

With Trump, the situation was unique because the FBI was conducting a counterintelligence investigation into his campaign while it was warning him about Russian Federation. "I've never heard the term "spy" used", he told "CBS This Morning".

Abandon ship! Following her racist tweet, everyone is distancing themselves from Roseanne
Trump reveled in the success of " Roseanne " after Barr's character in the show came out as a supporter of his presidency. At one point she suggests that it was Wanda Sykes tweet that tipped the scales in ABC's decision to cancel "Roseanne ".

Giuliani, referring to Trump's Wednesday tweet about Sessions, stressed that Trump had every right - whether in person or on social media - to "express how he feels" about the attorney general, but he suggested it was a distraction to the legal team's efforts to fight back against the ongoing investigation.

Sessions, one of Trumps biggest boosters during the 2016 campaign, recused himself in March 2017 from any investigations related to the campaign. He said Gowdy "worked in lockstep" with other GOP lawmakers to undermine special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of the president.

According to the report, the date, however, is conditional as it comes with the clause from Mueller, which states, "if he is able to interview Trump by mid-July".

Graham says Republicans want to avoid unnecessary drama ahead of the midterm elections.

"Unsure how to proceed", the Times reports, Priebus "simply waited out the president, who never called Mr. Sessions but did attack him that week on Twitter".

"When individuals like that are in the orbit of a major political campaign in America, the FBI.should look at people like that", Rubio said. What he inherited from the FBI under Comey was a counterintelligence investigation, focused on the work of Russia's spy services and their outreach to Americans.

"When you talk to a Democrat and you ask him for what is their very best evidence that there was this supposed collusion, they don't come up with anything", Chaffetz, the former chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said Tuesday on Fox Business Network's "Mornings with Maria".

"He didn't even tell the president he was going to do it", Napolitano added about Sessions' decision to recuse himself.
