Giuliani: Trump won't fire Sessions, Rosenstein before end of Russian Federation probe

Alberto Gonzales, one of Jeff Sessions predecessors as Attorney General, tells Alisyn Camerota on CNN's New Day that Donald Trump won't be able to push Sessions out of the job through passive-aggressive tweeting.

Gowdy told CBS This Morning, "there are lots of really good lawyers in the country".

President Trump on Wednesday took to Twitter to once again air his displeasure with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

White House chief of staff John Kelly and President Trump's White House lawyer handling the Russian Federation investigation helped broker last week's meetings with lawmakers regarding the classified information on an alleged informant who made contact with members of the Trump campaign.

He said he believed Trump should sit down for an interview with special prosecutor Robert Mueller, something the president has balked at. Trump reportedly unleashed a bevy of insults against Sessions, calling him an "idiot" and accusing him of being disloyal.

Gowdy said in his interviews that Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have made clear to him that Trump was never a target of the FBI's investigation.

From Solo's ending, it's also apparent that Lucasfilm had planned more installments in the story of the scruffy-looking scoundrel. Not even Hollis tried to sugarcoat Solo's global performance so far, which includes a paltry $10.1 million launch in China.

Two sources told Axios that Trump stopped short of ordering Sessions to undo his recusal, but rather told the attorney general he'd be a "hero" among conservatives if he did "the right thing" and reasserted oversight of the investigation.

During Gowdy's interview on CBS, he also responded to reports the Federal Bureau of Investigation had a "spy" or confidential informant in the Trump campaign leading up to the 2016 election.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment on Giuliani's statements.

Graham says while he shares some of Trump's frustrations with the situation - particularly the Justice Department's resistance to appointing a second special counsel to investigate the handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe - he doesn't expect Sessions will depart "any time soon". "That's how I read that", Gowdy said.

Lawmakers demanded the briefing following reports that a government informant approached Trump campaign officials. Giuliani on Wednesday only offered assurances Mr. Trump would not fire Sessions during the Mueller investigation, because of the "distraction" it would cause.

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters - a secret type of subpoena - officials said.
