Donald Trump Again Tweets Regrets About Choosing Jeff Sessions

Key Republican Trey Gowdy defends FBI against Trump attacks

Republican in Russia probe 'even more convinced' FBI didn't spy on Trump campaign

In a series of tweets, Trump approvingly quoted Gowdy's appearance on CBS This Morning, where he criticised Sessions for removing himself from oversight of the investigation that is now being run by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Sessions, who served as a top surrogate for Trump during his presidential campaign, recused himself previous year from the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that Trump asked Sessions in March 2017 to reverse the decision to recuse himself, and that Mueller is now investigating that request as part of his inquiry into whether Trump sought to obstruct the Russian Federation probe.

Giuliani told the Huffington Post the Mueller probe has not found anything to link Trump's 2016 campaign with Russian Federation and that he thinks the investigation will come to an end soon.

"I think it's fair to call it pressure", a senior administration official said about White House conversations with Sessions and his top aides about the matter.

"They don't like him, they don't think he should be in the office, and they think they know better than you and me - we that voted for him", Nunberg insisted.

Trump has scaled up his attacks of the Mueller investigation in recent days, including suggesting on Tuesday that Mueller's team would meddle in the midterm congressional elections.

President Trump's battle with Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials is heating up and he wants the truth to be revealed about Federal Bureau of Investigation spying on his presidential campaign.

Mueller's prosecutors have so far obtained guilty pleas from five individuals, including three former Trump campaign staffers, and indictments of 14 other people and three companies.

CNN even pulled Fox News into the mix with a chyron proclaiming, "GOP's Gowdy Refutes Trump, Nunes, Fox "Spy" Conspiracy".

Trump and Giuliani tried to label that informant a spy and invented the term "spygate" in hopes of discrediting Mueller's investigation, but those efforts appear not to have caught on.

"Jeff Sessions comes in the department with somewhat of a reputation as being somewhat political and tied to the White House, and then to initially ignore the advice of ethics officials, I think it would have cost some credibility in the building and would have made it much more hard for him to serve as attorney general of the United States", said Gonzales.

"Members of Congress, Democrat and Republican, are going to be informed a lot by their constituents".

Gowdy said Sessions should have told Trump before accepting the job that he had a conflict of interest and would need to recuse himself from such investigations.
