Napolitano: Sessions 'Shouldn't Have Accepted the Job' as Attorney General

Gowdy FBI acted properly with use of informant during 2016 campaign

In a separate interview Tuesday night with Fox News, Gowdy disputed Trump's claim that the Federal Bureau of Investigation planted a "spy" inside his campaign.

The barrage of criticism marks a stark fall from grace for Sessions, who was once one of Trump's staunchest allies on the campaign trail and who had been the first sitting senator to endorse Trump's presidential bid.

On Wednesday, the president tweet-quoted an interview Rep. Trey Gowdy gave about Sessions' decision to recuse himself, adding "I wish I had" regarding Gowdy's comments that "there are lots of good lawyers in the country".

The South Carolina Republican said the president is frustrated with Sessions because the attorney general did not tell him he would recuse himself from the Justice Department's election meddling probe.

Presidential attorney Rudy Giuliani and former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg say Mr. Trump acted within the bounds of his presidential authority. "I don't know what he was doing", Giuliani said.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday took a shot at U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"That's why the markets and I think most of the country looks at this and says, "Adam Schiff, you promised an bad lot and delivered nothing, because there's a big 'nothing-burger" here, '" Chaffetz continued.

It is expected that Alberto will bring heavy rainfall that will last well into the week and stretch into areas of the Ohio Valley. Meteorologists expect a 60 percent chance of rain with winds at 10 to 20 miles per hour , and gusts of up to 25 miles per hour .

But he added that Trump likely isn't really hoping Sessions will resign, citing the fact that it would be tough to get a new attorney general approved by the Senate any time soon.

Unnamed sources detailed to Axios in a Thursday report additional discussions Trump had with Sessions over the phone and in person about his recusal. Republicans on Capitol Hill want to avoid unnecessary drama ahead of the elections, but once Mueller completes his investigation some are now suggesting it may then be time for Trump and Sessions to part ways.

"He could, but he shouldn't", Giuliani said, pointing to what he called improving poll numbers for Trump. The House intelligence committee investigating allegations of interference and collusion has often devolved into hyperpartisan bickering, competing documents and attempts to drive the media narrative.

Trump has spent almost a year attacking Sessions over his decision in March 2017 to recuse himself from matters related to the Russian Federation investigation.

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

"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.
