On Friday's "Shepard Smith Reporting", "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace discussed President Trump's criticisms of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and stated that Sessions' recusal didn't lead to the appointment of Speical Counsel Robert Mueller.
Thursday he told the outlet, "I do question what Jeff is doing".
Two of Donald Trump's fiercest Republican critics have suddenly taking a liking to the president - and with it, come around to his views on Russian Federation. "He won't. He might get fired, but I don't think he'll quit". "Good job Jeff." In response, Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse said, "The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice-one for the majority party and one for the minority party", in a rebuke of the president and a member of his own party.
"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly".
"I just would love to have him do a great job", Bloomberg quoted Trump as saying in the Oval Office.
Another blow in Mr Trump's long-running feud with Mr Sessions, the president's complaint fits with his pattern of viewing the Department of Justice less as a law enforcement agency and more as a department that is supposed to do his political bidding.
"[He] never took control of the Justice Department and it's a sort of an incredible thing", Trump continued.
Trump said in a Twitter post on Saturday that Sessions "doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position". "I view it as an illegal investigation [because] great scholars [have said] there should never have been a special counsel". He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".
Sixty-four percent of respondents - including 47 percent of Republicans - do not believe Trump should fire Sessions, while 19 percent believe the President should dismiss his attorney general.
