'I don't have an Attorney General': Trump attacks Sessions

I don’t have an attorney-general’ Trump slams Sessions in Oval Office interview

Mr. Sessions said his predecessors at the department pushed "disastrous" consent decrees with communities, putting new restrictions on how police could carry out their duties.

In an interview with Hill TV, posted late Tuesday, the president said he is unhappy with the current state of affairs on the US border and "other things", without elaborating.

"He gets in and probably because of the experience that he had going through the nominating when somebody asked him the first question about Hillary Clinton or something he said, 'I recuse myself, I recuse myself,"' Trump said.

"I'm so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me", Trump told the Hill.

"It's very sad", Trump said in an interview with Hill.TV, in which he also said the former senator from Alabama came off as "mixed up and confused" when he appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee in January 2017.

The attorney general is yet to respond to Mr Trump's comments. President Trump said on Tuesday that he's disappointed in the attorney general's job performance for a number of reasons, beyond his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation. "I'm very disappointed in Jeff", he said. Answers that should have been easily answered.

A resignation by Sessions would open the way for Trump to appoint a new attorney general, one unconstricted from directing Rosenstein and Mueller.

Trump says he wants to hear from Kavanaugh accuser
Hirono is part of the Senate Judiciary Committee tasked to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and vote on his nomination. One of Kavanaugh's friends was in the room and Kavanaugh covered her mouth to stop her from screaming, she said.

But on Tuesday, Trump suggested during an Oval Office interview with Hill.TV that his frustration with Sessions' performance far exceeds just his recusal. And Sessions has made clear to associates that he has no intention of leaving his job voluntarily despite Trump's constant criticism.

Asked whether he would consider firing Mr Sessions, the president responded: "We'll see what happens".

In an early 2017 email to a Session's aide, the Federal Bureau of Investigation concluded that he did not need to reveal contacts with foreign government officials that were made during his work as a senator.

The attorney general has said he won't bow to political pressure and that he recused himself citing Department of Justice regulations that he says are pertinent because he was involved in the Trump campaign.

Sessions took the action because he himself had been an official in Trump's campaign, and because he had contacts with Russia's ambassador during the election battle. In addition, rapes more than tripled and vehicle theft and aggravated assault went up by a third, according to the attorney general.
