Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions

Posted June 08, 2017

As the nation awaits former FBI Director James Comey's impending testimony before Congress, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the president might not even watch. Spicer said, "I have not had a discussion with him (Trump) about that".

"The president is president of the United States", Spicer said. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who last month was appointed special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, now oversees the investigation. Former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify Thursday about his private discussions with Trump and the Russian Federation investigation has lapped into the White House, with questions about the President's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner.

But in March, Sessions made a decision to recuse himself from any investigations into possible Russian involvement in the 2016 elections, after it was disclosed that he had met twice with the Russian ambassador to the USA previous year.

The Times reported that Trump "has intermittently fumed for months over" Sessions' recusal from all Russian Federation matters, citing individuals close to the president. That was after he failed to disclose a conversation with Russia's ambassador to the United States during his confirmation hearing.

Sessions' decision to recuse himself in March reportedly infuriated President Trump - anger that, according to ABC News, The New York Times and others, has not yet subsided.

The reporter then inquired if Trump is concerned that his tweets could be used against him in matters like the proposed travel ban. Trump rewarded Sessions after his election with one of the most coveted jobs in any administration, the opportunity to lead the Justice Department.

Trump also lashed out at the Department of Justice (DOJ) through a tweet Monday where he expressed his frustration over the "watered down" version of the travel ban that has been presented for approval before the Supreme Court.

Sessions was the first sitting U.S. senator to endorse Trump and became one of his top advisers on the campaign trail.
