Don't fire Jeff Sessions, aides urge Donald Trump

09 June 2017

On Wednesday Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say whether Trump had confidence in Sessions for the second day in a row, according to a report by Axios.

President Donald Trump (L-R), joined by Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Vice President Mike Pence, senior advisor Steve Bannon, Communications Director Sean Spicer and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, speaks by phone with Russia's President Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, January 28, 2017. "If he didn't, they wouldn't be here".

The White House's ongoing silence on Wednesday on what should be a simple assurance about a sitting Cabinet secretary is all the more striking because it comes on the heels of reports that Sessions recently offered to resign amid tensions with Trump. His decision in March to recuse himself from the investigation between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation was not known to Trump until moments before it occurred. "The American people would not tolerate someone being part of the campaign investigating the campaign". The statement doesn't mention Sessions' undisclosed contacts with Russia's ambassador.

On Monday morning, Trump directly criticized the Department of Justice for its handling of his executive order barring travel to the United States from several majority-Muslim countries that was twice struck down nationwide by appeals courts.
