Trump Turns Sessions' Words Against Him in New Blast

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks during a news conference regarding the country's opioid epidemic on Wednesday

He also renewed his attacks on Mr Sessions in an apparent attempt to have him end investigations that could endanger his presidency. He paraphrased Sessions' statement about the Justice Department not being improperly influenced by political considerations. "I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action", Sessions said in a direct response to Trump's interview. "He has never had that", diGenova said.

Another element of Trump's bad week is his public feud with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Scaramucci said he understands the President's frustrations even if he's not sure it's a good idea to be so public about it. "As a general manner, I think it's more effective to do it privately than publicly because it undermines the department, the attorney general, and also hurts the morale of the Department of Justice". "It's sort of an incredible thing", Trump said on Fox News. The president was asked about speculation that Sessions may be fired after the election. "But when everybody sees what's going on in the Justice Department - I always put "Justice" now with quotes - it's a very, very sad day".

"With the election coming in November, all this news about his former associate Michael Cohen and former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. threatens Republicans positions in the November elections".

That's in stark contrast to what he said in July 2017.

He then listed what he said were examples of such foul play: Hillary Clinton emails that were deleted, what he called lies by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and what Trump described as conflicts of interest affecting Robert Mueller - the special counsel who is investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation.

Final season of 'Game of Thrones' delayed yet again
First-look footage from the upcoming final series of Game Of Thrones shows Jon Snow and his half-sister Sansa Stark reuniting. It's the briefest look at the new season. "So we'll still have quite a lot to do on season eight when they're beginning".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is running the Russian Federation probe, is "highly conflicted" and "real corruption goes untouched", Trump continued. Trump blaming all of this on Sessions' recusal.

Mr Trump has been vociferous in his criticism of the Department of Justice.

He said that instead, Sessions should have called for a special counsel to investigate how the Hillary Clinton email case was handled by the DOJ, and to "investigate the conduct of the people at senior levels" of the department.

Cabrera asked if he would be helping Trump fire Sessions if he was still in the White House.

Tuesday's verdict came as Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign-finance violations and other charges, saying he made payments to influence the 2016 election at the direction of a candidate for federal office.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp couldnt be less interested in Alisson transfer fee
Karius will make his loan deal permanent if he makes enough appearances for Besitkas and the club qualify for European football. Besiktas have completed the signing of Loris Karius on a two-year loan, Liverpool confirmed on Saturday.

Trump said it might be better if "flipping" - co-operating with prosecutors in exchange for more favourable treatment - were illegal because people co-operating with the government "just make up lies" to get favourable treatment.

That case was referred to authorities in NY by the special counsel's office.

The South Carolina senator predicted this week, the president would eventually be appointing a new attorney general, shortly after the midterms. He told Bloomberg on Thursday that the door might now be open to hearings for a replacement.

But Trump on Saturday tweeting that "real corruption goes untouched".
