Giuliani reveals what Trump will do about Jeff Sessions - and when

In a series of Tweets, Trump said "I wish I did" pick someone other than Sessions to head the Department of Justice, citing comments from longtime Sessions opponent SC Rep. Trey Gowdy.

Gowdy said the problem wasn't necessarily that there had been any wrongdoing in that case but that Sessions hadn't said before he became attorney general that he felt he couldn't take part in the matter.

The attorney general reasoned that because he was a member of Trump's campaign, he was obligated to recuse himself from the Justice Department's investigation into potential collusion with Russian Federation.

"I would have considered it, sure", Giuliani told HuffPost on Wednesday, adding that he told Trump this when Sessions removed himself from oversight of any related Justice Department probe in March 2017.

"The sustained pressure made several officials uncomfortable, because they viewed it as improper and worry that it could be politically and legally problematic", Axios reported. "But the allegations by [Trump's lawyer, Rudy] Giuliani over the weekend which would us to believe that the Trump people think the Federal Bureau of Investigation had an undercover agent who inveigled his way into the campaign and was there as a spy on the campaign seem to be baseless".

After Facebook, Twitter also sold data to Cambridge Analytica
However, their request was turned down by the myPersonality app team in 2013 because of the company's political ambitions. Tech-Giant Facebook has suspended roughly 200 apps from its platform as a part of the ongoing investigation.


Responding to the Times report on Tuesday, legal expert and former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti argued in a series of tweets that Trump's "repeated attempts to push Sessions to reassert control over the Russian Federation investigation" constitute "very strong evidence" that the president has obstructed justice. And, they said, it could alienate those in Mr. Trump's conservative base, supporters enamored with the attorney general's tough stances on law enforcement and immigration.

'Why not tell Trump?' the host had asked on the radio. "He offered it to me", Giuliani said. But Wednesday's tweets "show that the subject is still very much on his mind, rekindling fears that he might choose to fire Sessions and derail Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe".

"They don't like him, they don't think he should be in the office, and they think they know better than you and me - we that voted for him", Nunberg insisted.

But former Obama administration intelligence officials and lawmakers rebuked Trump and downplayed his concerns, insisting that the informant didn't infiltrate the Trump campaign and wasn't really spying.
