Almost two-thirds oppose firing Sessions, back Mueller

Firing Jeff Sessions could open a can of worms for Donald Trump

"I just would love to have him do a great job, ' Trump told Bloomberg in an interview Thursday, offering something less than praise for Sessions" performance.

And last week Trump said Sessions "never took control of the Justice Department", which Sessions quickly rebuffed.

Sessions, in a rare rebuttal, responded that he took control of the department the day he became attorney general and would not allow it to be "improperly influenced by political considerations". The recusal allowed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller to investigate Russian Federation in May 2017, just days after the president fired FBI Director James Comey.

"Knowing him as I do, I don't think he'll quit", Inhofe said Tuesday by telephone from Washington.

Trump, who has been venting about Sessions for months and has fumed about his AG's recusal from the Russian Federation probe, indicated Thursday Sessions is safe at least through the November elections.

As for Mueller - whose investigation Trump called "illegal" in the Bloomberg interview - 63 percent of respondents support his investigation while 29 percent oppose. "Yes, I think we can find that person after the election, if that's what the president wants". Trump complains that Sessions has been disloyal and disgraceful, that he has gone soft on Hillary Clinton and the "deep state", and even that he talks amusing.

Graham told some media outlets last week he believes the president may replace Sessions after the November midterm elections, following the president's repeated attacks on the nation's top law enforcement officer.

I think he knows that by staying at his attorney general's job, he is actually helping President Trump politically.

"I have total confidence in the attorney general".

Now it's being reported that the president is personally lobbying GOP senators to flip on his attorney general. Despite his repeated public criticism, Trump has told people he is wary of crossing a line with Mueller by firing Sessions.

Asked about Flood on Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "People like him".

The filing said Underwood continued the "inflammatory rhetoric, stating publicly that she considers her battles with the President "the most important work (she) has ever done" and has vowed that such 'work will continue'".

Forty-seven percent of Republicans want to keep Sessions, compared to 31 percent who want him removed.
