Mr. Sessions had flown to Florida because Mr. Trump was refusing to take his calls about a pressing decision on his travel ban.

Trump also has privately complained that Sessions has not adequately defended him, multiple sources have told CNN over the past year. I don't know they've aired them out yet.

"I think defensive briefings are done a lot".

Gowdy said on CBS News, to which Trump added, "And I wish I did!"

The President's regret was sent out in an early morning tweet to his 52.3 million followers.

Gowdy's statement was made after he was asked if Trump may have obstructed justice when he asked Sessions in March 2017 to reverse the decision that recused him from the Russian Federation probe, as reported by The New York Times. "He is entitled to ask Jeff Sessions to unrecuse himself from this investigation".

She got the call just before midnight Sunday and was able to get in Monday morning to watch a chapter of her life come to an end. But last week, civil defense authorities acknowledged that at least 200 people have remained in the communities.

Rudy Giuliani says if the president decides to fire Sessions and Rosenstein, it won't happen until after Robert Mueller completes the Russian Federation investigation. But Gowdy said the Federal Bureau of Investigation acted properly.

"Only if and when we find that this was handled appropriately and there's some evidence on which they can base this phony investigation, will we have him testify", Giuliani said on "Hannity" on Wednesday. "At the end of the day", Gonzales notes, "the president can remove the Attorney General or any other Cabinet official for any reason or for no reason". The person expressed sympathy, but argued against firing Sessions. But in an interview Wednesday, Gingrich said Sessions was "not doing his job" and was applying his recusal too broadly. He is widely viewed as determined to stay in the job because he believes in the president's agenda, which largely mirrors his own interests, and is reluctant to leave a job for which he gave up a Senate seat.

There may be a limit to how long the campaign to save Sessions can hold on. "Oh, it's so awful to work for Donald Trump, ' - but they don't leave, do they?"

But Graham added, these are "not lifetime appointments".

Gowdy, for his part, is one of more than three dozen Republicans serving in Congress to announce they won't seek another term in the November midterm elections, when all 435 seats in the legislative body will be contested. "The president would have every right to ask him to unrecuse himself".
