Trump to Bloomberg: Sessions’ job is safe until at least November elections

Leave Jeff Sessions alone

President Donald Trump said on Thursday Attorney General Jeff Sessions was safe in his job until November but warned, at a campaign-style rally in IN, that he would "get involved" if the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department didn't "start doing their job".

"Our Justice Department and our Federal Bureau of Investigation - at the top of each, because inside they have incredible people - but our Justice Department and our Federal Bureau of Investigation have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now", Trump said.

"I just would love to have him do a great job", Trump told Bloomberg.

Mr Trump was also asked about Mr Sessions in the interview, who the President has repeatedly attacked for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election campaign.

Trump has belittled Sessions in conversations with Republican senators in the past week, Politico reported. "I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly ..."

It said the President declined to comment when asked whether he would keep Mr Sessions in office beyond November.

In an interview with Bloomberg News Thursday, Trump called the Russian Federation investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller illegal and criticized Sessions for not helping to put it to an end.

"[He] never took control of the Justice Department and it's a sort of an incredible thing", Trump continued. "I view it as an illegal investigation".

Another blow in Mr Trump's long-running feud with Mr Sessions, the president's complaint fits with his pattern of viewing the Department of Justice less as a law enforcement agency and more as a department that is supposed to do his political bidding.

"Knowing him as I do, I don't think he'll quit", Inhofe said Tuesday by telephone from Washington. He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched". Sessions, in a rare statement, fired back, issuing a statement that said, "I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in". He's spent the last week chatting with "any senator who will listen" about how angry he is at Sessions, one Republican Senate aide said - including Sen.
