Ben Sasse, Susan Collins Warn Trump About Firing Jeff Sessions

Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova said Thursday on a charged "Hannity" interview that Attorney General Jeff Sessions does not understand his job and should give President Trump the "courtesy of a resignation" after the midterm elections.

When asked if he would fire Sessions, Trump did not answer.

Has he considered firing Sessions?

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who oversees the committee that would advance the confirmation of Sessions' replacement, said Thursday he'd have time to consider such a nomination, after last summer declaring his 2017 agenda too full to move such a confirmation.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has responded to Donald Trump's latest attack on him by insisting that the justice department he heads will not bend to political pressure.

"When Jeff recused himself, which I think he should have, any lawyer would have done what Jeff Sessions did.

It's sort of an incredible thing", Trump said in the interview that aired Thursday.

"I put in an attorney general that never took control of the Justice Department".

Sessions, a longtime USA senator and early supporter of Trump's presidential bid, drew Trump's ire when he recused himself in March 2017 from issues involving the 2016 White House race.

Thomas also added that if their father's heart attack had happened before Meghan was famous she would have rushed to his bedside. Evidently, Thomas thinks Meghan isn't extending an olive branch to her dad because she feels she's "above everybody else".

46 unprofitable Sears stores to close in November
Sears Holdings Corp. continues to clean house, announcing plans to shutter an additional 46 unprofitable stores in November. As previously reported by FOX Business, Sears added 43 stores to its list in July, which at that point had increased to 265.

"The President of the United States was and is entitled to a fully engaged attorney general".

Sessions' praising of law enforcement investigators and prosecutors is clearly meant to be interpreted as the attorney general expressing support for Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election interference.

However, Trump told "Fox & Friends" he would "stay uninvolved" in department matters. "What kind of a man is this?!", the POTUS asked, before continuing, claiming to have only given Sessions the job due to his loyalty, adding that Sessions "never took control" of the DOJ. It wasn't clear why Graham would publicly predict Trump will take such a politically explosive action even as the senator said it should be delayed.

"I know this is a hard position for [Sessions] to be in but I think it would be bad for the country, it would be bad for the president, it would be bad for the Department of Justice for him to be forced out under these circumstances", Sen.

That represents a significant shift from Graham's stance a year ago, when he warned Trump publicly that if he fired Sessions "there will be holy hell to pay". "I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action".

And what's come out of Manafort? "It's called flipping and it nearly ought to be illegal". "What's come out of Michael Cohen, no collusion".

"Jeff Sessions never took control of the Justice Department".

Federal prosecutors in NY and the White House declined to comment.
