Jeff Sessions has recently declared that he may leave his role as Attorney General if US President Donald Trump fires his colleague, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Washington Post.
Sessions feared the meeting would be confrontational and might lead to Rosenstein's dismissal, but according to McGahn the conversation remained cordial, the Post reported on Saturday. Another source told the Post that Sessions did not want to threaten the White House so much as explain that it would make his position untenable.
The phone call came amid a series of attacks on Rosenstein and special counsel Robert Mueller by Trump, following the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on April 9 on the home and office of the President's personal attorney Michael Cohen.
The Division of Justice didn't instantly reply to a request for remark from Fox Information.
Trump has regularly attacked Sessions, 71, a former five-term Alabama Republican senator, since recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation previous year. Trump may not officially be a target, but Mueller hasn't ruled out making him one at some point in the future, according to a USA official with knowledge of the unfolding investigation. He's also reportedly called Rosenstein "Mr. Peepers", a 1950s sitcom character.
Alvarez banned for 6 months for doping By
Golden Boy Promotions said Alvarez "looks forward to returning to the ring in September for Mexican Independence Day weekend". TMZ noted Alvarez was scheduled for a rematch with Gennady Golovkin on May 5, but that date had already been canceled.
Yet even that alignment has not prevented Trump from not only attacking Sessions, but also stating that he regrets hiring him in the first place, telling reporters on multiple occasions that he would not have appointed Sessions if he had known he would recuse himself.
Meanwhile, sources familiar with the call say Sessions wasn't threatening to resign, but was highlighting the hard situation he would be put in if Rosenstein was sacked.
Ever since Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided the home and office of his lawyer Michael Cohen earlier this month, Trump has been egged on by some of his strongest supporters to strike back at Mueller.
On policy, Trump has embraced a great deal of what Sessions is doing at the Justice Department.
The official added that Sessions has regularly sought guidance from the White House about Rosenstein's standing in the president's eyes and has asked about his interactions with Trump.
