President Trump is said to be pushing Jeff Sessions out of his position and replacing him with former mayor Rudy Giuliani. This came from anonymous sources.
There is no question that President Trump is unhappy with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He feels Sessions hasn’t defended him and should never have recused himself in the Russia investigation.
Trump took another swipe at Sessions today.
So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?

Donald Trump wants to know why Hillary Clinton isn’t also being investigated. To be fair, she should be investigated, along with Bill and The Clinton Foundation. Why isn’t Sessions investigating Hillary?
We have a far-left Democratic Party, a corrupt media that is in bed with them, and a Republican Party that won’t fight. You would think Republicans lost this last election. We are fighting for our future as a Republic and who is fighting with us?
The New York Post is reporting that President Trump is considering naming Rudy Giuliani to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The president is so unhappy with Sessions, who he criticized last week for recusing himself from the Russia investigations, that he is thinking of bringing back the former mayor to run the Justice Department, Axios reported, citing sources.
Trump told the New York Times in an interview last week that Sessions’ decision to recuse himself was “very unfair to the president.”
“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump said.
A day later, Sessions, a former senator from Alabama, said he was “completely confident” he could continue running the Justice Department.
Mr. Sessions said he “loves the job” and will continue doing it as long as it is appropriate.
Axios said the president is looking at Giuliani as he gears up for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the election and whether Trump campaign officials assisted.
Giuliani, a staunch supporter of Trump’s, lobbied for the position of secretary of state and then attorney general.
But by December, Giuliani told the president that he would remove his name from consideration for a Cabinet post and said the only job he was really interested in was secretary of state. Many in the media speculated it was a problem of vetting and his company’s ties to foreign interests.
“He offered me some Cabinet positions, which I’m very, very thankful for. It just didn’t work out in terms of my private life,” Giuliani told Fox & Friends.
