US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in "weak position"

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in

Trump reiterated his disappointment in Sessions during a joint press conference Tuesday with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and said "time will tell" whether or not he will fire Sessions.

The president's anger over Sessions" decision to recuse himself from the government's investigation of Russian meddling in the United States election burst into public view on Monday when he referred to Sessions in a tweet as "beleaguered'.

In an early morning tweet directed at the former senator, Trump said he was "very weak" on pursuing Hillary Clinton and intelligence leaks.

Trump claimed in an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday that he would never have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions if he had known that Sessions was going to bow out of the Russian Federation investigation.

Comey was overseeing an FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.

Three hours and 56 minutes later, Graham lambasted Trump for his comments about the former Alabama senator.

Sessions "made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department" in recusing himself from the investigation, Giuliani told CNN on Monday after landing at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Trump also kicked off the week on Monday by asking why the "beleaguered" Sessions wasn't looking into what Trump alleged were Hillary Clinton's "crimes and Russian Federation relations". "But I'm very disappointed in Jeff Sessions", he added.

The president has continued to attack Sessions on Twitter, calling the attorney general "beleaguered" Monday.

Turning on Jeff Sessions - one of Mr Trump's earliest and most loyal supporters - is hardly a way of inspiring them to take a political risk for their President.

The tweet itself may not be an impeachable offense, however former George W. Bush ethics lawyer Richard Painter believes that such a message, when combined with his past statements and tweets, could and should result in Trump's impeachment.

Sessions said last week that he would remain in his position as long as it was appropriate. "I then have - which, frankly, I think is very unfair to the president".
