President Trump is said to be so unhappy with Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he wants to replace Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Axios reported earlier, citing sources.
Trump was not pleased with Sessions recusing himself from the Russia investigation.
However, a tweet from CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins says that Giuliani agrees Sessions made the right call in stepping away from the investigation. The tweet goes on to say that Giuliani is not being considered as a replacement.
In a tweet sent out earlier this morning Trump called Sessions "our beleaguered A.G." and questioned why he isn't "looking into crooked Hillarys [sic] crimes & Russia relations?"
Axios argues that Giuliani wouldn't have an easy time getting the 50 Republican votes needed to confirm him as he was such a staunch Trump supporter when the president first announced his campaign. Giuliani likely wouldn't be seen as an independent watchdog of the Justice Department.
