Donald Trump has escalated his attacks on attorney general Jeff Sessions, suggesting the Department of Justice had put Republicans in mid-term jeopardy with recent indictments of two congressmen. Justice Department lawyers have previously said Rosenstein is aware of the scope and activities of Mueller's investigation.

"I'll see what happens", Trump told Bloomberg.

Mr Trump was also asked about Mr Sessions in the interview, who the President has repeatedly attacked for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign. "It's about the investigation, and I think the Mueller investigation ought to go on unimpeded".

Sessions, in a rare rebuttal, responded that he took control of the department the day he became attorney general and would not allow it to be "improperly influenced by political considerations".

"What's happening is a disgrace, and at some point ... if it doesn't straighten out properly ..."

Trump has mulled firing Sessions for more than a year, openly mad at him because his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation paved the way for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"The president's lost confidence in Jeff Sessions", Graham said.

Last summer, Graham said there would be "holy hell to pay" if Sessions was sacked, but this week, he said the relationship between Trump and Sessions "is not working. I view it as an illegal investigation" because "great scholars" have said that "there never should have been a special counsel". "I hope they can fix these problems, but I don't see that happening anytime soon", Graham said. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who once said that there would be "holy hell to pay" if Trump fired Sessions, now says the president is "entitled to an attorney general he has faith in".
