President Donald Trump said Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions's job will be safe at least until after the midterm elections in November, a claim that could signal the possible end of the president's ongoing feud with his top law enforcement officer.

Trump has called the investigation a "witch hunt" and routinely questions why the Justice Department isn't investigating Hillary Clinton. But now the attorneys are becoming convinced Mueller will try to make the case regardless of what Trump decides to do with Sessions.

Sessions, who served as a senator from Alabama for 20 years, continues to have a strong support from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who told reporters Tuesday he has "total confidence in the attorney general".

The sides discussed expansion of relations in various areas and highlighted the necessity of close cooperation among the Islamic countries.

"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly". Though they once cautioned him that dismissing Sessions would feed special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump's potential obstruction of justice, these people say, Trump's legal team has become increasingly convinced Mueller will make that case regardless of whether the president fires Sessions or leaves him in place...

"I just would love to have him do a great job", the president said.

But despite Trump's unhappiness with Sessions, when asked if he would keep him employed past midterms, Bloomberg reports, Trump declined to answer. "I view it as an illegal investigation" because "great scholars" have said that "there never should have been a special counsel".

Last week, in an interview with Fox, Trump lashed out at Sessions, saying he failed to take control of the Department of Justice.

"I think you serve at the pleasure of the president", Graham said.

"The president's lost confidence in Jeff Sessions", Graham said. He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".
