President Donald Trump escalated his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying, "I don't have an attorney general". Trump, in a Hill.TV interview released Wednesday, said that he's "so sad over Jeff Sessions," whom he has repeatedly denounced for having recused himself from the Russia investigation.Trump has repeatedly asserted that Sessions, a former U.S. senator from Alabama, did not need to step away from the Russia probe, a move the president believes in part led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russians.Trump, a Republican, suggested that Sessions' rocky Senate confirmation hearings may have impacted his performance as attorney general.Trump also broadened his attacks beyond the recusal, saying he's unhappy with Sessions' performance on several issues.Trump has repeatedly considered firing Sessions, the nation's top law enforcement officer, only to be opposed by aides who think a dismissal would upend the Russia investigation, conservatives who applaud Sessions' hard-line stances at the Department of Justice and Republican senators who have said they would not confirm a replacement.
