"Our Justice Department and our Federal Bureau of Investigation - at the top of each, because inside they have incredible people - but our Justice Department and our Federal Bureau of Investigation have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now", Trump said.

Asked if he would comply with a subpoena from Mueller, Trump said, "I'll see what happens" and added: "I view it differently".

Trump on Monday blasted Sessions and lamented the indictments of Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins who were his earliest supporters in the Congress during the 2016 election, suggesting they should not have been charged because they are Republicans, the CNN reported.

"What's happening is a disgrace, and at some point ... if it doesn't straighten out properly ..." For now. That comes from an interview President Trump gave Bloomberg today in which he declared he would not fire Sessions before the midterm elections. Sessions, in a rare statement, fired back, issuing a statement that said, "I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in".

Sessions infuriated Trump by recusing himself from the investigation into alleged Trump-Russia ties past year which prompted Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel leading the inquiry.

"I just would love to have him do a great job", Bloomberg quoted Trump as saying in the Oval Office. Several aides said Graham is annoyed with Sessions because he opposes a criminal justice reform bill he supports. "I view it as an illegal investigation". "I hope they can fix these problems, but I don't see that happening anytime soon", Graham said. In an interview on Fox News, Trump complained that "I put in an attorney general that never took control of the Justice Department". But on Thursday, the president said that Sessions is safe - at least until the election.
