President Trump has been publicly criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter, calling him "beleaguered" on Monday and accusing him Tuesday of having "taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes." Trump is reportedly contemplating replacing Sessions, and when asked Tuesday about the possibility, he reiterated his disappointment with Sessions' handling of leaks. "Time will tell," Trump said of Sessions' future. Trump's beef with Sessions, laid out in The New York Times, is that Sessions recused himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged collusion with Moscow. Despite Trump's digs, Sessions' chief of staff reportedly told Reince Priebus that the attorney general has no intention of resigning, and in fact, "plans to move forward with his agenda in the department."
