"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.

"I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly".

The willingness of Republican senators to turn on Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the result of a furious lobbying campaign from President Donald Trump, who for the past 10 days has been venting his anger at Sessions to "any senator who will listen", as one GOP Senate aide put it...

"I'd love to have him look at the other side", Trump said.

The website, which conducted an Oval Office interview with the president Thursday, reported that Trump declined to comment when asked if he'd keep Sessions on beyond November.

Trump mentioned the prospect of firing Sessions during a phone call with Graham last week.

In his interview with Dickerson, Graham said the problems between the president and Sessions "go well beyond" Sessions' recusal from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, and the president "needs a Cabinet he's confident in".

"Last game, Phil Foden was not in the squad and I was so sad for Phil like I am so sad for Leroy", Guardiola said. Aguero, who scored eight goals in City's last two home games against Newcastle , was held silent on Saturday.

When asked in the Bloomberg News interview whether he would comply if Mr Mueller issued a subpoena for him to appear for questioning, Mr Trump said: "I'll see what happens". But now the attorneys are becoming convinced Mueller will try to make the case regardless of what Trump decides to do with Sessions. "I view it as an illegal investigation [because] great scholars [have said] there should never have been a special counsel".

Trump has raged against Jeff Sessions since his decision to recuse himself from Russia-related matters previous year.

Meanwhile, Republican senators have shown new openness to a new attorney general.

Trump said in a Twitter post on Saturday that Sessions "doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position". He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

Graham told some media outlets last week he believes the president may replace Sessions after the November midterm elections, following the president's repeated attacks on the nation's top law enforcement officer.

The comments prompted a pointed response from Sessions, who said in a statement that "While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations".
