Sessions allies say He will Weather Trump’s Wrath
The Hill | Senators close to Attorney General Jeff Sessions predict their former colleague will stay at President Trump’s side despite a significant row over his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.
Republican senators viewed reports that Sessions is on thin ice as more reflective of what they call Trump’s unpredictable and impatient nature than anything else.
“I really believe their relationship is good and a lot of people aren’t happy with that and will try to use all the quotes they can to make it look bad,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), one of Sessions’s closest friends in the Senate.
“I would be disappointed but I’d be more surprised,” Inhofe said of the likelihood of Session’s stepping down as attorney general. “It’s just not going to happen.”
