White House won't say if Trump has confidence in AG Sessions

Two days before former FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, President Donald Trump's world continues to unravel right before our very eyes.

"I have not had a discussion with him about that", Spicer said as sources said Trump is still fuming over Sessions' recusal from the federal investigation into potential ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation.

An administration official told CNN that Trump's frustration with Sessions dates back to March 2, when Sessions suddenly recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation amid pressure from Democrats on Capitol Hill.

When asked if the Trump's tweets should be considered official statements from the White House, Spicer appeared incredulous.

Trump's anger over the recusal has not diminished with time.

The decision was prompted by Sessions' failure to disclose conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States during his confirmation hearing.

ABC News first reported Tuesday that Sessions offered to resign.

Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokesperson, declined to comment on the ABC story when emailed by Business Insider.

"The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.", Trump tweeted Monday, ignoring the fact that he oversees the department and signed the second version of the ban.

The order has recently been blocked by federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii among others, and lawyers from the Justice Department have been careful to avoid referring to it as a 'travel ban'. "I think the danger is real, the law is clear, and there's no question that we should prevail at the supreme court", Spicer said.

Trump's relationship with Sessions, though, is much stronger and longer-standing than his relationship ever was with Comey.
