Trump tweets he wishes he didn’t pick Sessions as AG

Attorney General Jeff Sessions pauses while speaking at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the Department of Justice's budget on Capitol Hill, Wednesday, April 25, 2018, in Washington.

Citing Gowdy's comment that "there are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!"

Gowdy emphasized the goal was to find out about Russia's interference in the election, not to spy on Trump's campaign - the opposite of what Trump has said.

Gowdy was responding to a question about whether Trump may have obstructed justice in reportedly asking Sessions in March 2017 to reverse his decision to recuse himself in the probe, as The New York Times reported.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the "13 Angry Democrats" in recent weeks, and he's also accused the Department of Justice of placing a spy inside his campaign.

"I don't think the president should do it and I've told him so", said Giuliani. Just last week, Trump tweeted a quote from Napolitano apparently delivered on Fox News: "It's clear that they had eyes and ears all over the Trump Campaign", Trump quoted Napolitano as saying.

"I wish I did!"

Shots Fired At Indiana Middle School, Suspect In Custody
Bruce Barnes, a public information officer with Noblesville Police Department, began his comments at an afternoon news conference. Jason Seaman , the teacher being dubbed a hero for stopping the shooter, has been released from the hospital.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said he sees "no evidence" to support President Trump's claims that the FBI used an informant to gather information on his campaign, but that instead the federal probe was focused on "individuals with a history of links to Russian Federation that were concerning".

Gowdy told Fox News that the Federal Bureau of Investigation made proper use of a confidential informant.

Gowdy's comments that undermine the president's claims are particularly striking because of his role as a powerful GOP watchdog who took on Democrat Hillary Clinton in his committee's investigation into the 2012 attack on an American mission in Benghazi, Libya, while she was secretary of state. Trump asked a crowd at a campaign rally in Tennessee.

When critics such as House intelligence committee ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., don't say that Trump isn't a target, they're "doing a disservice to all our fellow citizens", Gowdy said. Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus had previously been told by Mr. Trump in July that Sessions had to go, but Priebus delayed, and Mr. Trump ultimately let go of the idea of forcing Session to resign. The same day, Trump's lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani said the president will not agree to an interview with the special counsel until prosecutors allow the president's legal team to review documents related to the FBI's use of the source.

In the latest flare-up, Gowdy and other House Republicans demanded to see classified information about the origin of the investigation into Trump's campaign, including details about the FBI's use of an informant.

Gowdy told Fox News that he thought Trump should grant an interview to Mueller and his investigators in order to clear all this up.

On Wednesday, Gowdy said he had "never heard the term "spy" used" and did not see evidence of it.
