Donald Trump trashed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not protecting him from the Russia investigation and hinted that he would fire special counsel Robert Mueller if he tries to investigate Trump or his families finances.
"Mr. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned that investigators would cross a red line if they delve into Trump family finances..."
"If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild word — to the president."
"They're going to get somebody, and they're going to get him for something. And they're probably going to go to jail."
"If President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and then got Special Counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings."
