Donald Trump boasts he 'has the complete power to pardon'

Trump is also exploring alleged potential conflicts by Robert Mueller, which could be an avenue to justify his removal as special counsel, according to the Post.

The President had tweeted earlier that Mr Sessions was "beleaguered" and asking why he was not looking into 2016 election opponent Hillary Clinton's alleged financial ties to Russian Federation.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that Kislyak told his superiors in Moscow past year that he had discussed campaign-related matters with Sessions, contrary to what Sessions has said about those meetings.

It is obvious that President Trump has serious issues associated with his personal or business dealings with Russian Federation that he does not want uncovered by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

Democrats did not escape Mr Trump's twitter rantings as he turned his attention to the investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the presidential election.

Giuliani also batted down any suggestion that Trump was considering him to replace Sessions as the U.S. Attorney General.

Brennan and Clapper also criticized Trump's remarks in a tweet earlier this year about US spy agencies in which he accused them of practices reminiscent of Nazi Germany. He says he can fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director for any reason he wants (and he admitted to the most outrageous of reasons in interviews and in discussion with the Russian ambassador). It came as Republicans in the Senate struggled to come together on a bill to overhaul President Barack Obama's health care law.

Sessions said he had no plans to resign. In the end, convincing them to uphold their sworn duty to protect the United States of America will be up to you, me and everyone we know.

Sessions was the first cabinet appointment from Trump, as a reward for Sessions being the first sitting Senator to endorse Trump in early 2016. "Make a recess appointment of a replacement attorney general and that would allow that person to serve as attorney general without Senate confirmation until, I think, 2019".

Asked if Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and top adviser, should have his security clearance canceled for initially failing to list on a disclosure form contacts he had with Russians, Clapper said it should be suspended pending a review.

Sessions, Giuliani told CNN, "made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department".
