Trump is so regretting Jeff Sessions right about now
President Trump had five words after hearing Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy said he could've picked someone besides Jeff Session for attorney general: "And I wish I did!" Trump's tweet followed a New York Times report that investigators want to know just how Trump tried to persuade Sessions not to back out from the Russia investigation because of his Russian contacts. Meanwhile, a Senate panel is readying Congress' last chance to weigh in on Russia, and those on the committee — from Trump fan Tom Cotton to Trump critic Kamala Harris — remain hopeful they'll reach a bipartisan conclusion on whether Trump's campaign colluded with Putin & Co. Meanwhile, a legal defense fund has been launched for millionaire Paul Manafort.
