Trump ‘Not Concerned’ About Sessions Mueller Interview

Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday afternoon that he was not worried about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and denied that FBI Director Christopher Wray threatened to resign recently.

Sessions sat down with Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election for hours last week, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The interview likely focused on Sessions’s role in the Trump 2016 campaign and any possible effort by the president to obstruct the FBI investigation.

Trump also denied to reporters that Wray threatened to resign over an alleged pressure campaign from the White House and Sessions to fire deputy director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was deeply involved in the investigation of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
