President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that if the president wants to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he should wait until special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is over.
“He’s not going to fire him before this is over,” Giuliani told reporters Wednesday. “Nor do I think he should.”
Trump has asked multiple times if Sessions should have been fired, Giuliani told The Associated Press Wednesday. The president is not currently considering firing Sessions; however, he still wonders if not previously firing him was the right call, according to the news agency.
“There’s no doubt he’s complained about him, there’s no doubt he has some grievances,” Giuliani told reporters.
Giuliani’s protection of Sessions comes after Trump tweeted Wednesday that he wished he picked someone else for attorney general. (RELATED: Trump: ‘I Wish’ I Picked Someone Other Than Jeff Sessions)
The president also tweeted that Sessions’s recusal of himself in the Russia investigation was “‘an unforced betrayal of the President of the United States.'”
