WaPo: Sessions said he'd consider resigning if Trump fired Rosenstein

WaPo: Sessions said he'd consider resigning if Trump fired Rosenstein WaPo: Sessions said he'd consider resigning if Trump fired Rosenstein

Jeff Sessions has recently declared that he may leave his role as Attorney General if US President Donald Trump fires his colleague, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to the Washington Post.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks about the opioid crisis during an appearance in Raleigh, N.C., Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

The Post reported that Sessions called McGahn to glean details of an April 12 meeting that included Trump and Rosenstein, citing a person with knowledge of the call.

A senior administration official told The Post that Sessions is concerned over the way Trump has recently treated Rosenstein, and that he's repeatedly asked White House officials for the president's assessment of the deputy attorney general. Given Trump's very public anger with Sessions for recusing himself in the first place, this might well make Trump more likely to fire Rosenstein, not less.

The phone call came amid a series of attacks on Rosenstein and special counsel Robert Mueller by Trump, following the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on April 9 on the home and office of the President's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Sessions did not mean to raise the possibility of his resignation as a threat, but "rather wanted to convey the untenable position that Rosenstein's firing would put him in", a source told the Post.

Sessions's message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm that Trump would invite should he attempt to remove the deputy attorney general.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined The Post's request for a comment.
