The city of San Francisco filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsU.S. seizes ring of Chinese criminal pot-growing houses Sessions credits Trump with stopping migrant caravan GAO report: Schools punish black students more severely MORE on Thursday after he repealed civil rights memos created to protect minorities and the disabled. "So much of the media is dishonest and corrupt!"

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt testifies before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, in Washington, D.C., on December 7, 2017.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday ordered a zero-tolerance policy for immigrants illegally crossing the southwest border, telling USA attorney's offices to prioritize prosecuting offenders.

Pruitt, who served as attorney general in Oklahoma, has expressed interest in holding that job nationally, Politico reported in January, The New York Times reported last month and The Wall Street Journal reported this week. This position holds special weight for the President, who believes that he and his aides are being unfairly targeted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and wants as many allies as possible in positions of power over both Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller's probe.

Mr. Sessions recused himself last March from the Justice Department's investigation of Russia's interference in the USA presidential election and possible ties to the Trump campaign. "I think he's done a fantastic job".

Earlier this year, Trump on Twitter told his followers to ask Sessions - whose name the president initially misspelled as "Jeff Session" - why Democrats weren't being investigated for "crimes" related to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. But the president has defended him, as he did in the tweet Friday.
