In one of his first moves as chief of staff to the President, John Kelly made a phone and gave the Attorney General Jeff Sessions some news he had been hoping for…
Both the Associated Press and ABC News are reporting that on Wednesday John Kelly called Mr. Sessions to inform him that he is not at risk of losing his job. The Associated Press states:
Kelly called Sessions on Saturday to stress that the White House was supportive of his work and wanted him to continue his job, according to two people familiar with the call. The people demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about a private conversation. Kelly, who was appointed to the post the day before, described the president as still miffed at Sessions but did not plan to fire him or hope he would resign.
Trump has seethed at Sessions, his one-time close ally, since the attorney general recused himself from the probe into Russia’s meddling into the 2016 election. The president viewed that decision as disloyal — the most grievous sin in Trump’s orbit.
Recently the Attorney General has been the victim of angry tweets from the President but, it appears that the relationship may be on the mend.
