Friendly fire in the Trump Administration as president berates AG

Hosted by

America's top law enforcement officer is in danger of losing his job. After two days of caustic presidential tweets about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, press secretary Sara Huckabee Sanders was asked about his standing at today's White House briefing. She acknowledged the president's disappointment in Sessions, but told reporters, "I think that's a decision that, if the president wants to make, he certainly will. That frustration certainly hasn't gone away and, you know, I don't think it will." Matt Zapotosky, who covers the Justice Department for the Washington Post's National Security Team, says the president's anger – not just with Sessions, but with the Justice Department as a whole -- has been simmering for months.
