White House frustrations with the Justice Department over the Russian Federation investigation spilled into public view last week when Trump on Twitter criticized the legal strategy in defending his proposed travel ban.
The next day, facing questions about why he did not disclose those two meetings with Kislyak, Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation because of his role in the Trump campaign.

"I have not met with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign and those remarks are unbelievable to me and are false", he said.
