Attorney General Jeff Sessions reportedly clashed with President Trump to the point of offering his resignation.
According to a new report, Sessions said he was ‘more than willing to resign’ following his recusal from the Trump campaign/Russia investigation.
ABC News broke the story: Trump’s anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. Two sources close to the president say he has lashed out repeatedly at the attorney general in private meetings, blaming the recusal for the expansion of the Russia investigation, now overseen by Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.
But sources say the frustration runs both ways, prompting the resignation offer from Sessions.

In his Attorney General confirmation hearings, Sessions said that he did not have contact with Russian officials during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign. In March 2017, news reports revealed that Sessions had twice met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2016. Sessions subsequently recused himself from any investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election while some Democratic lawmakers called for his resignation.
