President Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg News on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions' job is safe until after the midterm elections - but declined to say whether Sessions would remain beyond November.
Asked in the Bloomberg News interview whether he would comply if Mueller issued a subpoena for him to appear for questioning, Trump said, "I'll see what happens".
Trump on Monday blasted Sessions and lamented the indictments of Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins who were his earliest supporters in the Congress during the 2016 election, suggesting they should not have been charged because they are Republicans, the CNN reported.

At a rally in IN on Thursday night, Trump turned up the rhetoric, threatening to "get involved" in the work of the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation unless the agencies "start doing their job".

"I'd love to have him look at the other side", Trump said. "I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly ..."
