But in March, it was revealed that he met twice with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2016. Trump said, "Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else." He described Sessions' actions "extremely unfair."

After Sessions, Trump put his gun of criticisms over Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, for carrying a critical Conflict Of Interests. According to Trump, Rosenstein recommended him to fire FBI director, James Comey and appointed Robert Muller as the new special counsel on Russian investigations but now, Trump considered whether Comey firing was illegal obstruction of Justice. Trump said it is a conflict of interests, according to the Guardian.

Trump also attacked the current head of FBI, Andrew McCabe and said his wife had received donations from the Democratic Fund.
