Jeff Sessions' job as Attorney General might still be on the chopping block, per The Washington Post.

President Donald Trump recently sat down with Matthew G. Whitaker, the attorney general's chief of staff, about replacing Sessions as AG. Trump has slammed Sessions for months, and has long questioned Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation now being run by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Recently, the president criticized the Department of Justice for indicting two GOP lawmakers so close to the midterm elections.

"We'll see what happens," Trump said in late September. "A lot of people have asked me to do that. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did.

"And my worst enemies, I mean, people that, you know, are on the other side of me, in a lot of ways including politically, have said that was a very unfair thing he did."

Sessions has refrained from criticizing Trump.
