Feinstein Warns Trump Against Firing Sessions to Stop Probe

"MSNBC Live"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions should not be dismissed from his position, because he has done nothing to deserve being fired, Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., told MSNBC on Tuesday.

Feinstein, who is the ranking member on the Sentate Judiciary Committee, said she disagrees with using Sessions as a "political pawn."

President Donald Trump "can transfer him to homeland security, but if the purpose is what many of us think it is, and that's to stop the investigation of [FBI special counsel] Bob Mueller and his team, that will not work," Feinstein told "MSNBC Live." "Because I believe that will be something that none of us can condone. And it could well be the beginning of the end of the short presidency.”

Feinstein said the probe into Russian meddling into the election has become even more serious with the apparent revelation Trump dictated the misleading statement by his son Donald Jr. about this meeting with the Russian lawyer.

"If that proves to be true that [the president] rewrote a statement to obfuscate the purpose, the real purpose of the meeting, that is a problem," she said.

Feinstein stressed, with all the trouble spots in the world, especially North Korea and Russia, she has "deep concern about our inability to focus on real problems and real problem solving."

She expressed hope Gen. John Kelly, "in addition to being a chief of staff, can be not a co-president, but a man whose advice is valued . . . and be more of a participant in some of the big things."

Feinstein also had praise for Vice President Mike Pence, who has been visiting Estonia and Georgia, for stating the American position clearly and distinctly against Russia, because they practice military intimidation and may be setting up to do so again."
