Flake says Senate does not want Trump to fire Sessions

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said on Sunday that the Senate, as a body, does not want President Trump to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“There may be a few isolated voices saying that the president ought to fire him now, I can tell you as a body we’re saying, ‘Please don’t,’ ” he told Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“He serves at the pleasure of the president, we all know that, but I think it would be a big mistake for the president to fire him now.”

The comments came after Todd played two clips of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) giving interviews. In the first, from last year, Graham said there will be “holy hell to pay” if Sessions is fired. But in a second interview, he said last week that “the president is entitled to an attorney general he has faith in.”
