BREAKING: Jeff Sessions Has Offered To Resign As Attorney General

The Trump administration is literally crumbling under the weight of the Russia scandal. In an extraordinary turn of events, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has offered to resign as his relationship with President Donald Trump has grown increasingly tense, ABC News reported Tuesday evening.

Citing two unnamed sources, ABC News reports that Trump “repeatedly lashed out” at Sessions over the attorney general’s decision in March to recuse himself from the investigation into possible collusion between members of Trump’s campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

Trump considered Session’s recusal “one of the top disappointments of his presidency so far” and fumed at Sessions over his decision led to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the investigation, according to the New York Times.

In March, just hours before Sessions announced his recusal, Trump told reporters he had “total” confidence in Sessions.

During his daily briefing on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to say whether Trump still has confidence in Sessions.

“I have not had a discussion with him about that,” Spicer said. “If I have not had a discussion with him, I tend not to comment on it.”

Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment to ABC News about whether Sessions raised the possibility of resigning.
