We love this job, we love this department and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate. I'm totally confident we can continue to run this office in an effective way.
Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said Thursday he has no immediate plans to resign as the nation's top lawman despite President Trump's sharp criticism of him for recusing himself from the investigation into Russia's interference into the 2016 presidential election.
Trump said in an interview Wednesday that he never would have chosen Sessions to head the Justice Department if he had known Sessions would remove himself from the high-stakes probe, a decision that ultimately led to appointment of a special counsel.
Sessions told reporters at a news conference that he still shares Trump's priorities to crack down on crime, and said he is focused on leading the department.
