Sen. Chuck Grassley issued a warning to the White House Wednesday to tread carefully when it comes to Attorney General Jeff Sessions because the Senate Judiciary Committee won’t take up the nomination of a potential successor until 2018.
"Everybody in D.C. [should be] warned that the agenda for the Judiciary Committee is set for rest of 2017. Judges first subcabinet 2nd / AG no way," Grassley tweeted Wednesday.
Grassley, who’s chairman of the committee, served with Sessions on the panel.
The tweet comes after the president has been publicly hammering Sessions for days, calling him “beleaguered” and “weak” when it comes to going after Hillary Clinton’s crimes and intelligence leakers, and criticizing him for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Trump said he wants the attorney general to be “much tougher.”
