President Donald Trump on Wednesday took a shot at U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump quoted Gowdy and added his own epigram: " '.

"There are lots of really good lawyers in the country; he could have picked somebody else", Gowdy said.

Trump has frequently criticized Sessions over his recusal, which paved the way for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Rep. Trey Gowdy told "CBS This Morning" and Fox News there is no evidence of Federal Bureau of Investigation misconduct or that the agency planted a "spy" in Trump's campaign.

The FBI acted properly in its investigation of contacts between President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, according to Gowdy, who recently received a classified briefing about the origins of the FBI probe.

Sessions, one of Trumps biggest boosters during the 2016 campaign, recused himself in March 2017 from any investigations related to the campaign.

President Trump says Deep State officials within the intelligence community were out to sabotage his presidential prospects, spying on him during the campaign.

Giuliani had hoped to be in Trump's Cabinet but not as attorney general, he said.

Sessions recused himself from the investigation into possible Trump campaign cooperation with Russia's election interference, citing Justice Department policy governing potential conflicts of interest given Sessions' role in the Trump campaign. "Even if he commanded him to do it, it wouldn't be obstruction of justice".

Trump has called the investigation into Russian links a "witch-hunt". "I don't know what he was doing", Giuliani said of Gowdy, who led the House investigation into Benghazi.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who golfed over the holiday weekend with the president, says he has reinforced to Trump that "the best thing for the Republican Party right now is to keep focused on good governance in the midterms". The South Carolina congressman responded by distancing himself from Trump.
