President Trump blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter, saying he has taken a very weak position on, quote: "Hillary Clinton crimes".

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The public criticism is fueling speculation Sessions might be fired.

House Speaker Paul Ryan dodged questions about whether he's concerned about a change at the top of the Justice Department:

(Ryan) "The President gets to decide what his personnel is, you all know that. He's the executive branch, we're the legislative branch."

Senate Judiciary Committee Republican Chair Chuck Grassley says Sessions is qualified to carry out the President's goals at the DOJ.
