"Trump has never forgiven Sessions for his recusal, which he regarded as an act of disloyalty that denied him the protection he thought he deserved from his attorney general. “I don’t have an attorney general,” he said in September."

"Trump repeatedly called on Sessions to end the Russia probe on Twitter and TV interviews.  '..This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!' Trump tweeted on Aug. 1."

"Whitaker also will oversee special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation" which was previously managed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

After strong criticism on both sides for siding with Russia over our own intelligence, Trump later clarified at a subsequent press conference:

The sentence should have been “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,” sort of a double negative. So you can put that in and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself. I have on numerous occasions noted our intelligence findings that Russians attempted to interfere in our elections.

Trump and Putin met in Helsinki, Finland on July 18, 2018.  Information about what was discussed in this meeting was for the most part not made public.
