According to Bloomberg, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is refusing to recuse himself from a federal investigation into President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen.


The report notes, "Sessions could also weigh in on specific decisions by prosecutors, including whether to pursue subpoenas and indictments," but that he "will consider stepping back from specific questions tied to the probe."

Sessions has previously recused himself from any involvement in the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with the Russians.

Trump has been highly critical of Sessions for stepping aside without informing him prior to the announcement.
