Scaramucci's revelation that he had spoken with the president about pardons didn't quite meld with the message from Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, who told ABC News's George Stephanopolous on Sunday that "pardons have not been discussed and pardons are not on the table".

The Intelligence committees are leading the Congressional investigations into the Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election and the possible collusion by members of Trump's campaign.

"Forty-eight percent of voters say it would be inappropriate for President Trump to fire Robert Mueller", said Morning Consult Co-founder and Chief Research Officer Kyle Dropp. Trump Jr. later released email exchanges concerning the meeting on Twitter, after learning that The New York Times was about to publish them.

Trump's recent trolling of Sessions followed previous presidential criticism of Rosenstein, the man left to supervise the Russian Federation investigation after Sessions' recusal over his own potential conflict of interest.
