LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

NBC News reports:

The White House will hold a press briefing Wednesday afternoon with press secretary Sarah Sanders. The briefing is scheduled to start at 1:15PM. President Donald Trump called Wednesday for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to put an end to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, a day after Trump’s former campaign chairman went on trial.

Taking to Twitter to complain about the ongoing Russia investigation, Trump said Sessions “should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further.” Seeking to distance himself from his ex-campaign chairman, Trump said, “He worked for me for a very short time.”
