Well, this is odd.
According to Kasie Hunt with NBC News, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is on his way to Mar-A-Lago to meet with Donald Trump. Hunt tweeted, “NOTEWORTHY: Source tells me AG Sessions expected to dinner @ Mar-a-Lago tonight. But not on official sked – only Wilbur Ross is. Why?”

Note that this is not an “official” meeting.
This comes right after we learned that Trump is FURIOUS that Sessions recused himself from any Russian investigation pertaining to Trump’s campaign.
From ABC News:
Before heading off to his so-called “winter White House” in Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday, President Donald Trump summoned some of his senior staff to the Oval Office and went “ballistic,” senior White House sources told ABC News.
The president erupted with anger over the latest slew of news reports connecting Russia with the new administration — specifically the abrupt decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.
Sources said the president felt Sessions’ recusal was unnecessary and only served to embolden Trump’s political opponents.
So, the question is…is Sessions being fired? Or are the two just getting their stories straight?
