The White House has a new suggestion for Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Consider going after James Comey. 

Press chief Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president doesn't have the authority to order such an investigation but strongly suggested it would be a good idea. “I think if there's ever a moment where we feel someone's broken the law, particularly if they're the head of the FBI, I think that's something that certainly should be looked at,” Sanders said Tuesday, per the Washington Post

But she added that it's "not the president's role" to recommend such an investigation. As for the laws Comey is alleged to have broken, Sanders said Comey "leaked privileged government information" to the New York Times, though the Post notes the memo she's referring to wasn't classified.
