“AG Jeff Sessions has a good ring to it,” Graham wrote on Twitter. “Highly qualified, committed to the rule of law, tough on crime, and fiercely independent.”

“DHS Secretary Jeff Sessions doesn’t sound right, doesn’t feel right,” he continued. “Bad idea.”

Included in his tweets was a link to the Politico report saying that Sessions is among those being discussed by department staffers as a possible replacement for Kelly, whom Trump named White House chief of staff on Friday.

Sessions’s future at the Justice Department has been the subject of speculation in recent days after Trump launched a series of public attacks at the attorney general.

Trump has complained recently about Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the law enforcement investigation into Russian election meddling, and, at one point, called him “beleaguered” in a tweet.

Sessions has said he has no plans of resigning from the Justice Department and that he is willing to serve as long as the president wants him to.

The mere thought of Trump firing Sessions has drawn ire from conservatives in Congress, including Graham, who said on Thursday that “there will be holy hell to pay” if Trump ousts his attorney general.
