Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was involved in the Trump campaign and had been reprimanded for failing to report contacts with Russian officials. On the advice of Justice Department ethics officials, he recused himself from Russian investigation, saying it wasn’t a close call. Trump pressured him not to recuse, and later to “un-recuse”, and eventually let him go.
