Trump continues tweet rant against AG Sessions
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump is keeping up pressure on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, taking to Twitter at daybreak Tuesday to accuse the former senator and campaign ally and adviser of taking a “VERY WEAK” position at the Justice Department on “Hillary Clinton crimes.”
In a post shortly after 6 a.m. EDT, the president also said: “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – quietly working to boost Clinton. So where is the investigation A.G.” He also tweeted: “Problem is, the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife.”
The social network flares sent out from the White House followed a pattern that intensified earlier this month with Trump’s harsh criticism of Sessions in an interview with The New York Times. Earlier, Trump referred to the attorney general in a tweet as “beleaguered.” Trump has been angry that Sessions chose to recuse himself from the government’s investigation of Russian meddling in last year’s U.S. election.
