President Donald Trump blasted his attorney general once again, this time for the investigations of two GOP lawmakers that could prove detrimental to the party’s likes of retaining its majority in November.
The President’s tweet in which he attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions followed several other ones that commented on a key labor leader’s poor performance and the possible presidential bid by former Secretary of State John Kerry.
“Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department,” Trump wrote, referring to the probes of his supporters Representatives Chris Collins and Duncan Hunter. “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff.”
The President then compared the attorney general to former FBI Director, “Lyin’ James Comey.”
“….The Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now. Same thing with Lyin’ James Comey. The Dems all hated him, wanted him out, thought he was disgusting – UNTIL I FIRED HIM! Immediately he became a wonderful man, a saint like figure in fact. Really sick!”
The feud between Trump and Sessions has been going on for a year, during which the President has repeatedly criticized his attorney general, mostly for his decision to recuse himself from the 2016 Russia investigation, as well as for what Trump says is Sessions’ failure to take control of the Justice Department.
Last month, Trump’s attacks on Sessions seemed to escalate and he recently indicated in an interview that Sessions’ fate after the November midterms was uncertain.
The two lawmakers Trump referred to in his tweet, Collins and Hunter, have respectively been accused of fraud and lying to the FBI and misusing campaign funds.
