Trump attacks Sessions over charges

Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of NY for alleged misuse of campaign funds and alleged insider trader, respectively.

Collins' indictment on insider trading charges also stemmed from a call he made to his son in June 2017 - during a congressional picnic at the White House, five months after the president took office.

Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty in their cases.

Trump has previously pressed Sessions to investigate his perceived enemies and has accused Sessions of failing to take control of the Justice Department.

Trump's attacks on Sessions, and his efforts to force his attorney general to quit his post after Sessions recused himself from the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, are part of an obstruction investigation into the president by special counsel Robert Mueller and his team.

The tweet marked Trump's latest attack on the Justice Department, which has a long history of carrying out investigations and pursuing indictments in a nonpartisan fashion.

"Public perceptions are important", Baker said.

All of that happened because the President of the United States said a local police force had "acted stupidly" in arresting a guy trying to get into his own house.

Trump replied, "I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department".

The White House had no comment on Trump's tweets, but said he chose to not leave the White House and focus on trade calls.

The tweet was just another attempt by the president into shaming his attorney general into resigning. However, early on October, Papadopoulos pleaded guilty of having lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the Russia contacts he had and that he had been workinh hand to hand with Robert Mueller, who was a Special Counsel probe during the Russian meddling meeting which was held in 2016 which collided with the USA election and most probably colluded with Trump's campaign. American intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow interfered to help Trump win.

In this July 13, 2018 photo, Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivers remarks in Portland, Maine. Trump has also repeatedly complained publicly and privately over Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation because he'd worked on Trump's campaign.

Trump continued, arguing that Democrats must be very happy with his attorney general.

Mr Trump then compared the Attorney General with "Lyin' James Comey", claiming the Democrats must love Mr Sessions now.

A spokeswoman for Sessions declined to comment, and the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "So what I am suggesting is that Jeff Sessions and the President do not have a healthy relationship". "In his world they swore an oath to him, not (the) constitution and laws", Schatz wrote on Twitter.
