President Donald Trump is not letting up on Jeff Sessions. On Tuesday morning Trump wrote on Twitter that Jeff Sessions “has taken a very weak position on Hillary Clinton Crimes.” The president tweeted again just after 6 a.m., “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – ‘quietly working to boost Clinton.’ So where is the investigation A.G..” Trump added the Twitter handle for Fox News host Sean Hannity, one of his strongest and most vocal supporters.
The Fox News host has continually pointed out a series of scandals that are related to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and have gone uncovered by the media. Hannity notes the discrepancy as the press devotes so much attention to the ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the election.
Trump’s complaints about the attorney general have increased since the New York Times interview in which he expressed frustration about Jeff Sessions decision to recuse himself from all Justice Department investigations related to last year’s election.Trump told The Times that he would not have nominated Sessions had he known that he would recuse himself.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” the president wrote in another post-Tuesday morning. Trump has continued to complain that now any Clinton investigation would be under the acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Trump said that he might be biased toward Clinton because of his wife, 2015 Virginia state senate candidate Jill McCabe, received political donations from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is a longtime friend of the Clintons.
“Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” Trump wrote on Twitter. This tweet suggested that Clinton made the donation, but it was McAuliffe who had done so.
Do you think that Trump’s continued attack on Jeff Sessions will cause him to resign? Do you think he should resign?
