Trump Bashes Jeff Sessions In Middle Of NATO Trip

Trump and Sessions

The president was busy tweeting Thursday morning and challenged his attorney general to act regarding FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s refusal to comply with subpoena and testify before Congress.

Trump called out Jeff Sessions with the first of several tweets:

“As I head out to a very important NATO meeting, I see that FBI Lover/Agent Lisa Page is dodging a Subpoena & is refusing to show up and testify,” Trump tweeted early Thursday morning.

He continued, “What can she possibly say about her statements and lies. So much corruption on the other side. Where is the Attorney General?”

This is just the most recent example of Trump targeting Sessions. The president criticized him for recusing himself from the Russia-collusion investigation and for his “weak position” on former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “crimes.”

“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!” Trump tweeted last month.

Trump let loose his frustration with Session’s lack of action in going after allegations of government surveillance abuse. He called it a “disgraceful” decision to instruct the Department of Justice’s inspector general to probe the allegations.

“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!” Trump tweeted.

Thursday’s comment came in the wake of Lisa Page defying a subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, even as her lawyer claims she “will cooperate with this investigation.”

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte said Wednesday that U.S. Marshals were called in to serve Page with a subpoena to testify and accused her of “apparently” having “something to hide.”

Members of Congress want to question Page regarding her anti-Trump text messages with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she had an affair.
