Trump in renewed attack on Jeff Sessions over charges for Republican congressmen

Donald Trump let loose on his attorney general for charges the Department of Justice brought against two sitting Republican members in recent days complaining that the indictments handicapped the incumbents and jeopardized the GOP's standing in the Hous

Trump acknowledged that he was stuck with Sessions just days ago in an interview in which he committed to keeping his attorney general right where he is until the November elections.

Trump wrote on Twitter the Justice Department's decision to file charges will hurt safe Republican seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Donald Trump on Sunday mounted another extraordinary attack on his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, blaming him for charges against two congressmen he said jeopardised Republican chances in the forthcoming midterm elections. The two were the first members of Congress to endorse Trump after he announced his bid for president in 2015, at a time when few others did.

He said: "I didn't see it as a foul". "We still have a lot of work to do breaking away, it was very impressive". We believe if we turn up we can beat anyone - especially at Celtic Park.

Rep. Duncan Hunter of California was indicted and accused of fraud and stealing campaign funds for personal use, and Rep. Chris Collins of NY was indicted and accused of insider trading.

AshLee Strong, a spokesperson for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, responded to Trump's tweet by saying the Justice Department "should always remain apolitical, and the speaker has demonstrated he takes these charges seriously".

The president was referring to Reps. Both are creating problems for the GOP, given how hard it would be to replace the already-renominated incumbents on the ballots, and in Trump's estimation, Sessions should have prevented that. Trump did not have any public events Monday.

The president has repeatedly attacked Sessions for recusing himself from an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election campaign. "Really sick!" the commander-in-chief ranted in a second tweet. Trump also defended his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and insisted he was unfairly treated, even after Manafort was found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes.

He went on to say that "the Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now", before going on to make the ultimate insult in Trump speak - a comparison to former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Mr Trump suggested Mr Sessions could lose his job in July a year ago when he said "time will tell" what happens to him. Immediately he became a wonderful man, a saint like figure in fact.

McCain Salute: One Of Nation’s ‘Bravest Souls’ In War, Peace
Friends, family and former presidents will gather at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday to honor the life of the late Sen. The Saturday gathering comes after thousands of people paid respects to McCain on Friday at the U.S.

The tweet also amounts to Trump's latest broadside against his attorney general, whose recusal from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign Trump has refused to forgive and continued to fume about.
