Donald Trump Blames Jeff Sessions for Indictment of Two House Republicans

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

Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty in their cases.

Flake has repeatedly criticized Trump for his performance as president and is not seeking re-election this fall.

"Only in -- in North Korea the leader may say you may prosecute this person not this person".

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 went after Sessions in a string of tweets on Monday, accusing him of jeopardizing Republican chances in November's midterm elections with a series of Justice Department investigations. 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. Both are Trump supporters. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of NY, his earliest supporters in Congress, who were indicted last month within two weeks of each other on unrelated charges. Collins and Hunter with felonies. Mueller is now leading the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The conspiracy alleged in his indictment supposedly began in 2017, though he was also under investigation by congressional ethics officials.

The 448-page opus from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, "Fear: Trump in the White House", is slated for public release on September 11.

Baker noted that after Watergate, presidents were "careful to restrict White House communications with anyone at Justice except the attorney general, and even then, keeping records of any communication".

Trump's tweet drew a scolding Monday from Sen.

Some Republicans called Trump's words "appalling" and "not appropriate", The New York Times reports.

"So the justice system is under attack, and I'll be looking forward to statements from this nominee as a court of appeals judge, let alone nominee of the United States Supreme Court", he added shortly before confirmation hearings were set to begin for Kavanaugh. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump granted an interview with the conservative website The Daily Caller, in which he accused the social media sites of anti-conservative bias.

The criticism began in the early months of the administration past year, when Mr Sessions recused himself from investigations into claims that Russian Federation tried to help Mr Trump win the 2016 election.

Some of the issues Trump has raised have already been examined or are being investigated.

Sessions recently pushed back, saying publicly that he will not allow political manipulation of the department.

He tweeted: "This is a awful situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further".
