Trump criticizes A.G. Sessions for charges against Rep. Collins

Trump calls out Sessions over indictments 'Good job Jeff': Trump blames Sessions as GOP lawmakers charged before midterms

The congressmen he referred to in two combative tweets were Reps.

Asked by CNN host John Berman what he made of Trump's comments about the investigations of Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Toobin cut right to the chase.

King is among many prominent people who have been blocked by the president for criticizing him on the social media network.

The Republican president verbally spat on his attorney general in tweets that dripped with disdain.

Collins, a Republican who represents the area between Buffalo and Rochester, was the first member of Congress to endorse Trump's candidacy.

Sessions was also an early supporter of Trump but the president has attacked him repeatedly for his decision in March 2017 to recuse himself from oversight of the investigation into Russian election interference and links between Trump aides and Moscow. But he said that the president's tweet targeting Sessions is different because it "is such an affront to the values of the Justice Department".

Alisson: I'd be arrogant not to learn from Leicester mistake
Manager Juergen Klopp said Alisson's mistake was "not cool" but he was happy that Liverpool still "ticked the box". We need all of the players, that's good. "We try to watch the opponents' game of course".

"The Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now". The Dems all hated him, wanted him out, thought he was disgusting - UNTIL I FIRED HIM!

Trump pointed to the popularity of the two men who faced an easy re-election before being indicted. Trump did not have any public events Monday. "Instead of commenting on ongoing investigations and prosecutions, the job of the President of the United States is to defend the Constitution and protect the impartial administration of justice". "Really sick!" the commander-in-chief ranted in a second tweet. 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.

The president's latest attack on Sessions drew widespread criticism.

In an interview with Bloomberg on Thursday, Trump said Sessions would remain in his job at least until the November midterm elections.

While Trump suggested the investigations into the two lawmakers began during the Obama administration, the charges against Collins stem from actions he allegedly took a year ago - including calls he placed while at the White House for a congressional picnic hosted by Trump.

"I think there will come a time, sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice", Sen.
