Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time.

"A grand jury usually will work on a lot of matters, and even if this grand jury started in September 2016, it might have been working on other things until the last several months", said Andrew Leipold, a law professor at University of Illinois College of Law.

Jeff Flake says Trump's criticism of the agency for jeopardizing the two lawmakers' seats exceeds what previous presidents have said. Duncan Hunter of California and Chris Collins of NY.

President Donald Trump has called Attorney General Jeff Sessions "mentally retarded" and a "dumb Southerner", striking a far more shocking and profane tone in private than his public attacks, according to a new book from legendary journalist Bob Woodward.

That said, the first news reports that Hunter was under criminal investigation appear to have surfaced in March 2017, during Trump's presidency.

Using the authority & prestige of the presidency to suborn politicization of investigations & prosecutions involving your allies? Over the next two trading days, between the opening of the market on Friday, June 23, and the close of the market on Monday, June 26, and while the clinical trial results were still nonpublic, Cameron Collins sold a total of almost 1.4 million Innate shares based on material, nonpublic information he received from Christopher Collins.

Collins was charged with 13 counts of securities fraud, wire fraud and making false statements related to an alleged insider trading scheme. Duncan Hunter of Alpine, who was charged last month with spending campaign funds on personal expenses and falsifying federal reports on his political finances, and Chris Collins of NY, who two weeks earlier was accused of insider trading and lying to the FBI.

A spokeswoman for Mr Sessions declined to comment, and the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Here, we're interested in whether the recent indictments stem from investigations that began under Obama, as Trump claimed.

The indictment against the Hunters was filed by Braverman, who, again, was appointed by Sessions.

Trump continued, arguing that Democrats must be very happy with his attorney general.

President Donald Trump gestured while speaking at the Harris Conference Center, Aug. 31, in Charlotte, N.C. Trump escalated his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, suggesting the embattled official should have intervened in investigations of two GOP congressmen to help Republicans in the midterms.

He said the DOJ would have been "most unwise" to wait until after the midterms to issue these indictments.
