Trump escalates attacks on his attorney general

US President Donald Trump launched a fresh attack on Monday (Sep 3) on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying his party could lose two "easy" races in November after the Justice Department filed charges against Republican congressmen.

He's suggesting the Department of Justice put Republicans in jeopardy ahead of midterms with recent indictments of two GOP congressmen. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time.

"Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now". Same thing with Lyin' James Comey. The panelists also noted, however, that Trump's panicky tweets show that he's in a very weak position in which he has no real control over what happens at the DOJ. Immediately he became a wonderful man, a saint like figure in fact.

But after taking a look around - and possibly noting the swamp-like heat and humidity engulfing the capital - he strolled back inside the White House at 10:42.

The Hunter investigation began in June 2016, according to the indictment.

Hunter was charged with using more than $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses, including family vacations, school tuition and theater tickets.

Collins has suspended his reelection campaign, while Hunter is running for reelection, alleging political bias by the Justice Department.

Trump's suggestion that Sessions should have withheld charges against two fellow Republicans for purely political reasons seemed a remarkably unapologetic blurring of a traditional line between presidential authority and the law.

Mr Trump's attack on Mr Sessions was quickly followed by a post in which he mocked the former U.S. secretary of state John Kerry.

He wrote: "I see that John Kerry, the father of the now terminated Iran deal, is thinking of running for president".

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

Trump recently told Bloomberg News that he would keep Sessions as attorney general until after the midterm elections. Trump has also repeatedly complained publicly and privately over Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation because he'd worked on Trump's campaign.
