President Donald Trump continued his recent public shaming of Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday, lashing out at his very weak position on prosecuting Hillary Clinton’s crimes.

“Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – ‘quietly working to boost Clinton.’ So where is the investigation A.G. @seanhannity,”, the President tweeted just after 6 a.m. ET, followed by another tweet moments later criticizing Sessions’ weak de position.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has obtained an extremely weak position on Hillary Clinton offenses (in which will be E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers! He tweeted.

A Justice Department spokesperson declined to comment on Trump’s tweets Tuesday morning.

Trump has just decried what he states is a double standard between the scrutiny along with his associates’ interaction with Russian officers along with the investigation into Clinton’s use of a personal email while secretary of state. On the weekend, he asked on Twitter why Sessions and Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller were not exploring the more than 30,000 deleted emails from the server.

Tuesday’s tweets also come after the President described Sessions as beleaguered as he tweeted about his frustration with the Russia probe. After 1 year of investigation using Zero signs being discovered, Chuck Schumer simply said that: “Democrats must blame ourselves, not Russia, the President tweeted Monday, later adding, “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”

Trump did not clarify why Sessions, a longtime and loyal supporter of his 2016 effort, is beleaguered. However, the President’s own, recent comments have increased strain on his attorney general, whom he publicly criticized last week for recusing himself against the Russia investigation as a result of undisclosed contacts he had with Russian officials during the campaign.

“Sessions”, Trump told The New York Times in an interview last week, “should have never recused himself and when he had been going to recuse himself he ought to have told me before he took the job and I’d have picked somebody else”.

Trump’s remarks immediately raised speculation that Sessions might resign, however, a source familiar with the attorney general’s thinking stated last week that Sessions has no intention of stepping down in the wake of Trump’s comments.

However, the President’s remarks caused profound alarm inside the West Wing, causing some to worry that their devotion to Trump might not be reciprocated in the man from the Oval Office.

It’s chilling, one White House official told CNN last week, speaking to Trump’s remarks into the Times.
