Trump Again Lashes Out at Sessions

Trump Again Lashes Out at Sessions

Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, on Tuesday.

Trump also called Sessions "mentally retarded" and described him as a "traitor" for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation, the book says, according to The Post.

"This President, by his tweets, has virtually no respect for the rule of law", Durbin said.

Last month Duncan Hunter, a California representative, was charged with the misuse of campaign funds while Chris Collins of NY was indicted for insider trading.

Both lawmakers have pleaded not guilty.

Donald Trump on Sunday mounted another extraordinary attack on his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, blaming him for charges against two congressmen he said jeopardised Republican chances in the forthcoming midterm elections.

In Fear: Trump in the White House, journalist Bob Woodward, according to the New York Times, described Pence as "a glorified golf caddy who doesn't want to rock the boat lest Trump tweet something mean about him". Mark Warner, D-Va., said he was "deeply disappointed that Google - one of the most influential digital platforms in the world - chose not to send its own top corporate leadership to engage this committee". "I think [Trump's] was a comment not created to obstruct justice but in my view, not appropriate". "Made my blood boil". "Really sick!" Trump added in another tweet.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio said the company might have skipped the hearing because it was "arrogant". Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

Trump recently told Bloomberg News that he would keep Sessions as attorney general until after the midterm elections.

Due to his recusal, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is overseeing the special counsel investigation.

"I'm disappointed Google decided against sending the right senior level executive", Sen.

"What we're concerned about is how Twitter has in some ways it looks like selectively, adversely affected conservatives", Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said at the House hearing. "He's entitled to his opinion, and maybe he thinks the policy ought to change. But I just, I won't comment on that". It is not a solicitation to make any exchange in commodities, securities or other financial instruments. Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson said "I resent that", when asked about Trump's mockery of Sessions' southern accent.

Another blow in Trump's long-running feud with Sessions, the president's complaint fits with his pattern of viewing the Department of Justice less as a law enforcement agency and more as one that should do his political bidding.

Trump did not address the charges themselves or name the congressmen, but the tweet was apparently referring to the indictments this summer of Representatives Chris Collins of NY and Duncan D. Hunter of California, the president's two earliest congressional endorsers. "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".
