Trump Rage-Tweets at Jeff Sessions, ‘Crooked Hillary’ and ‘Slippery James Comey’

“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself,” the president says

President Donald Trump attacked a number of rivals on Tuesday, including a tweet directly criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else,” Trump said. “So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”

The tweet echoes Trump’s long-known feeling that it was a mistake for Sessions to wholly extricate himself from the Russia investigation. The latest reporting from The New York Times on the matter suggests that Trump has directly pressured Sessions to reconsider his decision.

President Trump also attacked familiar targets like “Crooked Hillary” and “Slippery James Comey,” who he used to cast doubt on an internal Department of Justice probe into the Comey investigation of the Clinton email scandal.

“What is taking so long with the Inspector General’s Report on Crooked Hillary and Slippery James Comey,” Trump asked. “Numerous delays. Hope Report is not being changed and made weaker! There are so many horrible things to tell, the public has the right to know. Transparency!”

The president also shared some kind words for his congressional allies, many of them California Republicans who are facing primaries on Tuesday, including Rep. Devin Nunes and Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

He also plugged a new book by Fox News host Harris Faulkner.
