Trump Lambasts Jeff Sessions...Again

  • To Celebrate Labor Day, President Trump Insulted a Union Leader

Judge Andrew Napolitano warned President Donald Trump that his latest salvo against Attorney General Jeff Sessions is "perfect fodder for the cannon of Bob Mueller and Never Trumpers".

Trump wrote on Twitter the Justice Department's decision to file charges will hurt safe Republican seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Tuesday on CNN's "New Day", network legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reacted to President Donald Trump's Monday tweet that blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for indicting GOP Congressmen California Rep. Duncan Hunter and New York Rep. Chris Collins just ahead of the midterms, saying the president's tweet "may be an impeachable offense". "Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time", Trump said in his tweet.

Though Trump did not name the congressmen, he seemed to be referring to California Rep. Duncan Hunter and New York Rep. Chris Collins, both of whom are now facing charges.

As you can gather by the points Mr. Conway highlighted, the piece makes note of Republicans who feel troubled by the idea that Trump wants the DOJ to operate by prosecuting political enemies while protecting allies.

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

"The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice - one for the majority party and one for the minority party", he said in a statement.

Over 1 million pieces were used in assembling the 1.5-ton auto , and LEGO said its creators didn't use any glue. From about 20 meters away, he added, it's not obvious that you're looking at a Lego auto .

But he was apparently referring to the first two Republicans to endorse him in the GOP presidential primaries.

Sen Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) tweeted that Trump was "looking to use the Department of Justice to settle political scores". Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia voted for Sessions when he was confirmed as attorney general by a 52-47 vote in February 2017.

Also under investigation is Trump's conduct in dismissing Comey, particularly why he fired him and whether he pressured him to be generous to Michael Flynn, the president's former national security adviser.

While Trump suggested the investigations into the two lawmakers began during the Obama administration, the charges against Collins stem from actions he allegedly took a year ago - including calls he placed while at the White House for a congressional picnic hosted by Trump.

Trump stayed at the White House on Monday, watching television. "Really sick!" Trump tweeted.

Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty in their cases.
