President Trump stepped up his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, suggesting the Department of Justice put Republicans in midterm jeopardy with recent indictments of two GOP congressmen, the AP reports.
In his latest broadside against the Justice Department’s traditional independence, Trump tweeted that “Obama era investigations, of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department.”
He added: “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff…”
Axios: “This sets up a bigger crisis than we might have imagined if, as expected, he eventually fires Sessions. How do you find a replacement A.G. who is both confirmable and the modern incarnation of Roy Cohn that Trump openly yearns for?”
