Trump called his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, 'beleaguered' on Twitter


President Trump took a shot at Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday, describing him as "beleaguered" in a tweet about the Russia investigation.

"After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that "Democrats should blame ourselves,not Russia," Trump tweeted.

"So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?" read his follow-up tweet.

Trump disclosed in a New York Times interview on Wednesday that he would not have hired Sessions if he had known that Sessions would recuse himself from the Russia probe.

"Should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else," Trump said.

The president's comments prompted speculation that Sessions would resign from his post.

However, a day after the interview was published, Sessions said he plans on continuing in the role.

"Iā€™m totally confident that we can continue to run this office in an effective way," Sessions said.
