New Trump attack against Attorney General Jeff Sessions

New Trump attack against Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) declared that the USA justice system shouldn't be regarded as one in a "banana republic" after President Trump tweeted against the ongoing prosecution of two Republican congressmen on corruption charges.

Democratic members of Congress are warning that the Justice Department is being targeted by President Donald Trump's tweet politicizing two investigations into GOP House members by the Justice Department, where Attorney General Jeff Sessions remains at the helm.

"Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time", he complained, noting that Democrats must "love" Sessions as the attorney general.

The book says Trump vented to an aide that Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe was "the ultimate betrayal" and called him a "traitor".

Chris Collins of NY was indicted on insider trading charges, which he has denied, while Duncan Hunter of California was accused with his wife of using campaign donations for personal purposes.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) was indicted August 21 on charges of using a quarter of a million dollars in campaign contributions for personal expenses, wire fraud and filing false records with the Federal Election Commission.

But some now see him as a bulwark against attacks on the Justice Department. Some Republican lawmakers - like Senator Lindsey Graham, for instance - have indicated that President Trump could fire and replace Sessions after this fall's midterms.

Journalist John Nichols pointed out that Trump's flagrant attempt to use his authority to favor his own political party in an upcoming election by directing federal prosecutors to ignore two congressmen's allegations of criminal conduct, amounts to the definition of an impeachable offense.

Hunter has not exited his race, while Collins ended his re-election bid days after his indictment.

President Donald Trump, second from left, listens as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, right, speaks during a cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Aug. 16, 2018, in Washington. He briefly exited the White House to a waiting motorcade but then went back inside without going anywhere.

Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told the Times, "I have no reason to believe these prosecutions are politically motivated".

Trump's denunciation of Sessions "crosses a well-established line", said Nancy V. Baker, emeritus professor of government at New Mexico State University and author of Conflicting Loyalties: Law and Politics in the Attorney General's Office. "Really sick!" Trump added in another tweet.
