President Donald Trump lashed out at his attorney general and Justice Department in an extraordinary outburst on Twitter Tuesday morning, continuing his public shaming of Jeff Sessions while appearing to prod the nation's top law enforcement official to investigate Hillary Clinton, his 2016 election opponent. The President -- who has recently decried what he says is a double standard between the scrutiny over his associates' interaction with Russian officials and the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state -- railed against Sessions' "very weak position" on prosecuting Clinton's "crimes." He also suggested that the acting head of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, was compromised and politically biased against him. "Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign - 'quietly working to boost Clinton.' So where is the investigation A.G. @seanhannity," the President tweeted just after 6 a.m. ET, followed by a second tweet minutes later criticizing Sessions. "Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!" he wrote.
Nicholas Johnston, Editor of Axios.com, joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss President Trump's treatment of AG Sessions as well as explore the possibilities of his future, whether President Trump fires him or he decides to resign. Calling on an Axios.com piece written by Mike Allen, Johnston mentioned that Trump often calls on friends for opinions, recently asking several what he should do about his Attorney General. Johnston also posed a question looking at this situation from another angle, asking "How is Sessions taking it? Is he going to quit or force the President to fire him?"
