President Trump embarrasses Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter again

President Donald Trump ramped up his public attacks on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday, shaming him for his "very weak position" on the subject of Ukraine efforts to help Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.

"Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign — 'quietly working to boost Clinton.' So where is the investigation A.G. @seanhannity," Trump wrote early Tuesday morning, followed up by another tweet, detailing what he believes are Sessions' downfalls in the matter.

"Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!" he added.

The criticisms from Trump come after he told the New York Times in an interview last week that he never would have hired Sessions as attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself on Russia.

"Sessions 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 told the news outlet.

Though many speculated Sessions would resign following the blasts, Sessions said in a news conference on Thursday that he had no plans to resign as attorney general.

"I have the honor of serving as attorney general. It's something that goes beyond any thought that I would have ever had for myself. We love this job. We love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate," he said.

Trump continued his public shaming of Sessions on Monday, voicing his frustration over the Russia investigation into his campaign taking precedence over any investigation into Clinton's relations with Russia.

"After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that 'Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia,'" the President tweeted Monday. "So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?"

New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci told conservative radio show host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday that it's no secret Trump wants Sessions gone, comparing his relationship with Sessions to that of former President Barack Obama and his former Attorney General Eric Holder.

According to CNN, a Department of Justice spokesperson declined to comment on Trump's tweets Tuesday morning.
