US Vice President Praises Sessions

Donald Trump hits out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions in long-running feud

President Donald Trump's latest attack on social media against Attorney General Jeff Sessions is seen by experts and lawmakers as an aberration in American politics and yet another assault on the country's judicial independence. Trump criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions for prosecuting the two GOP lawmakers just before midterm elections, saying, "Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time".

The indictments of Hunter and Collins are for serious, swampy crimes - using campaign funds ($250,000 of them) for personal use and insider trading, respectively.

U.S. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions convened the meeting, set for September 25, "to discuss a growing concern that these companies may be hurting competition and intentionally stifling the free exchange of ideas on their platforms", Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley said.

In a second tweet, Trump said "Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now" before taking a shot at former FBI Director James Comey.

Conservatives say they're proponents of free speech and free markets, and while that doesn't mean they have to like the political biases of the people who run Twitter and Facebook, they should at least respect a private company's right to promote some views over others.

According to Papadopoulos' lawyers, Mr. Trump nodded his head with an approval concerning George's offer thereby defering Mr. Sessions who turned out to like George's idea after this the initiatives where taken and the three said that the campaign would be looked into.

Former Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara called Trump's tweet "next level insane, inappropriate, unethical, stupid, incriminating".

The DOJ said it would meet with other, unspecified state attorneys general.

Then, last week, after Trump made his comments to Bloomberg, he told a raucous crowd in IN that he could "get involved" if his administration's Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation don't start "doing their job and doing it right".

Delaware Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat, on Tuesday afternoon called Trump's tweet on Sessions "unprecedented".

Trump has frequently been said to insult his attorney general.

Allegations against Hunter began in 2016 - when Obama was still president - but the Justice Department began investigating Hunter previous year. After the recusal, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe, which Trump calls a "witch hunt". Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.

Could Trump be guilty of obstruction of justice?

"I think there will come a time, sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice", Sen. "So what I am suggesting is that Jeff Sessions and the President do not have a healthy relationship". Trump did not have any public events Monday. "Instead of commenting on ongoing investigations and prosecutions, the job of the President of the United States is to defend the Constitution and protect the impartial administration of justice".
