‘Come on Jeff, you can do it’: Trump urges Sessions to go after Hillary Clinton and others

President Trump on Friday morning posted a series of tweets after his attorney general Jeff Sessions fired back at him over criticism.

“’Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.’ Jeff, this is GREAT, what everyone wants, so look into all of the corruption on the “other side” including deleted Emails, Comey lies & leaks, Mueller conflicts, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, FISA abuse, Christopher Steele & his phony and corrupt Dossier, the Clinton Foundation, illegal surveillance of Trump Campaign, Russian collusion by Dems – and so much more," Trump wrote on Twitter.

“Open up the papers & documents without redaction?” Trump continued. “Come on Jeff, you can do it, the country is waiting!”

And in another tweet, Trump wrote: "Ex-NSA contractor to spend 63 months in jail over “classified” information. Gee, this is ‘small potatoes’ compared to what Hillary Clinton did! So unfair Jeff, Double Standard."

Sessions had issued a statement on Thursday after Trump slammed him in a Fox News interview.

“While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations,” Sessions stated. “I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action. However, no nation has a more talented, more dedicated group of law enforcement investigators and prosecutors than the United States.”

In the interview with ‘Fox & Friends’ that aired on Thursday morning, Trump expressed his displeasure at Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

“Jeff Sessions recused himself, which he shouldn’t have done or he should have told me,” Trump said. “He took the job and then said, ’I’m going to recuse myself.’ I said, ‘what kind of a man is this?’ He was on the campaign. He knows there was no collusion.”
