Donald Trump has amplified his attacks on his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. The US President denounces that the Justice Department has put Republicans at risk for the mid-term elections, following recent charges against two US officials.
The President wrote on Twitter that “investigations of two very popular congressional officials led to high-profile accusations by Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department just before the mid-term elections.”
The head of state added that “two easy seats” were now at stake “due to lack of time.”
Mr. Trump concluded by saying, ironically, “Good job, Jeff.”
Two of the first Republican elected to support Donald Trump in the White House race face separate charges.
Representative Duncan Hunter of California charged with spending $ 250,000 on personal campaign funds while New York’s Chris Collins is charged with insider trading .
Mr. Collins has already thrown in the towel and will not run again in the next election.
Mr. Trump did not speak about the accusations themselves, he only addressed the political fallout of these, a few weeks of crucial elections.
A crumbling support
It has been several months since the president has been lashing out more and more with his secretary of justice.
From the beginning of the Trump administration, Jeff Sessions had been angered by the president by recusing himself of the investigation into Russian interference, a gesture that Mr. Trump has obviously never forgiven him.
In an interview with Bloomberg last week, the oval office tenant revealed that Sessions was only guaranteed his job until the mid-term elections on November 6, when Democrats attempt to regain control of at least one of the two houses of Congress.
