Trump Trashes Jeff Sessions In Vicious Tweet For Not Investigating Obama, Gets Brutal Response

President Trump on Wednesday fired off a raging tweet attacking his own attorney general for not doing enough to investigate former President Barack Obama.

“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy?” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.

He then trashed Sessions for not directing his own attorneys at the Department of Justice to investigate Obama themselves.

“Why not use Justice Department lawyers?” he asked. “DISGRACEFUL!”

This is not the first time Trump attacks his own attorney general for not doing enough to investigate his political foes. Last week, Trump on Twitter told his followers to ask Sessions why Democrats weren’t being investigated for “crimes” related to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Last summer, he called Sessions “beleaguered” and “weak” because he was not sufficiently investigating former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Trump has also raged against Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The Attorney General stepped aside after it was revealed that he falsely told the Senate during his confirmation hearing that he had never met with any Russian government officials during the campaign.

Twitter users were quick to respond to Trump’s derange tweet. Here are some highlights:
