“After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that “Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia,” Trump wrote, later adding: “So why aren’t the committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys [sic] crimes & Russia relations?”

Sessions has been a loyal proponent of Trump’s since his 2016 presidential campaign. But by calling him “beleaguered,” Trump added to a number of recent criticisms of Sessions he’s made in in the last week.
In a lengthy, oftentimes bizarre interview with the New York Times published last week, Trump said Sessions “should have never recused himself” from the ongoing probe into whether Trump’s campaign worked with Russia in an effort to sway the election in his favor. Trump added that he would not have picked Sessions to lead the Justice Department if he had known he’d recuse himself from the Russia investigation.
Over the weekend, Trump also slammed an “intelligence leak” about Sessions after the Washington Post reported that the former Alabama senator discussed campaign issues with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during one of their meetings last year.

While the constant barrage of attacks has spread rumors of Sessions’ resigning from the attorney general post, Sessions has said he does not plan to leave.
“We love this job, we love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate,” Sessions said at a news conference where he announced the government’s takedown of several major dark web sites.
