Trump Blames Sessions For Arrests Of GOP Reps

The Guardian reports:

Donald Trump on Sunday mounted another extraordinary attack on his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, blaming him for charges against two congressmen he said jeopardised Republican chances in the forthcoming midterm elections.

Last month Duncan Hunter, a California representative, was charged with the misuse of campaign funds while Chris Collins of New York was indicted for insider trading. Both are Trump supporters.

Sessions was also an early supporter of Trump but the president has attacked him repeatedly for his decision in March 2017 to recuse himself from oversight of the investigation into Russian election interference and links between Trump aides and Moscow.
