- Trump: “Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!”
( By Alex Pappas | Fox News ) President Trump on Wednesday again dinged Attorney General Jeff Sessions, this time asking why the Democrats in the Obama administration aren’t being investigated as part of the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
“Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation?” Trump tweeted.
Trump added: “Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!”
Sessions, because of his role on the Trump campaign, recused himself from the special counsel’s Russia probe months ago – a move that angered Trump and has caused him to lash out at his attorney general over and over.
The Sessions recusal, followed by Trump’s firing of James Comey at the FBI, paved the way for the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel.
