US President Donald Trump is questioning why those investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion by members of his campaign aren't digging into Hillary Clinton's "crimes & Russia relations".
Trump has now publicly undermined Sessions on multiple occasions, after first telling the New York Times last week that he never would have appointed him as attorney general had he known that Sessions would recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.
Trump had said in an interview with the New York Times last week that he would not have appointed Sessions if he had known the attorney general would recuse himself, as he considers the decision "very unfair to the president".
Trump continues to be angry with Sessions, according to one aide and hasn't yet requested a meeting with his attorney general.
Trump's tweet on Monday appeared shortly after a segment on "Fox & Friends" about a similar topic. Ramps up the rhetoric against Sessions so there can be no debate between reasonable people that Trump wants his attorney general to go do something else.
Trump's advisers have also explained to him - amid his fury about Sessions - that anyone who was part of his campaign, including Giuliani, would likely face pressure to recuse themselves from the Russian Federation investigation, according to Trump advisers and officials.
The president vented to the world in a series of tweets on Monday morning, lashing out not only at Sessions but also at Democrats and the media, whom he has blamed for hyping and continuing the investigations.
Despite the constant criticism from the president, Sessions has not resigned and said on Thursday that he fully intends to keep his job.
"Drain the Swamp should be changed to Drain the Sewer - it's actually much worse than anyone ever thought, and it begins with the Fake News!" he tweeted.
Trump also tweeted that Republicans have their "last chance" on repealing and replacing Obamacare.
