Trump’s had enough: President demands AG Sessions put an end to Mueller probe

President Donald Trump has had enough and demanded Attorney General Jeff Sessions put an end to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The president tweeted about the “terrible situation” on Wednesday, calling on Sessions to “stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now.”

The tweet slammed the special counsel and “his 17 Angry Democrats” as a “disgrace” to the country.

The president’s comments come as his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is on trial for  bank and tax fraud charges which Trump called out in another tweet as “a Hoax,” saying they have “nothing to do with Collusion.”

The president had also tweeted the evaluation of lawyer Alan Dershowitz that Mueller’s probe has been biased.

Trump’s direct call for Sessions to end the probe is a reality check for the attorney general who has cone under fire for recusing himself from anything involving alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The president has repeatedly complained about Sessions’ decision which effectively handed off oversight to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
