Escalating public feud with Sessions, Trump pushes AG to investigate Democrats [View all]

Source: NBC News

President Donald Trump slapped back at Jeff Sessions early Friday — the latest attack in an ongoing exchange of barbs between the two men — daring his attorney general to investigate Democrats and intelligence officials.

In a pair of tweets, Trump quoted a line Sessions himself used a day earlier in responding to an earlier criticism from his boss, before demanding the nation's top law enforcement official “look into all of the corruption on the ‘other side.'”

“Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations," Sessions said in a statement Thursday, in an unusual push back to Trump.

Trump, quoting that sentence, goes on to tweet, "Jeff, this is GREAT, what everyone wants, so look into all of the corruption on the ‘other side’ including deleted Emails, Comey lies & leaks, Mueller conflicts, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr..........FISA abuse, Christopher Steele & his phony and corrupt Dossier, the Clinton Foundation, illegal surveillance of Trump Campaign, Russian collusion by Dems - and so much more.”
