This is the best tweet by President Trump I have seen in a long time!
“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”

He finally did it, because he has had enough just like we have.
From the look on Jeff Sessions’ face, he does not look too happy. However, it is high time he did his job for a change. All he seems to do is to recuse himself.
Last week, Trump told reporters he would not have appointed Sessions, a foreign policy adviser to his campaign, to lead the Justice Department if he had known he would recuse himself from the investigation into Trump’s alleged ties with Russia. Can you blame President Trump? I can’t!
“After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that ‘Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia,” Trump wrote Monday morning.
It is so good to see President Trump speaking out about this. I think he has been very patient, but in my opinion the time has come to start investigating Hillary Clinton and her dealings with Russia. This is a marked, and welcome, change from Trump’s previous position on investigating Clinton.
“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Trump himself told The New York Times on Nov. 22, 2016. “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways, and I am not looking to hurt them at all. The campaign was vicious.”
At the top of any Clinton/Russia investigation should be the pay-for-play arrangement in the Obama State Department. Then Secretary of State Clinton approved a large deal for Russian companies to buy U.S. uranium, after two connected companies made massive donations to the Clinton Foundation. There is so much to investigate Clinton on, it will probably overwhelm Sessions; nevertheless, it is his job.
Investigators and even partisan Democrats admit they have no evidence Trump himself engaged in any wrongdoing.
The HILL reports the following:
In the same series of tweets, the president also brought up former FBI director James Comey, who Trump fired earlier this year. Trump has suggested Comey has suspicious allegiances.
He also claimed his son Donald Trump Jr. was more transparent than Clinton by releasing a chain of emails that led to Trump Jr.’s private meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have damaging information on the Democratic presidential nominee.
As secretary of state, Clinton used a private email server and subsequently many official emails were deleted. Trump has previously suggested Russia might have the missing emails.
“So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Council looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes,” he wrote on Twitter.
The special counsel, Robert Mueller, was appointed by the Justice Department to lead the federal probe into Russian interference. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation – something Trump recently called “unfair.”
During an appearance on Fox News, the No. 2 Justice Department official was asked whether it would “ever be proper for a FBI director” to leak notes about conversations with the president.
“As a general proposition, you have to understand the Department of Justice. We take confidentiality seriously, so when we have memoranda about our ongoing matters, we have an obligation to keep that confidential,” Rosenstein said during the interview for Fox’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” which was taped Tuesday but aired on Wednesday. “As a general position, I think it is quite clear. It’s what we were taught, all of us as prosecutors and agents.”
Comey has acknowledged giving memos of his conversations with Trump to a law professor friend with instructions to share them with the media. Comey was a former FBI director, not a current employee at the time, having been fired by Trump on May 9. However, FBI policy appears to bar former employees from releasing confidential bureau records.
