Stephen King Has An Ominous Warning For Donald Trump’s ‘Friends’

Donald Trump on Sunday mounted another extraordinary attack on his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, blaming him for charges against two congressmen he said jeopardised Republican chances in the forthcoming midterm elections. All three pleaded not guilty.

The announcement also signals that the Justice Department is paying attention to the growing movement to challenge Facebook and Google's market power. He said Trump's tweets had demonstrated that he "has virtually no respect for the rule of law".

In a tweet Monday, Trump again attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions while suggesting that the Justice Department consider politics when making decisions.

On Aug. 8, Congressman Christopher Collins, a Republican who was candidate Trump's first supporter in the House, was charged with participating in an insider trading scheme involving an Australian biotechnology company on whose board he served.

The president apparently was referring to the current investigations into GOP Reps.

Though Sessions was one of the earliest backers of his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump is said to still want to fire him as attorney general. Special council Robert Mueller was later on appointed for the investigation by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump is accusing Sessions of putting Republican control of the House of Representatives in jeopardy by announcing those charges just two months before the election.

The investigation that led to the charges against Collins began after Trump took office. "To say the Justice Department ought to punish his enemies and protect his friends goes beyond what any president in my memory has ever said, and that we can't normalize that".

That phone call took place in June 2017 - months after Trump succeeded Obama.

The tweet on Sessions was an unusually harsh salvo, even for a president who sometimes expresses his thoughts on Twitter to the chagrin of his staff. US intelligence agencies have concluded Russian Federation tried to help Trump win the 2016 election, but the Kremlin denies meddling. "Law enforcement officers and prosecutors may never select the timing of investigative steps or criminal charges for the goal of affecting any election, or for the objective of giving an advantage or disadvantage to any candidate or political party", reads a 2016 Justice Department memorandum issued by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, which mirrors language issued by previous attorneys general ahead of federal elections.
