President Trump slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday morning just hours after anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok was fired from the bureau; saying if he had a “real Attorney General” the Mueller probe would never have started.
The Commander-in-Chief called-out Sessions on social media earlier Tuesday, saying “If we had a real Attorney General, this Witch Hunt would never have been started! Looking at the wrong people.”
“They were all in on it, clear Hillary Clinton and FRAME Donald Trump for things he didn’t do.” Gregg Jarrett on @foxandfriends If we had a real Attorney General, this Witch Hunt would never have been started! Looking at the wrong people.

The online assault is the latest incident of the President publicly slamming his Attorney General. Just weeks ago, Trump acknowledged he “wished” he had picked a different person to lead the Department of Justice.
ASYLUM CRACKDOWN: Sessions Moves to ‘BLOCK’ Asylum Seekers from Entering US
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new federal immigration guidelines Monday; cracking down on the level of asylum seekers hoping to enter the United States as a result of “domestic abuse” and “gang violence.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sessions outlined his decision this week; claiming “private crimes” such as family disputes are not “eligible” for asylum under pre-existing guidelines surrounding immigration.
“Generally, claims by aliens pertaining to domestic violence or gang violence perpetrated by non-governmental actors will not qualify for asylum,” Sessions wrote. “The mere fact that a country may have problems effectively policing certain crimes — such as domestic violence or gang violence — or that certain populations are more likely to be victims of crime, cannot itself establish an asylum claim.”
“Asylum was never meant to alleviate all problems — even all serious problems — that people face every day all over the world,” he added.

Mueller's Attorney VISITED CLINTONS on Election Night
A senior attorney on special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team has even more connections to the Clinton campaign than previously thought; attending Hillary’s election night soiree in New York City along with other senior aides, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Andrew Weissmann, described by the New York Times as Mueller’s “pit-bull,” allegedly attended the Clinton Campaign’s supposed victory party last November.
“Mr. Weissmann also attended Hillary Clinton’s election-night party at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, according to people familiar with his attendance,” writes the Journal.
Earlier this week, government watchdog agency Judicial Watch released an email exchange between the attorney and acting Attorney General Sally Yates, praising her decision to rebuke President Trump’s initial travel ban.
“I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” he wrote in late January.
Weissmann’s anti-Trump bias, along with other senior officials scattered throughout the special counsel’s office, raises serious ethical and legal questions over Mueller’s probe into Russia-Trump collusion in the 2016 election.
On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal urged Robert Mueller to step-down from his position, citing a host of conflicts of interest and the recent revelations regarding anti-Trump political bias throughout the investigation.
