    US President Donald Trump has been attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions for two days in a row, lashing out at him in a new wave of criticism.

    "Jeff Sessions said he wouldn't allow politics to influence him only because he doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position. Highly conflicted Bob Mueller and his gang of 17 Angry Dems are having a field day as real corruption goes untouched. No Collusion!" Trump said in a tweet.

    ​Trump earlier tweeted that he wants Sessions to "look into all of the corruption on the other side," emphasizing, "Come on Jeff, you can do it, the country is waiting!"

    A conflict between the US president and the Attorney General started after the arrest of a 26-year-old former Air Force linguist, who became the first person charged with criminal information leaks under President Donald Trump.
