Trump made the comment in an interview with Bloomberg News. "It's about the investigation, and I think the Mueller investigation ought to go on unimpeded". Jim Inhofe is pretty sure it's Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn't straighten out properly ..."
"I view it differently", Bloomberg quoted Trump as saying.
"Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicised charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department", Trump tweeted.
The president resumed his attacks on Session via Twitter last week, saying the attorney general had never fully exerted control over the Justice Department.
Sessions infuriated Trump by recusing himself from the investigation into alleged Trump-Russia ties a year ago which prompted Robert Mueller's appointment as special counsel leading the inquiry.
The president declined to comment on whether Sessions' job is safe through the midterm election on November 6, telling Bloomberg: "I'd love to have him look at the other side", underscoring his demand for Sessions to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton and the origins of the Russian Federation investigation.
Trump's 36 percent job approval is a slight tick downward from April, when the outlets last measured Americans' views of Trump and found him at 40 percent.
Trump has reportedly been discussing firing Sessions for months, airing his frustration with Republican members of the House and Senate, according to CNN.
