(Newser) – President Trump has had plenty to say on Twitter about Attorney General Jeff Sessions; on Wednesday, he had something to say to him. "..This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!" he tweeted. Here's how the comment has been covered:

  • The New York Times calls the request that Sessions end the special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller "an extraordinary appeal" and a "blunt direction."
  • The Hill characterizes the tweet as "a significant escalation of his attacks against the long-running probe."
