Trump slams Attorney General Sessions, FBI in latest tweets

[WASHINGTON] US President Donald Trump on Wednesday struck out at Jeff Sessions in a fresh round of tweets, criticising the US attorney general for keeping the acting FBI director and renewing accusations about past investigations of his former presidential rival, Hillary Clinton.

"Why didn't A G Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got ... big dollars (S$700,000) for his wife's political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives.

Drain the Swamp!" Mr Trump wrote in a pair of tweets referring to former FBI Director James Comey, whom he later fired.

Mr McCabe's wife ran for a seat in Virginia's state senate and received campaign donation funds from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally.
