President Donald Trump took a shot at Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a Wednesday tweet citing analysis from Congressman Trey Gowdy.

Trump has long been incensed with Sessions with recusing himself from the Russia investigation and allowing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The president has targeted Sessions publicly for not investigating his former opponent Hillary Clinton and not taking control of the investigation.
