SHOW TRANSCRIPT

President Donald Trump attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Twitter — again. 

This time, it was over the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump tweeted Wednesday, "If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren't they the subject of the investigation?"

And he told his followers to "ask Jeff Sessions" why a probe isn't underway.

Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation in March 2017. And Trump wasn't pleased. He called the decision "very unfair to the president."

Trump's lashed out at Sessions several times since then. He criticized the attorney general's "VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes." He also described him as "beleaguered" in a tweet that asked why he wasn't looking into "Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations."

The Department of Justice declined CNN's request for a comment Wednesday.
