President Donald Trump continued taking shots at Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday, calling him "beleaguered" and saying Sessions should be investigating his former political rival, Hillary Clinton.

Trump wrote on his @realonaldtrump account: "So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?"

In a separate morning tweet, Trump took aim at the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is conducting a probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
