President Donald Trump needs to "cut it out" with the attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former federal judge Ken Starr wrote in an op-ed Wednesday in The Washington Post.

"Tweet to your heart's content, but stop the wildly inappropriate attacks on the attorney general," said Starr, best known for carrying out a controversial investigation into former President Bill Clinton. "An honorable man whom I have known since his days as a U.S. attorney in Alabama, Jeff Sessions has recently become your piñata in one of the most outrageous — and profoundly misguided — courses of presidential conduct I have witnessed in five decades in and around the nation's capital."

Trump last week slammed Sessions for recusing himself from the Justice Department's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, telling The New York Times he never would have appointed him had he known he would do that. The president took another swipe at the attorney general Monday morning, calling him "our beleaguered A.G." in a tweet.

Starr joined many in slamming Trump for his criticism of Sessions, including top aides who have tried to talk the president down from his public rebuke of the attorney general.
