President Donald Trump slamming Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not prosecuting Hillary Clinton, whom he defeated for the presidency, is an "impeachable offense," according to Richard Painter, who was chief ethics lawyer under President George W. Bush.

The lawyer, now a law professor at University of Minnesota Twin Cities, made the comments Tuesday in a number of tweets:

The former ethics lawyer was referring to Tuesday tweets in which Trump blasted Sessions, saying Sessions "has taken a very weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes."

Clinton should sue Trump over the tweets, according to the lawyer. "Do America a favor," Painter said in a Tuesday tweet.
