President Donald Trump is blaming his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for allowing the Russia investigation to continue.

Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that he would have "picked someone else" for the top job at the Justice Department had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the probe.

It's the latest salvo from Trump in his bid to discredit the ongoing probe by special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller is investigating Russia's attempts to sway voters in the 2016 election and whether Trump associates provided any help. He's also investigating whether Trump obstructed justice by taking steps to shut down the probe

Trump wrote: “The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn't tell me he was going to recuse himself...I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined...and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”
