President Donald Trump continued his assault on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, issuing a tweet quoting former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova saying Sessions' recusal from the Russia investigation "was an unforced betrayal of the President of the United States."

Trump's tweet late Wednesday came shortly after diGenova's interview earlier that night on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" show.

DiGenova agreed in March to join the president's legal team for the Russia probe, but quickly withdrew citing conflicts.**

Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the case "was an unforced betrayal of the president of the United States who had appointed him," diGenova told Hannity.

"Here's the problem," he continued. "The case that was being turned over to [Special Counsel] Bob Mueller at that time was a counterintelligence investigation. It was not a criminal investigation.

"Therefore Jeff Sessions did not have to recuse himself. He could have supervised that investigation, stayed in touch with it, been aware of it. And even if criminal matters came up, he would not necessarily have had to recuse himself."
