President Donald Trump on Wednesday unleashed a new attack on Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- just hours after a report revealed that the president may have obstructed justice by pressuring the attorney general to influence special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.


The New York Times reported on Tuesday that Mueller's obstruction of justice investigation is looking into a meeting between Sessions and Trump in March 2017. According to the Times, Trump asked Sessions to reverse his recusal in Mueller's investigation.

Mueller's team is said to have interviewed Sessions about the meeting, making the attorney general a possible witness in the obstruction case.

On Wednesday morning, Trump brazenly tweeted a fresh attack on Sessions.

"There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!” Trump tweeted, quoting Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

Trump added: "And I wish I did!"
