"They are attempting to rig this election," Sessions, who supports the Republican presidential nominee, said Saturday.

"They will not succeed."

The GOP nominee earlier Sunday tweeted the election is being rigged "by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary!"

The Republican nominee has raised the possibility the election would be rigged several times in the past.

Trump has been embroiled in controversy since the release earlier this month of a 2005 tape in which he talks about how he could grope and kiss women without their consent because of his celebrity status.

Multiple women last week came forward and accused Trump of uninvited kissing and groping.

Trump in recent days has ratcheted up his attacks on the women accusing him of sexual misconduct. He has mocked their looks and characterized them as publicity seekers.
