“ 'GOP Lawmakers asking Sessions to Investigate Comey and Hillary Clinton.’ @FoxNews Good luck with that request!” the president wrote on Twitter.

Trump did not provide additional details, but his tweet comes several days after conservative lawmakers in a letter asked Sessions to probe the former FBI director and former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of State.

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,” the lawmakers said.

Trump has targeted both Comey and Clinton on Twitter in the past. He most recently went after Comey in a barrage of tweets leading up to and after the release of the former FBI director’s new book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.” 

“Slippery James Comey, a man who always ends up badly and out of whack (he is not smart!), will go down as the WORST FBI Director in history, by far!” Trump said on April 15.

He has also said Comey is “a proven leaker” and accused the former FBI director of unlawfully leaking classified information to the media.
