Dem suggests Trump focusing on Clinton, Sessions to distract from healthcare

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Monday said Americans need to focus on healthcare even as President Trump targets former Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“Trump wants you to focus on Sessions, Clinton, and Scaramucci this week,” Murphy tweeted, referring to the president’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

“You need to focus on health care, health care, and health care.”

Trump earlier on Monday questioned why investigators aren’t looking into Clinton.

“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” Trump asked in a tweet.

His tweet comes amid multiple investigations into Russian election meddling and whether Trump campaign aides colluded with the Russians.

In an earlier tweet, Trump quoted Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), who said that Democrats should blame themselves for their election loss, not Russia interference.

Senate Republicans plan to vote this week on revised healthcare legislation. But the legislation faces a number of serious issues and appears headed for failure.

Earlier this month, Murphy said that repealing ObamaCare without a replacement would be a “humanitarian disaster of incomprehensible scale.”
