Showing his disregard for Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his own Justice Department’s independence, President Donald Trump tweeted that federal indictments against two Republican congressmen placed the GOP in midterm election jeopardy.
Sessions blasted the decision in a statement, saying that the Obama administration “violated its duty to enforce our immigration laws by directing and implementing a categorical, multipronged non-enforcement immigration policy for a massive group of illegal aliens.”
The announcement comes months after Sessions signed a religious liberty memo in October, which stated it would help support employers making hiring decisions based on religion. The task force will also help enforce religious freedom, as stated in the memo and will also reach out to religious organizations for their input on issues in the community.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has angrily denied that there were problems related to his decision to recuse himself from the FBI’s investigation into Russian activities during the election.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Tuesday he’s seen no basis for firing Robert Mueller, the former FBI director he appointed as special counsel to oversee an investigation into potential coordination between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia. Rosenstein repeatedly conveyed his support for Mueller’s role at a Senate hearing, held the morning after a close friend of President Donald Trump was quoted in a television interview as saying he was considering dismissing Mueller.
