Trump's tweet storm continued on Tuesday, when the president claimed one of the 19 women accusing him of sexual misconduct had made up a story published that morning in the Washington Post. That statement doesn't seem to reflect reality, however.
"We are doing an bad lot of work, we are taking this very seriously, it is a national security issue", the official said, answering criticism.
It has not yet penalized any Russian officials for interfering in the 2016 election, arguing the threat of sanctions has been enough of a deterrent.
Trump has publicly attacked Sessions for months on issues related to the Russian Federation investigation. Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?
Several members of Trump's campaign have been charged or admitted to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about their contacts with Kremlin-related officials who are accused of trying to sway the 2016 vote in Trump's favour.

Trump has only reluctantly supported the finding of the US intelligence community, and now Mueller, that Russian Federation carried out a campaign to help him win the White House.
