An incensed Jeffrey Toobin bluntly called out Donald Trump on Tuesday morning over a presidential tweet attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions for allowing an investigation into corruption by two GOP lawmakers.
The President's tweets about various indictments brought against California Rep. Duncan Hunter who misused more than $250,000 in campaign funds and then threw his wife under the bus, and Chris Collins of NY who was indicted on insider trading and wire fraud.
Trump recently told Bloomberg News that he would keep Sessions as attorney general until after the midterm elections.
Trump stayed at the White House on Monday, watching television.
The justice department has not commented on the tweet.
Trump's attacks on Sessions, and his efforts to force his attorney general to quit his post after Sessions recused himself from the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election, are part of an obstruction investigation into the president by special counsel Robert Mueller and his team.

Hunter was indicted for using campaign funds for personal use and were charged with counts of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy.
Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty in their cases.
Toobin added that the public can wear itself out in regards to its outrage over Trump's behavior.
Trump chose to say nothing about what his two congressional backers have been accused of, instead complaining about politically inconvenient it is that the charges endanger their positions ahead of the midterm elections. "These two men have been charged with crimes because of evidence, not because of who the president was when the investigations began", Sasse said in a statement.
The White House summoned the press pool about 10:30 a.m. for a road trip, and the president emerged from the White House 10 minutes later rocking a red polo shirt, dark trousers and a white MAGA hat.
The Justice Department also began investigating Hunter previous year, with the House Ethics Committee announcing in March 2017 that it was holding off on taking action against Hunter because the Justice Department had launched a criminal investigation into his use of campaign funds.
