Washington - President Donald Trump is questioning why those investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion by members of his campaign aren't digging into Hillary Clinton's "crimes & Russia relations."

In doing so, the president took his latest swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, including him in the list of people who he says should be investigating Clinton's potential Russia links.

Trump tweeted on Monday, "So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered AG, looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?"

Sessions recused himself from the investigation earlier this year after it was revealed that he had met with a top Russian diplomat last year.

Trump condemned Sessions' recusal in a New York Times interview last week, saying he never should have taken the job as attorney general.
