President Trump took a new swipe at Attorney General Jeff Sessions early Tuesday, as part of a rapid-fire tweetstorm that featured praise for his son-in-law, a shout-out to Sen. John McCain and a broadside at the head of the FBI.

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump railed.

The president also raised questions about “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage” his campaign” and “quietly working to boost Clinton.”

“So where is the investigation A.G.,” he wrote, adding the Twitter handle for Fox News host Sean Hannity, one of his staunchest supporters.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflected questions about Russian meddling in the 2016 elections by raising the Clinton campaign’s alleged contact with the Ukrainians.

“Frankly, I think something that may make sense is looking at the Democrat National Committee coordinated opposition research directly with the Ukrainian Embassy,” she said during a recent media briefing.

Trump also slammed Andrew McCabe in a separate tweet.

“Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” he wrote.

He then turned his attention to health care and his stalled efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

“After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate!” he wrote. “The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand.”

Trump then praised Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior adviser, who answered questions by the Senate intelligence committee behind closed doors on Monday.

“Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt. Next up, 11-year-old Barron Trump!” he wrote, referring to his youngest son.

The president also sent well wishes to McCain, who will return to the Senate on Tuesday to vote on opening debate on an Obamacare repeal.

McCain was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.

“So great that John McCain is coming back to vote. Brave – American hero! Thank you John,” wrote Trump, who infamously said during the campaign that the senator is not a war hero because he was captured in Vietnam.
