*Trump Bashes ‘Beleaguered’ Sessions for Not Looking Into Hillary Emails

President Trump kicked off Monday morning with a tweet that seemed to reflected his open hostility towards Jeff Sessions, his own appointee as attorney general. “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillary’s crimes & Russia relations?” the president wrote, describing his long-time supporter Sessions as troubled. Trump last week told The New York Times that he would not have appointed Sessions had he known he would recuse himself from the Russia probe. Sessions, of course, was forced to recuse after it was revealed that he’d met with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, despite claiming otherwise during his confirmation hearings


*Trump May be Considering Replacing Sessions with Giuliani:

President Trump is considering naming Rudy Giuliani to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a report on Monday. The president is so unhappy with Sessions, whom he criticized last week for recusing himself from the Russia investigations, that he is thinking of bringing back the former mayor to run the Justice Department, Axios reported, citing sources. In a tweet early Monday, Trump referred to Sessions as “beleaguered.” “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillary’s crimes & Russia relations?,” Trump wrote.

*Washington is ‘Much Worse than Anyone Ever Thought’: Trump:

President Trump suggested Monday that his anti-government corruption mantra of “draining the swamp” already needs an overhaul. “Drain the Swamp should be changed to Drain the Sewer – it’s actually much worse than anyone ever thought, and it begins with the Fake News!” the president tweeted. “After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that ‘Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia,’” he added in a separate tweet.

*WHO READS LBN? Author Cree LeFavour:

*LBN-MEDIA INSIDER:   ***The New York Times has asked that the television show “Fox & Friends” apologize for what a Times spokeswoman described as a “malicious and inaccurate segment” that aired last week accusing the paper of publishing a story in 2015 that had hindered the United States military’s attempt to kill Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS. In response, Fox News late on Sunday published an update to a story on its website and acknowledged the change in a brief “Fox & Friends” segment Monday morning. Both the updated article and the TV segment added part of a comment from The Times stating that the paper had described the piece to the Pentagon before publication and “they had no objections.” Neither the article nor the segment acknowledged the paper’s request for an apology nor did they respond directly to the accusations of inaccuracy.

*LBN-HEALTH WATCH:   ***A research team led by the Tokyo-based National Cancer Center Japan has developed a new test to diagnose 13 kinds of cancers from a single drop of blood, with a clinical study set to start from next month. The center’s research and ethics screening committee gave the green light to the study in mid-July. The research team will apply to the central government to put the new test into practical use within three years, at the earliest. Thus far, there has been no test to diagnose multiple kinds of cancers at one time. If the new test is introduced in comprehensive medical examinations and other checkups, deaths from cancer could be reduced.

*LBN-OVERHEARD:   ***Scott Disick is taking back his comments about being a self-identified “sex addict.” “I would say I think it’s a little rude that everybody keeps addressing me as a sex addict,” the 34-year-old reality star told E! News in Las Vegas over the weekend. “I just like sex, but I’m not a sex addict. I said that in a humorous, joking fashion on the show and now I’m getting billed as one, and it’s not the case. I do like sex, but I am not an addict.”
