Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr called on Friday for the apparent jailing of several people who have been the target of President Donald Trump's ire in the past.

"Are there any grownups w/ integrity left in the DOJ?" Falwell tweeted. "When I was a kid, I watched Repubs join Dems to force Nixon out. Now Dems won’t join Repubs to lock up Comey, Lynch, Ohr, Rosenstein, Strzok, @HillaryClinton, @BarackObama & maybe even @jeffsessions despite damning evidence!"

Falwell has been a

of the president, and personally endorsed Trump before the 2016 election.

Falwell did not cite the evidence he referred to in the tweet.

The president has expressed his anger toward Attorney General Jeff Session's decision to recuse himself from Special Council Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling.

"Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action," Trump tweeted on Saturday.
