Trump Blasts Jeff Sessions Over Indictments Of 2 GOP Congressmen
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Labor Day to once again air his disdain for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In a series of tweets, the president accused his attorney general of hurting Republicans’ chances in the upcoming midterm elections by obtaining indictments of two GOP lawmakers up for re-election.
“Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department,” Trump tweeted. “Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff......”
The president’s comments referred to Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), who were indicted last month in two separate cases.
The FBI arrested Collins on Aug. 8 on insider trading charges related to an Australian biotechnology company. His son and the father of his son’s fiancée also face charges. Less than two weeks later, a grand jury indicted Hunter and his wife on charges of improperly using campaign funds.
Both congressmen have pleaded not guilty.
Collins and Hunter were the first two members of Congress to publicly support Trump’s candidacy for president in February 2016.
Collins initially planned to run for re-election as he fought the charges, but he has since decided to suspend his campaign. Hunter has continued his re-election bid.
