Trump Attacks Sessions Over Charges Brought Against GOP Lawmakers: Dems ‘Must Love Him Now’





President Trump on Monday tore into Attorney General Jeff Sessions for bringing criminal charges against a pair of GOP lawmakers in recent weeks, suggesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had put GOP hopes of retaining both seats in the November elections in peril with the move.

“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,” he continued, referencing charges against Reps. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) and Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), both of whom were early supporters of Trump. The two lawmakers were Trump’s earliest supporters in Congress during the 2016 election.




Trump added that Democrats “must love” Sessions in the wake of the charges.

Trump also inaccurately claimed no Democrats voted to confirm Sessions, when Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) did vote in Sessions’s favor.
