Trump did not address the charges themselves or name the congressmen, but the tweet was apparently referring to the indictments this summer of Representatives Chris Collins of NY and Duncan D. Hunter of California, the president's two earliest congressional endorsers.
US President Donald Trump has escalated his attacks on Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, suggesting the Department of Justice put Republicans in mid-term jeopardy with recent indictments of two Republican congressmen.
Rep. Duncan Hunter of California was indicted and accused of fraud and stealing campaign funds for personal use, and Rep. Chris Collins of NY was indicted and accused of insider trading.
In an Oval Office interview last week with Bloomberg News, Trump declined to say whether he'd keep Sessions in his job after the election.
Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, of Nebraska, also reacted to the tweet, saying, "The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice - one for the majority party and one for the minority party".
Trump has previously pressed Sessions to investigate his perceived enemies and has accused Sessions of failing to take control of the Justice Department. Trump did not have any public events Monday.
Trump's second tweet is a lie. However, Trump has been at odds with Sessions after the lawmaker recused himself from the Russia investigation after it was revealed that he did not disclose to Senators that he held meetings with a Russian ambassador during Trump's election campaign.
Trump pointed to the popularity of the two men who faced an easy re-election before being indicted. Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Trump also defended his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and insisted he was unfairly treated, even after Manafort was found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes.
Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now.
The Justice Department also began investigating Hunter a year ago, with the House Ethics Committee announcing in March 2017 that it was holding off on taking action against Hunter because the Justice Department had launched a criminal investigation into his use of campaign funds. The Dems all hated him, wanted him out, thought he was disgusting - UNTIL I FIRED HIM! Mr Trump has repeatedly called it a "witch hunt".
