President Donald Trump, who has been silent about the allegations facing Congressman Chris Collins, appears to have referenced him in a tweet in which the President calls out Attorney General Jeff Sessions. 

"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 tweets, "Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff....."

It is important to note that Sessions has nothing to do with the Collins case. The case is being handled by the Southern District of New York.
