George Conway is throwing himself into the new mix-up between Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions.

A Justice Department decision to withhold prosecuting two GOP congressmen to help them win re-election would be highly unethical and a blatantly politically motivated break from the department's nonpartisan mission. "Two easy wins now in doubt", Trump tweeted.

Trump was referring to the charges brought against Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) for allegedly using campaign money to pay for his family's personal expenses, including travel, dining out, his children's tuition, and more; and Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), who has suspended his re-election campaign over insider trading allegations. He's made abundantly clear his feelings on the role that Sessions and the Justice Department should play in protecting him and targeting Hillary Clinton. Immediately he became a wonderful man, a saint like figure in fact.

Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) released a statement 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". He was also under investigation by congressional ethics officials.

Allies, including Republican members of Congress, have long advised Trump that firing Sessions - especially before the November midterm elections - would be deeply damaging to the party.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment on Trump's tweets, which did not name the congressmen.

Though Trump argued that the investigations began during the Obama administration, the charges against Collins - which include securities and wire fraud - stem from actions he allegedly took past year, and the Justice Department launched a criminal investigation into Hunter's use of campaign funds after a referral from the Federal Election Committee.

His comments came a day after Trump railed against Sessions for investigations into a pair of Republican congressmen.

Mr Session said he "will not be improperly influenced by political considerations" in August, hours after Mr Trump had critcised him in a interview on Fox News. Trump would probably argue that he's saying no indictments should be handed down this close to an election, regardless of party.

The tweet marked Trump's latest attack on the Justice Department, which has a long history of carrying out investigations and pursuing indictments in a nonpartisan fashion.
