Attorney General Jeff Sessions set them straight today.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that he would be open to bringing in an outside counselor to investigate the practices of his Department of Justice predecessors under former President Barack Obama.
Sessions was asked about such an arrangement during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who suggested that Sessions might ask outside counsel to look into the department under Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
That counsel, Hewitt suggested, would have “authority to bring charges if underlying crimes were uncovered.” He pointed to controversies including alleged bias within the IRS against conservative political groups and the “Fast and Furious” scandal, in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed guns to be sold illegally in the hopes of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels.Sessions was not on the offense when he was a senator.
But President Trump has shown Republicans they need to push back twice as hard.
You cannot go along to get along with people who treated you as shabbily as the Democratic Party did the last eight years under the leadership of Barack Obama.
And the media treated Republicans bad, too.
So Trump taught Republicans how to fight back and win.
Part of the change Americans want is for someone to stand up for them. And if you cannot fight for yourself, how can you fight for them?
Good job today, General Sessions.
