With many calling for Attorney General Sessions to resign, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton would like to see AG Sessions remain in his post, un-recuse himself and become more aggressive in the pursuit of justice in some key, prominent areas.
Prosecuting cases involving Hillary Clinton and other Democrats is important, the American people want and deserve answers and he believes Sessions has an obligation to provide them to us. He’s asked by Trish Regan, “Why is it that Jeff Sessions isn’t being more aggressive?”
Fitton points to the key impediment to his exercising his duties, saying, “Because he’s recused himself from this key rule of law issue, which is the investigation of what went on during the Obama administration with respect to how it handled the Clinton investigations.”
He continues, “And now this whole Russia collusion scandal which has metastasized under a rogue prosecutor into an investigation into anything this prosecutor wants to investigate. You know, the President has a right to expect that his Attorney General and his appointees are going to supervise prosecutors appropriately and that’s not happening here.”
Fitton notes, “And he’s not really answerable to anyone, Mueller isn’t, which raises not only constitutional concerns but just from a practical perspective, who’s running the show at the Justice Department? This is a major investigation that is being done without any adult supervision, and there are other investigations that many expected to have been done that the Justice Department is AWOL on.”
Regan says, “So Sessions, in your view, I’m guessing you think he needs to go.” Fitton isn’t there yet. He says, “I don’t think he needs to go, I think he needs to step up. I think he needs to un-recuse himself. He can un-recuse himself. I think he was cornered into recusing himself initially and I think he inappropriately recused himself.” Fitton says, “He should fix the situation and start running the Justice Department, and start taking control of these investigations as appropriate.
That would seem to be the best possible resolution to the problem. The Democrats have vilified Sessions despite his “honorable” acts. As always, Republican accommodations are seen as a sign of weakness. Sessions needs to un-recuse himself and run the Justice Department as he should have from day one. Lynch never recused herself from a real conflict. It’s insane that Sessions has in this fabricated one.
Save your job, your career and the Presidency, Mr. Attorney General. Do as Fitton says.
