CNN is reporting that an aid to Attorney General Jeff Sessions went to Capitol Hill and asked a congressional staffer for dirt on FBI Director James shortly before he was fired.
This flagrant misuse of power coming from the Department of Justice is disgusting. Not to mention that Jeff Sessions allegedly ‘recused’ himself from the DOJ Russia Investigation, which makes this gesture highly suspicious. Either Sessions was too oblivious to know or he had a hand in the effort to weaken FBI Director Comey.
Trump infamously fired Comey ‘Because of that Russia Thing’, as he told NBC’s Lester Holt in an infamous 2017 television interview.
In other news, Jake Tapper reported that WH Lawyers allegedly were told by Trump to stop Jeff Sessions from recusing himself. WH Lawyers also apparently lied to Trump about whether he had the authority to fire FBI Director Comey.
