Attorney General Jeff Sessions was nominated in a process riddled with controversy. Sessions was labeled a bigot by Congressional Democrats who tried to thwart his approval; however, they are now less complaining as the new Attorney General does his job better and better.
The former Senator has publicly stated that he is prepared to hire a bipartisan counsel to investigate the corruption allegations leveled against the Obama era administration.
While speaking to radio host Hugh Hewitt, he left the door open for a new Council to come in and scrutinize the controversies.
The Freedom Daily reports:
“Well, I’m going to do everything I possibly can to restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice. So we’ll have to consider whether or not some outside counsel is needed. Generally, a good review of that internally is the first step before any such decision is made.”
Sessions stated that, should the independent Council discover any wrongdoing, his office will bring on charges, and a full investigation will begin.
This comes at a time when liberals have been pushing the department for an independent and bipartisan investigation into Donald Trump and his surrogates ties to Russia. The President has called for an independent investigation into whether the Obama administration wiretapped his 2016 presidential campaign. It appears that the oversight and intelligence committees in the Senate and House of Representatives are going to be mightily busy.
