Last time we checked, the Attorney General of the United States serves as the top dog over the Department of Justice.
So what the heck is Jeff Sessions doing these days? From the looks of it, not much. And that’s more or less how Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) sees it as well.
In the early days of the administration when the Russia investigation was just getting started, Sessions recused himself given his affiliation with the Trump campaign.
But it appears he’s recused himself from pretty much everything else, too.
And now with the near-daily revelations of connections and collusion between members of Mueller’s team and the Obama-Hillary campaign machine, one wonders what exactly it might take to get Sessions to call for an investigation.
Rep. Jordan is done waiting to find out, and he’s calling on Sessions to investigate or resign. We agree.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is on a quest to ferret out the truth of evidence suggesting the Clinton campaign colluded with the Russians, resulting in the Trump campaign being spied on. In fact, he demanded that Attorney General Jeff Sessions appoint a special counsel to investigate the matter, or else step down.
Jordan appeared on Fox and Friends Thursday, where he pointed out that all the investigating done into Russian matters had been to find out whether or not the Trump campaign had benefited from their help.
“To date, we have zero evidence of that taking place,” he said.
Jordan laid out what evidence of collusion actually exists, however, and it all points to Clinton.
“But what do we know? We have learned in the last several weeks that the Clinton campaign paid the law firm who paid Fusion GPS, who paid Christopher Steele, the MI-6 agent, who paid Russians,” said Jordan. “The Clinton campaign paid Russians for this report for this dossier, and it’s been reported that this dossier was all dressed up by the government taken to the FISA court and became the basis to spy on Americans.”
“So I think that’s what happened, all the evidence points to that as being what took place,” adding that all FBI Director Christopher Wray, Sessions, et al., have to do to clear this all up is just release the applications to prove him wrong. So far, no one has lifted a finger to do so, leading Jordan to believe that collusion did take place.
Jordan noted that Sessions doesn’t seem to understand where his recusal ends and begins, and gave the attorney general a suggestion.
