Finally we’re hearing what Trump fans have been dying to hear. AG Jeff Sessions may appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Obama’s Department of Justice.
In a conversation with radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Sessions left the door open for a special counsel to take the lead on the investigation into these Obama-era scandals.
“Well I’m going to do everything I possibly can to restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice,” Sessions said. “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.”
If the counsel finds wrongdoing, it will have the authority to bring charges, Sessions noted. He insisted it will only come to this if he concludes it will be necessary to restore the “independence and professionalism” of the department.
We’ll see if it comes to fruition. It it’s certainly needed. Obama’s DOJ was the most corrupt agency in America’s history.
