Attorney General Jeff Sessions is open to appointing an outside counsel to investigate the countless scandals of President Obama’s Department of Justice and IRS.
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.
A full investigation into the Obama administration’s many crimes must be conducted. Obama was never properly vetted and for 8 years undermined the Constitution with very little opposition. He still thinks he’s in charge with his shadow government working to sabotage President Trump.
