GOP Lawmaker Sends Letter to AG Sessions Demanding Answers About His Involvement in FBI Raid of Trump’s Lawyer

GOP lawmaker, Lee Zeldin wants answers from AG Sessions regarding the FBI raid of Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), with the support of Freedom Caucus members, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis are demanding answers from AG Sessions about the FBI raid of Michael Cohen’s office and residence.

On Tuesday, Rep Zeldin announced he sent a letter to AG Sessions demanding to know if he had any involvement in the decision to approve the FBI raid of Cohen.

“We would like to know if you approved, were consulted, or had any involvement in this decision by the Department of Justice,” Zeldin asked in a letter to AG Sessions about the FBI raid of Cohen on April 9th.

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein approved the decision to allow the FBI raid of Trump’s personal lawyer.

“In light of the fact that the action taken was not directly related to the Russia investigation, and the subject was the personal attorney of the President of the United States, it would appear that the Attorney General should have been involved,” Zeldin concluded in the letter.
