Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows Blasts Sessions’ Decision to Refuse a Second Special Counsel
On Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he will not be appointing a second special counsel to investigate crimes committed by Obama’s FBI and DOJ.
Rather, AG Sessions revealed the identity of a ‘top federal prosecutor’ who will be investigating the abuses.
The Hill reports:
CNN first reported Thursday that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program against a former Trump campaign adviser.
Huber has also been looking at whether the FBI should have more thoroughly probed Hillary Clinton‘s ties to Uranium One, a Russian nuclear energy agency.
U.S. Attorney John Huber was first appointed to his position by Barack Obama. He was reappointed by President Trump, but it’s still unsettling at one point he was Obama’s pick.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) expressed his disappointment in Sessions’ decision to forgo a second special counsel.
Meadows tweeted: So the Obama DOJ can open a legally questionable investigation into the Trump campaign—allegedly based on a campaign volunteer mouthing off at a London bar—but this DOJ can’t appoint a second special counsel after all the troubling documents we’ve seen?

Chairman Meadows said exactly what we are all thinking.
Mueller was appointed as special counsel by Rod Rosenstein without even naming a crime, yet here we are with overwhelming evidence of many crimes committed by Obama’s FBI, DOJ and CIA and Sessions won’t appoint a special counsel.
Even worse, Rod Rosenstein misled the FISA court and signed off on the FISA application to spy on Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page.
