Gregg Jarrett: Rod Rosenstein Duped Jeff Sessions Again – Picked Obama Holdover Huber to Investigate DOJ (VIDEO)
On Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he will not appoint a second special counsel to investigate crimes committed by Obama’s FBI and DOJ.
Instead, Sessions revealed U.S. Attorney John Huber will be the ‘top federal prosecutor’ who will be investigating the abuses.
U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed by Barack Obama in 2015.
FOX News legal expert Gregg Jarrett and Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch discussed Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s pick of Huber Friday on Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Tom Fitton: This is classic two-step on the part of the Justice Department leadership. I don’t think they want to be seen as going strong against all of these individuals. You know why I think in the end, Gregg? It’s because they know it’s going to run into the Mueller investigation. That investigation has been compromised by all the activity we have talked about…
Gregg Jarrett: So who picked Huber? Well I have a hunch here. First of all Sessions was a senator, he didn’t know anybody in the Department of Justice. Rod Rosenstein, spent a lifetime in the Department of Justice, he knows the players there and he picked an Obama holdover in Huber. So it strikes me that this is a Rod Rosenstein manipulation and machination in which he basically duped Sessions, who is naive and gullible enough to say, “Let’s get Huber!” Is that about right?
