Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) joined Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night to discuss the latest stonewalling by the Jeff Sessions Department of Justice.
Mark Meadows told Lou either the DOJ turns over the subpoenaed documents this week or the House Intelligence Committee will press contempt of Congress charges against Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
This was a remarkable interview. Meadows also said the Sessions DOJ is no better than the Obama DOJ.
It really is past time for Jeff Sessions to step down.

Mark Meadows: I know he (Chairman Nunes) is meeting with some of his Intel Committee Members right now as we ramp up the pressure. I can tell you that we have one real problem right now Lou. We have a Department of Justice under this administration saying they will not give documents to Congress that we’re entitled to constitutionally. And we have a Department of Justice that’s trying to write a narrative to suggest that the American people don’t need to see it. I can tell you that I’m not seeing a whole lot of difference between the Trump Administration DOJ and the Obama administration DOJ in terms of them giving documents… One of two things will happen this week. Either we will get a contempt citation or we’ll get the documents. I hope we get the documents but one of two things will happen this week.
