On Tuesday night Jeff Sessions told Tucker Carlson that he did not believe Rosenstein threatened Congress.
Jeff Sessions: well, I don’t know if they’ve confirmed that exactly. In fact the FBI Director, the senior ethics attorney for the Department of Justice who was in the room said that is a mischaracterization of really of what occurred… We understand in this department that we are accountable to the president and are accountable to Congress.
Tucker Carlson: Did the Deputy Attorney General threaten to subpoena the email or phone records of the members of the House Intel Committee?
Jeff Sessions: All I can say is Chris Wray and the senior ethics attorney and others and did not see it in that same fashion.
