Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined Tucker Carlson Tuesday night to discuss the shocking revelation that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened members of Congress.
AWOL AG Jeff Sessions told Tucker Carlson that he’s “confident” Rosenstein didn’t threaten members of Congress.
Rep. Mark Meadows absolutely ripped Sessions to pieces for defending Rosenstein.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) shredded AWOL AG Sessions Tuesday night in an appearance on Fox News’ Ingraham Angle.
“For the Attorney General to say he’s confident that Rod Rosenstein did everything right, well I’m confident he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Meadows said.
Sessions is a disgrace. He recused himself from his duties the first day on the job and sits in the corner of the DOJ while Rosenstein and Mueller use KGB tactics to harass and intimidate President Trump and anyone connected to him.

On Tuesday, Fox News Catherine Herridge reported on emails obtained memorializing a January 18, closed-door meeting with DOJ, FBI and House Intel members where Rosenstein threatened GOP-led staffers if they didn’t stop their investigation.
Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said on Wednesday morning he saw first hand what Rosenstein’s threats did to Congressional staff members.
The #DOJ’s intimidation & stone-walling tactics have gone too far. I’ve heard first-hand from congressional staff following threats delivered Deputy AG #Rosenstein. Staff has literally been scared to the point of physically shaking in my office out of concern for their family.
