Over the past few weeks, GOP lawmakers have become increasingly frustrated with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and calls for him to step down have grown. Now, things have gotten even worse for Sessions, House Freedom Caucus members Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) sat down with Fox News host Laura Ingraham to talk about their frustrations with Sessions and his Department of Justice.
Breitbart reported that Meadows and Jordan were livid to learn that Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein had threatened staffers with subpoenas, and they slammed Sessions for taking Rosenstein’s side and questioning the validity of this report.
“I was flabbergasted,” Jordan said. “I mean, what was the Attorney General saying? Rod Rosenstein hasn’t complied with Devin Nunes subpoena, hasn’t complied with Chairman Goodlatte’s subpoena. We caught them hiding information in the Strzok-Page text messages, redacting the fact that Peter Strzok was friends with Judge Contreas, one of the FISA Court judges. They tried to hide that from us. And today we learned from Catherine’s report that the head, in essence, the head of the Justice Department Rod Rosenstein was threatening members of the House Intelligence Committee for doing their job, trying to get answers for the American people, and the attorney general says, ‘That’s OK. We’re doing just fine.’”
Meadows then shot down the subpoena threat and declared that he was “confident” Sessions didn’t know “what he was talking about.”
“We’re fed up with it,” Meadows said.
President Donald Trump himself has been publicly bashing Sessions a lot lately, most recently when he criticized him once again for recusing himself from the Russia investigation.
“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself,” Trump said in the tweet. “I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”
