He DID IT: Sessions has appointed ‘senior prosecutor’ OUTSIDE D.C. to probe FISA abuses

(National SentinelBehind the Scenes: Attorney General Jeff Session’s office confirmed to Fox News correspondent Shannon Bream Thursday that the AG has appointed a “senior federal prosecutor” to look into alleged abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by the Obama administration.

In an interview with Bream on Wednesday, Sessions appeared to lay the groundwork for the appointment of a second special counsel to look into allegations of abuse but did not say specifically that a special counsel appointment was coming.



On Tuesday, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., demanded the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate FISA abuses, The Gateway Pundit reported.

And last week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., sent a letter to Sessions urging him to appoint a special counsel to investigate FISA abuses as well as how and why the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails ended and President Donald J. Trump’s “Russian collusion” investigation began. More than a dozen lawmakers have since signed Zeldin’s letter.

On Wednesday evening, Sessions confirmed to Bream that he has appointed someone outside of Washington, D.C., to examine evidence — part of which was outlined in the House Intelligence Committee’s “FISA memo” issued by the Republican leadership.

On Thursday, Bream confirmed with Session’s office that the AG was not talking about the inspector general, Michael Horowitz, but a separate “senior federal prosecutor.”

“Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations,” Sessions told Bream in an interview that ran late Wednesday night.

“I have appointed a person outside of Washington — many years at the Department of Justice — to look at all of the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we are conducting that investigation.”

In addition, Sessions said he is “well aware that we have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of the FISA process.”

“We are not afraid to look at that,” the AG, and former Alabama senator, explained. “The inspector general, some think that our inspector general is not very strong, but he has almost 500 employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors, and they are looking at the FISA process.”

“We must make sure it is done properly, and we are going to do that, and I will consider the request.”

    The only chance Sessions has to repair his awful image is strong & fast action, plus an end to the Mueller farce he created. We do not even know if he assigned someone still in the DOJ. For all we know, it is another Mueller type. This may be nothing but a reaction to pressure. Recall, Sessions supports Rosenstein & Mueller.

    NOW THAT WE HAVE A NEW SPECIAL PROCECUTOR “OUTSIDE D.C.” THE FIRST THING HE/SHE
    MUST DO, IS APPOINT A GRAD JURY OF IMPARTIAL MEMBERS, AND DO THIS CORRECTLY.

  3. Is this actually the same old news from months ago about Huber in Utah doing an investigation?

  4. This is old news from April 16 and Sessions hasn’t done squat. Fire this never was.

    Sessions is doing nothing new. He should be fired at the first opportunity – which is the day after, Nov. 7, to be exact.
