(National Sentinel) Deep State: Rep. Jim Jordan said during a Fox News interview Tuesday evening that he believes Attorney General Jeff Sessions will soon become an ex-attorney general following the midterm elections.
The Ohio Republican also told host Martha McCallum it’s “obvious” to him that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is actually running the Justice Department, though he doesn’t seem happy about that.
“I mean, it’s obvious to me, I think obvious to most people, Rod Rosenstein is in charge of the Justice Department, not Jeff Sessions,” Jordan said.
“And I think it’s also obvious that the president is going to be looking for a new attorney general. I think he’s made that pretty clear. My guess is that happens sometime in the not-so-distant future,” Jordan continued.
“Jeff Sessions is a good man. He was a good senator, but I think it’s — the president of the United States wants an attorney general that conduct matters different than Jeff Sessions, and I think that will happen sometime, like I said, in the not-too-distant future,” he added.
The Ohio Republican then accused Rosenstein of “making it difficult” for Congress to do its job as a separate and equal branch of government, a comment that was likely directed at the deputy AG’s slow-walking and then redacting documents requested by lawmakers investigating various Obama Deep State crimes.
