Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on Robert Mueller’s never-ending Russia investigation; saying the Attorney General needs to intervene immediately.
“98 or 99 percent of what Mueller’s doing is not covered by Sessions’ recusal over the Russian campaign investigation. Sessions -if he did his job- could intervene tonight or tomorrow, it would be totally within his authority and he should,” said Newt.
“The President should take every example of what we’re talking about and simply declassify it. I want to see every decision memo about Benghazi where the Obama team consciously decided to lie to the American people,” he added.

DAY OF RECKONING: Sessions Says MORE 'TERMINATIONS' Possible After Comey Report
Attorney General Jeff Sessions slammed former FBI Director James Comey just hours before his Inspector General is expected to release his scathing report Thursday; warning DOJ officials that more firings are possible in the wake of the IG investigation.
Speaking with the Hill Thursday, Sessions said Comey made a series of “big mistakes” in the run up to the 2016 race for the White House; adding that any additional revelations could lead to more “terminations.”
“I think it will be a lengthy report and a careful report,” said Sessions. “If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do so.”
The AG went on to blast Comey’s questionable behavior during the early months of the Trump administration, defending the President’s decision to remove the FBI boss.
“It was the right thing to do. The facts were pretty clear on it. He made a big mistake and he testified only a few weeks before that termination that he would do it again if he had the opportunity. So we felt like there was a serious breach of discipline within the department if we allowed him to continue,” said Sessions.

SESSIONS IN SESSION: The AG Rips ‘Sanctimonious Snowflake’ CAMPUS CULTURE
Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a fiery attack on the United States’ “campus culture” before a gathering of conservative students this week; saying America’s universities are churning out a generation of “sanctimonious snowflakes.”
Sessions blasted the Left’s rigid ideology during his address Tuesday, claiming many colleges are no longer interested in “molding a generation of mature, well-informed adults.”
“Rather than molding a generation of mature, well-informed adults, some schools are doing everything they can to create a generation of sanctimonious, sensitive, supercilious snowflakes,” said the Attorney General.
“Too many schools are coddling students,” Sessions added. “There was a ‘cry-in’ at Cornell after the 2016 election, therapy dogs at the University of Kansas. … I hope they had plenty of tissues.”
“Stand strong for what you believe in,” he told the students.
