posted by Hannity Staff - 5.30.18

President Trump escalated his war of words with Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week, saying he “wishes” he picked a different person to lead the Department of Justice after months of “frustrating” inaction on a series of issues.

The President called-out Sessions on social media Wednesday, quoting GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy after the Republican lawmaker said, “there are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else,” to which Trump added, “I wish I did.”

Just last week, the President demanded the DOJ launch an investigation into whether the FBI had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign heading into the 2016 election.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice and the Office of the Attorney General have yet to reply to the President’s comments.

FIREWORKS: Jeff Sessions GOES NUCLEAR During Senate Testimony

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.01.17

Attorney General Jeff Sessions got into a heated exchange with a Democratic Congresswoman during his Congressional testimony on Tuesday, fiercely defending his previous statements before the Intelligence Committee and re-affirming he had “never met with or had any conversation with any Russians.”

Sessions was speaking with the House Judiciary Committee when he was pressed by Rep. Sheila Jackson on his previous comments regarding the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia, asking if he wished to “revise” his statement following recent revelations that a staff volunteer had once inquired about a possible meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Yes or no, does he wish to change his testimony in the Intelligence Committee?” asked Jackson.

“I would just say this: I stand by this testimony at the Intelligence Committee,” Sessions fired-back. “I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with the campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign.”

Watch the heated exchange above.

FISA FALLOUT: Jeff Sessions Says DOJ to INVESTIGATE FBI’s Mishandling of the ‘Trump Dossier’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.19.18

Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed Sunday the Department of Justice plans to thoroughly investigate the FBI’s mishandling of the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ in obtaining a FISA warrant against the Trump campaign; adding his agency will get to the bottom of the bureau’s use of the Clinton-financed document to surveil the President’s advisors in 2016.

Sessions was speaking with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo when he was asked whether the DOJ was currently probing allegations the FBI used the shady document to obtain FISA warrants against Trump insider Carter Page.

“Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for the dossier?” asked Bartiromo.

“Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate,” said Sessions. “That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than a proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant.”
