Jason Chaffetz and Lou Hobbs are spot on in this interview about the problems at the Department of Justice: Absolutely the wrong call and the audacity to thwart the efforts of Senator Grassley and Senator Graham and others in the Senate. You have a huge contingent in the House… I have long thought that Attorney General Sessions should go. I think he’s there as Attorney General in name only. He’s not leading the department or agency in the core fundamental problems they have there. Months ago I said he ought to leave and until he leaves they are going to continue to have these problems.
CHAFFETZ PREVIOUSLY CALLED FOR SESSIONS TO GO:
Jason Chaffetz just went there! He said what everyone else is saying about the DOJ’s Jeff Sessions…TIME TO GO!
Fox News Contributor and former Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should step down.

Chaffetz said, “I’ve got to tell you, and it pains me to say this a little bit, but I don’t think the attorney general is up to the job that he’s doing. He’s absent from this. The reason there’s a special counsel is because he had to recuse himself from everything. And I just, my own personal opinion, I think it’s time for the attorney general to go. Because you need leadership there, some deep systemic problems there.”
Chaffetz also cited the DOJ not turning over documents on the Fast & Furious program and Sessions’ refusal to prosecute Clinton tech aide Bryan Pagliano for defying a Congressional subpoena.
