The DOJ’s Jeff Sessions announced on Thursday that a federal prosecutor was evaluating certain issues involving the FBI, but said he would not appoint a second special counsel at this point.
Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan joined Laura Ingraham to discuss the decision:
Freedom Caucus leader Mark Meadows spoke out against the decision not to appoint a second special council:
“We need to have this special counsel. I disagree with the attorney general,” Meadows said. “For the attorney general to suggest there’s not enough there there is just extremely disappointing.”
Jordan pointed out that McCabe is just one of many top FBI officials involved in the Clinton and Russia investigations who have been fired or demoted.
“If those aren’t extraordinary circumstances warranting a second special counsel, I don’t know what the heck is,” Jordan said. “I don’t know why the attorney general keeps postponing this. Everyone in town knows we need a second special counsel to get to the bottom of this.”
Gateway Pundit reports:
Rep. Mark Meadows: When you look at the facts. The facts speak for themselves. When we look at is it a material fact that Peter Strzok had a relationship with a FISA judge and they concealed it. The answer is yes. We now know that the investigation into Donald Trump started late July (2016). Within 7 days there was a meeting within the Department of Justice where they said the White House is leading this…
Laura Ingraham: I think people missed this. That the White House “was leading”…
Mark Meadows: Well that was in that meeting. We’ve got text messages that would suggest that. And then within seven days of that we got a meeting in the White House with the Chief of Staff of President Obama saying — we can’t draw a conclusion — but we can certainly look at the facts and the facts do speak to further investigation.
