Chaffetz: ‘I Think It’s Time for the Attorney General to Go’
On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” 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.
