Devin Nunes Threatens To Hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress

Things are starting to heat up.

For too long, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has done nothing about the stonewalling the Department of Justice is doing on congressional investigations.

While on some matters, Sessions has ordered the speeding up for some document releases, that hasn’t stopped many conservatives from calling for Sessions’ head.

And now, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is threatening to hold Sessions in contempt of Congress over the FBI and the DOJ possibly violating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

From Daily Mail:

Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said he is going to ‘move quickly’ to have Attorney General Jeff Sessions held in contempt of Congress.

His committee is investigating claims the FBI and Justice Department violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act while probing the Trump campaign’s Russia connections.

Nunes said yesterday that the institutions ‘are not going to comply with our subpoena’ for information relating to the investigation.

Nunes told “Fox and Friends”: ‘The only thing left to do is we have to move quickly to hold the attorney general of the United States in contempt and that is what I will press for this week.’

Nunes is trying to get to the bottom of what exactly occurred during the 2016 presidential election and the DOJ’s investigation into then-candidate Trump. Jeff Sessions has been dragging his feet on this and hasn’t shown the initiative to get Congress the documents they are requesting.

This is unacceptable, and a mockery of the rule of law. Jeff Sessions is acting exactly like AG Eric Holder, who, if you remember, was also held in contempt of Congress.

It sounds like it’s time to bring some harsh justice to the Department bearing its name. Jeff Sessions needs to help out Congress or pack his bags. Period.

What do you think? Should Jeff Sessions be held in contempt of Congress?
