Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett: Rod Rostenstein and Jeff Sessions Should Be Held In Contempt!

FOX News Legal analyst Gregg Jarrett discussed yesterday why AG Jeff Sessions and Assistant AG Rod Rosenstein should be held in contempt.

The FBI and DOJ redacted the very documents they kept secret in order to cover up the corruption of James Comey and Robert Mueller. There is clearly something strange about the stonewalling, especially considering how close Sessions and Trump were during the 2016 campaign.

The American people deserve to get to the truth of the made up, phony Russia investigation. It’s up to the Justice Department to get the necessary documents turned over what will exonerate Trump once and for all.

Here’s the full video:

Recently, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), agreed that it’s time for action:

As Arkansas Online reported:

The leader of the House Intelligence Committee is threatening to move quickly on a vote to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress if the Department of Justice doesn’t turn over material related to the Russia investigation.

Chairman Devin Nunes said it doesn’t matter that Sessions recused himself from decisions regarding Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election; he’s the head of the Justice Department, so he would be the initial target of a contempt resolution.

House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Tuesday that he hasn’t spoken with Nunes about the issue yet. “We expect the administration to comply” with congressional requests, Ryan said.

Nunes, a California Republican, first floated a possible contempt resolution over the weekend and on Monday doubled down on his sense of urgency.

“We know they have a long history of stonewalling us, and we’re well aware of it, that’s why we need to move more quickly than usual,” Nunes said in a brief interview. “We’re not going to give them the opportunity to squirm around and put lies out and mislead and obfuscate like they’ve done in the past. Those days are over.”

The Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena last week to demand Justice Department documents related to the origins of the Russia investigation.
