Many Republican voters are sick and tired of Attorney General Jeff Sessions seemingly being shunted to the sidelines, instead of focusing on doing his job.
From the start of the Russia investigation, when Sessions recused himself, the Attorney General has been a non-factor in investigation after investigation. GOP voters are tired of the seemingly slapdash way our government is currently running all of these investigations, and it’s time for the Attorney General to reestablish his authority.
GOP consultant Ed Rollins is similarly frustrated and believes that Sessions should be fully engaged in the State Department/FBI/Clinton investigation.
Rollins told Fox News:
“You have to have a core of your own beliefs and you have to basically say I think there’s a conflict of interest here, I think I’ll step aside.Unfortunately, the only person who stepped aside is Jeff Sessions who should be fully engaged. He has no reason not be fully engaged today as the Attorney General.”
Maria Bartiromo: Your thoughts on the FISA memo, corruption at the top of the FBI, Ed Rollins?
Ed Rollins: Well it’s there, no question about it’s there. And now you’ve seen the stuff with Sidney Blumenthal and others at the top of the FBI, apparently, stuff is going into the State Department that had no business being there. And I think they said it and I think it goes right to the top.
Maria Bartiromo: So they paid for the dossier and actually they wrote part of it, the Clintons. They even wrote part of it.
Ed Rollins: It was the opposition research of the Democratic National Committee and her campaign and I think the idea for the FBI and the State Department to pick it up and run with it while investigating shows that they clearly were… the ball was tipped against Trump and clearly in her favor…
Maria Bartiromo: Can anyone explain Jeff Sessions?
Ed Rollins: No, I think he’s just missing in action. I think he basically is a job he always wanted and he doesn’t want to function. And I think the reality is the person who just resigned, the number three position is just a very important position and better be a Trump loyalist…
Maria Bartiromo: We’re going to hear a lot more about Bruce Ohr. Bruce Ohr Was the number three Department of Justice official. His wife worked for Fusion GPS who put together the dossier. Nobody at the Department of Justice knew that Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS, I mean this is a joke.
Ed Rollins: Well, you know, it’s kind of high-level positions and I had the privilege of serving on some of them. You have to have a core of your own beliefs and you have to basically say I think there’s a conflict of interest here, I think I’ll step aside. Unfortunately, the only person who stepped aside is Jeff Sessions who should be fully engaged. He has no — he has reason not be fully engaged today as the Attorney General and he is. But these other — these other people who have been active — did have conflicts and they weren’t there.
