“Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations.”
“I have appointed a person outside of Washington — many years at the Department of Justice — to look at all of the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we are conducting that investigation.”
Sessions said the inspector general he appointed is looking into FISA abuse allegations, but admitted his IG is not very strong. However, he did point out the IG has “almost 500 employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors.” (Video Below)
