Justice Department to open investigation into alleged FIFA abuses, it’s about time the Obama administration and Hillary were on hot seat
FISA abuses will finally be investigated by the Justice Department according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions said late Tuesday the Justice Department will be looking into abuses of the Foreign intelligence Surveillance Act.
President Trump has pressured Sessions for months to look into the abuses by the Obama administration and the campaign of Hillary Clinton. It has been established that the Clinton campaign paid for the Steele dossier, a foreign surveillance memo of made up dirt on the Trump campaign.
“Yes, it will be investigated,” Sessions told reporters at the court that oversees FISA warrants.
Sessions said an investigation it is the “appropriate thing” to do so, and that his department’s inspector general “will take that as one of the matters he’ll deal with.”
The Attorney General told Fox News on Sunday of the investigation and
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday that this move will be supported.
“I think that’s the role of the Department of Justice, and we’re glad that they’re fulfilling that job,” she said.
Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!

President Trump is not happy already with the news tweeting “Why is A>G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the IG an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department? Disgraceful.
It seems like Trump has been fed up with Jeff Sessions for quite some time. Sessions appears to be part of the swamp. Trump may be giving him the benefit of the doubt. But I think the time has come to call Sessions in and say “your fired.”
