Gingrich: Outside of Russian Piece, Sessions Is Taking Control of a Lot of the Trump Agenda

‘He’s moving the Justice Department towards the exact kind of things that President Trump wants’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
HANNITY: "There's also the attorney general. I know the president was frustrated with recusal. Is it possible we don't know what the attorney general is doing because he's keeping it private?"
GINGRICH: "I think the attorney general is doing a lot. And in areas that don't involve Russia, he's moving the Justice Department towards the exact kind of things that President Trump wants. They've been very aggressive in rounding up criminals from MS-13. The early stages of a real fight over sanctuary cities. And he's rocking some of the cities pretty decisively. He has taken some very strong positions on protecting Americans both from overseas and at home. In a lot of ways it's unfortunate that the president decided to go after the attorney general so aggressively in public. Because I think Jeff Sessions is doing a very good job. If you talk to somebody you respect a great deal like former attorney general's, they will tell you they are very impressed with the degree to which outside of the Russian piece Jeff Sessions is taking control."
