Darrell Issa: If Sessions Won’t Turn over the Documents Then He Needs To Be Replaced

‘Jeff Sessions has to step up to the plate and do his job’


ISSA: "Well I think the president has an obligation to make it clear and I think he’s done that that Jeff Sessions has to step up to the plate and do his job. He’s ordered open and transparent communication, in other words give Congress the documents they’re asking for in the most unredacted way possible , and what he’s done is allowed the bureaucrats to slow walk us and give us documents that look like a black cow eating a licorice at midnight they’re just all black, that’s just unacceptable so when the president rightfully so says that if Jeff Sessions won’t do it then the president will in fact use this authority to clear the classified request and the attorney/client privilege and the presidential perogatives out of the way and make it available and this is something that needs to be done. Of course you need to make sure that if somebody’s life is at risk that you protect them but after that, the rest of it really is the president saying he wants to be open and transparent and every one of his cabinet officers needs to heed that and provide that kind of information quickly."
