Chaffetz: 'I Think It's Time for the Attorney General to Go'”

"He's absent from this".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become an ineffective Republican establishment rhino, it is time for him to go.

Earlier this month, a tidal wave swept over the Justice Department, the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation when reports surfaced that two FBI officials formerly on his team had exchanged a series of texts trashing then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. "Because you need leadership there, some deep systemic problems there". Sessions earlier on Friday discussed the DOJ's crime-fighting efforts at a news conference in Washington.

The bureau has come under attack in recent days from President Trump, who said the FBI's reputation is "in tatters", and Republican lawmakers who have questioned the degree to which alleged anti-Trump bias on the part of a senior official may have crept into recent investigations. "We will not hide and be excessively defensive", Mr. Sessions said. "So we want to be open to the public and we're going to go as far as we can to do that". "But I got to tell you, sometimes things that appear to be bad in the press have more innocent explanations".

Sessions on Friday said some violent crimes, such as rape, are on the rise, and emphasized his Justice Department's work to fight them.

President Trump's attorneys this week called for a second special counsel to investigate the connections between the Justice Department and the firm, Fusion GPS, after it was reported that the wife of a demoted Justice Department official once worked for it. That probe was looking into how former FBI director James Comey and current Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe handled Clinton's private email server investigation, as well as leaks from the FBI and Justice.

A sampling of texts between agent Peter Strzok and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page was released to Congress and the media earlier this week.

However, the existence of the messages was only revealed after they were made available to the media this week.

Sessions job status has remained a hot topic of discussion throughout Trump's first year in office.
