And now momentum only growing. Freedom Caucus leaders, Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), calling for Sessions to go now citing Justice Department leaks and conflicts, adding quote: "It would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world."
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) last week said quote: "it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves" despite the deal made last night by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) with the DOJ over access to documents and witnesses pertinent to the anti-Trump dossier.
Sessions hasn't been entirely at rest an ally of Sessions today telling the daily beast that the Justice Department is taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton's private email server.
And the attorney general late last month directed Justice Department officials to look into the FBI's Uranium One investigation.

The American public deserves a full time, full throated attorney general working for them and their president.
