Over the past few days, White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been exposed as an anti-Donald Trump witch hunt as multiple members of his team have been exposed as being Democrat operatives who have a bias against the president. That’s why it came as a surprise when Attorney General Jeff Sessions just turned on Trump by defending one of the disgraced investigators.
The Gateway Pundit reported that it was just revealed that FBI agent Peter Strzok, one of Mueller’s top investigators, was fired from the probe after it was revealed that he had exchanged numerous anti-Trump texts with his mistress Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also involved in the investigation. After learning this, Trump’s lawyers called for a second special counsel to be appointed to investigate the Department of Justice. Sessions, however, balked at this.
During a press conference on Friday, Sessions said that while he’s concerned about recent allegations of bias within the FBI, “sometimes things that might appear to be bad in the press have more innocent explanations, so fairness and justice should also be provided to our personnel.”
This came a week after Sessions responded to the pressure to appoint a special counsel.
“I’ve put a Senior Attorney, with the resources he may need, to review cases in our office and make a recommendation to me, if things aren’t being pursued that need to be pursued, if cases may need more resources to complete in a proper manner, and to recommend to me if the standards for a special counsel are met,” he said.
Not only did Sessions blatantly betray Trump, his Justice Department also protected special counsel Robert Mueller from scrutiny surrounding his ethics waiver. This all caused former Congressman Jason Chaffetz to call for Sessions to resign on Saturday.
“It pains me to say this a little bit [but] I don’t think the attorney general is up to the job he’s doing,” he said.

Rep Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) went on Fox News on Wednesday to discuss the need for a second special counsel.
“Maybe we need to have a Special Prosecutor to investigate the investigators,” Meadows said. “And we’re here to tell you tonight, not only do we have task force that is being set up under Chairman Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte that includes Jim Jordan, myself, John Radcliffe, Jim Buck, we’re working with Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis to get to the bottom of it. But the American people have had enough… The time is now for Jeff Sessions to do his job. And if he doesn’t do his job he needs to step aside and let somebody else do it.”
