Sessions defends firing Comey, warns DOJ report could prompt more terminations

Source: The Hill

On the eve of the release of a potentially explosive new report, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the termination of the FBI’s top two former executives and warned that the forthcoming report on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton probe could result in more people being fired.

In an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new TV show "Rising," set to air Thursday morning, Sessions defended the decision to fire ex-Director James Comey, who he said “made a big mistake” that belied a “serious breach of discipline.”

Sessions also made clear that he is open to firing more employees if the Justice Department inspector general’s soon-to-be-released report warrants it.

“I think it will be a lengthy report and a careful report,” he told "Rising" co-host Buck Sexton. “I think it will help us better fix any problems that we have and reassure the American people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true.”

2. Yes it's a purge to prevent further internal investigations of Trump and minions

This is a cleansing and a sterility and a dogma, all rolled into one

4. "....and reassure the American people....

...that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true.”

Gee, what "concerns" would those be, Mr. Keebler Elf? The "concerns" raised by the Orange Howling Monkey in the White House?

Fucking fascists.

5. Sure thing, Comey was fired because trump thought he shouldn't have announced reopening of Clinton

email investigation just before election. I was going to say they must think we are fools, but close to 50% will believe it or don’t care.
