Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who is poised to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee because of Democrats’ performance in the midterms, said Wednesday that it is clear that Attorney General Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation because he failed to end special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Schiff added in a statement that Sessions’ ouster places Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference in “new and immediate peril.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is abundantly clear that Sessions was forced out for following the advice of ethics lawyers at the Department of Justice and recusing himself from the Russia probe, and for failing to bring about an end to an investigation that has produced multiple indictments and convictions and may implicate the President or others around him,” Schiff, who has been the ranking Democratic member on the Intelligence Committee, said.
