Jeff Sessions thinks the United States Senate should investigate the FBI for its handling of the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server, specifically the way the bureau granted Cheryl Mills immunity and appeared to destroy evidence pertinent to the investigation.
According to Breitbart, the Alabama senator told radio host Howie Carr on Thursday that though he “[loves] the FBI,” he was also a “US attorney and an assistant US attorney before that, and [he has] been through a lot of these issues.”
“This is scary to me,” Sessions added. “I tried not to be critical of Comey at first.”
The Donald Trump supporter argued that Mills — who served as both Hillary Clinton’s State Department chief of staff and White House counsel to former President Bill Clinton — “should not be treated as a legitimate lawyer” because she “surely had a conflict of interest.”
“I don’t see how it is possible for someone so involved in a case that they refuse to provide testimony and information without a grant of immunity.”
“I really don’t see how Congress can issue a subpoena for records and they then destroy those records,” Sessions wondered aloud. “I am telling you that every business knows that if they get a subpoena for business records, and they destroy those records, they are subject to criminal prosecution and will be prosecuted.”
“That’s a high prosecution case.”
