House Democrats Call for Hearings Into Sessions' Firing

They claim Sessions' firing was an effort by President Donald Trump to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.


House Democrats Call for Hearings Into Sessions' Firing

Some congressional Democrats  are demanding action on President Donald Trump's firing of  Attorney General Jeff Sessions  on Wednesday.  In a letter  to the House Judiciary Committee chair, the panel's Democrats are calling for emergency hearings to look into the move.

They claim it was an attempt by the president to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference in 2016.  In addition to the hearings, the Democrats are asking to pass bipartisan legislation that would protect Mueller and the Russia investigation.  Trump has long been clear about his disapproval of the probe.

And his pick for  acting attorney general , Matthew Whitaker, appears to feel the same way — he said in a 2017 op-ed the investigation was "going too far." A separate letter  from the same group of lawmakers called on Whitaker to recuse himself and keep the Mueller investigation under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's supervision.  So far, the panel's chair hasn't responded to the requests.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
