We the People need an Attorney General BAD!
With much work to be done, the swamp will never be drained with Sessions sitting on the drain plug to protect the swamp rats.
I picture Jeff Sessions sitting in his office all day with a coloring book while Rod Rosenstein is running the Department of Justice.
Devin Nunes has grown weary of Sessions stonewalling congressional investigations and is filing for a contempt of Congress charge against the do-nothing Attorney General.
So, in the future, when our children study the history of the US Department of Justice, Jeff Sessions will be remembered as a contrary, contemptuous, AWOL Attorney General who helped (co-conspired with?) his Trump-hating underlings in their attempt to destroy and depose the President of the United States.
Only one Attorney General in US history has been held in contempt of Congress – Eric Holder, for the same reason, refusing to turn over subpoenaed documents.
Great company you are keeping, Jeff. You should resign before you are fired, which will be the only decent thing you have done as AG, thereby leaving a scrap of goodwill against what will surely be an otherwise dishonorable legacy.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes announced Sunday he’s going to push Congress this week to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress.
This extreme step is a culmination of the frustration the California Republican explained he’s felt in dealing with a Justice Department that had stymied his requests for information, during multiple investigations.
Two weeks ago, Nunes he sent a classified letter to Sessions, which he said was not acknowledged. That was followed by a subpoena last week.
“Then on Thursday we discovered that they are not going to comply with our subpoena,” Nunes said on “Fox and Friends Sunday.”

Asked what he is going to do about it, Nunes said “the only thing left to do is we have to move quickly to hold the attorney general of the United States in contempt and that is what I will press for this week.”
The chairman didn’t disclose what exactly he seeks. He called it “very important” information.
Nunes also said he’s not going to take any “excuse” that relates to concerns about national security. “How many times have we heard this argument throughout this investigation?” he asked.
Nunes also conceded that it’s possible Sessions personally is not yet aware of his subpoena, which he said he will probably take to court to try and enforce it. Nunes also said he’s already spoke to FBI Director Christopher Wray about the matter.
