In a Washington Examiner op-ed published this morning, two conservative lawmakers thought it best that Jeff Sessions resign, saying, "It's time for Jeff Sessions to go."
This comes on the same day that Republican Senator Cory Gardner "torches Sessions over pot reversal."
But back to the matter at hand…According to CNN:
Mark Meadows, Freedom Caucus chair, and Jim Jordan, a member who sits on the oversight and judiciary committees in the US House of Representatives, wrote the op-ed for the Washington Examiner, and criticized Sessions' handling of the department's investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
"Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the Russia investigation, but it would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world," they wrote. "It is time for Sessions to start managing in a spirit of transparency to bring all of this improper behavior to light and stop further violations."
The Republican congressmen charged that "if Sessions can't address this issue immediately, then we have one final question needing an answer: When is it time for a new attorney general? Sadly, it seems the answer is now."
