He doesn’t seem to be calling the person a Special Counsel, but the person is outside the employ of the DOJ. And we should know who this person is.
Via Daily Caller:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News’ Shannon Bream Wednesday that he “will consider” naming a second special counsel to probe the FBI and Justice Department’s investigations into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
“Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations,” Sessions told Bream in an interview that ran late Wednesday night. “I have appointed a person outside of Washington — many years at the Department of Justice — to look at all of the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we are conducting that investigation.” (RELATED: Goodlatte, Gowdy Formally Call For Second Special Counsel)
He also stated he is “well aware that we have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of the FISA process.”
