Gregg Jarrett: ‘Incompetent’ Sessions should resign, but first take action on Clinton, Comey and Rice


Fox News contributor Gregg Jarrett thinks it’s time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign since he has been “incompetent” in his position since taking office.

“I argue that he has not just been unproductive and ineffectual, he has proven to be incompetent,” Jarrett said on “Hannity” Tuesday. “I hate to say that, I really do because he’s a very fine man.”

Sessions’ tenure has been “notable for a series of failures to act where action is demanded,” the former attorney argued.

“There are plenty of options here but Sessions needs to do the right thing and resign,” Jarrett said.

In a column published Tuesday, Jarrett elaborated on his call for the attorney general to resign, stating Sessions “should never have accepted the position.”

“He deceived President Trump by concealing his intent to recuse himself from the federal investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election,” Jarrett wrote. “Failing to disclose such a material matter to the president was an egregious betrayal.”

This “ethical impropriety” caused President Trump to lose confidence in Sessions, Jarrett argued.

“Sessions appears either incapable or incompetent,” Jarrett continued, laying out example after example of areas that the attorney general has dropped the ball. From not investigating former FBI Director James Comey for possible criminal conduct, to failing to appoint a special counsel in reopening the email server case against Hillary Clinton, the “evidence is compelling” against Sessions.

“Moreover, Sessions has taken no action to investigate the unmasking of Trump aides during intelligence surveillance by the Obama Administration,” Jarrett wrote, noting the mounting evidence that Trump was spied on.

“Transition officials were unmasked, perhaps illegally. And in one case, the unmasking was leaked to the media which is a crime,”he added.  “Yet Sessions is twiddling his thumbs.”

The column concluded with a call for the former GOP senator from Alabama to resign – but not before cleaning up some of the mess he created.

“Jeff Sessions may have been a fine Senator, but he has proven to be a feckless Attorney General. He should resign,” Jarrett wrote.

“But first, Sessions can restore integrity to the Department of Justice and salvage his own tattered reputation by taking aggressive action against Comey, Clinton and Rice,” he concluded. “Then he should quietly bow out.”
