The New York Times on Tuesday published an article titled “Trump Asked Sessions to Retain Control of Russia Inquiry After His Recusal.” The article states that in March shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a recusal  letter, stepping down from handling anything that pertained to the Russian investigation and the Trump campaign, in which Sessions was an early supporter, a surrogate, and later Foreign Adviser, President Trump asked Sessions to regain control of the investigation. The article explains that this meeting is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

On CBS This Morning House Oversight Committee Chairmen Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was asked about the article and if in his mind did President Trump’s request of Sessions appear to be Obstruction of Justice.

Gowdy answers that he views this as President Trump being frustrated that his chief law enforcement officer didn’t express this concern before he was picked to lead the DOJ and that “there are lots of really good lawyers in the country he could have picked someone else.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions March 2nd, 2017, presser in which he recuses himself from handling all matters regarding Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.

On Tuesday Gowdy appeared on Fox News, in the five minute and fifty-five second interview with Martha McCallum, Gowdy explains that the FBI is doing their job, that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has made it clear Trump is not a target of Mueller’s investigation, when they met on the Hill, to discuss whether or not there was a “Spy,” inside Trump’s campaign.
