Attorney General Jeff Sessions just got some bad news when top conservative radio host Mark Levin called for him to step down after the FBI raided the office of Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.
“The buck stops on the attorney general’s desk, even if he recused himself, as he did, on the Russia matter, this is not the Russia matter,” Levin said, according to Western Journalism. “The entire department is out of control now.”
“It’s time for the attorney general to step aside and for the president of the United States — he can make a recess appointment — not to put in a body or anything like that,” Levin said, adding that his comments will probably destroy a 30 year friendship with Sessions. “I say it with the gravest regret, I really do, because I know what it means personally but I can’t — I can’t ignore what I’m seeing and what’s going on here.”
Levin added that Trump does not deserve the treatment he has gotten from the Department of Justice since taking office, because, “He didn’t do anything.”
He compared the situation Trump is in with the lack of leadership at the DOJ to the challenge Abraham Lincoln had finding the right person to lead the Union Army during the Civil War.
“When Lincoln was president, he had trouble finding a good general,” the conservative commentator stated. “He went through a whole bunch of them, but they wouldn’t fight or they were incompetent or they were too slow. They were too late ‘til he found Grant.”
Levin also called for the removal of special counsel Robert Mueller, who he said is damaging the presidency.
“He’s doing more damage to the Constitution than the Russians, and the Chinese and the Iranians and the North Koreans combined,” the radio personality stated. “There is no justification anymore for his existence.”
