Fact check: Is Horowitz "already late with reports on Comey etc."?

The office is now examining how investigations were handled at the department and the FBI in advance of the 2016 presidential election, including, notably, the Hillary Clinton email server probe. "He's a good man, he's going through a lot, he's got a lot of challenges", added Shelby, who represented Alabama with Sessions until he became attorney general.


Mueller's team has questioned witnesses in recent months about those discussions and Trump's state of mind in late July and early August of previous year.

"Isn't the I.G.an Obama guy?"

Horowitz was appointed to the inspector general job by President Barack Obama - that much is true. First named a U.S. Attorney under the first President Bush in 1991, he was moved to the DOJ main office under Clinton and remained in office through the first two years of the second Bush administration. He worked as a career official in the U.S. Attorney's office in NY.

The president's latest attack on Sessions came a day after Sessions said that he was referring to Horowitz the allegations of FISA surveillance abuses by the Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes. "But no department is ideal", Sessions said in the statement. Its lawyers are part of the department and, contrary to Trump's claims, can and often do refer matters for prosecution.


Allegations that the Federal Bureau of Investigation used biased evidence emerged in January when the 'Nunes' memo was published by the House Intelligence Committee despite opposition from Democrats and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI argued against the memo's release.

On guns, Sanders said that Trump had intention to apologize to Sen. The basis for Republicans' objection is complex.

He also defended his standing as the department's top official. That appointment was made by Sessions' deputy Rod Rosenstein. Trump tweeted. "Why didn't Obama do something about the meddling?"


Though Trump reportedly harbors anger over Sessions recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation - Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein then appointed special counsel Robert Mueller - the senator said he believes Sessions "had no option other than to recuse himself". Though previous presidents have allowed law enforcement a large degree of independence to keep from influencing their inquiries, Trump has consistently called for investigations into his political rivals and he has criticized Sessions for not being more aggressive.
