WASHINGTON - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday defended his decision not to appoint a second special prosecutor to investigate Republicans concerns about the FBI by noting that Special Counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe had already taken on a life of its own.

REUTERS/Yuri Gripas Speaking to a U.S. House appropriations panel during a routine budget hearing, Sessions told lawmakers that the Justice Department needed to be disciplined and stay within our classical procedure and rules before rushing to hire more special counsels.
I do not think we need to willy-nilly appoint special counsels, he said, after listening to a laundry list of frustrations aired by West Virginia Republican Congressman Evan Jenkins.
As we can see, it can really take on a life of its own.

In before the Sessions bashers!
This man is useless as Attorney General. Absolutely useless.
There needs to be a Special Prosecutor dedicated to bringing down the Clinton Crime Family.
Sessions bashers = Trump
Trump expressed his disappointment in the Justice Department during a Fox News interview in which he said Comey is guilty of crimes that could be uncovered if we had a Justice Department that was doing their job.
When asked why he doesnt push the department to do more, Trump say hes staying out for now.
Because of the fact that they have this witch hunt going on with people in the Justice Department that shouldnt be there, they have a witch hunt against the president of the United States going on, Ive taken the position, and I dont have to take this position and maybe Ill change, that I will not be involved with the Justice Department, he said. I will wait until this is over. Its a total, its all lies and its a horrible thing that is going on, a horrible thing.
Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who heads the department, for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Trump has previously called on the department to target leakers, but no one has been prosecuted for leaks critical of the Trump administration.
So very disappointed in my Justice Department, Trump said. Because of the fact it is going on, and I think you will understand this, I have decided I wont be involved. I may change my mind at some point because what is going on is a disgrace. It is an absolute disgrace. By the way only collusion is with Democrats and Russians.
He has been a $(%*% disaster.
what? The Keebler Elf finally woke up and said something?
In other words, he thinks Mueller's "Hanging Council" is a lot of cr**.
Well then shut it down, you feckless wussy. Some Southern man he turned out to be.
..”Mueller probe has taken on ‘life of its own’...
This just more 454D underwater ping pong, r-right?
He is beyond useless and he is taking up space. As long as he warms the AG chair we can not get a real Attorney General and NO ONE who is guilty will be punished.
I despise him for being just another instrument to take down our country.
Bet he makes some damn good cookies, though!
If you dont see Sessions for what he is at this point, check yourself into the Cult rehab.
The Dems wont ever let him retire.
If they didnt have him, theyd have to create one.
IIRC, Sessions wanted to get rid of 17 attorneys in the justice apartment and Trump said no. Not going against Trump...just saying that Sessions clearly wanted to get rid of those “non political” (cough, cough) appointees.
What are you going to do about it Bozo?
Does it really surprise Sessions, that this hot air balloon of Mueller probes continues to get bigger and create clones of itself? Apparently, he feels helpless to stop it. “I’m only the Attorney General of the United States of America. What am I supposed to do?”
He can’t shut it down.
