According to a report by ABC News, now fired Andrew McCabe had previously authorized a criminal probe into Jeff Sessions. Sessions just fired McCabe last week.



Sessions claims that McCabe was terminated for “lack of candor.” Ironically, that’s the same reason why McCabe initiated a probe into Sessions.

Last year, the investigation into Sessions was based on whether he was honest about his contacts with Russia.  Sessions claimed he hadn’t. However, a Washington Post report showed that he discussed campaign matters with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

While a source close to Sessions claims that he didn’t know about McCabe’s probe, a lawyer for Sessions wouldn’t confirm that. This, of course, raises suspicions.

In a statement, Chuck Cooper, who is an attorney for Sessions—insisted the attorney general “is not under investigation for false statements or perjury in his confirmation hearing testimony and related written submissions to Congress.”

Many are now looking for more answers from Sessions and the Trump administration about why McCabe was fired.

Below are some of the reactions on Twitter.
