AG Sessions press conferenceA constitutional attorney insists that it is high time for United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special prosecutor to investigate the Obama Justice Department scandals.

Sessions has once again come under fire by his own boss, President Donald Trump, for his decision to allow the inspector general's office to investigate allegations of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) abuses of the FISA court in obtaining warrants to spy on a Trump campaign official.

The president believes that attorneys in the Justice Department should handle the investigation.

Christian Civil Rights Watch Co-founder and Chief Counsel Matt Barber agrees with Trump that Sessions has gone about the wrong way of handling the controversial matter.

"I think that it is high time now for a second special prosecutor to be appointed so there can be a completely independent investigation into these matters that would run concurrent with the IG's investigation," the Barber expressed.

The legal expert also maintained that it remains to be seen how long Sessions will be Attorney General of the United States.

"From his perspective, I can imagine that he doesn't particularly appreciate the president coming down so hard on him constantly,” Barber conceded regarding Sessions’ objection to Trump’s criticism.

Yet the conservative attorney still sides with the president on the latest spat.

“By the same token, I tend to agree with President Trump,” Barber insisted. “I would like to see Jeff Sessions be more aggressive. It may not be his personality, and it may just be time for Jeff Sessions to step down."
