Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he won't immediately appoint a new special counsel to investigate a number of Republican grievances involving the Justice Department, despite mounting pressure from members of his own party.
"To justify such an appointment, the Attorney General would need to conclude that 'the public interest would be served by removing a large degree of responsibility for the matter from the Department of Justice", Sessions wrote. The inspector general, some think that our inspector general is not very strong; but he has nearly 500, employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors; and they are looking at the FISA process.
Horowitz will be wading into a political minefield, as the warrant to surveil Page and the former British intelligence officer who provided information to aid that effort have become significant friction points in the partisan squabbling over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.
A Justice Department spokesman said Huber first began investigating various claims in the fall of 2017.
"It is a shame that the inspector general has to devote resources to investigate a conspiracy theory as fact-free, openly political, and thoroughly debunked as the president's so-called 'FISA abuse, '" said New York Rep. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.

According to Sessions, Huber will conduct his investigation from outside Washington D.C. and in cooperation with Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen.
Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a statement they were "encouraged" by the designation of Huber.
Many Republicans were hoping a second special counsel would be appointed to investigate the FBI's handling of the surveillance of Carter Page.
But Mr. Trump didn't accept it, named him interim attorney for Utah, and included him in a list of USA attorney appointees in June.
Before becoming Utah's top federal prosecutor, Huber clocked in 13 years as an assistant United States attorney with experience handling violent crime and national security cases, according to his official biography. We think it is important that Mr. Huber report directly to the Attorney General since the Attorney General, as the head of the Justice Department, reserves the right to appoint a special counsel in the future.
