Mark Meadows: Sessions' Testimony Evidence Special Counsel on Clinton Needed

After watching Attorney General Jeff Sessions' testimony earlier this week, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Thursday he's more convinced now that a special counsel is needed to investigate Hillary Clinton and several of her actions, including involvement in the Uranium One deal and in a salacious dossier about President Donald Trump.

"I watched several hours of that testimony," the North Carolina GOP representative told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "At one point, he acted like he was qualified to investigate this. At another, he said he wasn't."

Meadows added that he believes "we ought to take Hillary Clinton's own words. She said it's all about the rule of law and, indeed it is. So a special prosecutor would make sure they don't have a conflict of interest."

Having an independent counsel, he said, would make sure there were answers.

"Some of the evidence would suggest that the FBI was actually involved in this dossier," said Meadows. "I think the American people deserve answers."

Robert Mueller, who is special counsel investigating Russia's activities during the election, could not investigate Clinton's activities, noted show co-host Brian Kilmeade, as he was FBI director at the time, and Sessions couldn't do the probe, as he had been involved in Trump's election campaign.

"You are spot on," said Meadows. "You know that the Democrats will cry foul the minute that Jeff Sessions gets involved, if he is directing anything. That's why we need a special counsel."

Having an independent counsel, said Meadows, would allow some answers.

"This dossier that Fusion GPS did, actually we know that Hillary Clinton and the DNC [Democratic National Committee] hired a firm, Perkins Coie, actually hired them to do the dossier," he said.

"There is other disturbing information that would suggest that the Obama campaign, the same month that she did that, paid another $900,000 to the same law firm. And then going further, the FBI looked at possibly paying the gentleman who wrote the dossier. Didn't end up paying him but reimbursed him."

When all those things come together, Meadows said, "the American people need an answer, and it is about the rule of law and making sure we get to the bottom of it . . . Lady Justice has a blindfold. Hillary Clinton shouldn't be above the law. We need to get to the bottom of it and we intend to do that."
