It is "unthinkable" a person like the whistleblower involved in President Donald Trump's impeachment proceedings can remain anonymous while claiming to have vital information, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's weekend warnings about intimidation.
"Of course that person eventually would have to be made public and, asking for that is not harassment or not kind of threatening a witness, that is for sure," Sessions, who is vying for his old Alabama Senate seat, told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "The allegations were not borne out when the evidence came out. That happened throughout the Russia collusion matter, and it looks like it is happening again."
Further, Sessions, who Trump pushed out of the White House after he had recused himself from the Russia investigation, said he does not believe the claims against the president are "close to impeachment," but instead could be handled through congressional oversight if needed.
Sessions also said he feels "good" about his reception in Alabama, even after Trump's fierce criticism about him on the Russia matter.
"I've been around the state and done a lot of interviews and talked to a lot of people," said Sessions, who remains a strong Trump supporter. "I think the spirit is good."
Sessions said he does not know if Trump will campaign for him, although he would like him to.
"There is going to be a lot of important races around the country," Sessions said. "I hope ours is moving in the right direction. It may not need help. But I would certainly be glad to have it. I would welcome it. I know the president would be pleased with my support for his agenda in the Senate when elected."
