Report: Clinton enemy Louis Freeh floated as possible Jeff Sessions replacement

President Trump appears to have reached his breaking point with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

After the president published a series of furious tweets this week, the AG’s position seems more precarious than ever. Now some are speculating former FBI director Louis Freeh might be next in line if Sessions is replaced as the AG.

Time Has Come

The straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back was the Justice Department’s charges being brought against two GOP congressman.

While the congressmen are not named, it is likely he is referring to Chris Collins and Duncan Hunter.

Both congressmen have expressed their innocence and plan on fighting the charges. Hunter is continuing his campaign, but Collins withdrew not long after the indictments came down.

Freeh a possibility?

With Trump’s ire at an all-time high, could Louis Freeh be a candidate for replacing Sessions? As reported by True Pundit, White House insiders have said he’s being considered.

Freeh, who served as the FBI director during the Clinton era and now runs a private global consulting firm, had an infamously rocky relationship with the former president and even penned a book discussing his investigations into Clinton, along with other issues. From the description of his book, “My FBI: Bringing Down the Mafia, Investigating Bill Clinton, and Fighting the War on Terror”: 

“Bill Clinton called Freeh a “law enforcement legend” when he nominated him as the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director. The good feelings would not last. Going toe-to-toe with his boss during the scandal-plagued ‘90s, Freeh fought hard to defend his agency from political interference and to protect America from the growing threat of international terrorism. When Clinton later called that appointment the worst one he had made as president, Freeh considered it ‘a badge of honor.'”

In his book, Freeh wrote scathingly of Clinton, “The problem was with Bill Clinton, the scandals and rumored scandals, the incubating ones and the dying ones never ended. Whatever moral compass the president was consulting was leading him in the wrong direction. His closets were full of skeletons just waiting to burst out.”

While Sessions has hesitated to make a move against Hillary Clinton, Freeh just might be more open to it.

This could also fix what many deem to be broken leadership within the Justice Department itself.

As the former director of the FBI, Freeh knows how these agencies are supposed to work.

We are still dealing with the remnants of James Comey, but Freeh could be just the man that would be willing to wipe the slate clean and start over again from scratch — if Sessions doesn’t make it.
