Dems demand documents on Jeff Sessions’ ouster

Top Democrats sent a preservation letter to the White House late Wednesday ordering all documents relating to the ouster of Attorney General Jeff Sessions be kept as evidence in a potential obstruction of justice probe.

The lawmakers, some of whom will become committee chairmen with subpoena powers in the new Congress next year, sent letters to the White House counsel, the FBI, the CIA, the director of national intelligence, the National Security Agency, the IRS, the Treasury Department, and two Justice Department officials.

Mr. Sessions resigned Wednesday at the request of President Trump.

Democrats have said they suspect the move was an attempt to undermine the ongoing special counsel’s investigation into the 2016 election, Russian meddling and Trump campaign figures.
