Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he believes the FBI needs a "fresh start" following FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's decision to step down.
"Well, I have believed it was important to have a fresh start at the FBI, and actually, it was in my letter to the President when I recommended
(former FBI Director James) Comey's removal. I used the words, 'fresh start,' and the FBI director is Chris Wray, a very talented, smart, capable leader," Sessions told
the Washington Examiner on the day McCabe left the bureau. The interview was published on Tuesday.
Sessions also said there has been an "erosion" of public trust in the DOJ, telling the Examiner that the department needs to earn that back "because the heart and soul of the Department of Justice is very good."
