Nunes to hold AG Sessions in contempt of Congress?
Without knowing the details, it's hard to judge which side is right here. But it's unusual for Congress to hold an AG in contempt, and even more so when Congress is controlled by the same party as the executive.
I don't see Sessions as being deliberately holding things back. It seems more likely to me that he isn't the decision maker. The contempt threat may shock him awake and force him to take charge of the department he supposedly runs, if he's capable of that. If he's not -- if the recusal means his subordinates will simply refuse to obey him in this matter and related matters -- then maybe he needs to go in favor of someone who can effectively act as Attorney General.
The thing Nunes is really watching is the clock. The midterms are coming up fast, and if FBI and DOJ deep state operatives can stall until then and the Democrats take the House, there will be a lot less pressure to comply.
The facts need to come out sooner rather than later.
