WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL ENTERS Q&A PHASE

Chris Wallace: Dems Hoping to Push Out Sessions ‘Might Want to Be Careful What They Ask For’

The revelation that Carter Page — a former campaign advisor to President Donald Trump — testified that he gave Attorney General Jeff Sessions a heads-up before taking a trip to Russia in 2016 carries potentially grave implications for the nation’s top cop. Page’s account directly contradicted the under oath account from Sessions, who denied knowledge of such a trip while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

But Chris Wallace warns that any Democrats thinking about wanting to push Sessions out of office might want to reconsider.

In his traditional Friday appearance on Shepard Smith Reporting, Wallace noted that a new Attorney General might be inclined to get involved in the Russia probe, which Sessions has recused himself from.

“What happens if you get a new Attorney General — and the Democrats can’t blame the president because they are the ones pushing them out — and then this new guy comes and says, ‘Guess what? I’m not recused from Russia,'” Wallace said. “I think the Democrats might want to be careful what they ask for.”

But Wallace did seem to affirm the assessment of NBC’s Chuck Todd and many others in Washington, that Sessions is indeed in some hot water.

“I would think that Carter page aspect of this is… troubling,” Wallace said.
