How much sway does Fox News have over the Justice Department?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering whether to investigate President Donald Trump’s political enemies, as the president has repeatedly and publicly demanded, the former senator from Alabama told lawmakers this morning at a congressional hearing.

“I've directed senior federal prosecutors to make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be open, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources and whether any matters under consideration may merit the appointment of a special counsel,” Sessions testified before the House Judiciary Committee this morning.

According to a letter the Justice Department sent the committee yesterday, the issues the prosecutors are examining include “the sale of Uranium One” and “alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation.”

“I don't want to be Chicken Little, but, you know what, this is what happens in authoritarian countries like Turkey and Russia, that when a party takes power, they start criminally investigating their opponents,” CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin warned this morning. Referencing the letter’s mention of Uranium One, he added, “This is a question about whether Fox News runs the Justice Department.”
