In an with The Hill’s new TV show set to air Thursday morning, Sessions also made clear that he is open to firing more employees if the Justice Department inspector general’s soon-to-be-released report warrants it.

“It was the right thing to do. The facts were pretty clear on it. He made a big mistake and he testified only a few weeks before that termination that he would do it again (announce reopening the Clinton probe) if he had the opportunity. So we felt like there was a serious breach of discipline within the department if we allowed him to continue.”
