Gaetz: Sessions May Have ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ With His Captors in the ‘Deep State’

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “step up” and renounce his recusal in the Russia investigation.

“He has said he’s totally unwilling to do that,” Gaetz said on “Outnumbered Overtime” on Monday. “It’s like over at the Department of Justice he’s got Stockholm syndrome. He’s become sympathetic with his captors over there in the deep state.”

Sessions recused himself from the FBI’s Russia probe in March 2017 after acknowledging that he had had previously undisclosed encounters with the Russian ambassador during Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Sessions said it would be improper for him to oversee a probe into a campaign for which he was a vocal and prominent supporter.
