Gregg Jarrett: AG Sessions 'Will Be Fired' After Midterms Due to Carter Page Surveillance
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett said Saturday on Fox & Friends that he believes Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be fired after the midterm elections.
His comments come after a court filing uncovered by Judicial Watch revealed that no FISA court hearings were held regarding warrants to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
Jarrett said Saturday that the Supreme Court should get involved in order to prevent future abuses.
He said that a show cause hearing should be held to determine why Justice Department and FBI officials involved shouldn't be held in contempt.

The Justice Department released documents in July that were used by the government to justify the FISA surveillance warrant against Page.
In the warrant application, the FBI said it believed Page was "collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government."
As Fox News previously reported:
Though heavily redacted, the documents show that the infamous and unverified Steele Dossier was a major component of the 2016 surveillance warrant. ... The visible sections of the released FISA documents do not indicate the dossier was ever verified. Instead, the FBI claimed that [Christopher] Steele was “reliable” based on his previous work.
Jarrett added that a special master should be appointed to preside over the show cause hearing.
"Somebody who's neutral and fair, who can objectively look at the facts," he said.
He said that he believes President Trump will declassify the documents that Congress is seeking.
"And then I think after the election, [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions will be fired." said Jarrett. "I would select somebody like John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) to replace him."
