    The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA), a political fundraising group, touts the AGs as “the first line of defense” against Trump’s agenda. “The Trump administration has trouble understanding the rule of law and that’s the reason Democratic attorneys general are filing lawsuits and winning them,” Sean Rankin, DAGA’s executive director, told Fox News.

    A Democratic candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint Thursday during a campaign photoshoot in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.

    Two prominent conservative lawmakers say Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop leaks to the media about the Russia probe or step down as attorney general. Sessions “has recused himself from the Russia investigation, but it would appear he has no control at all of the premier law enforcement agency in the world,” Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, write in an op-ed published Thursday by the Washington Examiner. “It is time for Sessions to start managing [the Justice Department] in a spirit of transparency to bring all of this improper behavior to light and stop further violations,”...
  • Sessions uses executive authority to appoint interim U.S. attorneys

    NBC ^ | 3 January, 2017 | Jonathan Dienst and Tracy Connor
    With a deadline looming, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is using executive authority to name 17 interim U.S. attorneys in cities from coast to coast. Seven of the prosecutors have been serving as acting U.S. attorneys since President Donald Trump axed dozens of the lead federal prosecutors in March, but there's a 300-day limit on that status. The other 10 will replace current acting prosecutors, who get bounced back to their old jobs. Trump now has 120 days to submit nominations for the permanent positions to the Senate — or else the federal court in that district will make a temporary...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday warned congressional Republicans not to make any moves to remove special counsel Robert Mueller, saying such an attempt “will not be tolerated.” “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned: any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated,” Holder wrote on Twitter. “These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party,” he said.

    AG Jeff Sessions has been tied up in Mueller-Russia. It's time for a new AG. Former NYPD Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly would be a better A.G. than Jeff Sessions. Sessions should go back home to Alabama and do law there. He has disappointed lots of people. Period. Ray Kelly for A.G. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Kelly

    Holder: Northam Needs Extra Voter Turnout Because ‘Voting Machines Get Lost’ BY: Paul Crookston November 7, 2017 6:15 pm Former attorney general Eric Holder said Democrats should seek to drive up voter turnout on Tuesday in Virginia because sometimes "voting machines get lost." The former Obama administration official told an audience at Rising Mount Zion Baptist Church in Richmond, Va., that democratic voters needed to "off the couch" in large numbers, Politico reports. Holder emphasized the need for higher turnout by saying voting machines are not reliable and that the Virginia gubernatorial race should be a repudiation of President Donald...

    Four years ago, one of China’s largest agricultural importers sent representatives to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., hoping that meetings with elite party officials might yield business opportunities. The company, the Dandong Port Group, was particularly focused on the governors in attendance, according to an interview with Dandong’s general counsel broadcast by Chinese state television. But now, the company’s widening influence is coming under scrutiny by federal prosecutors, who are examining the relationship between Dandong’s wealthy and connected chairman, Wang Wenliang, and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a Democrat who was elected in 2013. A federal law enforcement...

    A secret server is behind the Capitol Police’s decision to ban a former IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the House network. Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation. The secret server was connected...

    If Attorney General Jeff Sessions has his way, National Security Council staffers will undergo lie detector tests to find White House leakers. The Trump administration has been plagued by a series of leaks, ranging from transcripts of calls between President Trump and foreign leaders to reports of palace intrigue from top White House officials. Axios reports: Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told associates he wants to put the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to root out leakers. It’s unclear whether this will ever happen, but Sessions floated the idea to multiple people, as recently as...

    On March 8th, AG Jeff Sessions ordered all 94 federal prosecutors to prioritize violent crime, using the statutory tools at their disposal.  The first two offenses listed by the Attorney General were 18 U.S.C section 922 (firearms offenses including possession and straw purchasing) and 18 U.S.C. section 924(c) (possession of a firearm during and in relation to a violent crime or drug trafficking offense). The United States Attorney's Offices were urged to identify and target the criminals responsible for violent crime in their districts, and to coordinate with the state and local counterparts.  It appears to be having some...

    This is the best tweet by President Trump I have seen in a long time! “So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” He finally did it, because he has had enough just like we have. http://launch.newsinc.com/embed.html?trackingGroup=91212&siteSection=91212_pp&videoId=32719121 From the look on Jeff Sessions’ face,  he does not look too happy.  However, it is high time he did his job for a change.  All he seems to do is to recuse himself. Last week, Trump told reporters he would not have appointed Sessions, a foreign policy adviser to...

    Attorney General Pam Bondi on Monday was ordered to file a written response to a lawsuit claiming she forces businesses to donate millions of dollars to unregistered charities as part of settlements in consumer protection cases. Circuit Judge Charles Dodson, sitting in Tallahassee, also granted a request from Orlando entrepreneur John D. Smith to seek “discovery” in the case—that is, to get information from Bondi’s office in preparation for a possible trial. Smith filed a petition for a “writ of quo warranto,” which demand government officials to prove their authority to perform a certain action. He did not attend Monday’s...

    Well, if there’s one candidate who could get the conservative base in the Republican Party to unite, even those who don’t like Donald Trump, it’s former Attorney General Eric Holder. Apparently, the former top law enforcement official is considering a 2020 run against Trump (via The Hill): Former Attorney General Eric Holder is poised to take a more active role in opposing President Trump, telling Yahoo News in an interview published Tuesday that "now is the time to be more visible" — including weighting a 2020 presidential bid. “Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” said Holder, who served...

    President Trump signed an order in January to withdraw funds from cities that did not cooperate with immigration authorities, but that has not stopped some cities from illegally declaring themselves “sanctuary cities.” Do these cities not realize they are essentially hurting Americans by sheltering illegals, who go on to do harm to other Americans. I don’t need to bring up the rape of a 14 year old girl by two illegals in Maryland. Now, this girl’s life has been permanently damanged, and for what? Those two illegal men could care less about civilization. You cannot expect to harbor illegals and...
