  • Trump Is Coddling Sessions And Waiting For Mueller To Impeach Him

    Trump is too busy coddling Sessions and waiting for Mueller to indict him so he can be removed from office. ~ Comment from a Freeper on another thread. I would normally balk at such a statement, but I've recently begun to think there's a method to the President's madness, in that regard. Until now, it hadn't occurred to me that our beloved President might be of such noble character, that he is actually baring his chest to the (very real) knives of the left, and is willing to martyr himself, at least politically, to light a fire under the behinds...
  • Not so fast with the Awan "cover up". There's loopholes for the side of justice.

    OK, I think this is a genius move by Jeff Sessions. The supposed DOJ Awan case 'cover up' has upset many. But when you read the fine print, the plea only applies to DC (thread at link).

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) revealed a plea deal Tuesday to Imran Awan — former IT staffer for top House Democrats — which states the federal government found “no evidence” that Awan “violated federal law with respect to House computer systems.” The plea deal states: The Government has uncovered no evidence that your client violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems. Particularly, the Government has found no evidence that your client illegally removed House data from the House network or from House Members’ offices, stole the House Democratic Caucus Server, stole or destroyed House information technology equipment,...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions cracked a joke about the administration’s immigration chaos, and was greeted with laughs at the idea of separated families. Sessions spoke Tuesday to a crowd at the conservative-leaning conservative Criminal Justice Legal Foundation, and accused critics of his “zero tolerance” immigration policy of hypocrisy. “These same people live in gated communities, many of them, and are featured at events where you have to have an ID to even come in to hear em speak. They like a little security around themselves,” he said. “If you try to scale the fence they’d be even too happy to...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions disclosed Thursday that FBI agent Peter Strzok no longer has his security clearance. "Mr. Strzok as I understand has lost his security clearance," Sessions stated during a radio interview on "The Howie Carr Show." The Hill has reached out to the Justice Department for further comment. Sessions's remark comes after Strzok's attorney confirmed on Tuesday that the counterintelligence agent was escorted from the FBI building amid an internal review of his conduct. Strzok has been at the center of ire on the right over private text messages he exchanged with then-FBI attorney Lisa Page that blasted...

    More than 600 members of the United Methodist Church signed on to a letter Monday condemning Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant parents and children at the U.S. border. In the letter, the group of churchgoers, including clergy and church leadership, accuse Sessions of child abuse, immorality, racial discrimination and dissemination of doctrines contrary to the standards of the doctrine of the United Methodist Church. They note in the letter that Sessions is a member of Ashland Place United Methodist Church, in Mobile, Ala.

    Want to accuse the Trump admin of being a bunch of Nazis? All you need is a tweet by a Boston Globe reporter passing along what “a public defender in McAllen [TX] says.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: “I know that children are being marched away to showers . . . being told they are, just like the Nazis said they were taking people to showers and then they never came back.” Scarborough was referring to the handling of children brought into the country by people accused of illegal immigration. So, how does Scarborough “know” that children are...

    Now that Trump has solved Northeast Asia's problems, maybe he can get to a problem in our country -- in fact, within 10 miles of the White House. For some reason, The Washington Post recently ran an article on something important -- the MS-13 gang presence at a public school on the outskirts of our nation's capital, William Wirt Middle School in Prince George's County, Maryland. The media's usual approach to the diversity being inflicted on us is: Don't report this! It's better if no one knows. Maybe the left has decided it's too late to do anything about the...

    The Department of Justice today announced the arrest of more than 2,300 suspected online child sex offenders during a three-month, nationwide, operation conducted by Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task forces.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would release a decision Monday aimed at limiting the reasons why people can claim asylum in the United States. In a speech before immigration judges in Virginia, Sessions said the valid reasons for asylum have been stretched under the Immigration and Nationality Act. He said his decision is aimed at making sure asylum is granted only in cases outlined under U.S. law. "Under the INA, asylum is available for those who leave their home country because of persecution or fear on account of race, religion, nationality or membership in a particular social group or...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is making an aggressive new move to crack down on illegal immigration, announcing Monday that the Trump administration will no longer accept asylum claims based on fear of domestic violence, gang violence or other “personal crime.” “Our nation’s immigration laws provide for asylum to be granted to individuals who have been persecuted, or who have a well-founded fear of persecution, on account of their membership in a ‘particular social group,’ but most victims of personal crimes do not fit this definition — no matter how vile and reprehensible the crime perpetrated against them," a Justice Department...

    Report on Russia noted numerous issues but hidden in Issue #27 is an obscure piece of information that former Senator and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions oversaw the small team of five foreign policy experts for the Trump campaign. Included in this small group were Carter Page and George Papadopoulos. According to the House Intel report, the future President was under pressure to put together a foreign policy team in March of 2016. A number of seasoned Republican foreign policy experts were unwilling to jump on the Trump train. Because of this pressure from the press to show he had...

    Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has told Trump administration staffers that she would be interested in taking over as attorney general from Jeff Sessions, Politico reported Thursday. Pirro, who has been a vocal supporter of President Trump since his campaign, has repeatedly told Trump aides since the election that she would like to be the attorney general, according to the report. The Fox News host has frequently used her show to target Sessions, and recently described him as “the most dangerous man in America.” However, aides told Politico that Trump is not seriously considering Pirro for the job. He...

    The Department of Justice reneged on a commitment to provide access to documents they promised to congressional lawmakers by Thursday morning. Instead, DOJ issued a press release after midnight suggesting they will only meet with a group of select lawmakers to discuss the matter on the same day the North Korea summit opens in Singapore, according to numerous sources and a DOJ statement. Moreover, the Justice Department also issued new stipulations for briefing congressional members and limited the meeting with only the Gang of Eight, which is comprised of eight leaders within Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters.

    President Trump on Wednesday said he regrets his decision to pick Jeff Sessions as attorney general, the latest sign of his growing anger over the Russia investigation. Citing Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who said earlier on CBS that Trump “could have picked somebody else” to lead the Justice Department, the president responded, “I wish I did!” Gowdy was asked whether Trump obstructed justice when he reportedly asked Sessions early last year to reverse his decision to rescue himself from the Russia probe, an interaction reported Tuesday by The New York Times. In comments later quoted by Trump, Gowdy said Trump...

    WASHINGTON — By the time Attorney General Jeff Sessions arrived at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort for dinner one Saturday evening in March 2017, he had been receiving the presidential silent treatment for two days. Mr. Sessions had flown to Florida because Mr. Trump was refusing to take his calls about a pressing decision on his travel ban. When they met, Mr. Trump was ready to talk — but not about the travel ban. His grievance was with Mr. Sessions: The president objected to his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. Mr. Trump, who had told aides that he...
