    Laura Ingraham ^ | Self / Vanity
    Jeff Sessions was in Laura Ingraham’s show tonight. Ingraham was very pointed. She asked him about the IG today, Comey, and the FBi Investigation of Trump’s Campaign. She asked him directly twice, wasn’t this essentially Entrapment of his campaign people? Sessions looked like he was going to cry. He then said, feeling the pressure, I’ll answer you like this, we need to find out what happened. WHAT? Yeah, his best answer, 3 years later, after actually being pressed, was - we need to find out what happened. Wow.

    Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly said that he discussed the firing of former FBI Director James Comey with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in late 2016 or early 2017, according to a new batch of documents released in relation to former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into election interference. The documents, released due to a CNN and BuzzFeed lawsuit, totaled 295 pages of witness memoranda and notes from FBI interviews that were part of the special counsel's probe. President Trump fired Comey in 2017, saying that he was acting on recommendations from Sessions and Rosenstein. Mueller's probe began...

    Jeff Sessions’ path to regaining a place in the U.S. Senate may have gotten a little bit easier. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill decided to end his own run for Senate yesterday specifically citing the ex-Attorney General’s entry into the race in his campaign suspension announcement on Facebook. With the announcement by Senator Jeff Sessions on November 7th, the dynamics of this election have changed dramatically. When I entered the race on June 25th, I, along with my family and closest supporters, saw a path to victory. We met our initial goals and had six months of successful...

    George Papadopoulos A junior member of the Trump foreign policy advisory team in 2016, George Papadopoulos was approached by FBI agents in Chicago, where he lived with his mother after the election while waiting for what he hoped would be an offer to join the new administration. The agents said they just wanted to talk to him about contacts he’d made with people in London during the campaign. He spoke to them without a lawyer or the benefit of notes, emails or a calendar to refresh his recollection — a decision he would later regret. One of the interviews was...

    In a Monday interview with “Fox & Friends,” former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to bring the impeachment inquiry to a “conclusion.” Sessions, a candidate for his old U.S. Senate seat in Alabama, said the impeachment probe is “not well-founded,” adding Pelosi is “wrong” to threaten President Donald Trump if he criticizes the Ukraine whistleblower’s identity remaining a secret.

    Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the case Wednesday for President Trump to support his second run for to represent Alabama in the Senate, saying that if he elected he would support the president aggressively. "He didn't have a better supporter in the United States Senate than when I was there. I was his first supporter in the United States Senate," Sessions said on "The Ingraham Angle." "And if I go back to the United States Senate, he won't have a more aggressive, determined supporter when I get back." Sessions told Ingraham he will "work for" Trump's endorsement and that...

He spoke at Northwestern on Nov. 5 amid heavy protests. The editors at the paper from well-known journalism school specifically noted the photos taken at the event in their apology, noting that some students had found...

    Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he warned Sessions during a recent conversation about his potential candidacy that he needed to make up with Trump. "He is a friend of mine. I'll be doing everything I can to encourage him," Cornyn said. "The problem, as I pointed out to him, is, 'I think your life is going to be very difficult unless you work out some sort of reconciliation with the president.'

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce he’s running for his old Senate seat in Alabama. Sessions is expected to make the announcement on Thursday. His decision to run was confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday by two Republicans with direct knowledge of his plans. They were not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Sessions long held the seat he will now pursue but stepped down to serve as President Donald Trump’s first attorney general. He was ousted after enduring public mocking from Trump for recusing himself from special counsel Robert...

    It will be another four and a half months before Republican voters in Alabama select a GOP nominee to face incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Nov. 3, 2020 general election. However, there could be a familiar face among the list of candidates on the ballot. In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018....

    About a week out from the all-important GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Alabama vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Washington, DC, establishment candidate is slumping as two pro-President Trump conservatives surge. A new poll provided exclusively to Breitbart News by JMC Analytics, a Louisiana-based polling firm, shows Luther Strange tapering off in the polls as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) surges behind him and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore remains steady in first place. The poll shows Moore at 30 percent, Strange at 22 percent, and Brooks at 19 percent. Others combine for a total...

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is offering to withdraw from Alabama's special Senate election to make way for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take the Republican nomination for his former seat - if the other GOP contenders vow to do the same. Brooks's proposition comes as President Trump ratchets up criticism of his attorney general, signaling a potential push by the White House to oust Sessions from the Justice Department.

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” President Donald Trump said given another chance he would not appoint former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) as attorney general. Host Chuck Todd asked, “If you could have one do-over as president, what would it be?” Trump replied, “It would be personnel.” He continued, “I would say if I had one do-over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. That would be my one.” Sessions’ recusal in the 2016 Russian interference probe led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.
