    Ha ha ha ha ha! Rod Rosenstein was kidding around with the guys about wearing a wire while meeting with the President in order to collect info that could set him up for removal under the 25th Amendment. Hee hee hee.  Just kidding! It was just a joke!You know what? In the real world people get fired for jokes every day. Take this poor bloke, who thought he’d signed out of his Chrysler account and into his personal Twitter account: Not only did poor Scott Bartosiewicz, a social media strategist for New Media Strategies, get fired but Chrysler declined to...

    President Donald Trump issued an ominous warning about the Justice Department and the FBI on Friday, promising further firings to get rid of a “lingering stench” following reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording the president. Trump, speaking at a rally in Missouri, did not explicitly mention the Rosenstein furor, which was first reported by The New York Times and confirmed by The Associated Press. But Trump lashed out against what he sees as anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department, touting the firings he has orchestrated, unnerving many in federal law enforcement and sparking fears about the...

    Following news Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested in May of 2017 that officials in the FBI should wear a wire when speaking with President Trump, the president told a rally in Missouri that he hopes soon to get rid of a "lingering stench" in the Department of Justice and FBI.

  • ‘He is vulnerable’: Trump feels angry, unprotected amid mounting crises

    President Trump’s declaration that “I don’t have an attorney general” was not merely the cry of an executive feeling betrayed by a subordinate. It was also a raw expression of vulnerability and anger from a president who associates say increasingly believes he is unprotected — with the Russia investigation steamrolling ahead, anonymous administration officials seeking to undermine him and the specter of impeachment proceedings, should the Democrats retake the House on Nov. 6. In a freewheeling and friendly interview published Wednesday, Trump savaged Attorney General Jeff Sessions, mocking the nation’s top law enforcement official for coming off as “mixed up...

President Trump: I’m so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me. He was the first senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be attorney general, and I didn’t see it. But he came very strongly he really wanted to be. And, I let him be. And then he went through the nominating process and he did very poorly. I mean, he was mixed up...

    The Hill ^ | 9/19/2018 | John Solomon and Buck Sexton
    President Trump in an Oval Office interview with Hill.TV launched one of his most ferocious broadsides to date against Jeff Sessions, suggesting the attorney general was essentially AWOL and performing badly on a variety of issues. “I don’t have an Attorney General. It’s very sad,” Trump told Hill.TV in an extensive and free-wheeling interview Tuesday from the Oval Office. The president has long excoriated Sessions for his March2017 decision to recuse himself from the Russia collusion investigation. But on Tuesday he suggested he is frustrated by Sessions' performance on far more than that. “I’m not happy at the border, I’m...

    AGJeff Sessions is telling Justice Department lawyers to push back against federal judges who have imposed nationwide injunctions against many of the Trump administration’s policies. "A number of such injunctions in recent years have brought to the fore 'the problem of judges acting outside the bounds of their authority' and granting relief that reaches far beyond the confines of the particular case or controversy before them,”.. adding, “Consistent with the longstanding position of the Ex. Branch under Administrations of both parties, the Dept.of Justice opposes the issuance of such nationwide injunctions.” In the memo, Sessions tells lawyers to remind the...

    Attorney General Sessions today issued the following statement on the Election Security Executive Order: “The American people will not tolerate attempts to undermine the integrity of our electoral process—especially by foreign countries and other bad actors. President Trump is committed to taking definitive action to prevent anyone—foreign or domestic—from illegally interfering in our elections, and the Department of Justice is proud to support him in this mission. “Pursuant to the President’s executive order, the Department will work with our partners at the State Department, Treasury Department, and Department of Homeland Security, in order to identify enemies of our country who...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly considering an investigation into the social media giants, according to Bloomberg. Sessions will have a meeting with the state attorney generals from Alabama, Nebraska, Tennessee, Louisiana and Texas later this month, all of whom have been reviewing the sites’ practices. The meeting is intended to determine whether “there’s a federal case to be made against companies such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook, and Twitter for violating consumer or antitrust laws,” according to Bloomberg. “Those are the kind of resources that we’re going need to break these companies up,” Louisiana AG Jeff Landry stated in...

    A union representing the country's 350 immigration judges slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for comments he made that suggested they were sidestepping the law and showing too much sympathy when handling certain cases. “When we depart from the law and create nebulous legal standards out of a sense of sympathy for the personal circumstances of a respondent in our immigration courts, we do violence to the rule of law and constitutional fabric that bind this great nation," Sessions said Monday in a speech to newly hired judges. "Your job is to apply the law — even in tough cases." Immigration...

    The Washington Post ^ | September 10, 2018 | Greg Sargent, Opinion Writer covering National politics
    CNN is reporting that top congressional Democrats are planning to take an unexpectedly soft line on new and potentially very damning information that has emerged about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Russia probe. Why? Because Democrats understand full well that Sessions, of all people, could end up being pivotal to preventing President Trump from covering up the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. It’s a complicated and interesting situation — and it’s unclear where it’s going to end up. A few days ago, the news broke that in a recent court filing, former Trump campaign adviser...

    President Trump called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the New York Times Friday afternoon in order to find out which "senior administration official" wrote an anonymous op-ed published in the paper earlier this week. Trump is arguing it is essential to U.S. national security to find out who the author is. "It’s a disgrace that somebody can do that. I think it’s more disgraceful that the New York Times would do it. That somebody is allowed to do that is very sad commentary," Trump said onboard Air Force One. "It doesn’t seem to be anybody very high up...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) RIP Burt Reynolds, the King of “toxic masculinity.” – The great Burt Reynolds died of a heart attack at the age of 82 on Thursday, marking the passing of a true television and film legend. Reynolds will be mostly remembered as the “Bandit” in the giant hit film “Smokey and the Bandit,” which I learned yesterday out-grossed “Star Wars” at the box office in 1977. But he was a serious actor, for which he was finally recognized by the creeps in the Hollywood community late in life, a true master of the...

    CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told an event for Chicago police that heeding the advice of those he dubbed "radicals" when it comes to police policy results in higher rates of violent crime. The Chicago Tribune reports Sessions addressed an annual Chicago Police Memorial Foundation vigil held at Soldier Field late Wednesday. It honors police who died on duty. Sessions said law enforcement should set policy on crime-fighting. He said "the last thing" anyone should do is, in his words, "follow the protestations of anti-police radicals and those who have never walked a beat."

    A Grand Jury has been impaneled to investigate fired Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, according to a new report by the Washington Post. Federal prosecutors in Washington are using a Grand Jury to investigate whether McCabe purposely misguided officials over his role in unauthorized disclosures to The Wall Street Journal. The Grand Jury was impaneled months ago and so far more than one witness has been summoned who may have to testify against McCabe. Via WaPo: Federal prosecutors have for months been using a grand jury to investigate former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an indication the...

    I would like to propose that the more or less vacant position of Attorney-General of the United States be filled by Rudy Giuliani. The current office holder, Jeff Sessions, has neutralized himself to such an extent that the position appears more or less vacant. Rudy Giuliani might be the best suited Trump loyalist for this position. It needs somebody who will aggressively prosecute treasonous globalists for high crimes and misdemeanours that are fairly evident to many. Enough is enough, if the objective is to drain the swamp, then sleepy Jeff is not much of a help. What do you think?...

    Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) sent a letter Tuesday to Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions demanding that Inspector General Michael Horowitz and recently appointed DOJ attorney, John Huber interview now embattled DOJ official Bruce Ohr and investigate “critical violations” in connection with the FBI’s handling the Russia investigation and the bureau’s process to obtain a highly secret warrant to spy on a short term-volunteer for the Trump campaign. Meadows, the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus and member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released the letter Wednesday, which encourages both Huber, who was appointed last year by...
