    Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating whether President Donald Trump sought to obstruct a federal inquiry into connections between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives has now directed the Justice Department to turn over a broad array of documents. In particular, Mueller's investigators are keen to obtain emails related to the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the earlier decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the entire matter, according to a source who has not seen the specific request but was told about it. Issued within the past month, the directive marks the special counsel's...

    “Under DACA—without the consent of Congress—individuals here illegally who met certain criteria were granted not only lawful presence but work authorization, and the right to participate in Social Security, which unlawful immigrants are not entitled to have,” Sessions continued. “So no matter what one thinks about the immigration issues and policy, it cannot be defended in my opinion lawfully.” “Once again, the Department advised and the administration put an end to it—and it is being ended now.”
  • Chris Christie Would Have Made A Better Attorney General Than Jeff Sessions

    Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance earlier this week. He had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions. During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first Republicans to back Donald Trump who said Christie would make "a great attorney general". Christie lost out to Sessions, who has spent the past year trying to win a place among the worst cabinet picks ever. Sessions hadn't made it through...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions reportedly has no intention of trying to reclaim his old Senate seat as Republican leaders scramble to find an alternative to their party's nominee, Roy Moore, who is facing a slew of allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers. Sources told Politico that Sessions is not interested in returning to the upper chamber of Congress, despite being contacted by former colleagues, like Alabama's senior senator, Richard Shelby.
  • Jeff Sessions continues to prove he’s Trump’s biggest mistake

    11/14/2017 10:58:42 PM PST · by Oshkalaboomboom · 70 replies
    Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an...

    Darrel Nelson, the stepson of Judge Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson says the allegations are all lies. Nelson says he is baffled by the timing of the sexual advancement claims and voices his staunch support for the Alabama GOP Senate candidate. Nelson, 56, held a press conference in New York with embattled attorney Gloria Allred on Monday, alleging Judge Roy Moore sexually harassed her when she was 16 years old. According to Beverly Young Nelson’s account reported by the Washington Examiner, “Moore offered to drive her home from work one night but instead parked in a “dark, deserted” part...

    Full title: Gregg Jarrett: Hillary Clinton must face the consequences of her actions and the scrutiny of a special counselNo person in this country is so high that he or she is above the law. This includes Hillary Clinton. There is no station in life or standing in government or political aspiration that absolves someone from criminal conduct. In this way, we are all creatures of the law and are bound to obey it. An orderly society cannot function if it permits individuals to disregard the law with impunity. This fundamental principle, enunciated by the U.S. Supreme Court more than...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is looking into possibly appointing a special counsel to investigate an actual crime. Responding to a flurry of Republican concerns around the Clinton Foundation and the sale of a vast amount of American uranium to Russia, according to a letter The Washington Post unearthed, Sessions appears to be finally taking action. News of this controversial sale of a treasured resource has been around for months. Republicans in Congress have been calling for action on this and the noise has been getting louder in recent weeks. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia in both July...
  • Jeff Sessions: 'Not enough evidence' for special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton

    Jeff Sessions on Tuesday said there was “not enough evidence” to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton, a day after reports surfaced that the attorney general had authorized senior prosecutors at the Department of Justice to evaluate an inquiry into the Clinton Foundation. Testifying before the House judiciary committee, Sessions also appeared to push back on Donald Trump’s repeated insistence that the FBI should focus on investigating Clinton as opposed to potential collusion between his own presidential campaign and Russia.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday pushed back on the immediate need for a second special counsel to investigate former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. It would take "a factual basis that meets the standard of a special counsel" for the Justice Department to make such an appointment, he said during a heated exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) at a Tuesday House Judiciary Committee meeting. Jordan made a fiery case for allegations of improper spying on the Trump campaign by the Obama administration DOJ that widely touted amongst Capitol Hill Republicans. Sessions at first demurred, noting that Comey is...

    Jeff Sessions: I Have No Reason to Believe Judge Moore Accusers are Lying Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee fired off several questions today on Republican Judge Roy Moore during the House Judiciary hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Lee accused Judge Roy Moore of five counts of child sexual activity today during testimony at the House Judiciary Committee. So far two women have accused Judge Moore of illicit sexual activity with minors. Three others were teens when they accused Judge Moore of sexual advances which would not be illegal due to the age of the women at the time. Jeff Sessions...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is paving the way for a possible special counsel to investigate Uranium One and Hillary Clinton. In a letter Monday, the attorney general directed senior federal prosecutors to look into the sale of Uranium One, unlawful dealings of the Clinton Foundation, and James Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe and dossier. The announcement comes after Representatives Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz delivered an ultimatum to the attorney general, telling him to launch an investigation or resign so they can appoint someone who will.

    It’s outrageous that after nearly a year in office AG Sessions is now considering an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the approval of the sale of US uranium to Russia by Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration. The fact that Congress asked the Justice Department to look into the many corrupt and criminal actions of the Clintons and the Obama Administration and that we are just finding out now that Sessions is looking into these issues is appalling. What took Sessions so long? Is he even serious about looking into these crimes? Americans have known for years that the...

    Hate crimes rose for the second straight year in 2016, with increases in attacks motivated by bias against blacks, Jews, Muslims and LGBT people, according to FBI statistics released Monday. There were more than 6,100 hate crimes last year, up about 5 percent over the previous year. In 2015 and 2016, that number was driven by crimes against people because of their race or ethnicity. More than half the 4,229 racially motivated crimes were against black people, while 20 percent were against whites, the report shows. And Jews were targeted in more than half the 1,538 crimes that were motivated...

    'Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post. The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September...

    Two House Republicans delivered an ultimatum Monday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, telling him either to name a special counsel to investigate FBI Director James Comey’s handling of last year’s election, or else resign to clear the way for someone who will. Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Matt Gaetz of Florida said questions are piling up over the way Mr. Comey conducted the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s secret emails and the FBI’s treatment of an anti-Trump dossier. “It’s time for Jeff Sessions to name a Special Counsel and get answers for the American people.
