Quin Hillyer: Sessions puts a stop to Department of Justice’s bullish abuse of power

Yes, Jeff Sessions really is making a difference at the Justice Department, as a new order curbing the department’s own power makes clear.

The other day, a friend said to me that he figured Sessions really would be better off accepting a write-in bid for his old Senate seat because “he’s not really doing anything as Attorney General anyway. I haven’t seen any big successes there.”

I beg to differ. I’ve covered the Department of Justice (DoJ) quite closely for more than 20 years, and have seen that much of what gets done there – especially the bad stuff – occurs mostly behind the scenes. Under Barack Obama, DoJ became a cesspool of radical-left politics, with all sorts of skullduggery going on not just at the top levels, but at the middle levels of the bureaucracy.

Sessions is steadily cleaning out the stables. What he is doing doesn’t always make the headlines, but it does make a difference. A big one.

Was kinda hoping this was about removing Mueller, et. al., but I'll take it.

Looks like sessions is sleeping with one eye open at least.

You’ll trigger the “all knowing” farce, I mean force.

His “rule of law” method is such a contrast to the egregiously politicized Holder/Obie approach, people think he’s not doing anything. He is saddled with many of their appointees, as well. I’m as impatient as the next freeper, but this article gives some hope.

Okay so so sessions issued this memo. I am all in favor of that.

But a memo only takes a few hours at the most.

What’s he doing the rest of the time?

Hillyer is nuts. No amount of memos will make up for sessions refusing to investigate and prosecute all of the clinton obama scandals that he so vociferously condemned when he was a senator. He is absolutely useless and should be repkaced before the statute of limitations runs out on all these crimes.
