Senator Jeff Sessions, in the opening day of his confirmation hearings for Attorney General, addressed an issue that is near and dear to Democrat hearts, if they had been blessed with such organs, that of letting Hillary Clinton get away with her crimes.
They would have cheered if the Senator had simply called for one of their favorite “solutions” to any difficulties of the past, whether it involves a terrorist, criminal or illegal alien border jumper, amnesty. That isn’t going to happen with Senator Sessions. The best they could hope for is that he’d remove himself from the process, since the process, barring White House interference, will clearly continue.
That continued investigation was made even more certain by the release of an additional 301 documents by the FBI which show Clinton was emailing with someone outside the government and the content of those emails was classified.
There is also proof contained that the emails in question were stolen by foreign governments, specifically the Russians, Chinese and Israelis. All of the hand-wringing Democrats who were beside themselves over the DNC “hacks” will surely be demanding an investigation of these national security breaches, right? They might put a love of country ahead of political party if they weren’t missing that central organ, the heart. Black ones don’t count.
The exchange in which Senator Sessions made it official and part of the record came in questioning by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley. Asked how he planned to address concerns about how he would walk the tightrope between politics and the legitimate need for an investigation, Senator Sessions said, “Mr. Chairman, it was a highly contentious campaign. I, like a lot of people, made comments about the issues in that campaign with regard to Secretary Clinton. And some of the comments I made, I do believe that could place my objectivity in question.”
He stated, “I’ve given that thought. I believe the proper thing to do would be to recuse myself from any questions involving those kind of investigations that involved Secretary Clinton and that were raised during the campaign, or could be otherwise connected to it.”
Grassley responded, “To be very clear, you intend to recuse yourself from both the Clinton email investigation and any matters involving the Clinton Foundation if there are any?”
“Yes,” Sessions said firmly.
Grassley continued, “Let me follow up again, because it’s important. When you say you’ll recuse, you mean you’ll actually recuse, and the decision will therefore fall to, I assume a deputy attorney general? I ask because after Attorney General Lynch met with President Clinton in Phoenix, she said she would ‘defer’ to the FBI, but she never officially recused.”
Senator Sessions replied, “No, she did not officially recuse and there’s a procedure for that I would follow. And I believe that would be the best approach for the country, because we can never have a political dispute turn into a criminal dispute, in any way that would suggest anything other than absolute objectivity. This country does not punish its political enemies, but this country ensures no one is above the law.”
So there you go, libtards. You have eliminated the fair and objective messenger but you cannot similarly wipe away the problematic message of treason within your ranks. That may yet come by the hand of Hussein Obama, who has plenty that he wants to keep hidden as well.
We can expect a deluge of whistleblowing by career investigators and others wanting to distance themselves from eight years of corruption and abuse of power once the offending officials are safely out the door. Sessions is going to be a very busy man, even with someone else handling the many Clinton crimes.
