Jeff Sessions, who before joining the Trump Administration was an admired and respected Alabama Senator, has proven to be a pathetic, feckless, sorry excuse for an Attorney General, one who is likely tainted with the same corruption that was characteristic of the DOJ prior to his arrival.
Since Sessions came on the scene nothing has changed for the better. FOIA requests and other efforts to obtain information are still opposed and redacted as they were under Holder and Lynch, and cover ups and refusals to prosecute notorious, high profile criminals are still the order of the day.
One of those most notorious is the former IRS employee, Lois Lerner, who took the Fifth Amendment to cover her guilt and was forced out of her government employment but still allowed to receive her pension, because of her criminal wrongdoing.
She engaged in illegal political taxpayer targeting under orders or at least with the tacit approval of high-ranking Democrats within the Obama regime. That is not even in dispute. Yet AG Sessions isn’t going to do anything about it.
He’s going to let her get away just as he is allowing Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch, James Comey and every other Democrat who preyed upon the American people during the Obama years. Why is that, Jeffy boy?
In a response to calls by Republican lawmakers to revisit the case, in actuality visit it for the first time as no legitimate investigation has yet been conducted, an unnamed “Justice” Department official stated that the Trump administration has no plans to charge Lerner over her role in the Tea Party targeting.
In a letter to lawmakers, the DOJ stated that “reopening the criminal investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence.” Why, unnamed DOJ official? Is it because she’d be convicted and open up the whole can of worms, exposing the rampant corruption on the part of the entire federal government?
In April, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take a “fresh look” at the case. Sessions took five months to determine that there was “nothing to see here,” despite mountains of evidence that she and others were specifically injecting their politics and that of the Obama regime into their daily activities and targeting those with whom they disagreed.
In 2015 the corrupt Obama DOJ stated that their faux-investigation had “found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution.” Of course they didn’t find anything, they never looked and what jumped out at them was ignored.
Chairman Brady was stunned at the response. “This is a terrible decision,” he said. “It sends the message that the same legal, ethical, and constitutional standards we all live by do not apply to Washington political appointees.”
And perhaps more disturbing, it says that the crooks who were in power before Sessions arrived are still in power now and that he is likely one of them.
Brady said IRS and other appointees “will now have the green light to target Americans for their political beliefs and mislead [lie to] investigators without ever being held accountable for their lawlessness.”
The sad reality seems to be that “Drain the Swamp” was nothing more than a catchy slogan designed to deceive the American people into believing we had a champion willing to fight for us. The DC Swamp is not being drained, it’s basically unchanged save a few figureheads here and there. Sessions is one of the greatest disappointments of all.
Unfortunately, it’s happening under President Trump and apparently with his approval, which is cause for some very serious concern on the part of Americans. This is not the 4D chess we’ll be told it is. It’s criminal conduct that is being embraced and ignored. That’s not how you Make America Great Again. It’s how you continue the decline and deceive your supporters.
We Americans deserve the truth from our leaders and an honorable Justice Department. It’s what we worked and prayed for during the election and thought we thought we had back in January. Something has gone very wrong.
