Brett Baier gave AG Sessions ten minutes without asking a single question regarding prosecution of government criminals. Sessions spewed the same garbage Lynch or…
Bret Baier gave Attorney General Jeff Sessions ten minutes of air time on Fox News in a softball interview worthy of a broadcast on the Ellen DeGeneres program, barely addressing any of the obvious questions regarding his failure to perform on critical issues.
Baier merely gave Sessions a platform from which to talk “semi-tough” and misrepresent what’s going on at DOJ and the FBI, almost as if they were following a script.
Sessions begins by effusively telling Baier how wonderful it is to have him in the courtyard of their great building courtyard, and awkwardly how he works every day to live up to the traditions. He’s living up to the traditions of Holder and Lynch, certainly, particularly in the areas of obfuscation, obstruction and a dual track justice system.
Asked for his take on FISA and surveillance process, Sessions ignores the abuses of the Obama regime and the unmasking completely, arguing, “My view, and I’ve really had it embedded in me [along with other deep state mandates] since I’ve been here, in the Department, is this is a really important issue. We have to protect the fundamentals of 702. I really think if people understood it they wouldn’t think any changes need to be made.”
Maybe if there were some accountability for criminal acts against the American people they might not be so determined that changes are necessary. Maybe if Susan Rice and the rest of the Obama regime that illegally unmasked the identities of President Trump and others, including potentially Sessions as well, faced criminal charges rather than the charades of congressional hearings, that understanding and confidence would be where Sessions claims it should be.
Sessions says, “This program is over-sighted in a half a dozen different ways,” as if that is a persuasive argument. The facade of oversight hasn’t changed in the past two years and the violators, Rice, Power, Rhodes and others, who surveilled American citizens on American soil, are not being prosecuted, they’re not even being interviewed by the FBI. The truth is the American people don’t trust the system and they no longer trust Sessions. [VIDEO BELOW]
Baier raises the question of the lifting of the gag order on the FBI informant but fails to ask the important question of why it took him so long, why he resisted and why it took the involvement of the Judiciary Committee chairman and the Intelligence Committees for it to happen or why it was in place to begin with and used to silence him in a civil suit by Loretta Lynch?
Sessions is clearly tap dancing around whether or not he communicated with the White House on the issue of lifting the gag order. It’s apparent that they spoke through intermediaries but it’s not important, it’s a diversion from what is, part of Baier’s softball pitching scheme.
Baier plays a clip of political hack Preet Bharara, who threw a tantrum when he was fired at the same time as all of the other US Attorneys except for Rosenstein and one other. He’s a globalist Obama devotee and vehement critic of President Trump, yet Baier offers no other explanation as to who he was or the reason for his biased claims of opposition to the gag being lifted.
Bharara is protecting the guilty, his fellow corrupt comrades in the Obama regime, at DOJ and the FBI. Why did Baier choose to include him in the interview?
Baier does manage to ask one question relevant to the ongoing corruption within the DOJ and FBI, about whether or not the Steele dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant on the Trump team. Sessions answers in a very obvious lie, saying, “I don’t know anything about that, I’m not able to comment on that, I would just say that the system seems to be working and it’s a matter that I’m glad people have looked at.”
The system does not appear to be working, Mr. Sessions, with that fabricated Clinton/DNC political hit piece being treated as fact for over a year. How could he not know anything about whether or not it was used in obtaining a FISA warrant. If he doesn’t know it’s more evidence that Sessions is in the wrong job. If he’s lying to keep it covered up from the American people, the indication is the same.
The rest of the interview is largely garbage filler, designed to keep Sessions talking and saying nothing. Baier could have asked about his plans to prosecute Hillary Clinton on the mountain of evidence Comey sat on, and her other many crimes. He could have asked about prosecuting Comey for his leaking of classified documents and perjury.
He could have asked about suspending Rosenstein over the Uranium One cover up and McCabe for his conflicts currently under investigation, instead of allowing them to continue in their roles for the shadow government, with access to critical information to be pirated or evidence to be destroyed.
He could have asked about his plans to pursue a criminal investigation against Loretta Lynch for her obvious misdeeds, or the DOJ obstruction of Judicial Watch FOIAs and other requests for documents that are not be provided in accordance with the law.
Instead Baier asked about an illegal alien and her abortion. Hard-hitting stuff, Baier.
