Rep Louie Gohmert brought a chart to AG Sessions’ testimony to visualize the extent of Dem corruption and how it’s tied to DOJ. He showed it to the Fox audience but time…
Rep Louis Gohmert was one of the members of the House Judiciary Committee who questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding the tsunami of Democrat corruption among both current and former government officials and the virtual absence of any hint that there are any investigations taking place.
Gohmert brought to the hearings a chart that depicts the many various criminal and conflicting relationships of those in need of investigation, either by the DOJ or preferably by a special prosecutor. Those suspect officials include Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Shannon Bream tells Gohmert he was really hard on the Attorney General, which is not the case at all. He opened by defending him from Sen Al Franken, and fed him softball questions about his relationships with Mueller and Rosenstein and his knowledge of possible improprieties on their part.
Sessions claimed he was mostly unaware of pretty much everything that was asked of him that day, but Gohmert was among the least harsh while still being somewhat probing and raising some problematic issues. [VIDEOS BELOW]
His chart details relationships between individuals and organizations that need to be investigated and he’s got the information to back them up. Gohmert points out, “The more you get into this the more clear it is this should be the item that has a special prosecutor. And in fact we ought to be looking at Mr. Mueller, we ought to be looking at Mr. Rosenstein.”
Gohmert shows a motion to seal records that Rosenstein signed that could have been intended as a means to bury the evidence of his and Mueller’s collusion in the Uranium One cover up. Bream doesn’t seem to quite get the point of their potential culpability, asking, “You don’t think they can be objective?”
Gohmert explains, “They were so involved in the initial investigation of Russia trying to corner the market, that should have prevented Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder and others from approving the sale of our uranium to Uranium One and to ultimately with Russia. He says, “It’s the biggest scandal that there’s ever been in American history.”
Gohmert says he was pleased to hear Attorney General Sessions indicate that there are parts of this scandal that he thinks he can investigate and that they have been, in his opinion, investigating some of it. “What are you waiting for? should have been the next words out of the questioner’s mouth followed by what’s taking so long?” A frustrated Rep Jim Jordan asked multiple times, “What’s it going to take?” as he was trying to get a special counsel or some kind of fire lit under Sessions to do his job.
In the second video, the questioning of Sessions earlier in the day by Rep Gohmert, approximately the last forty seconds involves an attempt by Sessions once Gohmert has concluded his questioning to clarify something from earlier that involves the culpability of Rosenstein.
He says that the “matter that was prosecuted concerning Russian business companies was two years after the CFIUS investigation and that’s when Mr. Rosenstein handled, it was brought to his office, it didn’t hit his office until two years after. And it’s really unrelated to the allegations about Uranium One as I understand it.”
Sessions doesn’t have an aptitude for investigations or the requisite curiosity and discernment to spot inconsistencies that even many in Congress have. The use of a confidential informant took place as early as 2009, according to The Hill, and the deal for our uranium was approved in October of 2010 with the investigation fully underway and the criminality known.
The two year gap between that decision and the weakened criminal prosecution was likely exactly what Gohmert said it was. They waited two years not only for the criminal case to run its course, but for the calendar to provide the appearance that the two were, just as Sessions said, “completely unrelated,” as they buried the evidence.
