Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been facing increasing criticism for his failures to act in a timely manner to issues of corruption within DOJ and the FBI, including his failure to examine the free pass given to Hillary Clinton by James Comey and his inappropriate relationship and conduct jointly with former AG Loretta Lynch.

Fox News’ Shannon Bream interviewed Sessions while he was in California addressing their rebellious state government through a meeting of law enforcement officers, and asked him about his efforts to clean things up in his own DOJ house.
She asks Sessions for his view on a letter sent by Reps Goodlatte and Gowdy asking for the appointment of a second special counsel in order to investigate the FISA abuses and other likely criminal conduct by Department of Justice and FBI officials.
Sessions replied, “Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte and we’re going to consider seriously their recommendations.”
Sessions reveals he’s actually already working in that direction, saying, “I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice, to look at all of the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we’re conducting that investigation.”
He continues, saying, “I also am well aware that we have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of the FISA process. We’re not afraid to look at that. Some think our Inspector General is not very strong, but he has almost 500 employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors, and they’re looking at the FISA process. We must make sure it’s done properly and we’re going to do that. And I’ll consider their request.”
Bream asks if the American people or Congress will be able to see some of the FISA requests to evaluate for themselves what happened. Sessions replied, rather ambiguously, “I am determined to release everything that is properly releasable.” Judicial Watch might have a few more questions about his obstruction of their many cases. That has not been, by any stretch, their experience with DOJ or the FBI.
He continues, “It does tend to be the more you put these documents out, which are very sensitive, the more they leak, so we have to be careful about that [not let Adam Schiff see them]. We also have to follow the rules of the department and legal requirements.
He then goes on to praise FBI Director Christopher Wray, evidence that Sessions is not fully aware of the depth of the septic tank he’s swimming in. He calls the purging of some of the bad apples “a fresh start at the FBI,” with “people of integrity and ability,” as if their problems have now been solved.
Sessions went on to defend the public dinner he shared with Rod Rosenstein and the Solicitor General after President Trump called him out as “disgraceful” in a tweet. He did so in a demonstration of support for his crooked deputy, and inexplicably continues to have his back, lamely defending the dinner as “we had an opportunity to dine together.” What’s wrong with the DOJ cafeteria?
Is it possible he’s really this out of touch or is he simply playing the role of Mr. Magoo to the hilt, perhaps a cross between Mr. Magoo and Baghdad Bob? Sessions says he’s determined to give the American people a DOJ and FBI they can respect. That won’t happen until he wakes up and while it appears he may have opened his eyes slightly, he also seems to have hit the snooze and rolled back over.
For whatever reason, he’s not there yet.
