Sessions should have never accepted the position of AG if he had no intention of performing its function. His name should have been withdrawn at this moment, when he admitted…
If only President Trump had realized what he was getting himself into at the time Jeff Sessions uttered these words, and withdrawn his name from nomination for Attorney General, things would be very different today.
Sessions declared that he would completely abdicate his duties in any issue involving one of the most vile and prolific criminals of our time and no one has seen fit to fill in the void left by his abandonment. Aside from him being paid to stutter and stumble around, the worst political and deep state bureaucratic offenders are being ignored.
President Trump stated over the past couple of days that he believes it is inappropriate to insert himself and clearly the media would skewer him if he did so, particularly if it results in action against their evil sorceress, Hillary Clinton.
Rosenstein and others in the leadership at both the FBI And DOJ, who are prime targets and guilty of the very crimes that would be investigated aren’t about to step up and initiate an action against themselves, and those subordinates under them who might be so inclined are given other assignments. So nothing happens, by design.
When President Trump stated in the aftermath of the New York City terrorist attack that our Department of Justice was a joke, he knew what he was talking about. The corrupt leadership is never held accountable.
The Sessions recusal makes all of it possible. Had he not taken that step, he’d have been obligated to do his job and had no excuse for letting the guilty off the hook. With the recusal, the waters are muddied and he and Rosenstein can each point a finger at the other as they look to prosecute MS13 gang members. [VIDEO BELOW]
During his confirmation hearings in January, Sessions said, “With regard to Secretary Clinton and some of the comments I made, I do believe that that could place my objectivity in question, I’ve given that thought, I believe the proper thing for me to do would be to recuse myself from any questions involving those kinds of investigations that involve Secretary Clinton that were raised during the campaign or could be otherwise connected to it.”
Sessions was asserting at the time and is now fulfilling the false premise that anything that took place during the campaign is off limits to him simply by virtue of the fact that he was on the winning side and Clinton was not.
Is every petty thief, robbery suspect or murderer also entitled to escape justice if they’re a Democrat or is it only the most corrupt and biggest offenders who are politically connected that are “owed by American society” the privilege of roaming freely without fear of prosecution?
Senator Grassley asked for clarification, asking if Sessions intended to recuse himself from the Clinton email case and “any matters involving the Clinton Foundation,” if there are any. Sessions replied, “Yes,” meaning that not only was the slush fund safe but its use as the financing vehicle for their racketeering meant that those activities were free of investigation by the Attorney General. We can imagine Clinton herself saying the same thing at that instant, with a fist pump, a celebratory shout of “Yes!”
Sessions gave Clinton the same kind of get out of jail free card that James Comey gave her and still was allowed to become the Attorney General. He offers the lamest of excuses for his decision, saying, “I believe that would be the best approach for the country, because we can never have a political dispute turn into a criminal dispute,” adding “this country does not punish its political enemies.”
Sessions trivializes the nature of the Clinton crimes, completely ignoring their egregious nature and diminishing their severity to level of political disputes. Regardless of the politics of the individual involved, they deserve prosecution. He’s characterizing them as a witch hunt, something that, ironically, it is Clinton and the Democrats engaging in.
Sessions not only offers the appearance of having no understanding of or confidence in the Justice System and its application but also of one who is compromised and acting under duress in accordance with the instructions of others.
At the time he stated his intentions to recuse himself in January and detailed the scope that he envisioned for such an action, his name should have immediately been withdrawn. There were other positions available at the time with which to reward him for his service to the campaign, although, based upon his performance, he would have been a miserable failure no matter what capacity he was placed into.
It’s just too bad he was put into the very position where he could inflict the most damage.
