Establishment hack AG Jeff Sessions was pressured by Rep Jim Jordan to admit that he’s not going to appoint a special counsel for Obama Democrats despite much more evidence…
Attorney General Jeff Sessions went from good natured swamp camaraderie and “aw shucks” southern good old boy to displaying himself as a full and complete traitor to the American people in the short span of approximately five minutes under questioning by Freedom Caucus member Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Sessions’ smile quickly left his face as he returned to its familiar and wearisome obstructionism demeanor in response to the first question from Rep Jordan, asking, “Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele, the author of the dossier?”
Reflexively, Sessions repeatedly employs the bailouts, the refusals to do his job that have been his hallmark and frustrated so many Americans since he took the AG position. In his customary bumbling, stumbling, folksy way he says, “Those are matters you’ll have to direct, uh, to the um, I think maybe the special counsel.”
Jordan asks, “And why is that, I’m just asking if someone was paid by the FBI?” Sessions responds, “I’m not able to reveal internal investigatory matters that’s under the investigation of anybody, particularly the uh…”
What that was by Sessions, in addition to an attempt to cover for not doing his job and to avoid accountability in that regard, was a clear obstruction of the Congressional right to know and provide oversight. Sessions knows that Mueller isn’t going to answer any questions just as Sessions is refusing. It’s all buck-passing and theater designed to insulate the corrupt political operatives in their crooked little cabal.
Jordan offers a synopsis of the apparent collusion between the Democrats and the FBI, notes it’s been reported that Steele was on the FBI payroll and says just wants to know if that was the case. Sessions meekly replies, “I’m not able to provide an answer to you.” Jordan asks if the FBI presented the dossier to a FISA court, which Sessions also refused to answer.
Jordan asks Sessions if he knows who leaked details of a meeting discussing the dossier to CNN. Sessions says he doesn’t, and is then asked if he’s investigating to find out who did, to which he once again passes the buck, playing his “special counsel card.” He refused to answer whether there is an investigation.
Jordan notes the receipt of a letter from Sessions a day earlier in which he said he was considering appointing a special counsel. He said, “But my concern is, we sent you a letter three and a half months ago asking for a second special counsel. And if you’re now just considering it, what’s it gonna take to get a special counsel?” He gives a summary of just some of the reasons why one is warranted.
Sessions replies, “It would take a factual basis that meets the standards of the appointment of a special counsel.” Asked if that analysis is going on right now, Sessions refers to the DOJ manual, effectively saying that it is not.
The obstructionist, do-nothing establishment tool shows he’s a becoming a little irritated at having to defend his failures and actions against the American people. Sessions says, “You can have your idea but sometimes we have to study what the facts are and to evaluate whether it meets the standard, requires a special counsel.”
Jordan continues, telling Sessions, “It sure looks like the FBI was paying the author of that document and it sure looks like a major political party was working with the federal government to then turn an opposition research document, the equivalent of some National Enquirer story into an intelligence document, take that to the FISA court, so that they could then get a warrant to spy on Americans associated with President Trump’s campaign.”
He asks, “Doesn’t that warrant naming a second special counsel, as twenty members of this committee wrote you three and a half months ago asking you to do?” Instead of directly answering the question, obstructionist Sessions brags about the new establishment FBI Director and replies as the clock is running out, “And I would say looks like is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel.”
Of course there’s much more evidence, not the mere “looks like” standard if Sessions actually wanted to do his job or appoint someone that would, but he’s there not to prosecute but to prevent prosecutions. Appointing a special counsel to investigate the real political criminals is the last thing he would support.
Under Sessions DOJ stands for Department Obstructing Justice. That’s what he’s there for.
