New Acting Attorney General Whitaker: ‘I would indict Hillary Clinton’

 

Yes, this should put a tingle in Hillary. There is a new sheriff in town. Big Bad John in the name of Matthew Whitaker who is taking over as Acting Attorney General for Jeff Sessions. Thanks Jeff for moving on. He is of the opinion that Hillary should be charged and penned such an op-ed several years ago.

 

WASHINGTON – Matthew Whitaker, who was named interim attorney general Wednesday after Jeff Sessions was fired, argued two years ago that Hillary Clinton should have been criminally charged.

In an opinion piece for USA TODAY, Whitaker disagreed with then-FBI Director James Comey that “no reasonable prosecutor” would indict Clinton for handling classified documents as secretary of State on a private email server.

“I believe myself to have been a reasonable prosecutor, and when the facts and evidence show a criminal violation has been committed, the individuals involved should not dictate whether the case is prosecuted,” wrote Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney.

He penned the piece while serving as executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a conservative watchdog group.

Read the op-ed piece:

Meanwhile Comey must be sweating bullets just hoping that the new Democrat controlled House will save his sorry butt. Eric is in panic mode as well.

Jeff Sessions Laughs As Students Chant ‘Lock Her Up’ During Speech

 

 

I wondered if Sessions was still living on the planet…  Sessions tells the students he is sure they will “defend yourself for the values you believe in”. Which is a lot more than I can say for him. A total caricature of an Attorney General who lets the Mueller farcical attack on Trump and so many others go on by his own department. Who has personally allowed untold damage to our system of government. Snowflakes he says? Smiling all the way through. Glad to see he is a happy man.

 

Of course NBC brings you this clip and is outraged about the student comment “Lock her up”

During remarks by Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit, students began chanting “lock her up.” Upon hearing anti-Hillary Clinton mantra, Sessions laughed and repeated a line.

 

 

 

Here we see CNN cut the clip so it appears that Sessions started the “lock her up” rather than reacting. It appears the commenter isn’t sold on it. The clip goes on to nonsense chatter about Eric Holder running for President.

I am surprised they didn’t have their “go to man” Clapper reacting.

 

NO WORRIES HILLARY!

Serving up a previous daily special post October, 2017:

AG Jeff Sessions: “I’m Confident” Deputy AG Rosenstein Did Not Threaten Members of Congress

 

Sessions breeches..There has been a sighting with no less than Tucker Carlson. In celebration I will give you this piece of the interview which only proves some wishes are best left unfilled. In this case, watching Sessions churn and justify his department in general and in one Rod Rosenstein in particular, just might give one agita.

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions joined Tucker Carlson to discuss the shocking revelation today that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened members of Congress.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to subpoena emails, phone records and other documents of Republican lawmakers on the House Intel Committee back in January, confirming previous reports.

On Tuesday night Jeff Sessions told Tucker Carlson that he did not believe Rosenstein threatened Congress.

Jeff Sessions: well, I don’t know if they’ve confirmed that exactly. In fact the FBI Director, the senior ethics attorney for the Department of Justice who was in the room said that is a mischaracterization of really of what occurred… We understand in this department that we are accountable to the president and are accountable to Congress. (A real knee slapper – chuckle time.)

Tucker Carlson: Did the Deputy Attorney General threaten to subpoena the email or phone records of the members of the House Intel Committee?

Jeff Sessions: All I can say is Chris Wray and the senior ethics attorney and others and did not see it in that same fashion.

FLASHBACK: AG Sessions said he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep State Criminals

 

America’s Watchtower brings us this headline:  Republican lawmakers send criminal referrals to Jeff Sessions for Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Loretta Lynch 

Wander over for his take on it. Here is more from Breitbart.

But before you slide over, let me give you a flashback headline from B-ville October, 2017.

AG Sessions says he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep state criminals

Jason Chaffetz, former House of Representatives member and Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform was on Justice with Judge Janine Pirro Saturday night and he again dropped a BOMBSHELL about Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

Judge Janine: …What can you do?

Chaffetz: Yeah, the State Department has been holding tens of thousands of documents on a case that they claim is closed.  And when I met with Attorney General Sessions much like Ron DeSantis did, I basically got a stiff arm.  I got an Attorney General that said he would not comply, he wasn’t going to do any sort of prosecutions and it’s such a huge difference.  When he was a Senator he would have never put up with that.Judge Janine went on to ask if Sessions was afraid of them (i.e. deep state)?  She also asked if they all (Congress and Washington politicians) had so many skeletons?  The Judge then correctly stated that this is driving Americans crazy and the American people have had it!

When asked whether Jeff Sessions should be out, Chaffetz correctly responded, “Well I don’t know what the case is to keep him!”

Back to  America’s Watchtower:

House Republicans have reportedly sent criminal referrals to Jeff Sessions for Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page. Here is more:

Republican lawmakers on Wednesday sent a slew of criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a number of Obama administration officials and senior FBI employees for violations of the law in connection to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.

Specifically, they sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.

Snip…

I agree, these people should be held to the same standard as ordinary Americans, but does anybody really believe anything is going to come from this? Jeff Sessions has probably already sent these recommendations to the circular file.

The one possible exception could be Andrew McCabe after an FBI Inspector General report found he lied multiple times while under oath. This report will be hard to ignore by an honest Attorney General but we have Jeff Sessions so, as in the case with the others, I would not hold my breath waiting for justice.

Sessions dines with Rosenstein after fight with Trump

 

So Sessions isn’t going to roll over. By now you no doubt have heard about the back and forth between Sessions and Trump yesterday over Sessions remarks about leaving the Inspector General to look into the FISA abuse. With that, he dines of course with Rosenstein who signed off on at least one FISA application. (I hadn’t realized how short he is,) Here you go– more pics over at Zero Hedge

While it’s anyone’s guess what the trio discussed, the image of Sessions, dining with Rosenstein – who signed off on one or more “Steele dossier” FISA applications – is unmistakable: Sessions enjoys the culinary delights of the swamp.

From refusing to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate the suspected Awan family spy ring, to seemingly covering for the FBI’s mishandling of evidence in the Uranium One case – which Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein were directly involved in, to now relegating the FISA abuse investigation to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) instead of appointing a second Special Counsel – many believe Sessions has been stonewalling for the establishment.

Sessions unleashes prosecutors to go after pot, reverses Obama policy

This is one dumb move as far as I am concerned. If Trump needs big bucks to rise up and come out against him, this is the magic button. Trump has said leave it to the States. Now Sessions is apparently going rogue. This will get the kiddies out to vote in 2018 you best believe it. All the medical pot users too as well as all who have invested in this.

I am no fan of Pot, but this will lose the government for the GOP.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday rolled back an Obama-era policy that allowed legal marijuana to thrive without federal intervention.

The move effectively unleashes federal prosecutors to consider bringing marijuana cases, while stopping short of ordering them to do so.

“U.S. attorneys need to make decisions in these cases as they do in other drugs cases,” a senior DOJ official told Fox News.

The Obama administration back in 2013 announced via a memo from then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole that it would not obstruct states that legalized marijuana, on the condition the drug was regulated so as not to hinder key federal enforcement priorities. This included preventing the drug from being distributed to minors, preventing its movement to other states, and preventing it from being used as a cover for the trafficking of other drugs.

The Department of Justice announced Thursday that it had rescinded that memo, as well as related guidance from 2009. More atFox News

 

AG Sessions says he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep state criminals

 

I can’t say that this news comes as any great surprise. It was getting abundantly clear that Sessions was now part of the swamp. Chaffetz in an interview with Judge Pirro confirms our worse fears, Sessions wanted this job oh so badly and claims it was a job of a lifetime. Yet no one has been more dangerous to Trump than this man. It was he, and he alone that caused this whole ridiculous investigation by recusing himself over a couple of trivial meetings with some Russians. A patriot would disband the whole lot of Mueller et al.

Jason Chaffetz, former House of Representatives member and Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform was on Justice with Judge Janine Pirro Saturday night and he again dropped a BOMBSHELL about Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

Judge Janine: …What can you do?

Chaffetz: Yeah, the State Department has been holding tens of thousands of documents on a case that they claim is closed.  And when I met with Attorney General Sessions much like Ron DeSantis did, I basically got a stiff arm.  I got an Attorney General that said he would not comply, he wasn’t going to do any sort of prosecutions and it’s such a huge difference.  When he was a Senator he would have never put up with that.

Judge Janine went on to ask if Sessions was afraid of them (i.e. deep state)?  She also asked if they all (Congress and Washington politicians) had so many skeletons?  The Judge then correctly stated that this is driving Americans crazy and the American people have had it!
