Draining The Swamp – Part IX – AG Jeff Sessions Should Resign!

What is with Attorney General Sessions? First he recused himself from the investigation of the so-called Trump collusion with Russia, so Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as the Special Counsel for that investigation. Now, according to Breitbart:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a small group of lawmakers in late September he was recused from appointing a special counsel to look into potential corruption surrounding the Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS’s work on the Trump dossier, according to one of the lawmakers present.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he and other House Judiciary Committee Republicans had met with Sessions at the Justice Department on September 28 in advance of an upcoming committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later this month.

Gaetz said that when he asked Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the 2010 Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS, the attorney general stood up, said he could not discuss the matter because he had recused himself, and walked out of the room, leaving them with a group of Rosenstein staffers “who showed no interest.”

Of what possible use is Jeff Sessions if he is going to recuse himself from every important investigation? None. By recusing himself, Sessions has, in effect, made Rosenstein the defacto Attorney General. Sorry, Jeff, but if you have so many conflicts of interest that you can’t do your job, then you should resign and let someone more capable do the job.

President Trump is not happy with Sessions, either. From Breitbart:

“A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday morning before leaving for his trip to Asia.

Trump said that the Justice Department should be investigating Democrats and the Clintons, sharing several oberservations on Twitter.

“This is real collusion and dishonesty,” Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday night, responding to Donna Brazile’s revelation that Hillary Clinton’s campaign was controlling DNC operations and fundraising well before winning her primary.

Mr. President, a lot of us join you in questioning Sessions. What has he been doing since taking office? Collecting his salary? We need an Attorney General who will actually do his job, not recuse himself. The Uranium One deal needs to be thoroughly investigated and prosecuted when there is enough evidence. Personally, I don’t doubt there will be the necessary evidence, but it first needs to be investigated. Either get off your duff, Jeff Sessions, and do your job, or resign so someone else can do it! The American people deserve no less!

Are you so wrapped up in conflicts of interest, or does the Deep State have something on you? Are you aiding in the coverup of the Uranium One deal? Are you afraid? Either way, you need to step down. Now! Let President Trump appoint someone who will not be afraid to thoroughly investigate and prosecute these cases.

The Swamp will be drained, whether you help, or not.

    Time for Sessions to leave and put a real American point man who is not afraid of the SCUM in Washington. I would like to see and he has my vote, Trey Gowdy go in and clean their plow. How long do we have to wait to drain the swamp or do the real Patriots of America have to do the job for these lazy good for nothings, sucking off of our hard earned taxes.

      I totally agree Sessions is a little weasel that is afraid to rock the boat because he has so many things in his back ground that they will spring on him if he stands up, he needs to go now and put Trey Gowdy in his place today. This man will and has stood up to anyone that he feels is a friggin’ crook, he has and would go after Clinton,Omuslime,Comey and all of the Demonrats that have screwed the American people and have stolen and sold us out for all these years

    We need an Attorney General that has not been living in the SWAMP his whole life !
    I would like to see someone like Judge Andrew Napalitano or maybe Ron Paul.
    Someone we know has a spine and is not totally corrupted. Not sure if anyone in Congress or Senate fits that description.

          I never said the list was all inclusive. There are many, many more, particularly in the business world, the media and academia that should be added.

Communist Globalist “who’s who” address book…..this anti American filth must be purged at any cost whatsoever if this Sovereign Constitutional Republic is to survive……Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, his “Fundamental Transformation of America” along with the support of those on your list, have damaged, and continue to damage this country Soetoro Sobarka’s Shadow Government (OFA) is fully financed and operational 24/7 to achieve their goals…The fight has only just begun….

    IF Trump were really concerned about the inaction of Sessions, he could just fire him. Or can he? He has fired others including Price. So what gives.

    I concur on Jeff Sessions as I am tired of his excuses and recusing himself. I also say Drain the Swamp!! Jeff Sessions needs to step down or do his job! We did not vote for this kind of crap out of him. I think the deep state has affected his behavior and he has been paid off like so many others in DC.

    If the concept of Equal Justice Under The Law is not renewed by the current Attorney General, the future damage to the psyche of our nation is incalculable. So many are acting like their families are under direct physical threat or being blackmailed. Or perhaps they are just loyal to the unwritten political rule: You do bad to us when you’re “in”, then we will retaliate/reciprocate when we get power again. That’s why the Senate doesn’t get rid of the so-called 60 vote required cloture rule.

    Initially I thought Sessions was one of Trump’s very best picks. I am now totally disillusioned. Either his entire career has been a sham or the Deep State has convincingly threatened him. It has to be one or the other. Thankfully Roy Moore will likely replace him in the Senate.

    IM A ALABAMAIN; “I KNOW JEFF SESSIONS”, IM FORMER POLICE OFFICER WHO ALWAYS GOT BEHIND SESSIONS. IF SESSIONS DOES NOT BACK THOSE WHO “WERE” WITH HIM; THEN SESSIONS NEEDS TO LEAVE HIS POST. THE FACT SESSIONS IS DOING NOTHING , HURTS “WE WHO SUPPORT HIM”. THEN “WE” NO LONGER NEED HIM. ITS TIME FOR SESSIONS TO “RECUSE HIMSELF FROM HIS JOB AS ATTORNEY GENERAL”. YOU HAVE DISAPPOINTED THE GREAT MEN AND WOMEN IN BAMA WHO STOOD BY YOU SINCE YOUR VERY FIRST JOB AS A POLITICIAN. WE ASK YOU “SESSIONS TO STEP DOWN AND OUT OF THE WAY OF MUCH NEEDED PROGRESS”.

    I think it’s similar to what happened with Obamacare and John Robert’s Supreme Court decision. I believe the deep state had dirt on him and I think they have dirt on Sessions, forcing him into a position where the deep state is running the DOJ. There will be no action on the Clintons or their cronies until the swamp is drained, which we may never see in our lifetime.

    The idea that Jeff Sessions (multi-millionaire Senator) did not collaborate with Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel to investigate President Trump, prior to his recusal from “all” things Russian, is ludicrous. Follow this thought: Sessions accepts an appointment to Attorney General. Upon installation to the office, Sessions schemes with Rosenstein to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate President Trump because he must “wink, wink” recuse himself from investigating Russian interference. Thus President Trump must keep him in the AG office, despite his action damaging to the President. What a weasel. President Trump must take the bull by the horns as he has done with North Korea. He needs to nuke Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller. All three are criminal swamp creatures. To Hell with Democrat and Swamp RINO objections!

    This issue of draining the swamp has to include yourself if you can not go through with
    prosecuting those who have taken over our Republic and are bent on turning our country
    into a communistic, socialistic obis from hell then step down and Trump will appoint a God
    fearing man who truly Loves the truth and will truly set us free from Tyranny. These Vermin
    have to go, Starting with the Clintons and any other politician who have sold their souls to Satan.

    This whole article is nonsense. The Attorney General does not need to resign. President Trump needs to quit with his incessant twitter crap, get off his ass, and FIRE Sessions. His tweets about being disappointed are worthless. He appointed Sessions and he has the authority to remove his worthless ass. Enough said.
