Sessions: Federal Prosecutor Probing FBI; No Special Counsel fo Now

According to CNN:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Thursday that Utah’s top federal prosecutor, John Huber, is investigating a cluster of Republican-driven accusations against the FBI and has decided that no second special counsel is needed — at least for now.

Huber has been looking into allegations that the FBI abused its powers in surveilling a former Trump campaign adviser, and more should have been done to investigate Hillary Clinton’s ties to a Russian nuclear energy agency, but his identity had remained a secret.
But Sessions’ decision to stop short of formally appointing a special counsel like Robert Mueller, detailed in a lengthy written response to three Republican chairmen on Capitol Hill, will likely anger those in the GOP who have recently ramped up calls to investigate claims of political bias at the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.

Sessions said he will rely on Huber’s review to determine if a special counsel is needed . . .

It also comes one day after the Justice Department’s internal watchdog office confirmed it would review how the FBI obtained a warrant to monitor Trump foreign policy aide Carter Page, as well as the bureau’s relationship with Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump dossier.

FBI’s McCabe Was Investigating Attorney General Sessions

Gee, I wonder if the FBI ever investigated Eric Holder for his possible perjury before Congress. I think not.

This is what we paranoid conservatives mean by the Deep State.

From ABC News:

Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a “lack of candor,” McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly accused Sessions of misleading them in congressional testimony and called on federal authorities to investigate, but McCabe’s previously-unreported decision to actually put the attorney general in the crosshairs of an FBI probe was an exceptional move.

One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware of the investigation when he decided to fire McCabe last Friday less than 48 hours before McCabe, a former FBI deputy director, was due to retire from government and obtain a full pension, but an attorney representing Sessions declined to confirm that.

Here is Why Trump Needs Jeff Sessions

Because he will take actions like this.

The Department of Justice is suing California over state laws that prohibit businesses and police from cooperating with federal authorities trying to enforce immigration law.

The federal government has clear jurisdiction over immigration matters. Sanctuary cities are sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, but not for the Constitution.

Sessions is very tough on illegal immigration. And the country desperately needs that.

According to the Washington Times, there are the offending statutes:

Senate Bill 54, which took effect Jan. 1, bars state and local law enforcement officials from asking people their immigration status, prohibits them from holding migrants for pickup by ICE, and limits how much information they’re allowed to provide to ICE officers.

Assembly Bill 103, which became law last summer, requires a state-run inspection of migrants held in federal prisons — including the circumstances of their arrest and their processing. The new lawsuit says those requests are improper, and the state has “no lawful interest in investigating federal law enforcement efforts.”

Assembly Bill 450, which took effect Jan. 1, prohibits private employers from voluntarily sharing information with federal immigration officials or allowing officers in private areas of their business.

Sessions Gives Sanctuary Cities a Final Warning

This is why President Trump needs to put aside his frustrations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who handed the Russia “collusion” investigation over to a special prosecutor who will look into every crevice of the West Wing trying to find wrongdoing. Because Sessions is the best person to implement Trump’s immigration policy, which was a… Continue Reading

Kamala Harris is Simply Rude

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has only been in the Senate for a few months, but she’s already showing her disrespect for the institution — and and lack of just normal human courtesy — and her inflated sense of self-importance.
