Jeff Sessionsí Letter Shows DOJ Followed Trumpís Demand To Investigate Hillary Clinton
Inquistr ^

Posted on 03/10/2019 7:33:03 AM PDT by MNDude

In a letter released to the public for the first time, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been found ordering U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber to investigate Hillary Clinton, according to watchdog group American Oversight.

The watchdog got hold of the letter after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation. The letter’s existence, which was written in November 2017, was denied a year later in response to American Oversight’s litigation. The Justice Department maintained that Sessions didn’t direct Huber in writing and that any order was passed verbally.

In a letter released to the public for the first time, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been found ordering U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber to investigate Hillary Clinton, according to watchdog group American Oversight.

Since before the 2016 presidential elections, Donald Trump has repeatedly called for the DOJ to investigate Hillary Clinton. He often invoked the infamous “Lock her up” chant at rallies in front of his supporters — and continued his calls for prosecuting Clinton even after becoming president.

Austin Evers, American Oversight executive director, said the letter is proof that Sessions followed Trump’s arbitrary and “authoritarian” demands.

“‘Lock her up’ was wrong at campaign rallies, and it’s even worse coming from the Department of Justice. Even after this long, it’s still deeply shocking to see the black-and-white proof that Jeff Sessions caved to President Trump’s worst authoritarian impulses and ordered a wide-ranging investigation of his political opponents based on demands from Congress instead of the facts and the law.”

In other words, Obama and the DNC covered up the Clinton crimes and obstructed justice.

It’s a freakin’ wha-yah-think letter and not a direction nor a request to actually investigate. Shucks, at most it is a referral to contact R-Weasel. Papering one’s backside. BS-maxi-zoom-dweebie.

Fake News!

It was Congress who requested DoJ to Investigate - in writing.

That is their legitimate oversight role.

These liars falsely blame it on the President, to create an illusion of scandal, to distract from their own obvious corruption.

The best defense is a good offense, so they attack Trump.

Magoo suggested a REVIEW a year and a half ago? And report back to Rosenstein? He’s already reported back, IMO, and we have heard his answer loud and clear.

Timing is suspicious. The FOIA eequest came the day the letter was sent. As if a resistance radical tipped them off.

Yet Hitlery Rotten Clinton and the other Corrupt AF Commirats resisted every damn FOIA request!!!!

And the fing media never front paged Rat opposition to FOIA requests or destruction of communications and devices.

This is no scandal, MSM can urinate up some hemp.

Oh, LOOK..

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5764384-DOJ-11-18-MSJ-Declaration.html#document/p8/a485896

Do take the time to find and read pages 7 & 8 and, most especially...pages 102 and 103. (PAGES tab, upper left)

And
notwithstanding the use of a plural in DOJ’s responses, Ms.
Brinkmann’s declaration establishes
that the only senior prosecutor former Attorney General
Sessions “directed” to carry out the
evaluation of issues raised by Chairman Goodlatte’s letter,
in the sense indicated by the
November 13 letter, is Mr. Huber. Brinkmann Decl. ¶ 14.
Plaintiff’s dissatisfaction with the results of the search
it requested is not a reason to
conduct additional searches outside the scope of its
request. Plaintiff can always request a search
of such records separately if it desires. Accordingly, this
argument provides no sound reason to
call the adequacy of DOJ’s search into question.
CONCLUSION
For the foregoing reasons, DOJ respectfully requests that
the Court grant its motion and
enter summary judgment in its favor.

And then the 2 page "smoking gun" that really isn't?

Muttley...snicker...
Oh, to hell with that!

The DOJ Deep State staffers simply told the MEEK Sessions “Sure, Boss, we’ll get right on it” and, once he was out of sight, laughed at the gullible fool.
