2nd Special Counsel is our only hope at this point.
Name one reputable, well-known, credentialed, legal type not connected to DC, the GOPe, or the Swamp.
It seems that Sessions deceived President Trump.
Id hate to play poker with that guy.
If the rumors are true about what he has going on just below the one-stream medias see level, then he has fooled them all in a spectacularly low-key fashion.
In the mean time, its just a lot of false witness noise and drama to observe and chew on while we wait for this seasons new episodes to begin.
Maybe it is the immigration thing that keeps Sessions in place. I clearly don't know.
I absolutely reject the notion that sessions is secretly investigating and prosecuting all the obama clinton corruption.
Right, that would be Horowitz doing that. Sessions says he has already appointed an outside-of-Washington prosecutor who is supposed to take the OIG report and evidence and start issuing indictments. If true, I could forgive Sessions a bit. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I buy that. If it is true, the identity of that outside prosecutor is the best (and only) kept secret in Washington.
Me, too. It would also be nice to have a congress with the same goal.
Personally I dont read sessions statement as being he authorized an outside of Wash. prosecutor to investigate and prosecute anything. My recollection is that he was asked if he is going to honor the request to appoint asecond special counsel and he responded that he already had a outside of wash person with prosecutor experience looking at the same matters the congressman requested a special counsel for. He did not indicate that that person had authority to prosecute. I see a big distinction. He could have easily and very approriately said and that person has all the authority to investigate and prosecute. He didnt say that. That leads me to believe this outside wash. Person is merely going to advise him, nothing more. Hopefully, my interpretation is incorrect.
No, he didn't. The whole thing was almost a throw-away line in a bigger interview and had no specifics. My thin hopes are related to the fact that Sessions specified that he had appointed a prosecutor, as you said. Why appoint a prosecutor as a special counsel if you don't intend to prosecute? We'll see what happens when Horowitz releases his report.
Been saying that for a couple of months. Although I still think many would scream obstruction. But not enough would vote to impeach.
It would be a real slog. But it might be the only way to pull the swamp drain plug.
I thought Sessions said that he has somebody outside of DC, looking into appointing a Special Prosecutor.
I’m NOT going to hold my breathe on Sessions appointing anyone! He fired McCabe, because Trump fired Tillerson, and he was running scared that he was next.
The Deep State wants Sessions right where he is, because very little will be accomplished. This past year has been very disappointing due to Sessions focus on the wrong things.
Or, the Qult, as I refer to them.
I like it, but we must wonder why the President hasn't already made that move. It seems like such an obvious strategy, and one that someone as shrewd as Trump would employ.
IIRC, he said he has appointed a DOJ prosecutor from outside DC to look into the areas for which some in Congress were requesting a special prosecutor. And, that's about all we know. I have never seen this person identified and it's not clear what powers and responsibilities might be assigned to him/her.
I think it should be looked at also but would have preferred it during the time of the event(s)....Now it would just muddy already murky waters and there is still an awful lot to be cleaned up just in the DOJ and FBI from current events. Hopefully nothing else will be pushed to the background and forgotten but will be dealt with NOW!!!
Oh oh . . .
“That is the only feasible explanation i have for explaining why sessions is still allowed to remain”
After rejecting Occam’s Razor that’s what you’re left with.
