Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!
Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!

I don’t think anyone will be prosecuted. Team Clinton is still a viable power in the communist party.
They all remember Vince Foster.
“Lock her up.” Trump, “We don’t care anymore.”
I thought the same thing.
Trump is either setting another red herring out for the media or setting up the case to remove Sessions.
Trump is playing theater. I don't think this bothers Sessions, I think Sessions "undertands" his job is secure, and that Trump is managing the message for the public. I don't think Sessions is part of the theater, he is a sort of McGuffin in this plot.
The FBI is super dirty. Comey was not the only snake, the place is infested. Comey's tem is still in place at the FBI, his riht hand man, McCabe, is running the place. Mini-Comey. The FBI is probably sitting on the Hillary cases.
On the Mueller angle, Trump is setting up challenges to the legitimacy of the investigation against his campaign, in several ways. Mostly that Mueller is biased, see the team he picked; and also that his mission creep is 1) a sign of bias, and 2) per se inappriate inasmuch as the bogus charge in the fist place was "campaign colluding with Russia," not "Manafort was laundering money."
Yep, there is something else at work here.
Discussion on F&F this morning was that Trump is frustrated with the lack of fight of his AG in counterpunching the fake Republican Russian connection with the very real Democratic-Clinton connection to Russia. Newt read off a litany starting with the uranium deal to Bill getting $500,000 for a Moscow speech to other known connections. Trump originally may have let sleeping dogs lie to move on with his agenda but now with the Dems and media crying “Russia, Russia” 24/7, he wants to fight back, turning the fake news back on them with real facts. Sessions starting an investigation will do that with the result that their shouting will be lowered as real facts replace the fake.
Trump is having a meltdown. He is legitimately frustrated with Washington and its failure to get things done. Having a public temper tantrum and going after people like Sessions make things worse.
Sessions is not the enemy. He is trying to drain the swamp.
Here are what some of the enemies of Jeff Sessions are saying (go to the articles for the specific accomplishments):
US attorney general Jeff Sessions may not be part of the biggest investigation in the Department of Justice, but as he reaches 100 days in office, theres little doubt that hes had an important impact on the American criminal-justice systempotentially for years to come.
Despite the political turmoil of the Trump administration, Sessions has moved to reverse a tide of progressive reform and to fulfill his bosss law-and-order agenda, a collection of concepts loosely articulated during the 2016 presidential campaign. Sessions biggest actions, from undermining federal oversight of police departments to cracking down on undocumented immigrants, have worried a wide array of lawmakers, law-enforcement leaders, advocates and scientists.
Of all the cabinet members, maybe even the president, he has to this point had the most significant impact as to policy changes, said Jesselyn McCurdy, the deputy director at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Washington Legislative Office told Quartz.
Unlike his boss, Sessions is delivering on what he has promisedsometimes on causes he has championed for decades.
Theres been a great bipartisan movement by organizations on the ground and members of Congress to reform the federal criminal-justice system, based on successes that have happened in the states, but the leader of opposition to that reform was Jeff Sessions, as a senator from Alabama, McCurdy said. These are all things that [Sessions], as a criminal justice reform opponent, had on his radar already.
McCurdy said Sessions was definitely living up to the ACLUs concerns, and in some areas, fulfilling the worst-case scenarios.
In just over two months, Sessions has proved to be a central figure in effectuating Trump's vision for America in tangible ways on immigration, crime, police reform and civil rights.
And while the White House searches for new messaging to frame what Trump has accomplished in the first 100 days in office, Sessions has single-handedly managed to make several significant domestic policy changes -- from pressing pause on implementing police reforms to withdrawing Obama-era protections for transgender students in public schools.
His radical transformation of the Justice Department's role is no accident.
Many of the changes Sessions has made thus far track a familiar principle of federalism: the notion that the federal government's powers are limited and it can't coerce states into action. In other words, the federal government should get out of the states' way.
Sessions' critics worry that he is well on his way to undoing many of the major progressive achievements of his predecessors, often by withdrawing from court cases or previous directives that fail to align with his views. Yet Trump supporters cheered Sessions on during the presidential campaign when he said, "the American people are not happy with their government."
Now that Sessions is the nation's top law enforcement officer, his defenders and critics universally agree: he's been busy fulfilling the President's campaign promises and he's just getting started.
Sessions got hoodwinked by a third rate comic into recusing himself. Whether it was by his or Smalley’s design, time will tell. However, it is fine now to look at his stupid action, say he obviously made a huge mistake, and recant his recusal. What are they going to do, impeach him?
My guess is he does not want to get into the situation where the winners investigate the losers after elections. The recusal was the easy way out. However, the irony here is he is letting the losers obstruct the president’s mandate which is just as that if not worse.
History is repeating. We let a charade go on with Nixon. The irony there was a few of those on those committees were integrity challenged beyond anything that Nixon did. He was investigated for everything from tax fraud to masterminding a two bit break in. He had won 49 states and 97% of the electoral vote and the public let the dems take him out. That is just what they are trying to do now admittedly in a closer election.
Before he resigned, Nixon’s administration was tied up, Haig was actually running the government and most of his senior officials were testifying, on their way to jail, or resigning. Sessions: Don’t let it happen again.
He also knows that government is not business. He's mentioned that a few times.
I won't Defend Trump attacking Sessions by the way. I think Trump could get similar ultimate effect without doing that. But I have to admit, there is all sorts of attention on the DoJ/FBI/Mueller relationship now, driven by the attack against Sessions. The spotlight is moving over in that direction.
Don’t forget the Gowdy questions to Comey about Hillary testimony catching all her lies !
Mr. sessions is unwilling to do his job and unwilling to call on those shielding those under investigation to recuse themselves in any case in which there may be the mere appearance of a hint of bias towards the defendants.
He should move to the private sector.
Trumps not so subtle way of telling Sessions to get his act together or face unemployment.
Sessions was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama beginning in 1975. In 1981, President Reagan nominated him to be the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama. The Senate confirmed him and he held that position for 12 years until Bill Clinton's Attorney General, Janet Reno, asked for his resignation.
Sessions was elected Attorney General of Alabama in November 1994, unseating incumbent Democrat Jimmy Evans with 57% of the vote.
Prior to MAGA, his best-known quote was “You’re fired.” Now he’s POTUS and he can’t?
If Sessions is so courtly of manner, he should not stay where he’s not wanted. It shouldn’t be necessary to take it public or even to tell him he’s fired.
That's not the way it's done.
If he wants Jeff to resign, he simply tells him its time to go and then releases a public statement that he tried to talk Jeff out of leaving but wishes him well in his next endeavor.
Management doesn't air its dirty laundry in public. Trump knows this well.
But in the end it will be about as effective as the claims that Sessions is a bigot; and I also have my doubts that Trump sincerely sees Sessions as a scapegoat for the systematic rot that underlies both the bogus Russia investigation, and allowing the Clinton Crime Family to get off.
Clean house and expect it to get violent.
Maybe, but Trump would be running the risk of turning his tweets into noise.
They all remember Vince Foster.
Foster????????? How many others have been *found dead* just within the past 3 months? The people investigating the emails, DNC and Clintons drop like flies. It’s so blatant, that if it was a mystery novel, it would have to be misdirection in a set-up before an outrageous twist.
