    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered his thoughts on who should replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House. “I think your cabinet needs to have people in it who agree with you,” Paul said when asked if he was happy about Sessions’ departure. “I think for a long time Jeff Sessions hasn’t really been working for what the president would like him to do.” “I also think that there are some big reforms that we need of our justice and our intelligence agencies, and I think justice can be part of...

    As acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s refusal to recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller probe rattles Democrats and even Kellyanne Conway’s husband – all of whom worry that President Trump may finally have found a way to force an ending to the interminable investigation – the shortlist for Jeff Sessions’ replacement is growing longer. According to multiple media reports, Trump is considering no fewer than seven people for the job: Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Labor Secretary Alex (not Jim) Acosta, HHS Secretary Alex Azar, US Appeals Court Judge Edith Jones and former Attorney General...

    Minnesota Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison has submitted a request for a House Ethics Committee investigation into domestic abuse allegations raised against him by an ex-girlfriend. "Today I am announcing that I will submit a request for a House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations against me raised by a former partner. I am taking this step now because I am innocent and eager to see this entire matter resolved," Ellison wrote in a statement to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor party has hired a private lawyer, Susan E. Ellingstad, to conduct their own investigation into the allegation. When reached for comment...

    A Grand Jury has been impaneled to investigate fired Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, according to a new report by the Washington Post. Federal prosecutors in Washington are using a Grand Jury to investigate whether McCabe purposely misguided officials over his role in unauthorized disclosures to The Wall Street Journal. The Grand Jury was impaneled months ago and so far more than one witness has been summoned who may have to testify against McCabe.

    I would like to propose that the more or less vacant position of Attorney-General of the United States be filled by Rudy Giuliani. The current office holder, Jeff Sessions, has neutralized himself to such an extent that the position appears more or less vacant. Rudy Giuliani might be the best suited Trump loyalist for this position. It needs somebody who will aggressively prosecute treasonous globalists for high crimes and misdemeanours that are fairly evident to many. Enough is enough, if the objective is to drain the swamp, then sleepy Jeff is not much of a help. What do you think?...

    On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions denounced the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for weaponizing its "hate group" designations against conservative organizations, and pledged that the Department of Justice (DOJ) will not partner with hate groups or groups that defame Americans. He spoke in front of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian legal organization that has won 9 Supreme Court cases in the last seven years and that has been unfairly defamed as a "hate group" by the SPLC."I have ordered a review at the Department of Justice to make sure that we do not partner with any...
  • Sanders in Minnesota to Support Ellison in AG Race

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is coming to Minnesota to support Rep. Keith Ellison's bid for attorney general. Sanders was set to headline a rally for Ellison Friday morning at First Avenue in Minneapolis. The pair was scheduled to hold a rally in Duluth later Friday. The one-time presidential candidate's visit is the latest reminder of the high stakes surrounding the Democratic primary in the normally sleepy race for attorney general. And it could galvanize Democrats.

    GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy unloaded on Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff Thursday, slamming the leading Democrat’s handling of the Russia probe and saying he’s had “a terrible last couple of years.” Gowdy was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on Schiff’s recent rhetoric where he labeled the Republican lawmaker as one of the “four horsemen of the apocalypse” in regard to obtaining information from the DOJ regarding the Russia probe.“Let me tell you this about Adam. Adam’s had a terrible last couple of years,” Gowdy said. “He wanted to be the attorney general under Hillary Clinton,...

    The Nebraska Democratic candidate for attorney general who was accused of attacking his father has stepped aside, citing health reasons. Van Argyrakis had faced calls to remove himself from the ballot because he was charged with felony strangulation following an altercation with his 82-year-old father on April 8. Party leaders can choose a replacement Democrat to appear on the ballot.

    Brotherhood-linked Congressman Keith Ellison is giving up his ultra-safe seat in the U.S. House of Representatives to run for the post of attorney general of Minnesota, a risky move in a state that isn’t as radically left-wing as his home district. The primary election is Aug. 14. Ellison, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chairman who essentially endorsed the violent anarchists and communists of the subversive Antifa movement, claims he wants to be the North Star State’s top lawyer to litigate away in a quest for justice. “It was attorneys general who led the fight against [President Trump’s so-called] Muslim...

    Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has told Trump administration staffers that she would be interested in taking over as attorney general from Jeff Sessions, Politico reported Thursday. Pirro, who has been a vocal supporter of President Trump since his campaign, has repeatedly told Trump aides since the election that she would like to be the attorney general, according to the report. The Fox News host has frequently used her show to target Sessions, and recently described him as “the most dangerous man in America.” However, aides told Politico that Trump is not seriously considering Pirro for the job. He...

    The Democrats’ ongoing quest to topple the president. The new House Intelligence Committee report finds no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. The former FBI boss tasked with finding the collusion, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, recently announced that President Trump is not his target. This has left many observers puzzled, but one Russian actor may be able to put things in perspective.   In the 1981 Fort Apache the Bronx, police officers throw a man off a roof. Many American viewers were horrified but Russian actor Yakov Smirnoff had a different take. “This is nothing,” Smirnoff said. “In Russia,...

    Enter Jeff Sessions. When he came to Sacramento in early March, as the DOJ filed its lawsuit, politics seemed furthest from his mind — though he was as passionate as ever about the principles at stake. “We believe that we cannot accept the kind of restrictions that California placed on federal law officers, and we believe that their actions exceeded the Constitution, and we will win in the courts eventually,” he told me in an early-morning interview. Curiously, President Donald Trump did not comment publicly about the DOJ lawsuit. But the lawsuit provided sudden inspiration to California conservatives, who began...

    Elder Patriot – Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally announced an investigation into the use of federal money to fund radical leftwing advocacy groups. In making the announcement Sessions cited that at least six billion dollars was funneled into what was essentially a slush fund for Obama’s army of street activists. It’s almost a certainty that that amount is going grow significantly. The groups receiving the money included La Raza (now UnidosUS), NeighborWorks America, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, Operation Hope, Black Lives Matter, and a spin-off of Acorn The Mutual Housing Association of New York, among numerous other extremist groups....

    On April 6, at midnight, in a small room once used as a phone booth on the second floor of the Rayburn House Office Building, a Capitol Hill Police Officer doing his security rounds discovered evidence that will possibly reveal one of the the biggest security breaches involving House Democrats by the Awan family, a group of entrusted IT staffers, according to court records, police reports and news reports. In the small room, the U.S. Capitol Police found a laptop computer registered to Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a Florida Democrat and former DNC chairwoman. Wasserman-Schultz had been fighting authorities for months...
