    Vice President Mike Pence will visit Dallas Rep. Pete Sessions' district ahead of the November elections as part of a determination that the longtime incumbent's campaign against Democrat Colin Allred is the top mid-term priority in Texas. That's the word from Corey Lewandowski, senior strategist to Pence's political action committee. "Pete's district is probably the most critical for us," he said Wednesday at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "When you look at the race, you look at his opponent, and you look at where things are."

    President Trump said Tuesday that the Russia probe would not exist “if we had a real Attorney General” and called for the investigation to end in light of Peter Strzok’s involvement. The president blamed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the course special counsel Robert Mueller took in his investigation and argued it should focus on Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

    Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. said he thinks Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray “deceived” President Trump into appointing them. “Are there any grownups w/ integrity left in the DOJ?” Falwell first said on Twitter on Friday. “When I was a kid, I watched [Republicans] join [Democrats] to force Nixon out. Now [Democrats] won’t join [Republicans] to lock up [former FBI Director James] Comey, [former Attorney General Loretta] Lynch, [Department of Justice official Bruce] Ohr, Rosenstein, [FBI agent Peter] Strzok, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama & maybe even Jeff Sessions despite damning evidence!”

    A Houston Tex-Mex restaurant has shut down its social media accounts after receiving insults and death threats for posting a picture of executive chef Domenic Laurenzo with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. KHOU11, a CBS affiliate, reported the restaurant posted the photo Friday and wrote that it was an “honor” to serve the attorney general, thanking him “for allowing us to serve you.” The Tex-Mex eatery was immediately hit with criticism online. Some called for a boycott of the restaurant and Laurenzo told KHOU that he received death threats. Laurenzo told KHOU that the response was entirely unexpected. “We didn’t...

    President Trump ratcheted up his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Saturday, tweeting that Sessions was "scared stiff" and "Missing in Action" in defending him amid special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Trump slammed Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer at the center of the Trump dossier scandal, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) and once again slammed Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt." "The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife,...

    A federal judge on Thursday threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt after discovering that the Trump administration attempted to transfer a woman and her daughter out of the country while an appeal hearing for their deportation was underway. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the American Civil Liberty Union's (ACLU) request for an emergency order to halt the expedited removal of immigrants seeking asylum from domestic abuse and gang violence after he learned the government had put a plaintiff in the case and her daughter on a flight to Central America.

    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.

  • Sessions rips federal judge for 'improperly' reinstating DACA, 'eviscerating' executive power

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday unloaded on a federal judge who ordered the administration to reinstate the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy last week, saying the ruling was "improper" and vowing to keep up enforcement efforts against illegal immigration "aggressively." Sessions added that the judge had effectively "eviscerated" the legal authority of the executive branch and Congress, and strongly suggested the administration would appeal the ruling. The Trump administration announced last year it would end DACA, which was implemented by the Obama administration using executive authority and protects illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children...

Larry Klayman, legal counsel for Cliven Bundy, issued a statement on behalf of Bundy vowing to fight the DOJ’s attempt to retry his client for his role in the 2014 standoff. Klayman is the founder of Judicial Watch and is a former prosecutor. “My client and friend Cliven Bundy is confident that the Ninth Circuit will affirm Judge Navarro’s dismissal,” Larry Klayman, legal counsel...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) warned Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday to stay out of negotiations on criminal justice reform legislation because he helped stop President Trump from firing him. “With all that I have done to help Sessions, to keep the president from firing him, I think Sessions ought to stay out of it," Grassley, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters. Asked how he helped Sessions, a former Judiciary Committee chairman, Grassley noted that in June 2017 "the suggestion [of firing Sessions] was coming and I told the White House I don't have time to have a...

    Nationwide, proceeds from sales of seized property (homes, cars, etc.) go to the seizers. And under a federal program, state and local law enforcement can partner with federal authorities in forfeiture and reap up to 80 percent of the proceeds. This is called — more Orwellian newspeak — “equitable sharing.” No crime had been committed in the Sourovelises’ house, but the title of the case against them was Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. 12011 Ferndale St. Somehow, a crime had been committed by the house. In civil forfeiture, it suffices that property is suspected of having been involved in a crime....

    You can't hand over the evidence that makes up your case to the people you are investigating. You may have noticed over the past year there is a formal dance underway between the Department of Justice and the Congressional oversight committees over release of documents related to the 2016 election and the multiple investigations it spawned. Congress requests documents, and the DOJ then spends months dragging it’s feet before responding. The department then often refuses to hand over what’s requested, or only does so in a highly redacted form. As this process has dragged on, a popular narrative has arisen...

    What if I were to tell you that there is a political issue that galvanizes young voters? An issue that unites libertarians, independents, and African-Americans? An issue with bipartisan power, that works not only in cities, but has demonstrated strength in red states like Kentucky and West Virginia? It’s an issue likely to generate cases to be heard by the Supreme Court in the next decade and one on which the Trump administration’s leading law enforcement official—Attorney General Jeff Sessions—is already on the losing side politically. Given all that, you would think this issue would be a central part of...
