Skip to comments.Jeff Sessions letter to Alabama on recusal and President Trump
Posted on 05/13/2020 9:13:01 PM PDT by ransomnote
As the world knows, the President disagreed with me on recusal, but I did what the law required me to do. I was a central figure in the campaign and was also a subject of and witness in the investigation and could obviously not legally be involved in investigating myself. If I had ignored and broken the law, the Democrats would have used that to severely damage the President.
Some have asked, why take the job as Attorney General if I knew I would have to recuse myself from the investigation? I knew no such thing. I wasnt informed of Comeys secret investigation until after I became Attorney General, and the investigation wasnt publicly confirmed by the FBI until weeks after my recusal.
Knowing of the Presidents disagreement with my decision, I tendered my resignation in writing the morning after Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel. But President Trump chose not to accept it, and he asked me to continue to serve as his Attorney General and to help him Make America Great Again.
The investigation was a disruptive and prolonged fiasco for America and especially for President Trump, and a massive waste of money chasing the deepstate myth of Russian collusion. Recently disclosed documents also reveal the extent of former FBI Director James Comeys underhanded efforts to undermine our President.
One thing you may not know is that I advised from the beginning of the administration that Comey should be removed and the FBI given a fresh start. I concluded that Comey was driven by ego, lacked self-discipline, and lacked the judgement necessary to lead an agency as critical as the FBI, as was evidenced by the completely improper way he declined to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
The end result of the Mueller investigation is that the President (and I) were fully exonerated, so much so that the subsequent Ukraine impeachment witch hunt did not even mention the phony Russian collusion idea.
My principles, like my faith, are immovable and non-negotiable. I believe it is always right to do the right thing. My opponent, Tommy Tuberville, calls that weakness, which reveals his true lack of integrity.
rue strength and courage are found in the determination to do the right thing, even when you know the consequences may be painful. You can always count on me to do my best to do the right thing, for you, for the state of Alabama, and for the United States of America. I will never go wobbly on you.
I believe President Trump is a great President who is steadily making progress for America, despite relentless opposition. My support for his agenda is not about me, or even about him. Its about doing the right thing for the country I so love. I have given my entire life to the support of our conservative ideals and to stopping the radical left from their attempts to redefine, and thereby destroy, America. I always have, I always will.
I endorsed President Trump because he had the incredible strength of will and the guts to stand up for the right things, for ending illegal immigration, for protecting American workers, and for stopping endless wars. Im glad I did.
After the President dismissed me as Attorney General, I did not say a cross word about him, as I thought that would be dishonorable.
The great people of Alabama support the President enthusiastically, and we also make our own decisions on who to send to the US Senate.
This just means we are strong, and no one tells us what to do or how to vote. Were Alabama, its just who we are. After all, its our vote, not Washingtons.
Mr. Tuberville is an opportunist who isnt from here. He stopped here for work for a while, and moved on, eventually retiring in Florida. He doesnt know the first thing about Alabama. He says the President is wrong on China, says we must import foreign workers to take American jobs, and up until a few months ago, he said he favors amnesty for illegal immigrants. If you dont like his position on an issue, just wait a few weeks and he will change it. His house is built on sand.
Alabamians have long resisted pressure from people in Washington telling them how to vote. In fact, Alabamas motto is We Dare Defend Our Rights.
The folks in Washington have been wrong about Alabama before, every time. We make our own decisions.
We will vote overwhelmingly to give President Trump a second term, and we will choose who we send to the Senate. The people of Alabama do not have to choose between voting for the President and voting for me, they can do both.
When I return to the Senate, I look forward to helping the President build the wall, protect American workers, and fundamentally reset our relationship with Communist China.
He could have resigned and cleared the way for an AG who could be active.
I will never forgive Jeff for his fatally-naive recusal. But I would still vote for him over the open-borders retard Tuberville.
Well Jeff, you haven’t answered the question as to why you didn’t tell President Trump beforehand, that you were going to recuse yourself before you did it.
Sorry but Sessions is looking more dirty and gutless every day.
We got all this “Sessions is coming,” and “Trust Sessions” nonsense here, while he handed off the nation’s premier legal office to traitors and got us stuck in the mud swamp. He talked about pot and little else. He was and is worthless.
Sessions should have resigned and given the President the opportunity to appoint a fully functional AG.
Instead Sessions recused himself, paving the road to a Special Counsel, and then used his friends in the Senate as a shield against termination.
Sessions showed no honor then, and he’s showing no honor now.
Shut up you duplicitous sack of crap.
I hope at least one person on this thread bothers to read the article and discovers that Jeff Sessions was not aware that he was being investigated by James Comey when he accepted the position from President Trump.
Once he accepted, he was notified he was under investigation and he couldn’t be in charge of investigating himself, so he recused, just as the deep state plotted.
Yeah, he did answer that question.
Wonder how stupid an honest person would have to be to not see that.
Lies! Recusal is a personal decision, and Sessions couldve withdrew it at any time, and he wouldnt.
Sessions also refused to appoint a Special Counsel to Investigate the Coup, saying it was not extraordinary!
Sessions appointed Fraud John Huber to sit on the case and run out the Clock. Fraud Huber did nothing.
Sessions also is reported to have agreed to take out Trump with Rosenstein.
Sessions epitomizes what is wrong with DC.
You were asked a hypothtical question dumbass! Your answer to Al Frankin should have been “ I dont anwser hypotheticals!” Piss on Sessions. Deep state cancer! Now if we could only get rid of Graham before the election!
Again, reading the article reveals that Jeff Sessions was not aware that he was being investigated by James Comey until AFTER he accepted the position from Trump, just as the deep state planned. Once Sessions accepted the position, he was notified that he was the object of the investigation he was, as AG, expected to oversee. Of COURSE he had to recuse.
The Trust Sessions people were proved wrong on every single count to an amazing degree.
The DoJ under Sessions treated Trump as the enemy.
The Fraud John Huber - an Obama Appointee, says it all.
Nothing stopped him from appointing a Special Counsel to Investigate the Coup.
N O T H I N G.
Trust the plan man. Dont you see where we at?
Seems like a nice guy, but he never understood that we’re in a war with the left. He probably still doesn’t.
We need warriors.
“He could have resigned and cleared the way for an AG who could be active.”
I despise the man.
It’s unfortunate if he wins the primary that the fine folks in Alabama would have to vote for him to keep the seat Republican.
I truly hope he loses the primary and I pray the fine folks in Alabama go to the polls in droves to vote for the replacement Republican.
Got to keep that seat Republican.
And Sessions? He most definitely has something to hide and he cannot be trusted, even if he has to be voted into office.
