    Default Sessions considering second special counsel

    What does he need, a hammer to the head? The complaints in both the house and senate haven't went away. Slowly but surely more and more info comes out about some big names in the Dem party. And now, finally, Sessions is considering it? LOL So long as Grassley and others stay on top of this, and others push as well, all that matters. And if it's the Washington Post, it must really be getting some legs for them to write about it.

    Sessions considering second special counsel to investigate Republican concerns, letter shows

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post.

    The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September called for Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate concerns he had related to the 2016 election and its aftermath.

    The list of matters he wanted probed was wide ranging but included the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, various dealings of the Clinton Foundation and several matters connected to the purchase of the Canadian mining company Uranium One by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. Goodlatte took particular aim at former FBI director James B. Comey, asking for the second special counsel to evaluate the leaks he directed about his conversations with President Trump, among other things.

    In response, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd wrote that Sessions had “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” and that those prosecutors would “report directly to the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel.”

    Trump has repeatedly criticized his Justice Department for not aggressively probing a variety of conservative concerns. He said recently that officials there “should be looking at the Democrats” and that it was “very discouraging” they were not “going after Hillary Clinton.” On the campaign trail, Trump’s supporters frequently chanted “Lock her up!” at the mention of Clinton’s name.

    “Hopefully they are doing something, and at some point, maybe we are going to all have it out,” Trump said recently.

    Sessions is a complete disappointment. He should be fired immediately, and if I was the president, I'd fire him, Mueller and Rosenstien. The president runs the DOJ. He is the head of it. He has the power to fire people in the DOJ as he sees fit. He's the only one that can do it.

    "An Example of What AG Jeff Sessions Refuses To Address…"



    "Many opinions are visible on the subject of President Trump questioning the focus and competency of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. With that in mind perhaps it’s worthwhile pointing out a simple example of internal DOJ corruption that AG Sessions is intentionally avoiding."





    Good read and reminder:
