      With all due respect, tell that to the innocent people locked up in prison in USA who have been freed after evidence tampering by officials has been discovered. Tell that to the millions who died in the Gulag of Soviet Russia. Tell that to the Chinese who were run down by the tanks in Tiananmen Square. Any sane person will fear government overreach and corrupt officials. Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum? Waco? The Waco massacre on the Texan ranch of a religious cult in 1993 was the end result of a 50-day siege in which 76 men, women and children lost their lives after federal officials set fire to an isolated compound.

      One can be innocent but one can be set up. Mueller also can look and find a minute problem. A many of good innocent man was hanged because of a zealot .

      There are many people out there who believe something similar about searches and seizures. If one has nothing to hide, then they don’t need the protections offered by the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

      I hear that a lot lately. It’s worrisome because it’s thinking like that that helped the Patriot Act to sail through Congress.

    I really don’t have a take on Jeff Sessions one way or another. I didn’t see him as the Attorney General when he was selected, though I did expect him to head an agency with a high rank in the Cabinet.
    When he recused himself, I felt very disappointed because it came across to me as a subtle implication that something, however innocuous, occurred on during the Campaign. (Fueling the fire of the opposition.) I truly wish he would not have done that. And, then today, he refused to address the questions posed concerning President’ Trump’s remarks. He came across as bit arrogant to me. I am disappointed.

          You contradicted yourself several times in your two comments. You said you didn’t have a take, then said what your “take” was. You implied the recusal was because of “something” happening, even though that is not what he said and that’s not the way recusals work.

          Not sure why you are disappointed that he didn’t answer questions about what his boss said about his performance to another person. He wouldn’t fuel the gossip? That’s a good thing.

          Sherlock I agree with you. Just because DT told the NYT he made a mistake with Sessions does not make it ironclad true. DT is so far ahead of us, it is his MO to do such things for the purpose to deflect their attention (see Bannon). He has done it continually. Those rubes are so entrenched in it in their ideological de jour(s) they can’t see where he is ultimately taking them. Our Man Trump serves them up another nothingness burger which in turn leads them to being confounded, confused and clamoring.

                Mueller and his team have more conflicts of interest than Session did with Trump but he is the one in charge of some fishing expedition into Trump. Why disarm yourself hoping the other side will play fair, not asking Session to be corrpt , put he should been the gate keeper, not deep state moles.

                Give me a break, we have democrats and deep state and fellow republicans practically committing a coup against a Preisdent before he was a few months in office, the one person that Trump had in the corrupt Justuce Department was Sessions and he recused himself on anything to do with Trump, after Trump spent capital get him confirmed,

                Remember Sessions was in senate 20 years, that didn’t stop his fellow democrats from calling him unfit to be AG , calling him racist and then going after him on Russia. He himself was a Russian mole until proven otherwise. Session is worried about making people that didn’t nominate him, don’t vote for him and would throw him to the wolves in heart beat, happy .. that’s why he picked deep state actor like Ronsenstein as his number 2

          I was very much in favor of Jeff Sessions’ appointment, but then he goes and recuses himself from all things regarding hillary, the campaign, and the Russian fauxtroversy!
          That doesn’t leave a whole lot! (Yeah, yeah, I know, the fraud, the cyber stuff, but there are some really blatant issues that Sessions, because of his recusals, will not touch.)

          It’s nothing personal against Sessions. It’s not an “aversion” to him. It’s just that his actions have left POTUS and family too vulnerable to the uniparty’s witch hunt and attempts to take him and his agenda down.

        Howie, unfortunately I hit the Liked and regret it because there are many we elected/hired in DC and they are definitely doing all they can to protect their interests and money by blocking or trying to remove Trump from the WH and continuing to screw us at the same time. I do not believe Sessions is against Trump at all, but I don’t have any concern in getting rid of the Deputy of DOJ and Muellar as both are problematical and connected to Comey and others who are against Trump and America. However, house cleaning has begun with Trump making changes and we will see a lot more. Sessions in the meantime is busy doing a lot of investigation/searching and Susan Rice is now on the block and we can expect to see more.

Currently digging under every rock with taxpayer money to destroy a duly elected president. Trump will be forced to end it himself, a good soldier AG would have nipped it in the bud.

    President Trump made it clear that he is watching Mueller and Rosenstein and they better do their Fiduciary Duty and find the Corruption and not follow a political legal fake tail. If Mueller and Rosenstein does not follow proper Prosecutorial Policies and Procedures for investigating corruption by following the facts (Comey, Leaks, Unmasking) he will hold them legally Responsible for their actions, disclose their improper actions to the press and fire them. One of many red lines is fishing into President Trump Personal Business Affairs.

    Sundance generally has a calming effect on us, hopefully he will share his thoughts about this matter, many of us are waiting. I know I am.

    We might need to examine the last 6 months in hindsight to see some of the mistakes that have been made, and how we can correct them.

    Many on this board have been conflicted about Sessions for months. Same with Pence. There are many that really like-love Sessions and Pence and don’t see any problem with them. All of our concern is meant to protect Trump.

    When Trump’s transition team nominated Rosenstein to be deputy attorney general, law professor Jonathan H. Adler wrote on the law blog Volokh Conspiracy that he was a “reassuring choice” — “and one that should be completely free of controversy.”

        I think disgust is too strong of a word. Disappointed, perhaps. Sessions is too honorable of a man to want to be accused of not recusing himself for being too close to the candidate. The same does not apply to Mueller, obviously. Sessions was in between a rock and a hard place. It’s unfortunate.
        Nevertheless, the agenda must go on. Trumps sees the outcome. Trump believes in the outcome. Trump knows the outcome. Mr. Sessions wavered. Mr. Session may have believed he was doing the right thing, but it actually prolonged the inevitable. At a time where The Swamp™ is using delay tactics, prolonging the inevitable is not conducive to The Agenda™.
        I will be sorry to see Mr. Sessions go, he is truly a remarkable man. I think this is why he is staying on until a successor is named. There are other things that need to be dealt with besides Russia, Russia, Russia. There is no sense in leaving the AG spot open until a nominee can be confirmed, that could take years. If the Swamp Critters™ want him out, they’ll have to confirm a successor.
        This war will not end with a mere ex-first lady going to prison. The attack on Trump’s family means Obama and Bubba too. It’s going to get real ugly, real fast.

        It’s like a pride takeover, the cubs get the worst of it and any lioness that tries too hard to protect them, well, they get it too. This pride has Trump protecting it along with a coalition. That would be us.

    Rush Limbaugh’s theory is interesting, and…maybe.

    However, I’ve seen Trump fire people. He doesn’t do it by hinting he wants you to resign as Rush thinks. Look at his past with Sally Yates, Flynn, and Comey, etc. He just fires (sometimes without telling you first). He doesn’t care about political ramifications.

      I thought Sessions response to President Trump’s comments were over rehearsed. He was pleased with himself after he got them out. He did not answer the questions directly, he wanted to get out that he was staying. Then he was satisfied.

      FBI guy McCabe clearly sucks up to both of them. Sessions and Rosenstein don’t see him as a threat.

      Rosenstein looked pleased with himself. Definitely thinks he has the upper hand.

        Yes, I remember that night. I was watching Fox Business and it felt like they took forever to admit that President Trump won. They followed that stupid speech from Podesta which was completely a mess. Everyone knew President Trump had won, they just couldn’t bring themselves to say it.

        They are still doing it. Still won’t admit that President Trump is everything America has wanted or needed in 30 years.

    One of the worst failures for any manager is to lose control of their department. This is an ironclad rule even for the lowest level managers.

    By that standard, Jeff Sessions has been a failure as AG. A complete and total failure.

    Sessions has allowed the department underneath him to declare all out war on Trump. That NEVER should have been allowed to happen. Never. Sessions should have blocked this before it even got started. His very first day on the job should have cleaned house at the DOJ. Get rid of the black hats and stock up with white hats.

    At this stage, Sessions needs to do one of two things to recover from his blunder and to restore order

    1 – he needs to rescind his recusal and then fire Mueller. And, if, by chance, this happens to result in Sessions eventually being forced out as AG, then so be it. Sessions must not sit idly by while his boss is being unfairly smeared and do nothing.

    2 – If Sessions cannot do option #1 then he should resign and get out of the way

      Sessions did as much as any single person in this country to get Trump elected. First and only US Senator to come out and campaign tirelessly for him, stood by him at every crisis point during the campaign, when everybody in sight was jumping ship. And he’s done his best to be an honest AG and follow the law, as Trump and Sessions promised he would. And for that you want to dump him?

        After he finishes with the Cartels and illegals yes I do want him gone.

        The remaining lawlessness the DOJ has to deal with is Russia. Sessions has recused himself, so he has to go. Here is the list:

        1. Uranium One
        2. Bill Clinton’s speech to the Russian bank for $500,000
        3. HSBC bank laundering Russian money, Cartel money and terrorist money while Hillary was SOS and James Comey was on the HSBC Board.
        4. Canada’s role with Russia to bring the Uranium One shipments thru Canada without proper documentation during the Obama admin.
        5. Russia’s failure to clean up the Uranium contamination they created in Wyoming and other state’s and the EPA’s failure to make them so it. Was there collusion and corruption that allowed Russia to contaminate American land and water?

        Shall I go on? I could make it to 20 points. 20 points that Sessions can NEVER address. Oh, right, sure Rosenstein will do that…..before, or after he has kissed the Globalist ring for permission?

    Lordy Lordy Lordy! I can’t believe how little faith some of you Treepers have! It is so very funny to watch when President Trump and Bannon make some 3D moves … they aim at the SWAMP but sooo many people here at the CTH are collateral damage!

    B(Bannon) and T(Trump) have been working on this from day one. There is no way they did not know Sessions was going to recuse. It was reported by the FAKE NEWS that Trump had a fit when he learned of the recusal. That was B&T playing kabuki theatre. By recusing this freed up Sessions to do an amazing amount of work in 6 months … sanctuary cities going down, MS-13 going down, muslim scammers going down, DACA going out, pedophiles going down, Internet dark site down… Meanwhile Sessions has multiple secret Grand Juries running…

    And that is how it went for 6 months. So now, why would President Trump grant an interview to the one media org he hates most … The New York Slimes …. and then give them the most explosive bomb of the last couple of months? Think about it. The New York Slimes!

    Sessions was so very cool, calm and collected in todays statement ….. if he was more into kabuki he would have seemed a little flustered but that just isn’t in him. The NYT has been played again!, the MSM has been played again! and many, many treepers here have been played due to collateral damage.

    There were rumors last week …. Christmas in July, major development coming on the 27th. B&T, in co-operation with Sessions has set this all up for one simple reason. The Grand Juries have delivered and Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions is about to begin the BIGGEST prosecution of his career …. and he, Sessions, wanted B&T to distance themselves as much as possible!

    Proof is in the pudding …. PDJT made this ‘massive’ announcement to the New York Slimes (his favorite trolling victim). Sessions knew and was prepared with a beautiful statement today … I am doing my job and will continue to do so. But the ABSOLUTE PROOF is the statement today by PDJT …. I have total confidence in Jeff Sessions.

    Now all this is only my personal theory ,,,, but my advice to you all is NEVER doubt President Trump and buy more popcorn! God Bless President Donald J. Trump!

    Wow, the usual “toe-the-line” and “you-do-not-have-the-right-to-free-speech-in-Muh-Forum” crowd is out in force tonight. Folks, keep your collective shirt on. Ad hominem is not a proper argument.

    FACT: President Trump gave an interview to the NYT and expressed his disappointment with AG Sessions, Deputy AG Rosenstein and Special Counsel Mueller. He did so in plain language, on camera.

    The rest is speculation, interpretation and wishful thinking.

    FACT: AG Sessions publicly refused to resign.

    FACT: the WH issued a statement that the President has “full confidence” in AG Sessions.

    What happens next remains to be seen.

    My personal opinion, which is just an opinion of a regular, non-activist, non-partisan, non-superinformed, non-supersmart person, is my President is sick and tired of all this BS he is dealing with 24/7. Mueller will be meddling and sniffing around for years to come, giving countless ammo to the opposition during the 2020 elections and beyond. There will always be showdows and unnecessary distractions where should be none had Sessions not recuse himself.

    To those who are dreaming about the big hammers coming down, I wish you were right! But please keep in mind that AG Sessions recused himself from everything conserving Hillary and the campaign so don’t expect anything from that direction. Unless you are confident that Rosenstein, Mueller and his merry band of Clinton donors are planning to drop that big hammer on the Clintons and Obama.

    We shall see what the newly minted FBI Director will bring to the table. Lower your expectations and if you don’t want to be disappointed once again.

    A lot of people here are agonizing about Sessions’ recusal and how this gives Mueller’s investigation no limits. According to several articles I’ve read since December 2016, Donald J. Trump and company has allegedly been the target of Obama’s intel surveillance since at least 2012. They found NOTHING. They found so much nothing that deepstate operatives were forced to produce a fake Dossier that many say was created by KGB Russian intel.

    Furthermore, POTUS has been under an IRS audit at least as far back as 2015 and probably earlier. An audit usually covers the tax records for the previous 7 years. That means that Obama’s politicized IRS has been combing through at least 7 years of DJT’s tax filings for 2 years now. They found nothing-even as the impending presidential election loomed ever closer. If anything had been found, I don’t doubt for one second that they would have persuaded some low level IRS Obama lover to leak it a long time ago. Think about it: Every bureaucrat in D.C. has probably done some oppositional research of some kind on DJT in the past two years. That’s a lot of motivated eyes having a lot of access to all kinds of data –just to come up with absolutely nothing.

    To find any evidence of wrongdoing, it must first exist. If after all these years of searching they come up with something damning to POTUS, I will assume that it’s a manufactured product of deep-state. They won’t succeed. God has been known to throw a monkey wrench into the best of man’s schemes.

      Thank you for your reminder! President Trump is known as an honest man. When giving honest answers to questions he often goes into the past to present his reasons. IMO this is what he did in this NYT interview.

      He also let us know he is aware of the conflicts of interest on the part of Rosenstein and Mueller, and has more details to add if they get out of line.

      I am praying for President Trump to be victorious and for his enemies to be destroyed.

    Color me naive, but I think Trump has already put his pieces in place before he dared Mueller to take that step last night.

    I think he is already 7 steps ahead of Mueller, and that Sessions is taking care of several big fires first before dropping the boom on Rosenstein and Mueller.

    By the way…how long until the Senate confirms Rosenstein’s replacement? The Repubs can squash all this pretty quickly with timely confirmations…if they wanted to.

    ” I found that the clearnet IP address 194.9.94.82 mentioned in the JavaScript file (lchudifyeqm4ldjj.onion/market.js) is owned by “Loopia AB,” a Swedish hosting company.”

    “Exposure of the possible real IP address of the server, which is supposed to be hidden behind the Tor Onion Router, is one of the biggest mistakes Dream Market operators might have made”
