Reports: Attorney General Sessions to Unveil “New Leak Investigations” on Friday…

Forgive the epic level of cynicism this media reporting elicits. However, it just strikes as far too convenient that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is anticipated to reveal ‘new leak investigations’ after several weeks of people asking why ‘no leak investigations‘?

Two weeks ago Sessions’ defenders were claiming a monumental investigation into leaking was only days away. Those days came and went. The announcement goal posts were moved to last Friday. Again, nothing.  Now the triple-dog swear promise for this Friday. “Major Crackdown”, uh huh… Here’s hoping.

(Via Fox) Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to announce a major crackdown on leakers this week, in the latest sign the administration is pushing to run a tighter ship as John Kelly seizes the reins as White House chief of staff.

One of the first tasks facing the retired general and former Homeland Security boss will be plugging the leaks at the White House that his predecessor struggled to stanch.

“If Reince [Priebus] couldn’t control those leaks … then he was the one who was ultimately responsible, and General Kelly was brought in to make sure those leaks do not continue,” former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday.

[…] But beyond the White House effort to halt nettlesome leaks about behind-the-scenes feuding, Sessions is expected to go further with an announcement on criminal leak investigations — specifically, concerning news reports that published sensitive intelligence material, according to officials who have been briefed on the matter.

Sessions plans to hold a press conference on leaks on Friday. The announcement may provide more of an overview of what the DOJ hopes to accomplish rather than specific prosecutions at this stage, Fox News is told.  (read more)

  1. “In addition to deciding to recuse himself from the Trump-Russia probe, Sessions also pledged BEFORE HIS CONFIRMATION to recuse himself from any additional investigations into Clinton.

    Sessions said IN HIS CONFIRMATION HEARING that because of his politically charged comments about Clinton during the campaign, “I do believe that that could place my objectivity in question.”

    “I believe the proper thing for me to do would be for me to recuse myself.” ‘

    So, Mr. President, why didn’t you throw him under the bus BEFORE he was sworn in? You said that if you had known that he’d recuse himself, you wouldn’t have appointed him. He told you BEFORE he was sworn in.

      AG Sessions also made numerous comments against rape, murder, larceny, drug trafficking, illegal immigration, and espionage. He should recuse himself from all cases if those charges are alleged.

      • Surely you must realize that there is a difference between denouncing criminal activities in general and prosecuting someone whom you have said in the past you believed to have committed criminal acts. That would show extreme bias. How would you like to appear in a court where the judge had said that he thought you were guilty before you got there?

        Jeff Sessions showed great wisdom in recusing himself.

          Excellent point. Remember the “La Raza” judge? We all called for him to step off Trump’s civil case, because of his support for illegal immigration, since Trump had promised to crack down on it. We can’t have two standards. Rule of law. Sessions, having stood on stage while crowds yelled “Lock her up!” could not then credibly investigate her.

          And apparently Trump’s remarks were just to feed the idiot news. I think he has a plan for Sessions and in the meantime Sessions has started up on Susan Rice and has been told to go ahead on the Clintons. Maybe the plan is to move Sessions to HLS as he is great on immigration, and hire a new AG, fire the Deputy AG and Muellar so all can move ahead faster and more efficiently. I pray that this be so.

    Lets face it, Sessions is not the man for this job. American people are not going to benefit as they should in terms of Justice. Trump needs to hire the kind of people who built his fabulous properties and together made Trump a Billionaire. In retrospect, how in the World can one expect excellence for someone whose career has been a government facilitator in some shape, manner and form..
