Report: Attorney General Jeff Sessions Recuses Himself From Uranium One Investigation….

If this stunning report is true it confirms many opinions in how AG Jeff Sessions is entirely incapable of carrying out the duty of a U.S. Attorney General.   The report comes from Breitbart Media conveying information received from congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

According to the information from representative Gaetz, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced to members of the House Judiciary Committee he was recusing himself from anything to do with the 2016 election, Russia, or any participant or ancillary member attached to the 2016 election, including Hillary Clinton, which also includes any prior activity from any person or interest -regardless of time of occurrence- that intersects with any person, entity or individual in the sphere of the 2016 election.

Breitbart […]  Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he and other House Judiciary Committee Republicans had met with Sessions at the Justice Department on September 28 in advance of an upcoming committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein later this month.

Gaetz said that when he asked Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the 2010 Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS, the attorney general stood up, said he could not discuss the matter because he had recused himself, and walked out of the room, leaving them with a group of Rosenstein staffers “who showed no interest.”

“He said that anything that had to do with 2016 election, or Russia, or the candidates in the 2016 election, fell under the scope of his recusal, and he left the room,” Gaetz said.

“It was Sessions’ position that his recusal on the Russia matter divorced him from any oversight on Uranium One and Fusion GPS. That’s troubling. Sessions’ recusal is a function of his involvement in the Trump campaign. In no world does that impact his judgment as it relates to Fusion GPS and Uranium One. But he views the recusal more broadly. That’s troubling because that puts Rosenstein in charge,” he said.

Gaetz said Rosenstein’s staffers provided “no answers” and “no timeline for answers.”  (read more)

The challenges within the outlined position of AG Sessions is that virtually everyone in Washington DC is connected, in some way, to the election of 2016 and the outcome therein.  After all, DC is a political capital and all of the participants within DC are connected to politics and elections.

If AG Jeff Sessions is recusing himself from any professional & legal role within the DOJ as it pertains to anything political he’s essentially useless in the face of any political scandal or unlawful activity by any member or participant therein.

If this is indeed the position of Attorney General Jeff Sesssions he should resign from his appointment and allow someone who can fill the role to take his place.   This is absurd.

    Yes! He needs to be replaced asap. If trump fires him, he has to fire rosenstein. Is anyone below him a trump supporter? Who would run the DOJ in the interim? Could that person be appointed by trump?

    He said anything that had to do with the election (not primaries) of 2016 or Russia (during the election) or candidates. I don’t see the connection to uranium one. Read statements careful. Words matter.

    Now that we’re ready for Sessions’ head on a (figurative) pike (myself included) it might be sobering to consider this reasoned alternative presented by @Imperator_Rex3:

    Long tweet roll short: Manafort and GP were Fusion moles. Trump knew. Flynn told him. Dossier shamelessly used to spy and unmask Trump campaign. Mueller working for Trump. McCabe and Comey black hats of FBI.

    Big storm coming.

      I have thought for a long time now that Trump and Sessions specifically chose Mueller because they knew he was involved in this and that it would come out during this investigation. Sessions had to recuse himself so that this would have to go through a congressional investigation- the only way I think it will get out to the public and have no “political fingerprints” from the Trump DOJ. There is a reason Trump has kept Sessions there and allowed it play this way. Brilliant.

    I’ve understood (albeit sometimes belatedly) everything that’s happened thus far. Indeed, I called the Dem-Russia smokescreen and coverup from it’s inception.

    That said, I find this AG’s attitude and actions perplexing and confounding. Having SWORN to uphold and defend the laws of the United States, it appears he is shirking his duties ON PURPOSE!

    And Tucker Carlson’s speculation may be right…

    What would it take, an sttempted takeover of our Govt by rogue elements of the FBI and Intel community holdovers to wake up the AG?

    One could argue that’s exactly what happened!

    • I’m no doctor or a shrink, but I’m beginning to wonder if Sessions has some age-related mental issues that are not yet developed enough to warrant medical inquiries and tests. Maybe within a year… if he lasts that long in the office.

  10. I cannot voice my dissatisfaction enough that there has been no update provided on this fallacy. We rant and rave about how the progressive left-wing continuously justifies their false statements in support of their personal ideology and beliefs, and yet, here we are, apparently doing the SAME thing!!!!

    The article indicates there is not a second recusal by Jeff Sessions on the Uranium 1 issue, but a broad interpretation of the first recusal from all things “Russia”. I’m not convinced yet on where Sessions stands.

  12. So why doesn’t Trump just fire Sessions? Either an acting AG from the compromised DOJ would be far worse, or Mueller is actually doing all of the swamp investigations.

    If Sessions were my employee, he review would state that he underperforms and does not meet expectations. His performance must improve for him to be retained in his present position.

    I have heard very little about what Jeff Sessions is actually doing as Attorney General, other than promoting the so-called war on opioids which is deliberately targeted at doctors and their chronic pain patients. Meanwhile, Mexican gangs are importing thousands of pounds of heroin and Mexican made fentanyl which are the real culprits in overdosing deaths. This is focusing on a small and more easily managed part of a much larger problem and endangering people in the process.

    I have also heard that Sessions was complaining about not being able to gain control over some of the sections of Justice, like the Civil Rights division. If true, this tells me he has poor employee management skills and wasn’t ready for this big a job.

    His recusal from the Russian elections influence was unnecessary and in retrospect unwise. When he accepted the job of AG, he was no longer a free agent senator but became an appointee with a single boss, the president. We don’t know if his performance in the job so far has pleased or displeased his boss. If fourth dimension chess is being played here, it is invisible to the onlooker and has produced no discernable outcomes so far.

    If Jeff Sessions is in way over his head as AG, the honorable thing to do would be to resign. To save face and dignity, resigning after Christmas and declaring a desire to spend more time with family and grandkids is always an acceptable reason.

    But what do i know? I’m just a voter out here in flyover country. So I will watch and wait like almost everyone else.

  20. All hope is lost if Congress has to do the investigations and “prosecutions” for the country. When Trump says the judicial system is a joke and disgrace, I agree on principle of ridiculousness. People use public office for personal profit, simultaneously conducting treason ……. walk away Scott Free. Someone files their taxes improperly out of ignorance ,,,,,,, sent to federal prison for tax evasion.

    i have said this before but reading the comments its worth repeating, the deep state covered all bases even in the 100-1 shot trump would win so they assigned sessions a senator who is the establishment to spy on trump, example, in football when you have a quarterback who runs and throws its hard to defense him so you assign a spy, a player who’s only job is to watch the qb, forget everyone else unless they have the ball but do not take your eyes off the qb.. this is what sessions was to do to trump, notice when no other senator would dare back trump there was jeff, he never pushed for a wall but now he was all in, lock her up he chanted with the crowd, what looked like a good friend and an ally to trump was instead a plant, if trump loses sessions just goes retires and if by some miracle he wins then sessions pushes for the AG and the swamp endorses him, trump thinking he was with him from the beginning and trustworthy nominates him, the people who praised him a year earlier now turn on him so trump supporters push for him, after getting confirmed he talks trump into backing rothenstein a liberal, trump dosnt know him but agrees, then the fake accusations start accusing sessions of colluding, all staged, trump says do not recuse but sessions instead announces after talking to rothenstein he will recuse himself, now rothenstein can go to work to take down trump, he gets mueller, and his gang with the full backing of the deep state, trump realizes he is screwed and was played so he decides to send sessions to homeland security but the deep state immediately threatens impeachment, dont worry says kelly your safe im here now, and trump is surrounded by the deep state so what can he do? fire sessions = impeachment, no he is going about what he can to keep his promises, waiting for the 2018 elections to replace some of the swamp it is a long process and he figures he has 8 years to accomplish it, but what you are seeing in alabama is a warning to any outsider, if you think you can play in this game and not be on our team we will destroy you, this is the warning for the other trump supporters who want to run meanwhile the uni-party will play good cop bad cop with the tax bill and health care and you can forget funding for the wall, i truly think if moore wins and mcconnell bars him you will see the beginning of a civil war, it may be needed to save this country, trump bucked the system and they are determined not to let it happen again.. notice the uni-party posing as republicans would rather have a democrat from alabama pretending its about morals, yet menendez is on trial for among other things child prostitution, and graham testified on his behalf, and not one republican has come out against menendez…
