AG Jeff Sessions: “‘Looks Like’ is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel”…

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) frustratingly questions his good friend Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the standard for the DOJ to appoint a special counsel and/or investigate the brutally obvious legal issues/implications surrounding the “Steele Dossier”, the Clinton campaign and the weaponization of the intelligence community (FBI) to undermine political opposition (Trump).

.

As you can see above, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reluctant to investigate based on appearances. The end result of Sessions’ position is to extend the investigative responsibility to congress. The end result of congress conducting investigations is the road to nowhere, See: Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, VA Scandal etc….

Sessions is advocating for the familiar; for the swamp retainment system, or as I prefer to call it: Flak and Countermeasures.

Politically speaking, the deployment of countermeasures is a tactic used by professional politicians in Washington DC to counter incoming public inquiry and protect themselves from anger expressed by the electorate.

Weaponized government takes action and creates victims. Previously it was us (IRS etc.), in the latest examples it is Donald Trump.  It doesn’t matter who is the victim, the strategy is the same – the strategy is simple.  Countermeasures are politicians assigned a role to control the incoming righteous inquiry from voters who find out about the weaponized or corrupt governmental action.

1.) The electorate become aware of a political issue or action; often illegal.

2.)  The electorate become angry.

3.) DC needs to protect itself.

4.) Countermeasures are assigned and deployed to delay, obfuscate and create the illusion of investigation of the illegal governmental action.

5.) Electorate watch.

6.) Investigation goes nowhere.

7.) Countermeasure deployment successful.

Repeat.

Recent examples:

The countermeasures are deployed to act as shiny distractions keeping the larger electorate satisfied something is being done.  Countermeasures are designed to create investigations that go nowhere.

The goal is not resolution or justice; the goal is to deflect, create distraction and eventually dilute/diminish the outrage over time.  Keep kicking the can until it rusts and simply falls apart.

Nothing to see here.  Move along, move along now folks… stop looking at that old stuff… that’s past us… it’s new stuff now… etc.

The political system in Washington DC has become so massive it is now capable of protecting itself.  Any attempt to reduce the influence, scope or size of the system is considered a risk.   The system is, in essence, protecting itself.  Deep State is self-aware.

Political countermeasures are now deployed as human articles of self-preservation.

Cue the audio visual demonstration – NOTE 07:43  (just hit play)

    I know this is a re-post, but doing so makes me feel better. Sorry.

    The good guys better strike first before Mueller does. If he gets the first shot off and it lands close to the President, then any SP or inquiry into U1, Hillary, Comey, et al will look like and be accused of being a political payback.

    For all you people bashing Sessions, I have a question. Did you spend this much time, effort and passion bashing Holder or Lynch? Bashing them day after day for years? If so, I’d like to hear about it.

    As for Sessions public appearances, they are not going to reveal anything and will be so ambiguous that everyone can draw any conclusions that they want from his answers. The man is a lawyer; that’s how they roll. I’ve had enough dealings with lawyers over the years to know how they operate. Sessions is not going to say anything definitive. If he did, whatever cases he is working on will be compromised. They could be ready to arrest HilLIARy tomorrow but we wouldn’t hear it from Sessions in any public hearing.

    Also, the legal process moves very slooooooow. I knew a guy once who was a lawyer. He had to go out of town on a case that had started 7 years previously when he was at another firm. It took 7 years for the case to reach trial. That’s just how it works. If you have dealings with lawyers, they are never in a hurry because the legal process is designed to move slow. So, we may be frustrated at how slow things are moving on cleaning up the corruption but when you look at the ramifications of just what is at stake, Capital crimes, it has to be done right the first time. That means secret and slow. And, as time goes by, more and more of the dirty facts about HilLIARy and the D-Rats are getting out to the public that were not available a year ago.That will only increase day by day. JMHO

            • When I come down on Jeff Sessions, it is not because I dislike him, that I do not respect him or that I think he is evil or even that he has ignoble intentions. However, there are some flies in the Sessions ointment.

              He, quite simply, seems to lack a fire in his gut to do what the American citizenry needs accomplished by an AG in this era of American history.

              He has frustrated my President to the nth degree, and muddled up the MAGA agenda on several promises that P Trump promised the deplorables in his campaign.

              No one had any idea that he would simply recuse himself on about everything that really matters to us. P Trump has said publicly that had he known Sessions was going to recuse himself, Sessions should have just told him this, and he would have nominated someone else for this position. Sessions did not–this was wrong and even borders on the unethical.

              When Sessions recused himself, in the same document he appointed a deputy AG named Dana Boente to act in his stead concerning any case in which Sessions personally might have a conflict of interest. Where is Boente? This guy seems to have just been silenced by the DOJ.

              When Sessions told Jason Chaffetz that he did not intend to investigate the Clintons and that he intended to skate through the AG position into retirement, this appears to be exactly what he meant.

              There are some investigations underway right now according to breaking news on the networks both yesterday and today. However, these appear to be only because P Trump has stayed on his butt and forced these actions out of him–Not due to anything Jeff Sessions wanted.

              Jeff Sessions needs to move down to Gulf Shores AL and retire. I will be glad to buy him a beer the next time I go down there and have some friendly conversation with him, because he was one hell of a Senator, he just sucks in this job……

    You realize in order to get to the “case” phase there was to be indictments. Amazing that Mueller has been at if for a few months, with a fraction of the DOJ staff, and less proof of supposed wrongdoing but still managed to get the gears turning. We don’t even have that.

      C-Span Judicial Council meeting with Sessions 11/14/2017 time marker 4:28-4:34.57 is where your can find Senator Biggs of Arizona’s discussion with Sessions. As frustrated as most of us are Deborah is right. I scanning to find what she was talking about; Sessions appears to be intent on restoring the reputation of the Justice Department by staying the course.

      I also suggest watching how Sessions conducted himself when he answered Trey Goudy’s question. It was after Trey’s allowed time where Sessions didn’t have to respond but did.
      In contrast to the rabid left making false accusations at the drop of a hat makes Sessions look bad. But keep in mind before the Clintons even Session to breath the possibility of a Special Council the investigate Hillary would have looked radical.
      Sessions is probably concerned with this deterioration in trust and is vowing to repair the damage and despair in public trust.

      Also remember what happened to Ken Star who charged in there during the Clinton / Monica affair. How well did that work out?

      In this game those that start the investigation will lose against the Pretorian Guard of the Lame Stream media better know exactly what they are doing or end up being marginalized by the MSM as successfully as Star was.

    I sure hope I’m right.

    Let’s have a little faith. Our president has just had yet another incredible foreign policy success. I am so proud of what he has done on the world stage. He’s done great things for our economy, our military and veterans. At the same time, the relentless war of negative stories and outright lies by the media, the swamp, and the elites makes me so discouraged — but if PDT can reshape our trade and raise America in the eyes of the world, maybe he can help turn the tide against him here at home.

    A “special counsel” may not be needed. If fusion and Uranium 1 are ALREADY being investigated by the Wray FBI, or by some division of the DOJ, or by Mueller,——–Sessions would not be at liberty to discuss any ongoing investigations.

    So we are left to jump to conclusions about what he said and have NO information about what he could NOT say. So we are assuming nothing is being done. Do we really think P45 will let this pass? I think we underestimate him and Sessions if we feel that way.

      Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, miss kitty. I watched the Jim Jordan clip, thinking, “why would a guy like Jordan, be hammering on Sessions, when Jordan himself would take a special counsel or investigation and promptly auger it into the ground, a la Troy Gaudy? To get Sessions to show his cards prematurely, I would assume. All I know is,if you want to nail some colleagues you work side by side with, you’d better have some serious evidence, and you never flash your cards or drop your poker face, If you want to live a full life.

          I’m with Deborah though. PDJT has this. President Trump is executing Political Theatre writ large. He doesn’t need us to discourage ourselves and each other.

          Sessions Playing Possum would be needful in such a game, and only a strong faithful servant could take all these hits on behalf of his Boss and our Nation.

          Look at President Trump’s little Arabella charming the Red Dragon. Do you honestly believe that was simple serendipity? I don’t.

            The Sessions camp took a lot of shelling today, but from the likes of congress, it was only a little fire for effect and a little H & I.
            I’ll support him right up until the moment our magnificent President says he has to go, god forbid that day ever comes. It hasn’t even been one whole year yet, there aren’t many judges who can be moral triers of fact in a slew of cases that would have long lasting repercussions, and VERY harsh penalties to the nefarious that are currently still in the seats of power. No way they’re taking potential incarceration laying down. This stuff takes TIME. I’m still a believer. And if I’m wrong, much worse things are going to happen to me/my family, than having to eat a little crow. Still thinking…

    There is a way to replace Sessions.
    The Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998

    5 U.S. Code Section 3345(a)(2), which states: “notwithstanding [the default rule that the deputy becomes the acting], the President (and only the President) may direct a person who serves in an office for which appointment is required to be made by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to perform the functions and duties of the vacant office temporarily in an acting capacity subject to the time limitations of section 3346.”

    In other words, the president may direct anyone who holds a “PAS” office—one requiring presidential appointment and Senate confirmation—to serve as acting attorney general for 210 days (and potentially longer, depending upon when the president nominates someone to the position). And under the terms of the Federal Vacancies Reform Act, the individual does not even have to be serving in the Justice Department at the time he or she is tapped to be acting attorney general; this person would just have to hold a Senate-confirmed position

  31. I wish Trump had taken a hardline on the appointment of his AG. He needed a complete, personally loyal fighter in that job. I was hoping he would take a lawyer from his own organization that he had been through the wars with. For a little historical perspective :
    “former Ambassador and patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy heavily lobbied President John Kennedy to appoint Bobby as Attorney General in order to provide JFK with a reliable aide (Schlesinger, 230-232). While Bobby had earned a law degree and had serious investigatory experience from his congressional committee days, Bobby lacked the typical pedigree for the job. In an editorial, The New York Times lambasted the idea, explaining, “It is simply not good enough to name a bright young political manager…to a major post in the government” (Schlesinger, 230). Nonetheless, President Kennedy appointed RFK Attorney General in 1960. Recalling his father’s advice, JFK, “needed someone in the cabinet whom he knew intimately and trusted utterly” (Schlesinger, 231). JFK’s decision would pay enormous dividends in the years ahead. “

    At this point it seems absolutely futile to think that AG Sessions will turn out to be anything other than a swamp creature.

    We may as well turn our attention elsewhere because we are only going to become angry and disappointed by keep expecting Sessions to do anything.

    You hate to think it but the swamp has won this particular battle (not the war, just this battle).
    We should have know something was up when Sessions made it through the Senate approval process. The swamp would NEVER EVER EVER approve someone who was seriously going to expose them.

    So, now we keep exposing things with the hope that there will be enough public outcry to force the swamp to clean its own house while also working to elect new people with the hopes that they do not become corrupted within the first six months and will help clean house.

    We must work to primary as many Senators as possible …

    Roy Moore has brought disrepute on Alabama, but nowhere near as much as has Jeff Sessions. He has essentially “recused” himself from his whole job and when testifying before Congress, he basically just keeps taking The Fifth.

    One of the things that ensures “Not Corrupt” behavior by administrations (on both sides) should be the fact that IF people act outside the law, the evidence will be there when the next administration takes over.
    It seems to me that that simple “balance” has been lost.
    The Obama crew ran rampant… especially Hillary… It seems that they have assumed that they are “beyond the law”, and to some extent that is true as things stand., with Obama loyalists (deep state) still infesting Intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

    Now I’m confused, again. This article linked from Doug Ross’s site, by Circa, says that there are DOJ investigations into Uranium One, and insinuates other investigations related to Clinton are on-going.

    Does this mean that there are investigations but AG Jeff Sessions is of the opinion that there is nothing going to come from the investigations?

    If so, we wait to see what President Trump does?

      Uranium 1 was investigated by Obama’s DOJ, and that investigation as well as others may still be ongoing.

      As we saw in Hillary’s e-mail investigation, they can be used to protect from foia’s and to give immunity to the guilty.

      So the real question is not: Are these investigations going on? but rather: What is the end purpose of these investigations.

      There’s no way to tell till they conclude with indictments, or the lack thereof,
