    Another website is using this interview to trash AG Sessions. I think I understand “where he is coming from.” I would love for Sundance to provide his expert insight.

    • Absolutely no one knows for sure what is up with Jeff Sessions including Sundance. Only time will tell…..As for me?

      Well, I vacillate back and forth like a drunk guy trying to hula-hoop down an alleyway.

      One day I jump all over Sessions, another I resolve that I just need to shut up because some of the things he is doing seems very good.

      So, I’m doing exactly that……shutting up….. for now.

        I’ll put it this way.
        First. If Sessions told us what he is doing, he would also be telling the enemy.
        Second: Whether Sessions is dirty or clean our President knows. Sessions is still there and one way or the other, our President knows how to handle it.
        Objectively Speaking: I’ll trust the President. All the rest is just blather, until the action start.

          You’re right. Obviously we play by much more stringent rules than the Left–since they don’t follow rules at all.
          They haven’t had to–they thought.

          I’m a huge fan of Sessions but don’t KNOW that all is well. I PRAY that it is.
          But I agree w/what most are saying here.

          Aside from an almost perfunctory couple of tweets, Trump has left him alone. Given his absolutely crucial position, he’d be FIRED if he weren’t doing the right thing. It’s not like Mueller and Rosenstein… the Left Loudmouths wouldn’t be bothered at all.

          The silence of Sessions’ battle absolutely helps…it’s probably the only way to get work done w/out the Press Toddlers screaming about it and riling the masses.
          It’s kind of funny to see them so sanguine about Sessions.

          I love it that rich urban [former] liberal Hollywood-New York DJT’s best friends are The Farmers: Grassley and Nunes; the military men; and the country gentleman. Every time I listen to Grassley, especially, it strikes me…or when Nunes is entirely grammatical… love these guys.

And, a farmer is also a good business man who manages his resources!

        Some of Sessions critics are pot heads who are miffed about drug policy.

        Some are impatient and want instant gratification.

        Some don’t understand AG JBSIII’s Southern Gentleman personality and speech, total commitment re: law and order, exactitude re: case preparation, and his silent predator stealth prosecutorial style.

        When Sessions strikes, it will be like Sun Tsu:

              We (most of us) are looking for retribution, we’ve been wronged for so long it’s understandable.

              However, Sessions is seeking a return to the rule of law, the proper functioning of government agencies (within the law) and he is putting a structure in place to facilitate that.

              This government is about righting the ship so that we can all sleep soundly at night.

              When it comes to all the corruption remember “Come out it will”.

              So let’s not worry too much about retribution, first get the facts out (Sessions is allowing that),then let facts permeate the conscious of the people and justice will follow like night follows day!

                Appreciate your opinion and honestly I hope your are right cause I have seen too much get swept under the rug for 16 years. Plus our country depends on the truth coming out and indictments being handed out….we will not survive otherwise. That said I will continue to look at Sessions with pessimism. As DOJ of our State he was never a stand out plus I know that he was a late comer to the immigration issue as to amount of corruption. It was the Tea Party in Alabama who enlightened Sessions as to what was going on …..he did not have a clue even with corrupt policies right up under his nose in the Senate. I believe there is one of three things going on with Sessions or all three. 1. Too Naive to believe or understand the extent of leadership corruption and would have reservations about going after colleagues 2. when facing a grey area in the rules chooses the path that is least helpful and always protects his stellar reputation of following the rule of law. 3. Feels he or his family may be in jeopardy if he steps on too many toes.

                  Respect to you for your insight TPW and thank you for the engagement.

                  I once saw an road traffic accident as a boy, that affected me significantly. Not fatal, just disturbing to me as a young 12 year old. Anyway, I struggled for quite some time to reconcile how something so shocking could happen so quickly and with such potential catastrophic consequences for those involved.

                  Time is a great healer and of course the memory tends to concern itself with other more important and prescient concerns ver time.

                  What has been done by those in power over the past 16 years is indefensible. But like that accident to me, over time, it becomes less relevant until an awakening in this case PJT.

                  That, in my opinion is what is taking place, the mass populace is being re-sensitized, shocked into looking at what some bad people have done to subvert the most basic tenet of democracy, overturning the will of the people.

                  It took some time to get to this point, is it no less likely to take some time to reverse it? I think so!

                  it doesn’t excuse lack of action by the doj etc, but it does excuse lack of patience on our part, come out it will.

          • Want me to change that law? OK, please tell me exactly how to do this. The truth is that we the people cannot change our laws anymore quite simply because our elected legislature and judicial branches no longer give a rat’s patutie about our opinion.

            If we could, we would have had a wall, protected our schools, stopped chain immigration and would have ended these silly drug laws 20 years ago.

            Portugal completely legalized drugs, put those enforcement resources into treatment programs and other positive areas, and today their drug use problems are way down. Why can we not do this?

            Prohibition did not work, because people wanted booze, and prohibition of pot will never work for the exact same reason. You would think our politicians would learn, but no, that’s never going to happen.

            So, legalize pot, tax it and then we can lay off about half our police force because, in my opinion, chasing weed around town, and using the old “I smell pot” in order to find probable cause to search a car, is about half of what they do these days.

            Sessions seems trying to take us back to 1960s on this, not forward into the future…..

The point is prohibition was put in place by LAW and a vote by the states. Then removed by the same process. Show me where they passed an amendment to ban a naturally grown substance. Quote the law which allowed this.

        Jeff definitely knows what he is doing. He did say Rosey is a professional which sounds noncommittal.

        Jeff also talked about a strong immigration policy and trashed both current law and latest proposed laws.

      Reply to Gov Jay – I agree that if Sessions does anything overt, the crooked main stream media will label any and all action by the FBI and DOJ as “Trump abusing using his Presidency to go after political opponents”. The crooked main stream media has already done this on several occasions. I think Sessions knows (that the President) is at a disadvantage (with every Presidential action) as the UniParty and crooked main stream media attack the President constantly. I hope the President can make the public more aware of the UniParty (as opposed to the crooked main stream media who are not hiding their agenda).

          While nobody would like to see Hillary Clinton in an orange jumpsuit more than I, it’s important to remember she and Bill have spent 40 years collecting dirt on powerful people, on both the Right and Left, and even where there is none they’ve surely manufactured some.

          I think PDJT, AG Sessions and others are in the unenviable position of weighing good against harm regarding the Clintons. If she goes down, she’ll take at least half of DC with her.There’s a difference between draining the swamp and burning it down, because we don’t know what will emerge in its place. The constitutional crisis we have now might pale in comparison to what we’ll get in that event. We assume the rule of law will be restored, but that might not be what happens.The President and AG only have the power we give them, and today we must evaluate the ‘we” in We The People.” Right now the Left has it all. They have all the institutions except the Church, and they’re even gaining ground there. They have the megaphones, they’re winning state and local elections. That isn’t to say all is lost – it isn’t, as evidenced by the election of President Trump – but we had better be careful what we wish for. It’s maddening to think we would acquiesce to the Clintons holding our government hostage in the interest of keeping the (relative) peace, but given the current political environment we might get much worse than we have now. It’s a game of chicken we might not win. I am quite conflicted.

      ___________________

      They are going to do that anyway.

      This is what frustrates me, the timidity, the second-guessing of ourselves, the misplaced concern over how something might be perceived by the hateful Left, when Conservatives go out of their way to anticipate how the side of evil will react and then pre-emptively bend over backwards to mollify them. It ALL redounds to the benefit of the enemy and makes it nearly impossible to do what must be done to ever WIN this war.

      It’s like not bombing the Vietcong if they’re in Laos, so the Vietcong know that, and travel through Laos at every opportunity, because we’re doing our Marquess of Queensberry idiot routine.

      Can anyone imagine worrying about how the Japanese were going to feel before we attacked Guadalcanal?

      Or Patton wringing his hands in concern over the feelings of the Nazis he was about to crush, and how they might ‘spin’ it?

      The enemy we face inside the gate is worse than the Japanese or the Germans ever were. WWII took us 4 years to win. The hateful Marxist Left has been at war with America ever since, and they’ve been winning for 73 years now, because we can never seem to bring ourselves to actually FIGHT.

      I don’t know why anybody cares what evil people think.

      They would attack the forthcoming prosecutions even if Jesus Christ Himself convicted them.

      So there isn’t ANYTHING we could ever possibly do to prevent the insanely hateful anti-American God-hating Left from acting out.

      Except one thing.

      CRUSH them.

            There probably is more to it and there might be a little of both. People have expressed frustration and ambivalence about Sessions, his recusal, and his failure to prosecute Hillary Clinton. After all, he has in his possession a complete investigation of Clinton that has nothing to do with Russia. He could convene a grand jury tomorrow, but in the scheme of things, that might not be the smartest thing to do. Based on the video he appears to have a plan that he will execute methodically. I doubt we’ll wake up tomorrow to witness a mass perp walk, but one at a time, he’ll get most of them.

          The hiring of Sessions is certainly perplexing. Any Trump AG would come under fire for bias whether a member of the campaign or not. Maybe the recusal was planned, though, to be sure, if the shoe were on the other foot, Holder/Lynch would never have done the same. The problem is that Trump’s innocence in the collusion doesn’t matter as long as Mueller can keep the story alive through the next campaign season, though there is the possibility that a sham investigation could backfire politically. It may even be that prolonging the Mueller probe was what Trumpworld had in mind to set the traps needed to bring down the big boys.

              Bob, do you REALLY think the Democrats would NOT be screaming for recusal of anyone who Trump nominated??? They don’t need a real reason they just needed to force a recusal so THEY were in charge of the Special Counsel and Trump’s AG was hamstrung. That was their goal and that is what they were going to get come He11 or high water! It was all part of the ‘Insurance Policy’

              In a year President Trump has nominated EIGHTY TWO federal judges and only twenty-four, two a month have been confirmed. So Yes, I have every reason to believe the DemonRats and Rinos would bolix-up the AG approval if they needed to.

          No Sessions wasn’t planning a recusal. The 1st time it came up was during his confirmation hearing. I believe it started with Al Franken questioning & then Sen Grassley pretty much made Sessions say he would recuse. None of that was planned.

      The morning after the Seth Rich murder MS 13 members, Rafael Aguilar and Carmelo Marmolejo-Calixto, were found dead in Myrtle Beach, SC…. Jesus Campos was NOT a registered security guard, MS 13 too????

      SO MS13 is ONE part of the Weaponized Swamp that has recently been defanged.

      ANTIFA and Black Lives Matters are another part of the Weaponized Swamp. The take down of the Saudi Princes has help defund part of the Swamp’s Army. A Judge allowed the demand for data on Trump inaugural protest website to be met. This takes out alot of the ANTIFA and BLM organizers.

      Unfortunately we are still left with the ‘loan gunman’ threat like in Los vegas and now at the Florida school. Bob Creamer and his buddies are really good at using the crazies for these type of atrocities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IuJGHuIkzY

      Again cutting off the money to pay those who coordinate the crazies is the first goal. That is why “Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s push[ed] to restore civil asset forfeiture as a law-enforcement tool.” back in August of 2017 and President Trump wrote the EO in December.

            I agree – this is founder-level stuff! And there is a reason for it, but I find myself standing at the base of a mountain, even to begin to fathom the reason.

            Don’t sell short the idea that G_d can reach even the agnostic, without that agnostic relaxing a single one of their principles of skepticism, which are healthy.

            If one observes that existence itself has a kind of upward intelligence, and you CHOOSE to believe that this intelligence and all that falls out from it has some kind of mathematical reality which favors the creation therefrom, you’re basically going in the back door to where all the prophets of the Bible started, and what Christ understood even as a youth. Carl Sagan saw this stuff, too, while not budging from his refusal to accept religious dogma at face value. If you watch his writings as he grew older, he saw this pattern in the universe.

            It is all deeply worth thinking about. I think about G_d every day, from every perspective I possibly can. You cannot go wrong thinking about G_d, as long as you KEEP thinking. G_d will try to reach you, which is part of the mysterious nature of one of the most fundamental creations – information. G_d will teach you. Christ is a teacher who will keep you on track. His words are sometimes mysterious, but they are always amazing. There are others, but the SAFE one is Christ. Stick to what he says, from his mouth, in the Gospels, and understand it at a PERSONAL level, and you can’t go wrong.
            Then you can see what those around him said, and why.

            This was one of the most powerful things I ever learned. No matter what one’s religion, a PERSONAL understanding – a LIVING relationship with Christ – is key.

            Some people have to see it all simply. Some need to see it as complexity. Some people need a puzzle. G_d is not picky. G_d wants you to see.

            From the very first bit, even before number itself, G_d wanted you to see.

            PS – The idea that George Washington was blessed by G_d is one of the most powerful PRACTICAL ideas I’ve ever believed in, and I have FAITH in it because it is over and over consistent with biblical principles!!!

I received back from the Senator a 2 page letter addressing those concerns, with statistics and other facts. Color me impressed! I’m sure it was computer generated ( maybe from Steven Miller?) but very thorough in what his thoughts were to address the problem, and what it was doing to our state and our country.

            Not to sound contentious, but trumps no politician and he’s the best president in 120+years, except Reagan. Nunes is intelligent and courageous. The best leaders our country has ever had had weren’t career politicians, like George Washington. Bill Buckley once said he would rather be ruled by first 100 names in phone book than Harvard faculty. Or something to that affect.

        Washington Compost: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions is naming 17 interim U.S. attorneys to run federal prosecutor shops across the country, including the premier office in Manhattan. Geoffrey S. Berman, a law partner of Rudolph W. Giuliani at the firm Greenberg Traurig and a former federal prosecutor, was named…”

        These are not CONFIRMED by Congress.

    I really appreciated his response to why he recused himself – “under explicit regulation of the Department of Justice, no one can participate in the investigation of a campaign in which they were an active participant”; followed with – “You can’t ask others in the department to follow law and follow the rules, if the Attorney General refuses to do so”. He is clearly a man of ethical standards! I also believe President Trump made those comments last year (his disappointment of such), as purely a “tactical comment” – The President and the AG are on the same page and traps need to be set via specific comments to throw the media into another ridiculous frenzy..

        Jeff Sessions is covering all his bases and in the meantime, pointing out those who did NOT abide by DOJ Regulations. He knows the system, he knows there is an unwritten “rule” (what Adam Schiff called crossing a Red Line) that current Administrations don’t ever prosecute former Administrations — it’s a Culture of Corruption that Trump/Sessions is going to bust up.

    Sessions recusing himself is a master play in my humble, unsolicited opinion. If he had been like holder and lynch, guns blazing, leaking to media, the dems and some of the decents would cry political witchunt. When Sessions obtains the IG report, he will indict. This way Sessions will state that he didn’t indict until the IG had done his job, an IG who was appointed by Obama or his minions. The investigation and the indictment recommendations are Horowitz’s, not Sessions. This will take a lot of wind out of the blowback from the commie dems.

    I didn’t trust Donald Trump in 2017. Now Trump has my well earned respect. I believe Trump has the destruction of the deep state well planned and on schedule, based on Trump’s past performances. I am convinced the deep state will be destroyed for this historical era. The deep state never had to deal with Trump (non-politico) and cannot dominate Trump or his supporters.

    Producing what may be a record number of documents to Congress does not necessarily mean that the DOJ has been responsive to Congress. When there has been a cabal operating at the top of the DOJ and FBI working to effect a coup of the duly elected President, there is reason for producing to Congress a probable record number of documents. How often has this nation observed the efforts of one administration (at least, persons high up at the DOJ and in intel agencies who have the ability to run a counterintelligence operation) to effect a banana republic style coup of the next administration? I would hope that the DOJ under the Trump administration would work to produce to Congressional oversight committees all of the documents that would inform the public about such actions.

    So, while there may have been a lot which has been produced before Congress, there has also been a lot that Congress has requested that the DOJ and FBI have not produced. And much of what has been produced has been extremely slow in appearing before Congress. Thus, I find Session’s comments about the responsiveness of the DOJ to be rather disingenuous.

    Also concerning to me is his statement that the DOJ is “not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant.” How does that square with the actions taken by Rod Rosenstein to sign off on an extension to the FISC for surveillance of Carter Page? Are you playing Rod Rosenstein and allowing him to hang himself? Given that the DOJ has continued to produce statements to the FISC that have stated the need to continue surveillance which had no legal justification to begin with, then the DOJ has participated in providing to FISC information which falls extremely short of proper disclosure. The only way to square Session’s statement here with what has been the behavior of the DOJ under his watch is that he has commissioned the IG to open an investigation of Deputy AG Rosenstein, and when the IG’s report is brought forth, charges will be pursued against those who have participated in the cabal to effect a coup of President Trump – including Deputy AG Rosenstein!

    This is worth of a transcript:

    Maria Bartiromo: I spoke with Mr. Sessions just a few hours before the indictments were handed down and I asked him about the Muller probe including his decision to recuse himself from anything involving Russia but I began with the immigration battle and the negotiations that simply fell apart on Thursday.

    AG Sessions: Look, this is an opportunity for the American people, maybe our last real opportunity to create an immigration system that’s lawful, that ends the lawlessness, the illegality and serves the national interest. President Trump plan was as strong. The Grassley bill included that pretty effectively. It’s the kind of legislation I think could work, that I supported and it didn’t pass. But I gotta say we have got to talk about this as a nation. We need the…President Trump’s plans call for ending illegality, having real enforcement with a border wall. It calls for merit based system instead of the chain migration. It calls for ending the Visa Lottery which the ridiculous policy and always has been. Why we can’t get that done baffles me and I think the American people are there and we cannot stop. We’ve got to get this done.

    Maria Bartiromo: So, is there anything the administration is willing to give on? I mean, surely you saw that op-ed in the journal on Friday which was titled “President Miller’s Immigration Veto” and they talk about the fact that this last bill included authorizing 25 billion over 10 years for the wall on the Mexican/U.S. border. That was a victory. It’s two and a half billion dollars in the first year. Probably more than the Democrats wanted. So, where is the opportunity to come halfway?

    AG Sessions: Well, we don’t have to go halfway beyond the fundamentals. President Trump’s fundamentals are good. Who can oppose ending the Visa Lottery? Who wants to continue the lawlessness? Who wants to allow, uh, create a situation where you get amnesty, a legality for young people that are here and not end up with a legal system that will be enforceable in the future? There’s nothing mean-spirited about it. We admit 1 million people a year lawfully into America. Hundred of thousands of workers are here in addition to that every year taking jobs so we’re not talking about ending immigration. The President’s in no way talking about being unkind. And, if sometime in the future after the illegality has ended we begin to talk about people who’ve been here a long time and who’ve not violated our laws in other ways.

    Maria Bartiromo: Do you expect to get a deal done on DACA before the March 5th deadline, sir?

    AG Sessions: I don’t know. The people who say they want to fix that, President Trump has offered them that. He’s been very generous in his legislation. I think that is a very generous policy. Goes beyond actually what President Obama had and his DACA policy goes beyond what even some people who favored the DACA expected. So, that’s been very generous. So we’re in a..he’s already made compromises. So, the question really is when we passed this bill will we once more fool the American people? We we once more give legality, legal status, to people who entered the country illegally and never follow through in an effective way the promises that have been made to them politically? And, I gotta tell you on the enforcement side, there are some big loopholes in this legislation. We …you cannot leave the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice unable to actually deport people who entered the country illegally.

    Maria Bartiromo: Well, I think you make a great point. There’s a more to come on this, so I want to get back to this subject because I want to address something else. You mentioned lawlessness. There appears to have been a lot of lawlessness going on in government over the last eight or ten years and I want to ask you about the abuses of the FISA Court because any way you look at it, it appears the FBI and the Department of Justice were abusing their power over the election because they simply did not like Donald Trump. We know that and a number of issues. Now people want you to start handing down justice. Newt Gingrich joined me on this program last Sunday. Here’s what he had to say about that. Listen to this, Mr. Attorney General:

    Newt Gingrich: He is not in any way recused on this information. He should be appointing an independent counsel. He should be demanding that we get to the bottom of this. I’m totally mystified because he’s a great guy. He’s a solid conservative. He certainly, in his career, has been a fighter, and this behavior is just totally unlike everything I knew about Jeff Session before the last six or eight months.

    Maria Bartiromo: Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates, and they did not tell the FISA court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for that dossier?

    AG Sessions: Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate as a Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not gonna talk about the details of it, but I’ll tell you, we’re not gonna allow that to happen.

    Maria Bartiromo: Do we need another Special Counsel in place to look at what the FBI and the Department of Justice abused its power, how they abused their power.

    AG Sessions: Well, the Inspector General has been working very hard on that. He’s been relentless and tough. I’ve seen, heard some of his work that has been produced already. Much of of what we know about this has been produced by his work and the Department of Justice, the text messages that have all been made public or disclosed by the Department of Justice. We’ve made Congress, we’ve given Congress records and documents beyond anything ever been produced, really, probably in history, and we’re gonna continue to be open with them and be responsive. We have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of this process, and I’m going to use my authority as the Attorney General to ensure that, but the management of this case, from which I’m recused, is in the hands of Mr. Mueller and supervised by the acting Attorney General for this investigation, Rod Rosenstein, a proved professional and Deputy Attorney General.

    Maria Bartiromo: Well, there’s a lot of conflicts around the Special Prosecutor’s team, we know that, but that’s putting aside, because I know you recused yourself, but there are felonies apparently that have already taken place. I mean, we had on this program just last week the Chairman of the Intel Committee, Devin Nunes, and he said there are felonies that are going, not looked at at all, they’re going by over and over. Listen to what he told me just last Sunday.

    Devin Nunes: The big felony in all of this that nobody talks about from the very beginning was the leak of highly classified information when they leaked the phone call of the Russian Ambassador talking to General Mike Flynn right before the inauguration. That was a felony. Nothing’s ever been done about it.

    Maria Bartiromo: Is your office investigating this, sir?

    AG Sessions: That is a violation of the law to leak classified documents, and it is being investigated. I will say this, there are, last two years before I became Attorney General, there were, each year there was three open investigation of classified leaks, now we have 27, and we’re going after this aggressively. I have directed it personally. Some of the matters involve this matter, and some of it is matters that I’m not recused on, and we are pursuing aggressively.

    Maria Bartiromo: So you feel that there are matters that you can get into? For example, there’s a lot of feeling out there that the Hillary Clinton email investigation was a sham. You know, Loretta Lynch told Jim Comey to call it a matter, that’s exactly what he did, and in fact it was a criminal investigation. We know that he wrote an exoneration letter, Jim Comey did, before he even did the interview with Hillary Clinton. What have you learned in terms of the opening, re-opening of the Hillary Clinton email investigation? Will there be charges? Will there be accountability here, sir?

    AG Sessions: Maria, we’re gonna do our job in this Department properly and correctly, and I’m not gonna be led into discussion of all the details of matters that you might be interested in. We can’t do that in the media. We’re gonna restore the rule of law. We’re gonna restore propriety in how cases are managed, and that’s all I can promise you.

    Maria Bartiromo: Do you regret recusing yourself from anything related to Russia, sir?

    AG Sessions: I believe I did the right thing, the only thing I could do. I participated in this campaign and, as such, on the explicit regulations of the Department of Justice, no one can participate in the investigation of a campaign in which they were an active participant.

    Maria Bartiromo: Let me ask you a broader question here–

    AG Sessions: How can you ask other–

    Maria Bartiromo: I’m sorry, sir?

    AG Sessions: You can’t ask other members of the Department to follow the law and follow the rules that the Attorney General himself refuses to do so.

    Maria Bartiromo: In terms of broader look at what’s happened here sir we know that there was an incredible abuse of power at the top of the FBI and the Department of Justice now. We’ve seen the text. We know what has gone on. How do you turn this ship around? Clearly there have been agencies, government agencies. When did it happen that they became so politicized and can you change this?

    AG Sessions: Maria I’m not going to acquiesce and acknowledge the correctness of all the statements you’ve made. People will make up their own mind in due time about those things. But we are setting a tone of professionalism and responsibility and lawfulness in this department. We expect it of every member. We’ve got a new FBI director, a new deputy FBI director, a new legal counsel in the FBI director’s office and a new press person in the FBI’s office. So we’ve made some real changes there. Chris Wray is a real man of integrity and decency, a brilliant lawyer and experience Department of Justice employee. We’ve made other changes within this department that I think will put us on a path to fulfill my responsibility to the American people and that is to conduct our work professionally, honestly and without political bias.

    Maria Bartiromo: And that’s all we can ask you to do Mr. Attorney General. Up next more of my interview with the attorney general, Jeff Sessions including his take on the missed warning…before that news came out I asked Sessions missed signals from the FBI in the case.

    AG Sessions: Yes there clearly were and even the schools refused to let the person come in or bring a backpack because they were concerned about it. I met with a group of sheriffs yesterday. They all believe we need to do a better job at receiving these signs and acting on them and following up on them better. That is probably the most valuable thing we can do to stop these kinds of cases. We see the recent cases Maria of the grandmother who was concerned about a grandchild and that appears to have been a dangerous situation that her going to the police and them acting on it may have prevented. So absolutely we’ve got to do better about that. We are going to review Department of Justice policies and we’re not perfect either and we are going to make sure we’re getting at the highest possible level of responding to appropriate notices of danger like probably was out there in this case.

    Maria Bartiromo: Yeah it’s really terrible. Can you explain why the administration reversed an Obama era policy last year that would have forced social security officials to report records of some mentally ill people getting benefits. People are saying look there was a plan in place that you would have known if a mentally ill person acquired a gun.

    AG Sessions: I don’t know how that would work, exactly the background on that but I would just say to you that we’ve got to be more effective it. If a person is hearing voices and he’s making threats to shoot and kill innocent people that person is subject to be taken to a legal official being declared as subject to be having mental health treatment. I think that probably existed in this case. I can’t say for certain but we’ll see as facts go by. But I have to say you are correct that we need to do a better job at identifying people who obviously…or could possibly present threats to children in the school.

    Alright we will leave it there. Mr. Attorney General we really appreciate your time this morning. Thank you very much for joining me.

    AG Sessions: Thank you.

    Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch would not have recused themselves, and that’s why they left behind a deep swamp in the DOJ.

    Finally, someone willing to enforce the integrity of the FISA court system. I hope anyway.

    With Snowden’s disclosures in 2013, I got after my Senator, Feinstein, about the potential abuses of this program only to have her respond in closing,

    “Again, please know that although we may not agree on this subject, your correspondence is important to me and I value your contribution to the ongoing debate about U.S. national security programs. If you have any additional comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.” -Senator Feinstein Sept 20, 2013.

    …Yea right. Five years later what I have feared looks like what has happened, and I am going to contact, again, her Washington, D.C. office….

    If WE are uncertain regarding Sessions, how much more uncomfortable those folks in his cross-hairs must be. They have no idea where the hit is coming from, or when, nothing to counterpunch, yet. I can HEAR the DC criminals sweating bullets, like the patter of falling rain.

    I for one would love to hear Ms. Bombard’s analysis of Jeff Sessions during this interview.

    I believe he gives off several tells including where he shakes his head ‘no’ in a couple of instances (once while affirming his recusal), a slight smirk on his recusal answer, raised eyebrows on his statement about Dir Wray, uncomfortable voice and positioning during his statement of DAG Rosenstein and narrowed eyes on his forthright statement about how his DOJ will follow the law and that he was following the law to the letter with regards to his campaign participation and resulting recusal.

    My thoughts on AG Sessions are that he recused because some adversary suggested to him during confirmation hearings that they would make it a problem. He recused and denied those adversaries the opportunity to go after him and possibly even set a trap therein. I think that he is firmly behind Dir Wray, but no so much with DAG Rosenstein. Finally, I think he is stubborn and is pursuing his vision of law and order within the DOJ and FBI.

    Just my 2 cents. But what do I know?
