Jeff Sessions Resignation…

Here is Attorney General Jeff Sessions letter of resignation as released from the executive:

Some have noted the letter of resignation is undated.  The likely reason is not complex; it was written prior to the official request from the office of the president.  Once requested it was delivered. Given the rift between the AG and the president, Jeff Sessions knew his days were numbered.

So what does this mean?

First, we cannot discuss the firing of the Attorney General without directly dealing with the 800lb gorilla in the room.

There was no “trust the plan” to confront the deep state that involved “trust Sessions.”

There was no multidimensional chess strategy being coordinated between President Trump and the Attorney General, to upend the DC deep state.

That brings us forward to the issues around this “Q phenomena”:

There is no effort to use U.S. Attorney John Huber to confront the deep state apparatus; there are not 60,000 sealed indictments (or whatever number currently being used); there’s not an intention to use military tribunals to round up swaths of people for prosecution; there’s no plan to use Guantanamo Bay to house them; there are not going to be tribunals resulting in mass executions by recently approved firing squads in Utah; U.S. Attorney Huber does not have an army of “500 prosecutors” preparing to drop the hammer on DC…. and finally, NO, President Trump doesn’t go into some mysterious internet chat room to type up coded messages and instructions under the nom de plume “Q”.   All of that is pure unmitigated nonsense, yet thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, actually believe it.

There is a pending and slightly-possible DOJ case against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that U.S. Attorney John Huber may be in charge of.  There may be ancillary subjects, specifically related to McCabe, that may also have legal jeopardy.  That’s it. Nothing more.

No, Jeff Sessions getting fired (requested resignation) today is not part of some grand plot to expose the Deep State; where Sessions role has ended and someone else now takes over.

Anyone who would make such a claim, in general terms, comes from the same small group who need to sell the original “Stealth Jeff”, “Slow Walker”, “Trust the Plan” fan fiction they have been theorizing for the past year.  When the central element of their theory collapses, they either: (A) admit they are wrong; or (B) as in recent examples, reconcile the contradictory events by overlaying another bizarre layer to the theory to continue selling the nonsense, move the goalposts, and make the bizarre theory even more convoluted. Sadly, the latter approach is visible today.

The logical and intellectual reality is that President Trump has wanted to declassify documents requested by congress (House of Representatives) that would show the corrupt activity within the FBI and DOJ surrounding the 2016 election.  DAG Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller do not want those documents released.  There has been a conflict between the differing sets of interests and priorities.  What happens in this lame-duck congressional session around this issue is an unknown.

It appears Mueller has informed Rosenstein that any declassification would be considered interference/obstruction with his investigation.  Rosenstein has communicated that threat to President Trump.

What happens next is politics; however, Democrats take control in January and will exploit any lame-duck executive action as part of their own obstruction investigation – which will likely kick off with their reception of the investigative report from Mueller.   Given the outcome of the midterms, the timing of that report will likely be to wait until Democrats are in charge of the investigative committees.

With the midterm election now over; and with the house going to change hands; Inspector General Michael Horowitz also has a friendly date to deliver his FISA investigation results; after the new congress is in place.  A much more soft landing.

At least, that’s the way it seems.

The next set of political moves will be President Trump’s effort to thwart their plan.

    Well what has happened is over and we just have to hope the new AG has the integrity to bring people to justice for spygate.

    You can never allow something like that to go unpunished as it targets the actual foundation of our Republic.

    Well, Sundance. You had my respect and attention for well more than 2 years until you bashed the Q movement. It is obvious that you are clueless in this area and would do much better to stay out….but it’s too late. Been a fan of yours for a long time; ;however, this is goodbye. Had you followed Q in real time over this past year, you would not be drawing this line in the sand for your followers. I am out of here with you.

      This is utterly silly. Q has provided nothing of any real use or value and he was the YUGEST Sessions cheerleader out there. Even if he is not a LARP (and to be clear, I think he is), he is utterly indistinguishable from a LARP because there is no substantive content.

      Sundance, by contrast, provides excellent, detailed research and fine-grained content, along with analysis. Is he always right? No. But when he’s not (as on Jeff Sessions, originally), as far as I’ve seen he admits it, updates his priors, and approaches the next task. That’s admirable!!

      Because Q is BS. It’s all based on a lie at the start that Q was some government official with top secret clearance. Hillary was going to be arrested bla bla bla. Then it moved to it was all about “research”. Research is fine but they should do it under their own name and they should stop putting their opinions in their research and acting like they know stuff that is going to happened that they don’t. You guys got to realize you had been had. Time to throw away the Q shirts and move on.

        It isn’t necessarily BS because you say so. You don’t know enough to be able to call it definitively, in fact, most of us don’t. The operation isn’t finished yet, and probably won’t be for quite a while and just because Hillary hasn’t been arrested yet, you cannot say it won’t happen because you are not in the loop and if you were, you wouldn’t be posting here.

      Q is a research site. We are the researchers. Q posits questions. We try to find the answers. Sometimes Q appears to be a lawyer; other times he/she/it appears to be military intelligence. Maybe Q is all of this and more. Maybe there is an AI component.

      In any case, Sundance, if Q is nothing but a larp or worse, why is it that “Q” was threatened with violating the Hatch Act by six high level Democrats? You have to be a State actor in one of several specific agencies to violate the Hatch Act. A guy in his basement who is not associated with certain government agencies cannot violate the Hatch Act.

        “Q is a research site.”

        I respect SD greatly and he is right IN PART about Q. Q was not on point in several of his observances.And so what SD mentioned I already knew and discarded, but I still read Q cause I am curious. Just like I stupidly watch CNN once a month for 3 minutes.

        TREEPERS and others will continue reading about Q and even some believing what he says. For example those who belive in Q will simply say that he in not infallible and that he made mistakes as to what SD pointed out about Sessions.

        SD, I appreciate your points though, because you reinforce what I already researched and figured out so thanks SD because some people still have no time to research, so they just believe Q 100 percent, which you should not.

        I mean think about it folks, Sessions was supposedly quietly supporting Trump and engaging in hundreds of grand juries with HUBER taking the lead, yet DC has leaked absolutely ZERO of such occurrences? Nah, I DON’t BELIEVE Q in this aspect.

        I still read him critically though. As does SD! I DO NOT BELIEVE, BUT I READ.

        The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Much of what he writes makes me think. For being on the inside, folks, Q has been wrong a whole lot! I’ll just leave it there!

          Sundance is totally correct on this issue. Considering the religious fervor of the believers it took a lot of courage for him to state publicly on his site what many of us have been saying for some time. For that he deserves our praise and recognition that nobody’s predictions always end up being correct.

    The applause Sessions received as he departed is the most troubling aspect of that story. I believe he was incompetent. I believe he was taken in by the careerists at the DOJ. It was easier to not rock the boat than it would have been to clean house. Those clapping were the swamp. They still exist; they still have power; Jeff Sessions did not lift a finger to clean up that mess. This should scare everyone.

    At least he’s gone now. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    You have said many times before, “There are trillions at stake.” I agree, but it is a question of more than merely material wealth.

    We are at war. It is a war unlike any we have experienced in our history.

    Our enemy is capable of and, in fact, has committed unspeakable acts against other human beings, yes, even children. Victory for our enemy will result in the destruction of the laws and institutions which underpin our way of life, our standard of living and even our civilization.

    How do our leaders prosecute such a war against such an enemy and, at the same time, maintain their own humanity? Why is it so hard for you to believe that Qanon would be one participant in such an effort? What needs to occur for you to be convinced?

    The questions I would love to have an answer to:
    Did Jeff Sessions decide he would recuse himself from the Trump witchhunt
    BEFORE he accepted the AG position?
    If so, why did he not inform DJT of his decision before accepting?
    If not, why did he not inform DJT of his intention to recuse before actually doing so,
    so that DJT would have the opportunity to choose someone else for AG?

    If President Trump’s gambit to maintain leverage over Mueller post election by appointing Whitaker becomes untenable I would suggest that he appoint a Presidential Commission to investigate demonstrated corruption at the DOJ/FBI. The Commission would be free from oversight by any branch of government and therefore have only the normal biases any group of people would bring to the table. And they could start with the evidence obtained from the House Intelligence Committee before Schiffty takes charge.

      Now that Mueller reports to Whitaker, it will be up to Whitaker to decide whether Mueller can proceed with wacky theories about what constitutes Obstruction of Justice. I don’t know whether Mueller operates differently, but in days gone by, prosecutions brought by Main Justice Special Attorneys (not to be confused with “special counsels”) had to be supported by “prosecutive memoranda” that laid out the theory of the case. If Whitaker doesn’t like the support Mueller offers, he can demand more IN WRITING. Putting Bobby M through his paces IN WRITING could well end this farce.

    How could the release of documents be construed as obstruction when they are actually providing transparency? And there has been no indications at all that Mueller has even looked into the corruption of the FISA process and many more indications that it was used to hide the corruption.

    And so what if it gets added to the articles of impeachment this next House of crazies draws up? There idiocy will not go anywhere in the Senate, so let them spin in circles and relieve themselves on the floor, like my old Boxers did when they got excited.

    My comment 10 months ago was that the ‘Big Ugly’ ain’t gonna happen. I gave Session the benefit of the doubt until the turn of 2018. Listened to all the Sessions defenders even with Trump calling out Sessions sleeping on the job.

    So, I’m wondering why all of the sudden I’m allowed to post again? Was I banned? My feelings aren’t hurt and found it funny I couldn’t post anymore. I have stopped by and read quite often just to gauge things.

    Mildly disappointed with the OPEN hostility, and a childish, (or simply emotional) tone,almost like personally affronted……
    Adopted by the commentators. Which I have RARELY seen here.
    While not defending the “validity” of “Q”, I will add, that in my opinion, the Q “movement”,
    Is rather sprawling and complex, and at its center:::::Urges people to question,investigate,and to be VERY skeptical of all political industrial complex……Offerings!
    AND is hard to fairly DEFINE accurately, in a short essay.

    to some DEEP STATE, to some The Cabal, Luciferian influences, or godless MARXISTS.

    In my view; regardless of the chatter, the media “conspiracy theory “ narrative or wild claims by those proporting to represent Q.

    THEY , the “qanons” are MAGA to the MAX!!

    ps…it would be hard to argue that Sessions leaving and Trumps guy coming in, AT THIS TIME,

        I meant to say a vibe, ranging from slightly hostile, to childish “I told you so’s”
        Perhaps I was thinking of the WHOLE Q movement being maybe looked at with too narrow a viewfinder.
        For me the q event where the sign appeared at that rally in Florida, I believe , and the next day UNIFORM negative coverage of Q appears in ALL media, showed A “somethings happening here, what it is, ain’t exactly clear” moment.

        But the main point is
        Q=MAGA……so far.
        WE NEED ALL THE ALLIES we can get.
        and don’t forget, many of those folks have maybe Never followed politics before.

        Lord Trump is in great position to make some great deals, with Congress.
        In my opinion the TRUE measure of MAGA success; along with getting two terms,
        Is bringing our “liberal” brothers and sisters into the fold.
        Who made MAGA republican only?
        NATIONALIST(and no, not nutty, neo- nazi, klan, skinhead, haters, or “white nationalists”)
        Vs GLOBALISTS. Is the struggle.
        FACT is, a large percentage of the country are DEMOCRATS, or Independents, or something other than Republican Party.

        THE UNI-Party is not MAGA

        the challenge is to get all agree, on solutions or compromise to SOLVE,,,,,,
        America’s problems.

        That’s what I hear; and heard from Mr. Trump.

    Replacement of AG Sessions affords the new AG the opportunity to require Mueller to submit a detailed status report on everything the OSC has going or intends to pursue. This should include all indictments, prosecutions, planned indictments and prosecutions, lines of inquiry, witnesses yet to be interrogated, areas he intends to explore, etc., plus a schedule and budget for completion of the SC’s “mandate” and final report. The AG cannot do his job without knowing all of this. Rosenstein gave Mueller an open ticket, which is contrary to the SC statute. Without “obstructing” the SC’s operations (gasp and clutch pearls), it is time for the new sheriff in town to require definition of an end game. Before the 2020 election.
