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.

    Remembering that Brennan-Comey-Clapper claimed that they had “human intel” inside the Trump campaign (before they denied they had anyone inside the campaign), it makes sense that the “inside guy” would have been Sessions. That explains everything that has transpired with him. He was a traitor from the beginning. His long time air of bemusement (except when his own personal reputation was attacked) was not an act – he really was bemused by the reality that he knew.

      OR he was bemused by what he knew the grand scheme was leading to (planned by him and Trump): from his appointment, to his recusal, to his resignation he has been gaining more inside info in the DOJ to substantiate his knowledge of the scandal of the century; NOT to defeat Trump, but to be able to be a witness against the Clintons, Obama, etc etc etc.
      It could go either way.

            Cuppa, is that a criticism? Do you think Sessions is the key witness against hillary/comey et al as part of a plan with Q and PJDT?
            From a Kindle review of a Christopher Wren novel I enjoyed in gradeschool, with the protagonist attempting to single-handedly man many redoubts to give the aappearance of many:

            From a Kindle review. One of the All-Time Great Adventure Books
            “This is a novel I first read in seventh grade, that is actually a better read decades later! It not only is a solid mystery and adventure; but for those who love the English language, it is loaded with subtle puns and plays on words. Considering the period in which it was written, there are some anachronistic words and phrases; but if you read it on a Kindle or other device with an online dictionary, it actually makes it more fun to read. Throw in the occasional French or Latin phrase and by the end of the book you’ve received quite an education!
            One caution – there is a bit of racism and jingoism typical of the English Empire during this period. But if you can get past that, it is a rollicking good adventure.”

            “I read BEAU GESTE as a young lad wet behind the ears. The only part of the story that stayed with me through all the subsequent years was the Fort Zinderneuf under-siege sequence, which is a marvelous tale in its own right. So I had forgotten what a fun and entertaining read P.C. Wren’s novel is–a tale of the three Brothers Geste (Beau, Digby, John) and a missing sapphire (the “Blue Water”), set in the Sahara desert at remote Fort Zinderneuf, manned by the French Foreign Legion and under the command of the evil and cunning Adjutant, Lejaune. This is such a riveting read, not only for the story, but it’s a time capsule of the 1920s, when it was first published. Accordingly it very much has its own vocabulary, borrowing extensively from French, and three young upper class Brits in those days exchanged dialogue in a jolly delightful way.

            Courage. Devotion. Mystery. Intrigue. Heartbreak. Action. BEAU GESTE contains all of these elements, and the story is weaved seamlessly from (primarily) John’s point of view. But do be prepared: Again, because this was written in a different age, many of the words, jargon, and slogans are jarring, and very politically incorrect. One star off due to this absolutely revolting Munsey’s edtion. The type setting is an eyesore and the margins literally go right into the binding. Very tricky to read. If you get the chance to obtain a different edition I very much recommend doing so; otherwise get ready for one grand adventure.”

          I agree. You have put in two sentences what happened to Sessions. No need to read further on this thread, IMHO.

          However, if anyone is still reading, Sessions had a problem with arrogance about his position at DOJ and that became a tool the Dems used to hurt the president. His arrogance blinded him to the corruption at DOJ and FBI and he refused to do the right thing. It is not a violation of the law for the AG to have the president’s back, as Holder said of his job at DOJ. Sessions felt he was independent of Trump and he was determine to act on his own even if it ruined Trump.

          The point: I, or anyone else on CTH, would have treated the president this way, IMHO.

    While I highly respect Sundance and his thorough investigate work. We underestimated how many people are brainwashed and actually believe fake news. some are hardcore Christian’s but still believe we are a bunch of racists or fundamentalist. They are willing to accept something more grave as abortion or supporting selling of aborted baby parts for open borders or immigration maybe it’s because they have some family member who might be affected or they really feel compasion for the illegals. Then the indoctrination of our children in the so called anti God secular institutions. 95% of people who surround me are Trump bashers believe fake news as I’ve said all along and they gloated watch POTUS burn with the house victory.

    I think Trump has made a big move here todat and we are all going to see the huge Trojan Horse move and the destruction it brings within a short interval. Session has been loyal and is acting along. Brilliant move POTUS! That was indeed a real stealth bomber! 😂 😊

        Very interesting. More of this kind of real investigation needs to be done on Q. Why aren’t the smart techies of 4chan and 8chan tracing the source of the Q posts to an actual computer and location and ID the culprit(s).

        __________

        My question to you, Seb, is: do you know who the McMullin supporter is? Is it the Brian Crates person you mention?

        This is worth following up since from all I’ve read, “ex”-CIA McMullin is very much anti-Trump and took part in the Deepstate cabal actions of leaking dirt on Trump to WaPo (e.g., according to Louise Mensch, a favorite recipient of deepstate leaks, McMullin was the one who secretly taped a GOP meeting where jokes were made about Russia paying Trump and gave the tape to WaPo) and possibly even involvement in the fabricated DNS logs to falsely implicate a Trump Organization server as being in secret contact with Alfa Bank of Russia to back up the false allegations in the Steele Dossier to obtain the FISA warrants based on lies.

        So it is worth investigating if the Q phenomenon is another dirty trick campaign against Pres. Trump.

Get A FISA Warrant to investigate all Mueller et al communications with the FBI/DOJ/Clntons/obama administration, before and after his appointment. Did they use the Ohr short-wave radio? Is it abuse of process and a violation of constitutional rights to force threats and bankruptcy on people to coerce testimony (yes, it should be). Has Mueller “fixed” criminal behavior for the clintons and others? Investigate him !!!!

    Did Sundance not watch PTs press conference before writing this?

    And why should we care what Muellers report says? Even if the Dem House were able to impeach, it would never get through the Senate.

    PT has set the stage perfectly. The whole point of the press conference was to lay the groundwork for the next two years. PT went out of his way to signal to the world that he was willing to work with the Ds to get things done. Talked about how the midterm may be a better outcome than having a slim R majority because there are always Rs who dont go with the rest. So he said the Ds can put legislation forward and he will sign it. Hell, the last thing he mentioned before taking questions was something about working on the “environment”!

    He has put all the pressure on the Ds to produce. If they dont and instead they just investigate and subpoeana, nothing will get done, the Ds will take the blame, get wiped out in 2020, and not only will Donald Trump still be President, he will get reelected.

    But the Ds are between a rock and a hard place. Their fringe base wants nothing but impeachment. Actually, thats really the only thing they can offer them. But its political suicide to do so. And PT made it clear that if the House goes down the investigation road, the Senate can too, “and do it much better.”

      At one point in the presser, PT said, almost in passing, and while some rude reporter was speaking over him, “But if the House doesnt do all that, then the Senate wont either.” As in, if the House backs off the investigations, the Senate will too. At first that worried me a little.

      Then PT fired Jeff Sessions.

      PT did not mean the HIS Department of Justice wont do THEIR job. To be honest, Senate investigations into the leaking by Dem politcians is really small potatoes compared to the criminals and crimes we are going after.

    Here’s what makes this removal an utterly brilliant political move: Mueller can’t do a damn thing about it. He can’t charge obstruction. Mueller’s probe hasn’t been ended, just who he reports to. Better yet, the Dems will most assuredly take the bait an charge headlong into an impeachment attempt over this. An attempt we all know will go nowhere.

    In response the Dem base will go bonkers, turning off any potential Independents that may vote for them in 2020 and heightening the chances that the GOP not only retakes the house, but potentially gets within striking distance of a filibuster proof Senate. All with newly elected and re-elected congress critters who are fully in the Trump camp.

    Top notch analytics by Sundance. I am still hoping that certain ‘in the know’ players within the House structure will shed as much sunlight as possible on Spygate prior to the end of the lame duck session but realistically might not happen. The American people, at least those who care, have seen just how prevalent a multi-tiered justice system is evident when comparing the inner workings of government and all the commoners. Sessions had to go because he was an ineffective panty waste within the Trump inner circle. Nothing more sinister than that.

    Since none of us has that magic crystal ball revealing the future, I choose to believe POTUS is a genius at turning lemons into lemonade. As someone posted elsewhere yesterday re an undertaking of this magnitude (paraphrased), ‘the unexpected is to be expected.’
    Regardless of whether or not J Sessions was a white or black hat is irrelevant. I choose to believe he was doing what POTUS wanted him to do – or maybe just accepted what could be delivered. Did he do it well or not, we may not be able to judge. Did circumstances change in the last 2 years? Of course. So did day to day objectives and actions.
    My motto in life has been ‘you do the best you can with what you have’. Maybe not too far from the song that ends the rallies – ‘sometimes you get what you need’.
    Whatever your opinion, you must admit this is a most exciting time to be living in Pres Trump’s America.

      Neither of those scenarios seem very likely. What does seem likely is that even the most brilliant and astute of presidents is limited in what he can do while faced with a hostile Congress. And in spite of the fact that both the House and Senate are nominally under Republican control, Trump has faced a much more hostile Congress than Obama ever did.,

    Please note all the new(ish) names (with few exceptions, including a particularly disappointing one) ganging up on Sundance and reproaching him that, while his analyses were mostly and overwhelmingly stellar and astute, for six years or more, he may have been wrong in one important respect at some point (Sessions/The Plan/The Ugly) which apparently would disqualify him from commenting in earnestness now. Gee, as if anybody else here was never wrong in their perfect lives.

    While Sundance has long since revised his analyses based on FACTS and REALITY, rabid / foaming at the mouth Sessionistas continue EVEN NOW to spout their nonsense, which ceased long ago to be charming and became the expression of unhealable pathologies.

    I for one didn’t buy the “oh Sessions’s a good man in the wrong place” shtick for a long time now. He is a dirty coward, a double-faced agent, a traitor whose punishment should be to share a cell with Hillary Clinton until the Second Coming. Sessions has demonstrated not only weakness, not only lack of loyalty to the President, but an extraordinarily callous indifference/hostility to the country itself and to its fate. His name will live in infamy. That is a FACT, because what is in play now is not President Trump’s own fortunes, it is not a political game, but the direction and even survival of the Nation itself.

    To those who take advantage of TCTH’s hospitality and attachment to free speech to attack their hosts, I cannot even tell “shame on you” any longer because you show no shame and no sense of personal and patriotic dignity.

      He turned his back on his responsibility as the chief law enforcement officer in the country. He smiled, and claimed both personal integrity and the integrity of the DOJ, for the two years since, while the traitors against this President and all of us who elected him beat up upon all of us, upon the foundations and fabric of our country. He lied, and no doubt still lies, with every smile and every look of self-satisfaction.
      Anyone with half a brain knew the “Russia” narrative was a political Big Lie the instant it was brought forth, to deny the 2016 election of this President. The ensuing plot was obvious at every point, to any “good guy”.
      The only thing that separates him from those other traitors is that he has not spewed forth personal venom against the President, as we have seen them do.
      That is not enough of a distinction to label him “not a bad guy”. He is as bad as the worst of them.
      Why hasn’t Rosenstein been fired at the same time? And Wray.

No one anywhere is investigating that one. Also why isn’t Antifa and their financiers label terrorists?

    The deep state won Tuesday. They’re not going without a fight. Everyone needs to recognize they have a direct pipeline to the big investment banks. That the current crony capitalism isn’t actually capitalism. Its corruption is what is giving rise to American socialism. Nor does it need tax cuts.. Ironically the bankers love both. All our stupid wars are truly nothing but a resource grabbing racket for the corporate world, and never meant to end. Finally Britain is neck deep in this rot, as is their twin Middle East Frankensteins. Sunshine is the biggest enemy of all of them.

    Candidate Donald Trump seemed to recognize all this. For some reason he decided to take it on. I am very hopeful there is method in his madness. Unfortunately Pence is not aware. Crazy as this sounds, I am not so sure all these Wiley Coyote investigations aren’t keeping Trump alive.

    Joe DiGenova observes that among Sessions’ many problems was a lack of “command presence”.

    Jeff Sessions is a very educated, highly skilled, scrupulously ethical attorney. He is not a leader of men or for that matter much of a manager. He never took charge at DOJ: He walked in on day one smarting from his rough confirmation hearings and mortified at the shadow of “Russian collusion” hanging over his hitherto pristine reputation. He walked into the DOJ, meekly, with hat in hand, and immediately recused from “all matters related to the 2016 election”. Which, as it turns out, included all the corruption of the Obama DOJ and FBI. Leaving the inmates to run the asylum, stiff-arming Congressional oversight, covering up their own crimes, and attacking the new administration with a malicious, abusive hoax investigation of President Trump and everyone who ever worked for him.

    If Jeff Sessions had walked into DOJ with his head held high, determined to TAKE CHARGE and not simply go to work being a good steward (i.e. a passive participant in business as usual) he would have immediately been suspicious when the Obama holdover “career DOJ” people came to him and told him “hey boss, you shouldn’t look at what’s behind those doors over there. You must recuse and leave us to our own devices.”

    The correct response would be “Thank you, but I’ll be the judge of that, skippy.” And then he would have looked into exactly what it was these weasels didn’t want him to see. And THAT’S when he would have immediately realized, to his great horror, exactly what Devin Nunes recognized the moment he saw it: That the Obama DOJ and FBI had been weaponized against the Trump campaign using fraudulent applications to the FISA court; and Crossfire Hurricane; and the whole bit.

    But instead, Sessions meekly submitted to the Black Hats, and set about playing cops and robbers while DAG Rosenstein was acting AG for all intents and purposes.

    A real tragedy.

It also makes me mad as hell that people like hildebeast and co have so far, walked away scott free on the many obvious crimes committed, and outright treasonous actions, not to mention the laundry mat of her’s named the Clinton Foundation. Also what I consider quite maddening is the way other demorats come to her defense as well as any other leftist, and try to explain away facts with lies. Sometimes I wonder if they have watched the same program/news conference, etC. as I have, it really gets absurd at times. As a former boss of mine used to say, don’t piss on my back and tell me its raining! It is depressing as heck that so many high level people in gov., politics, and especially the ones in law enforcement, (FBI), AND DOJ , have behaved in such an unprofessional manner, including unethical behavior, criminal behavior, and even traitorous and seditious behavior, and none of them are under indictment and were allowed to resign with pensions intact! That last one really chapps my butt! Justice and the IRS are swift to act when it comes to the average every day person on the street, but not when it involves connected leftwing democrats and cronies, especially anyone connected to hildebeast or the corrupt Obama administration, or al Sharpton! I used to consider myself to be an Independent, that was before 8 long years of Obama constantly lying to the American people, and doing everything possible to destroy and divide our country, and what made it even worse was the constant parade of democrats that agreed with him, made excuses, and enthusiastically helped him in trying to send the USA down the proverbial toilet bowl. And that includes one of them that I even voted for at one time, warner, who has turned out to be one of the most offensive to me, in my opinion he has betrayed not only the country, but our beloved Commonwealth of Virginia, of which one taproot of my family tree has been rooted since the 1650s, and another rooted in one of the 1st families of Virginia at Jamestown. I can no longer call myself an Independent in that I will never vote for another democrat as long as I live and at times only reluctantly vote straight republican because they are the lesser of two evils . I didn’t like Trump at first until he had gotten rid of half of his competition in the primary, and now he is about the only one in politics that I trust. I am not the brightest bulb in the box but I’m not a dumbass either,, I didn’t graduate coll. but have a measured IQ of 136 and have worked for everything I’ve got including my wife and my self’s dream home which with the help of my deceased father we built with our own hands. Trump did not have to put himself through this hell that he and his family have been subjected to for the past 2 plus years , he could have retired and enjoyed life but he wanted to save his country from going down the path to the new world order of the globalists in my opinion, the man even donates his salary, he does not profit from the office, he is doing this for the love of his country an I have the upmost respect for him and his family. I trust that he will be able, with the good Lord’s help, send these criminals and traitors to sit upon the scales of justice for the judgment of their behavior and prove that justice is indeed blind.

    And Im sorry but this last paragraph is nonsense:

    “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.”

    1. Who cares what Muellers report states?
    2. Who cares who’s in charge of the House of Representatives when the IGs investigation “lands”?
    3. The Dems have no plan, no leverage, no angle. They have the power to impeach but not

      Remember all the many times Speaker John Boehner sadly explained how the GOP can’t get anything done because we only had the House, 1/2 of 1/3 of the government.

      That’s where the Democrats are now. So we’ll see, if they are as helpless as Boehner was.

      Also Mueller’s “report” is to be delivered to Whittaker and may not be made public. Whittaker can chuck it in the can if he wants.

    Somewhere yesterday someone quoted Judge Nap, of all people, who said Whitaker was not qualified for the Acting AG position. Tried to find it without luck, so here – for those who run into that argument – is the correct information from Andrew McCarthy:

    Matthew Whitaker joined the Trump Justice Department as Sessions’s chief of staff in October 2017. The date is relevant. The president has named him as acting attorney general under the Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (the relevant provisions are codified at Sections 3345 and 3346 of Title 5, U.S. Code). There has been some commentary suggesting that because Whitaker was in a job (chief of staff) that did not require Senate confirmation, he could not become the “acting officer” in a position (AG) that calls for Senate confirmation. Not so. The Vacancies Act enables the president to name an acting officer, who may serve as such for 210 days, as long as the person named has been working at the agency or department for at least 90 days in a fairly high-ranking position. Whitaker qualifies.

    Judge Nap should stick with traffic tickets.

    I knew all that Stealth Jeff nonsense was garbage when they first implied Mueller a white hat at one time.

    Some people saying their will be indictments over this FISA deep state stuff in 2019 and it wont just be McCabe for lying to the investigators. We shall see. This from people that have always laughed about the Stealth Jeff type crazy theories.

    I don’t see how showing the facts that prove this investigation as being a criminal fraud, can be considered obstruction. That is crazy.

      I think reasonable and unbiased people agree with you. However, this legal process has been muddied by politics. Mueller (via Rosenstein) basically levied a threat to PDJT (if I understand SD’s interpretation). He (Mueller) said “expose the DS and I will drag this out until you are gone, thereby casting a net over your efforts and cloud over your legacy”. As much as President Trump hates this, and may continue to fight in other ways, he has taken a deep breath and said “touche”. Live to fight another day. So in other words, it wouldn’t be “obstruction” per se, it’s just he threat of charging you with it to drag this out.

          I don’t think PDJT is giving in, just shifting strategy/timing to suite the battle at-hand. I think President Trump will play nice, knowing Mueller has nothing, let him release his mulit-million dollar report to quiet down the naysayers, then release all sorts of wrath on the swamp. I have full faith in President Trump’s ability to balance draining the swamp with furthering his other MAGA agenda.

  43. This board has changed and, IMO, what is missing is the kindness, humility and civility – the appearance of snark was disappointing. And I am NOT exempt, unfortunately, as I so sadly displayed yesterday morning; indeed, in other comments today, I wasn’t as kind as I could have been. But, here is what I know:

    1. As far as I am aware, there is not ONE person here, whether that be SD, Ad.Rem., or any single person commenting, who is a personal confidant of our President and privy to his plans.

    2. NONE OF US KNOW WHAT HIS PLANS ARE!!!!

    3. Were it NOT for SD’s diligent hard work, I would be utterly lost in the quagmire of all the data out there. I don’t need to always agree with his opinions in order to ALWAYS appreciate his knowledge, abilities, and willingness to provide the critical research and intelligent analysis we all need.

    4. Sessions: I truly believe he was in WAY over his head as AG, as well as his mental ability to meet PDJT on an equal basis. He is also very inflexible in his opinions of what he considers to be honorable actions, and there were too many areas of disagreement between the two. However, I do NOT believe he was a part of the DS or corrupt in any way. Naive in many ways, yes, but NOT corrupt. And I will say this again: had this been the OTHER party, WE would have been demanding a recusal. Can we please stop calling the man a traitor who needs to be hung from the nearest tree?

    5. Q has just as much chance at being right as SD does. As for me, I am 50/50 on Q. I certainly won’t base any important actions or decisions on the posts/info because it is just that – one more source of info to throw into the mix. Whether right or wrong, one HAS to appreciate the huge numbers who have been “red pilled” by Q – you cannot tell me that is a bad thing. It can be an uplifting interlude for some who get down and are feeling defeated – again, you cannot tell me that is a bad thing. When someone places ALL of their hopes and dreams in Q, however, and completely ignores reality, THEN you’ve got a problem.

    Phew…..thanks for reading. Let’s always try to be kind, eh?

    Is Sessions a white hat, a black hat, or just incompetent? I don’t know.

    I was thinking about old spy movies where the agent is given his assignment and told, “you understand, that if you are caught, we will deny knowing anything about you. If you succeed, no one will know your name, but you will have the honor of serving your country and the eternal gratitude of the President (or Queen or whatever).

    I’m not an insider in President Trump’s administration, so I don’t know the truth about Jeff Sessions. But I cannot join in stoning a man who, up until now, had a lifetime of being a white hat. So, I will give Sessions the benefit of the doubt, and withhold throwing my stone.

    • IKR? Some years ago, I think it was Peter Schweizer did an in-depth investigation of corruption in the Senate and Sessions was the ONLY one would could not be connected to dirty money. The man is lacking in ways, no doubt, but honor is not one of them.

      Sessions surely realized he had been hoodwinked by the Black Hats at some point during his tenure at DOJ – probably around the time his Deputy appointed a Special Counsel in blatant violation of the law and every DOJ rule and policy. However, he didn’t seem able to do anything about it.

      But his Chief of Staff is this (reportedly) tough-as-nails Whitaker guy who seems to know EXACTLY what’s going on.

      And, we can’t forget that all this played out as President Trump fought back against the “Russian collusion” narrative that Sessions’ recusal made exponentially stronger vis-à-vis the Mueller Probe. Over a 2-year period with a very steep learning curve for the President, as he learned the ropes of running the Executive Branch and earned political capital with the GOP at large and Congress.

      President Trump today is much stronger politically than he was on Jan. 20, 2017. He now has staunch allies in Congress in leadership positions, where before he was considered suspect with a distinct possibility that he would resign in disgrace.

      Search the term; lots of posts about it. Basically, “The Big Ugly” is the long-awaited day of reckoning when President Trump finally drops the hammer and purges the swamp of all its corrupt criminals.

      Basically, when Stealth Jeff comes out of Stealth mode and becomes the Avenging Angel.

      A sort of Washington, DC version of Armageddon where PDJT fights the final battle against the Deep State by revealing it and arresting the key players.

      Neither stupid nor dirty; just a nice man out of his league. He grew up in the swamp, he believes in the government, he understands/understood the government was dirty under Obama and thought he could fix it from the inside without a lot of fanfare, i.e. so we wouldn’t know just how corrupt and dirty it was. He didn’t want us losing faith in the FBI, DOJ, CIA etc. Too late for all of us here — we know how crooked and corrupt they all are. But there are A LOT of people out there who get their news and information from the MSM so they are unaware of half the stuff we know. Good people always underestimate the degree of evil in bad people (like Clapper, Holder, Obama, Hillary, Strzok, Page, Comey, Mueller etc). I look at it as a family that has lice. They don’t want the world to know they have lice, so work on getting rid of the lice w/o telling anyone. Comey et al are our lice.

        Very good examples, those you have named. We still don’t know the extent of evil of some of them. But Mueller is just about the dirtiest, most corrupt and lawless cop America has ever produced. Even I know that and I’m no expert on his past. The others have either probably outdone him … or they have most certainly outdone him.
