    It's just so sad, all Sessions had to do was stand up and tell the truth, I will not recuse myself because there is no crime, there is no collusion, my office of Attorney General will defend this President, his agenda he was elected on and the will of the people of the United States who elected him to achieve it That's all he had to say.

    The attorney general is not the president’s lawyer

    by Erin Dunne
    | August 15, 2018 08:41 AM



    On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted his anger at U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying, in reference to the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Muller: “If we had a real Attorney General, this Witch Hunt would never have been started. Looking at the wrong people.”

    This isn’t the first time that Trump has expressed his anger with Sessions, who recused himself from the investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election. Indeed, the president said previously that had he known that Sessions would recuse himself, he would have “put a different attorney general in.”

    In an interview with the New York Times in 2017, Trump took personal issue with Sessions’ decision saying that recusing himself “was very unfair to the president.”





    The problem with all of this is that Trump doesn’t seem to understand the role of the U.S. attorney general. The AG is not the president’s lawyer but the country’s. That means that the attorney general does not defend the president but, instead, represents the country in legal matters.

    This seems to be a distinction that is lost on the president who first sought to prevent Sessions from recusing himself and, after he did, has endlessly berated Sessions for not properly showing loyalty.

    To be clear, Sessions had good reason to recuse himself, and he was right to do so. He faced a flood of criticism, including concerns from Republican leadership, over his own previously undisclosed contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the Trump campaign. Since then, Sessions has defended his decision, citing regulations from the Department of Justice, which is led by the attorney general, that forbid DOJ officials from investigating campaigns they worked on.

    Although there is plenty to disagree with Jeff Sessions on, on this matter he is correct and President Trump would do well to remember why.

    If Trump is right that his campaign did nothing wrong, then the last thing the president would want is the findings of the investigation to be tainted and thus viewed as illegitimate. Given Sessions' own involvement with the Trump campaign and his contacts with Russia, he could not credibly exonerate the president.

    There is no legal matter, because there is no crime, there is nothing to "exonerate". The whole thing is a DOJ SCAM against an elected President and his campaign, supporters, friends, lawyer, family, associates, White House officials, and business. It's a WITCH HUNT that's framing people left and right, ruining their lives, careers, bankrupting them and for some costing them their freedom simply because they supported Donald J Trump for President.

    The Sessions DOJ is the DemoQuacks New Best Friend. Don't take my word for it, ask anyone at CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post.

    It's a totally unheard of situation of growing historic importance because it's impacting national security and could impact the mid-term elections. For Jeff Sessions to make the statement that the US DOJ will not be influenced by political considerations is the absolutely dumbest thing I've ever heard. The US Attorney General is a POLITICAL APPOINTMENT, and the US DOJ is drenched and drowning in political considerations which is why they indicted Russians, why they indicted Paul Manafort, why they are investigating Michael Cohen, why they sought pleas from Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos, why it had FISA warrants on Carter Page, why it gave immunity to David Pecker and Allen Weisselberg, etc., etc., etc.

    It's just mind-boggling what is going on. It's surreal, like we're in a Twilight Zone. All because Jeff Sessions either agrees with everything that is going on or because he recused and turned his back on the President, the campaign, innocent Americans and our country. It's just unbelievable what is going on and because Sessions is the Attorney General, the job he wanted, then refused to do the job, there is no one else to blame for this disgrace than him.

    There is much, much more than the Russian collusion probe to Attorney General Sessions job! He is doing his job and in my opinion is doing a damn good job of it. His recusal from the probe had nothing to do with turning his back on the President, actually his recusal erased the appearance of any impropriety, which there would have been plenty had he not recused.

    Even Trump's own lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, says Jeff Session did the right thing when he recused.

    Jeff Sessions turned his back on more than the President, he turned his back on the American people when he recused himself from the "Russia Collusion Probe".

    I honestly don't know what Jeff Sessions has to do with the "Russian Collusion Probe". His job is to stop illegal immigration, and he is doing a damn good job, better than anyone else in the history of that position. If we lose him, we're screwed.

    Sessions is doing some real good on the issue of illegal immigration, but that is not his job actually. The position of Attorney General was not created to deport illegal aliens, the position of Attorney General was to defend the Executive Branch, protect the civil rights of American citizens and prosecute crimes identified by the federal agencies. The AG and DOJ were not created to conduct malicious prosecutions against politicians or citizens for election activity.

    The DOJ is not Trump's personal law firm, nor is Jeff Sessions his personal lawyer, and anyone outside of Trump's cheerleading section will pretty much tell you that Sessions recusal was the right thing to do. Heck, even Trump's own lawyer has said as much.

    All the time Trump is using whining about his Attorney General pick through twitter would be better utilized twittering about border security, illegal immigration, asylum, etc.!

    It's not hard to see that Trump is clearly afraid of something. That's why he's constantly lashing out at Sessions. He wanted an Eric Holder type, but instead ended up with an ethical and principled man. However, that being said, I think his fright is less about Russian collusion and more about having Mueller delving into his and his families financial dealings during the course of the investigation. He's also understandably worried for Don Jr. and Jared Kushner. It's not hard to believe that a man like Trump could have some bones in the closet. Some of them have already been revealed, but thankfully none of them to date are actual criminal acts. Let's just hope something more significant than a Stormy Daniels payoff isn't uncovered.

    In my opinion, Trump is doing a lot of damage to his brand with his excessive whining. Of course I can understand how that may not bother someone riding in the engine or the first car of the Trump train, but for those of closer to the caboose, it's irritating and looks defensive in nature.

    Just quit with the crybaby whining, Mr. president, and concentrate on what the American public voted you in office to do!

    Trump isn't saying and has never said that the Attorney General is his "personal lawyer". That's Never-Trump and DemoQuack Speak, and wow do you have it down. The Attorney General is supposed to protect the civil rights of Americans engaged in political activity, people like Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, Roger Stone, and so many others. Political activity is a First Amendment Right of every American, more important than "religious liberty" if you ask me, because without the one you can't have the other. The DOJ is NOT supposed to put a target on the back of every American who supported or worked for Trump and conduct grand threatening inquisitions of them in some disgusting effort to defeat a candidate in an election, to blackmail him when he wins anyway, or when he doesn't fall for that one either, the "insurance policy", fabricate a case to impeach the President by coercing and squeezing supporters and people who worked in his campaign.

    I realize you don't understand this, but I would have expected Jeff Sessions to understand it, and it is very disappointing that he clearly doesn't.
