Why Trump must Fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions

August 2, 2017

Our mass mail campaign here at OpDeepState.com has generated an overwhelming amount of letters to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, demanding he arrest Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and the pedophiles in Congress.  In fact, the “Sessions letters” have been the most printed and mailed out of all our print and mail letters.

We have been following the activities of Jeff Sessions since his confirmation by the US Senate.  Sessions has given speeches stating how he won’t tolerate pedophilia, and how his Justice Department will arrest the perpetrators at the top of the international child trafficking rings, yet, nothing.  Pedophilia is the common link between the elite.  Blackmail is used in conjunction with facial recognition software, and that is how the CIA, AIPAC, and other Deep State organizations control the US Congress and the Senate.

Who is Jeff Sessions, really?

According to Wikipedia, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has had an illustrious career in the US Army as a captain, and has dedicated his life to public service in the US Senate representing Alabama.  He was considered one the most conservative member of the Senate.

Sessions was an early supporter of Donald Trump, and was considered for the Vice Presidency, only to lose out to globalist Mike Pence.  During his Senate career, Sessions was known to fight against the legalization of marijuana, and has even been behind illegal search and seizure in his own State, a violation of the 4th Amendment.

On July 21, 2017, The American Conservative reported Jeff Sessions: Feds Have the Right to Seize Your Cash, Property.  This is a huge red flag and an outrage to those of us in the Truth and Liberty Movement who are strict Constitutionalists.

He hasn’t yet sent federal agents into the ever-growing number of states that legalize medical and recreational marijuana, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions is becoming the kind of law enforcement officer that criminal justice reformers feared he would be from the start.

On Wednesday, Sessions declared that civil asset forfeiture was back. It didn’t go anywhere, mind you. The controversial process in which police can not only seize property like cars and cash they suspect are connected to a crime, but profit from it too, was gently restricted at the federal level by former-Obama Attorney General Eric Holder. Now, under Sessions, no matter what state law says, “Under the Attorney General’s Order, federal adoption of all types of assets seized lawfully by state or local law enforcement under their respective state laws is authorized whenever the conduct giving rise to the seizure violates federal law.”

Sessions claims that law enforcement is going to prioritize assets associated with violent drug crimes, but there is no reason why police won’t just go back to using the Drug War to buy their departments new toys, as they’ve been doing for the past 30 years.

A decade ago, only a handful of astute people realized that this confusing-sounding policy was a scam. Today that knowledge has spread, helped along by fun facts, like more money was taken through asset forfeiture in 2014 than burglary (some $5 billion total). Those startling numbers, along with the desire to see police cleaned up in general, has made forfeiture reform popular indeed, with 84 percent of Americans now saying they want to see the practice ended altogether.

On July 24th, the LA Times reported:

Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions faced increasing questions about his future on Monday, a day that began with a fresh public slap from his boss,  President Trump, and continued with new calls to testify about his conversations with the Russian ambassador last year.

Sessions, the first senator to endorse Trump and a strong influence during last year’s campaign, raised the president’s ire earlier this year with his decision to step aside from overseeing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any possible cooperation by people associated with the Trump campaign. 

Sessions acted on advice from the department’s ethics lawyers, who said he should not play a role in an investigation involving a campaign on which he worked. But in a startling interview with the New York Times last week, Trump said Sessions’ decision to recuse was unfair to him, and he made it clear that he blamed Sessions for the fact that he is now facing a widening special counsel investigation.

Since then, things have gotten worse for the attorney general.

On Monday morning, Trump tweeted that Sessions was “beleaguered” and questioned why the Justice Department wasn’t doing more to investigate Hillary Clinton’s dealings with Russia.

On July 26th, the Chicago Tribune reported:

In invoking Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server, and complaining that his own attorney general is not holding her accountable, President Donald Trump rehashed concerns that have preoccupied him since the campaign last year.

But his series of tweets about Clinton, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe misstated key facts and omitted others, including one very relevant one: Sessions has had little to say about Clinton because he recused himself earlier this year from any investigation of her. Taken together, the tweets point to Trump’s inability even now to turn his attention from Clinton, and also harken to suggestions in the campaign that he might use the Justice Department as a mechanism to punish a political opponent.

A look at the statements and how they hold up to scrutiny:

What did Trump mean when he said Sessions had taken a “very weak position” on Clinton’s “crimes” and on intelligence leakers?

The tweet covers a lot of ground, but it seems to be, in part, a clear reference to Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.

It is true that Clinton wasn’t prosecuted for mishandling classified information, but that had nothing to do with Sessions.

James Comey as FBI director last July declined to recommend charges against Clinton, saying neither she nor her aides had intentionally broken any laws regarding the handling of classified material. The Justice Department under Attorney General Loretta Lynch accepted the FBI’s conclusion.

In asking “where are the emails,” Trump seems to be referring to the tens of thousands of emails that Clinton deleted because she said they were personal in nature. Trump has repeatedly suggested that Clinton should be investigated over the missing emails. In the 2016 campaign, he even seemed to invite the Russians to look for them.

Trump also conveyed his frustration over leaks of classified intelligence that in some cases have embarrassed him and his administration. But the Justice Department under Sessions actually has brought a case — charging a U.S. government contractor in June of leaking classified documents to a news organization.

What does any of this have to do with Sessions?

It’s not clear if Trump remembers this, but Sessions at his January confirmation hearing actually forfeited his right to be involved in any Clinton-related investigation.

The Alabama Republican was the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump and was a loyal and reliable presence on campaign stops. Video online shows him smiling from a stage as a crowd chants “Lock her up” in reference to Clinton.

So when Sessions was asked at the hearing what role he would have in any Clinton-related investigations — Trump, after all, had floated the idea of reopening the email investigation and of appointing a special prosecutor — the senator said he would recuse himself.

“It was a highly contentious campaign,” Sessions said at the time. “I, like a lot of people, made comments about the issues in that campaign.” He said: “With regard to Secretary Clinton and some of the comments I made, I do believe that that could place my objectivity in question.”

Unstated in these tweets but central to Trump’s dissatisfaction with Sessions: The attorney general also recused himself from the continuing investigation into Russian interference in the election and possible coordination between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.

Why was Trump tweeting about McCabe receiving $700,000 from Clinton for his wife? What’s that about?

The tweet in question — “Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” — is a misstatement of fact.

McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, ran for the Virginia Senate in 2015 and received routine donations from Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime friend and ally of Clinton. McAuliffe’s political action committee and the Democratic Party of Virginia gave her campaign $700,000, an unremarkable amount for a competitive Senate race that year.

Those donations also happened before the FBI says McCabe was promoted to deputy director of the FBI and took a supervisory role in the email investigation. He became acting director in May after Trump fired Comey.

How can Americans expect the Swamp aka the Sewer to be drained with a wimp like Jeff Sessions as the “top cop” of the United States and supposed leader?

Perhaps President Trump should have taken Jeff Sessions’ offer to resign seriously.

Last night on the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN), Susan Lindauer stated “Sessions is an old man who is looking to top off his career with a high position in government”.  Or, perhaps the Deep State has more dirt on the Attorney General than we are aware of.
