Democratic senators call for investigation into Jeff Sessions over James Comey firing huffp.st...

Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation. He shouldn't have had anything to do with Comey's firing.

The elusive Comey memo that could indicate that President Trump attempted to "obstruct justice" is of most interest to the anti-Trumpers right now. That's easy to understand...though hard to prove. It would be Comey says... vs Trump says...

Of course it is. There has been no evidence implicating Trump in the Russia collusion investigation, and Rosenstein has taken it out of the Democrats' hands. They got exactly what they said they wanted, but by getting it, it took things out of their hands. What's left? Comey's firing.

Interestingly enough, I don't think Comey has said a word about it. The memo story is based on two 'unnamed associates' who read it to a reporter. No one else has seen it yet.

The FBI Director does more than investigate Russia on behalf of crazed democrats.
Jeff Sessions did not recuse himself from his authority over the FBI, and as the Russian investigation had nothing to do with Comey's firing, he was perfectly within his rights to endorse Rosensteins recommendation.

They already started making excuses why this will not amount to anything.

They are claiming Mueller worked for a law firm that represents Ivanka.


Well he has authorization to investigate russia and anything else that might arise from the investigation so its entirely possible it could include clinton. The accusations started by Democrats occurred during the election. Democrats keep claiming the hacking of the DNC / Podesta emails altered the outcome of the election and they claim it directly helped Trump.


You are 100% correct! Clinton and her e-mail issue are at the crux of all this, so there should be a large part of the investigation digging into all that a bit more in depth. And this special prosecutor has the ability to recommend charges, should they be warranted.

Wouldn't it be cool of the main promise Trump made during the campaign was fulfilled because of Democrats pushing the false narrative a bit too far? Damn, I'd smile for weeks.

It's quite telling that there was a ton of public evidence against Clinton, and obvious reasons to suspect a conflict of interest (AG meeting with subject's husband, Assistant Director of FBI financial ties to Clintons) yet there were no recusals and no special counsel for that (hence the reason why they're all under investigation right now by the DOJ IG). Here there's zero public evidence but just to avoid even the appearance of impropriety the GOP AG recused himself and there's a special counsel even though there's no indication of conflicts of interest.

Shows you who is more concerned about transparency and unbiased application of the law doesn't it?

That statement alone is essentially an admission of obstruction of justice. He's clearly implying that he fired Comey at least in large part because of the "Russia thing with Trump." Do you think that was a very smart comment on his part? It also goes to my paraphrasing with "irrelevant" as his stated reason for firing Comey has absolutely nothing to do with the recommendation.

This. ^^^^

This is the problem. No, it wasn't a 'smart comment'... as far as that goes, having an interview with Lester Holt wasn't a 'smart decision' either. But it was the right decision. When was the last time Obama or Hillary gave an interview to an antagonistic reporter? They didn't. They took the 'smart' way out and only talked to reporters who had sympathy for them. Trump instead upheld yet another campaign promise by walking into a lion's den in the name of transparency.

And the response? Look what he said! He's guilty! I can take his words to be a confession. IMPEACH HIM!!! NOW!!! Trial? Trial? We don't need no stinkin' trial!

That's how Syria does things... it's how North Korea does things. Is that the type of country you want? Because it's the type of country you are openly advocating for.


I think that Trump supporters won't be swayed because they're emotionally invested. I think that's probably just simple human nature.

You're probably right. That does not mean it's desirable.


But hey, you can unreasonably hold me to a far higher standard than Donald Trump as you defend him. I mean, I'm a forum poster and he's just the President of the United States of America.

I hold him to a very high standard, just apparently not in the same areas you do. I want results; you are apparently more enamored with show and pomp and circumstance. I have followed your threads for some time, and I know people have told you, over and over, "We don't care about that; we care about this." You simply cannot accept that.

No one supporting Trump cares about analyzing every syllable that comes out of his mouth. We didn't hire him to talk; we hired him to do.


An impeachment is the due process under our law. There's no criminal indictment of the President while in office.

So why were people clamoring for Impeachment before Trump took office?

The impeachment I am hearing about has nothing to do with 'due process.' It has everything to do with denying the will of the electorate and a 200+ year old voting process because some people don't agree with the voters and want a speedy, not due, process to veto the people.

Regardless of how guilty you might think Trump is, he has the right to defend himself. Regardless of what the cop who stopped you might think, you have the right to defend yourself. Without that right, there is not and can not be any due process. Period.

I'm so glad to see this happening. However, this is a long drawn out process. This will not shut up the left, it will not stop the witch hunts.

But it is refreshing to know that at least some are seeing the hypocrisy!

Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation. He shouldn't have had anything to do with Comey's firing.

Did he recuse himself from being the Attorney General?

He received a recommendation from the Deputy Attorney General recommending an action, reviewed it, and approved it to the President. That's what the Attorney General does.

Exactly. Sessions did little more than signing it. It's standard procedure for a recommendation from the Deputy AG to go through the AG before going to the President. It wasn't Sessions's decision.

He didnt.. The Deputy AG did though. Secondly he is the AG so he has a right to know about Comey and a right to speak to the president about him along with the Dep AG.

Ironic that Democrats want to usurp the will of the voters with regards to Trump while at the same time defending their actions in court by usurping the will of Democrats during the primaries.

Says a lot about Democrats, the DNC and just how out of touch yet above the law elitist they really are.

Yeah. I've already sharpened the tines on my pitchfork and I have a torch set aside ready to flame up.
I've even purchased an angry peasant costume at party city so I can look the part.

Because the russia bs started with the democrats / DNC / Clinton accusing the russians of hacking the dnc / clinton emails, russia changing the outcome of the election, russia and trump collusion, etc.

You guys seem to ignore those facts, that the left created the russia excuse. They dont get to make all these accusations only to be let off the hook when its confirmed nothing occurred.

Now the Democrats, including Clinton, get to own their mess.
