Trump, what a nice guy. Sessions was loyal, follows the conservative agenda, and did what he thought was proper in recusing himself from the "Russian Investigation". No loyalty from Trumpyboy, just bashing and bullying. (I don't like Sessions but I thought Trump had one good value, being loyal. But, nope he doesn't. Still looking for one of his values that I respect.)

    Trump is a pig that shouldn’t be respected. He is looking for loyalty everywhere he can cover his lying ass. I cant wait until they impeach his crooked ass and his cabinet. Just f**king America up that all and stealing from the government

    Trump has operated Casinos that staged various spectacles, having been to a couple at the Taj in it’s youth… I can say Trump knows what he’s doing or who to hire when it comes to promotions. Trump was on WWF Wrestling for more than a minute, he knows how to generate confrontation where none exists. Trump WAS one of the most successful Reality Shows, Trump knows how to create & to the extent that drama is manageable… manage it. Sessions is now public about the FBI looking into a few matters that have the President reasonably concerned. The White House is a fishbowl already, it cannot be a sieve as well just because you don’t like the President.

    Unmasking bothers the hell out of me because I know the NSA has the power & the hardware to eavesdrop on every single call & scan every single blog, text or eMail… Facebook post, etc..
    The leaks are a serious issue & may be felonies some could even be argued as treasonous because they simply attempt to invigorate the calls for impeachment from people who would call for impeachment if they found out he doesn’t like mustard.
    The Russian Collusion Hypothesis is just dangerous to the nation, it needs to cleaned up & then shut up now. It’s dangerous in the exact same way the birther movement was, it seriously challenged our ability to hold a legitimate election. The difference is that Obama could at any time have easily shut that down himself. Trump cannot shut this down, not even if he sat every document, SIM card, hard drive & calendar event he’s every had on the desk of Chuck Shumer tomorrow & after thorough “closed door” analysis by the Senate’s most motivated attack dogs they still had nothing. Trump can only shut this down by getting shot… at.

      I think Trump is getting some payback for bad mouthing the intelligence community … he only has one style, confrontation … and sometimes that just feeds the insanity. I blame the news (the the public for eating it up) for beating this Russian connection to death. If there is a crime, it will be in financial transactions between Trump and Russia … but until and if such evidence shows up the news should concentrate on important issues like healthcare, taxes, infrastructure, etc.

    Jeff Sessions’ recusal was a serious mistake. It seriously harmed the executive and gave substantial aid to the Russia-gate hysteria, which is seriously harming US democracy.

      He really had no choice under the law. He should have never taken the job in the 1st place, knowing the law as well as he does.

        Which law do you have in mind?

        July 29, 2017

          28 U.S.C. § 528

          July 29, 2017
          1. stevehayes13

            Which says: “The Attorney General shall promulgate rules and regulations which require the disqualification of any officer or employee of the Department of Justice, including a United States attorney or a member of such attorney’s staff, from participation in a particular investigation or prosecution if such participation may result in a personal, financial, or political conflict of interest, or the appearance thereof. Such rules and regulations may provide that a willful violation of any provision thereof shall result in removal from office.”

            The law clearly does not require the Attorney General to recuse him or herself from any investigation – rather it requires the AG to make rules for the prevention of subordinates who may have a conflict of interest from investigating.

              That the 1st of 2 laws & a DoJ regulation.
              28 U.S.C. § 528 requires the AG to make the regulation
              28 C.F.R. § 45.2 is the regulation at the DoJ
              18 U.S.C. § 208 requires the AG to follow the regulation.
              There doesn’t seem to be a criminal penalty for breaking the laws & regulation, my opinion is that it’d do no good anyway given that the AG is a political appointment by the person who gets to pardon all crimes.

              That’s Harvard & Stanford Scholars on the subject, just to get the polar arguments. My legal citations came from the Harvard article.

              The first of these references (a blog by a student) actually makes clear that Sessions wasn’t required as a matter of law to recuse himself. The second reference places the burden of its author’s argument on a report by the New York Times, which alleged extensive contacts between Trump campaign personnel and Russian intelligence officers – a report that James Comey on oath characterised as inaccurate. And again the reference makes it clear that Sessions was not required by law to recuse himself.

              I don’t know … the appearance thereof … seems pretty broad. Politicially it was the correct move, I think.

              Politically it was terrible. He recused himself before the Deputy AG had been appointed, meaning an Obama appointee, the Acting Deputy AG, was in charge. In other words, Jeff Sessions put Trump’s enemies in charge of the investigation to look into the Clinton campaign invented allegations, which was designed to destroy Trump.

              One could argue that appointing Jeff Sessions to AG was THE political mistake. I don’t like Trump or Sessions so I am not losing too much sleep over it. Even if Muller is an Obama appointee, if there is no crime by Trump what will it matter? I think it is good to have someone motivated to find evidence and/or a crime if there is one instead of just there just being a whitewash.

              Mueller was appointed by Rosenstein.

    I would argue that Sessions like Comey is used to doing things behind closed doors & Trump rode a wave of populism into office. One of the biggest demands his base had was transparency in the actions of the government. They want to see Sessions working, Trump understands this & Trump is probably also sick of being 24/7 the only story on 35 channels of “news.” I don’t know about that, maybe he feeds off it… maybe he just uses it when it serves his purpose. The point is that Trump’s base, the people who call their Congressmen WANT to see that there IS an investigation & that IT IS Doing Some THING. While I didn’t vote for him & I am certain we could have done better, I appreciate this. I am sick of people in the political class getting a pass for things those in the service would get 20 or 7 years making little rocks by hand, while fighting for their “right” to get expensive hormone injections daily at DoD/VA expense.

      More independent prosecutors the better. Probably should have been one for Hillary, too. But, if I am wishing for a xmas gift then it would be term limits that would reduce time in office and thus the opportunity to do harm …
