Attorney General Jeff Sessions is talking a big game this week as he signaled to the American people that he was taking aim at the two biggest crooks in America – Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton!
In a wide ranging interview with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News the Attorney General promised that the Justice Department would be investigating both the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton for various and sundry crimes.
Of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Sessions said, “We’re going to do our job in his department properly and correctly. We can’t do that in the media we’re going to restore the rule of law.”
Maria Bartiromo: So you feel there are matters you can get into, for example, there’s a lot of feeling out there that the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation was a sham. Loretta Lynch told Jim Comey to call it a matter and that’s exactly what he did. In fact, it was a criminal investigation; we know that he wrote an exoneration letter Jim Comey did before he even did the interview with Hillary Clinton. What have you learned in terms of the opening reopening of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation? Will there be charges? Will there be accountability here sir?
Jeff Sessions: Maria, we’re going to do our job in his department properly and correctly, and I’m not going to be led into a discussion of all the details of matters that you might be interested in. We can’t do that in the media we’re going to restore the rule of law, we’re to restore propriety in how cases are managed and that’s all I can promise you.
Maria Bartiromo: Do you regret recusing yourself from anything related to Russia sir?
Jeff Sessions: I believe I did the right thing, they only thing I could do. I participated in this campaign and as such under explicit regulations of the Department of Justice; no one can participate in the investigation of a campaign in which they were an active participant.
Of the Obama administration’s FISA abuses, Sessions said, “Every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at. I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.”
Maria Bartiromo: Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA Court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for that dossier?
Jeff Sessions: Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate at the Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.
Here’s the full interview:
I don’t want to get my hopes up, because people as politically connected and powerful as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are usually above the law.
Will Jeff Sessions be able to bring justice to the American people?
