Attorney General Jeff Sessions is once again in crisis.
Sessions appeared before a group of reporters and was asked a career defining question.
And the Attorney General answered it with the seven words that will leave you speechless.
At a press conference in Boston, Sessions was asked about Meadow’s and Jordan’s effort to impeach Rosenstein.
Sessions stunned Trump supporters by declaring “My deputy Rod Rosenstein is highly capable. I have the highest confidence in him.”
Sessions then pivoted to implore Congress to ignore Rosenstein orchestrating a Deep State cover up over the FBI’s scandalous covert operation against Donald Trump.
“What I would like Congress to do is to focus on some of the legal challenges that are out there. We need Congress to deal with the immigration question,” said Sessions exclaimed. “There are loopholes in our laws that are being exploited. We need to get them focused and we are pleading with them to do so. Our job and our enforcement officers’ jobs are far more difficult than they need to be. Common sense legislation can make a big difference. That is where I’d like to see them focus their time.”
Sessions words further infuriated Trump supporters since they echoed statements made by members of the “resistance.”
Disgraced former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates – an Obama holdover who was fired for refusing to defend President Trump’s travel ban in court tweeted:
While the absurd threat to impeach Rod Rosenstein will undoubtedly fail, using the Department of Justice as a prop for political theater does lasting damage to this vital democratic institution. The men and women of DOJ and the people of our country deserve better
Nancy Pelosi also rode to Rosenstein’s rescue like a white knight.
At her weekly press conference Pelosi ranted “The fact that truth and fact and data and evidence have never been something that the Republicans have sought or based through decision making on, so if they would want to hurt Rosenstein so that they could hurt the Mueller investigation. But hopefully saner minds will prevail on the Republican side. And they won’t bring this up. If they did, we welcome their voting on undermining our democracy.”
Sessions is the nation’s chief law enforcement official.
It falls to the Attorney General to enforce the rule of law.
But by siding with Rosenstein when Rosenstein is thumbing his nose at the people’s elected representatives by not complying with document requests then Sessions is not defending the institutions of American democracy.
Sessions is enabling a cover up to conceal the true nature a scheme hatched by forces inside the government to nullify the 2016 Presidential election.
If institutions have been corrupted by individuals within who believe they can exercise veto power over the decisions made by the American people on Election Day then America is no longer a Democracy.
When pundits on TV blabber about how President Trump is “undermining faith in institutions” what they really mean is President Trump is helping Americans see that the ruling class in Washington is working against the interests of the people they purportedly serve.
Jeff Sessions had a chance to stand up for the most American of all ideals – the idea that the people are able to choose their own leaders – and instead some Trump supporters believe he pledged his allegiance to the swamp.
