Should Sally Yates Be Indicted?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Sally Yates is -- a U. of Georgia-educated lawyer, magna cum laude no less -- with nothing more than attitude in lieu of the law.  In reality, she's a wannabe demonstrator.  She deserves to be indicted and have her license to practice law yanked.  But no, she shouldn't go to jail.  She should get a job and do something useful -- far from the law.

Conservatives to Mitch McConnell: Confirm Attorney General Jeff Sessions NOW

Democrats announced long ago that they wouldn't vote to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, and broke all the traditional rules of Senate decorum and comity in opposing him on a very personal level – their delaying tactics are owed no deference. We urge CHQ readers to use the Capitol Switchboard toll free line (1-866-220-0044) to contact the Judiciary Committee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to demand Jeff Sessions be confirmed immediately.

The Newspapers Bully Sen. Sessions

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The left tried a similar routine with John Ashcroft when he was nominated to lead the Justice Department 16 years ago. They tried to paint him as a racist for writing for a journal called the Southern Partisan. But eight Democrats crossed party lines to make it an easy confirmation vote. History is bound to repeat itself, but that won't stop these character assassins from trying.

The Real Goal of the Anti-Trump Riots – Eliminate the Electoral College and the Constitution Part Two of Two

To understand the Electoral College one must realize that the Founders considered the states as the dominate power in the nation. The great mistake Electoral College opponents make is to believe the President was supposed to be elected by the people. It was never the plan.

Jeff Sessions: An America's Security First Attorney General

Fortunately for America, and the domestic security of Americans, Donald Trump won, and Jeff Sessions is headed to the Department of Justice as Attorney General.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is Democrats' nightmare

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Republicans, with a narrow majority in the Senate, should be able confirm their colleague, especially since soon-to-be-former Sen. Harry Reid nuked the minority's ability to filibuster executive branch nominations. But before that happens, look for the noise and the anger over the Sessions nomination to increase. There's too much at stake for Democrats to go along.

Jonathan Swan, The Hill

Ted Cruz has been deflecting questions in media interviews, but in private, the Texan has told several confidants that he wants the job. Nominating Cruz to be the nation’s top lawyer could buy Trump more support from social conservatives while removing a potential rival from the Senate.

Support Josh Hawley for Attorney General in Missouri

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

The attorney general is a more and more important position and conservatives need to get good ones elected. In Missouri, Josh Hawley has defended people of faith and believes in the defense of religious liberty. He strongly supports the second amendment and is pro-life. We need people like Josh Hawley to fill attorneys general roles around the country.

GOP Should Not Confirm An Attorney General Worse Than Eric Holder

It is time that Republicans exercised the power of their new majority and stood for SOMETHING, and standing for the Constitution and the principle of the equal and uniform application of the law by defeating the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General would be a good place to start.

GOP Seizes Chance to Put Holder on Trial

Justin Sink and Tim Devaney, The Hill

R's in the Senate are planning to use their first high-profile confirmation hearing to put Eric Holder on trial. GOP lawmakers plan to use Weds.’s examination of Loretta Lynch, the Obama pick to replace Holder as AG, to air long-standing grievances with the Obama admin.

Questions for LLynch’s Confirmation

Andrew P. Napolitano, Washington Times

If Loretta Lynch agrees that the Constitution isn't a neutral instrument as between the people and the gov't because it was written to keep the gov't off our backs, she will be an antidote to Obama’s lawbreaking.

Sessions: Reject Any A.G. Pick That Backs Amnesty

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Benjamin Goad, The Hill

Conservatives are warning Obama against using a lame-duck session of Congress to push through Attorney General Eric Holder's replacement, even as the White House signals its intention to fill the post quickly.

GOP on Holder's Exit: ‘Good Riddance’

Peter Sullivan, The Hill

The announcement of A.G. Eric Holder's resignation set off a fiery reaction from Repub. lawmakers, many of who wished him good riddance on Twitter. In 2012, all but two House R's voted to hold him in contempt for refusing to comply with part of a subpoena for items related to "Fast and Furious."
