Jeff Sessions

Principled Conservative vs McConnell Establishment Incumbent In Alabama GOP Senate Run-Off

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is the real deal. A Bible-believing Christian and a constitutional originalist who lives the values he campaigns on and will not be intimidated or bought by the Washington establishment.

Good News: Attorney General Sessions Takes On Affirmative Action in College Admissions

David French, National Review

Affirmative action is indispensable to the scourge of identity politics; it cements into law the racist notion that the color of your skin matters more than the content of your character. It creates injustice for the purpose of curing injustice, and it mainly works to polarize an already divided nation. No one should be under any illusion that Sessions alone can end this destructive practice, but if his DOJ can punish the worst and deter the rest, he can at least start a process that is very long overdue.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Trump Should Skip Establishment Appointees

More than 98% agreed that the establishment should be blacklisted by Trump, given their lack of loyalty and the probability that they would become part of the army of anti-Trump leakers in the government.

Trump Admin Pushing in Wrong Direction, Doubles Down on Gov’t-Sanctioned Theft

Daniel Mitchell, CNS News

One can only imagine how Jefferson, Madison, Mason, et al, must be rolling in their graves as they contemplate the disgusting practice of civil asset forfeiture, which basically allows agents of the government in the modern era to steal property from people who have not been convicted of any crime. I’m not joking. Even worse, government agencies are allowed to profit from this form of theft, creating a terrible incentive for abuse.

Mueller and Trump Prepare for War with America the Loser

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

If Trump and his family are singled out for this when the Democrats have skated, this will be regarded by a vast proportion of the public as selective prosecution further exacerbating the situation. To take any of this seriously as a search for truth is absurd. It's more like a blood sport, the modern equivalent of  gladiatorial combat. Trump baiting. And Trump, as the bear, lashes out.

Trump Has Himself, Not Sessions, to Blame for the Limitless Mueller Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

President Donald Trump’s rant against Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in an interview with the New York Times, is a foolish bit of revisionist history. Sessions erred in the rashness and overbreadth of his recusal from the Russia investigation, but the president has himself to blame for the appointment of a special counsel.

Attorney General Sessions’s Recusal Was Unnecessary

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I have argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s recusal from the so-called Russia investigation was a mistake. The attorney general’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday afternoon bolstered this conclusion. The probe of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign is not a criminal investigation or prosecution.

Another Pointless Russia Hearing

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The questioning was so straining, empty, and cheap I expected one of the Democrats to ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Have you ever, while flipping cable channels at home or at the office, stopped on Russia Television? If so, which programs did you watch and why? Could you give the dates on which you watched RT and the duration of the viewing?

Jeff Sessions takes the gloves off

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

In Tuesday’s testimony, Mr. Sessions excoriated — in a voice that appeared quavering with anger at times — those who are knowingly distorting plain and simple events into this vast web of conspiracy. “The suggestion that I participated in any collusion or that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for over 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie,” he said, looking sharply at the senators he worked alongside for the past two decades.

What You Need to Know Before Sessions Testifies at the Senate Intelligence Committee Today

Liz Sheld, PJ Media

As you watch Sessions today, remember that he wanted to appear in an open forum rather than behind closed doors. This is the behavior of a man who wants to clear his name and not the actions of a man who is trying to hide sketchy allegiances. The Democrats and the media are desperate for material, material they can obsess about on the cable stations and the news and material they can misrepresent to the voters to gain an electoral advantage.

AG Sessions Before The Senate Intelligence Committee: It’s A Hearing About Nothing

Today’s hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee featuring former Senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions should be the last time the government of the United States allows itself to be manipulated into responding to the lies and provocations of James Comey.

Sessions To Testify About Comey Before Senate Intelligence Committee

Chuck Ross, Daily Caller

Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia probe in March, had been scheduled to testify before the Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees next week. But in letters to the chairmen of those panels, Sessions says he has instead accepted an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

DOJ Says Comey Wasn’t Honest In Senate Hearing

Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

Comey testified that when he told Sessions that he should prevent any “future direct communication between the President and me,” the attorney general didn’t reply. The DOJ said in a statement, “The Attorney General was not silent; he responded to this comment by saying that the FBI and Department of Justice needed to be careful about following appropriate policies regarding contacts with the White House.”

Judicial Watch: Newly Released Emails Reveal More Clinton Corruption And Security Failures

Our friends at Judicial Watch have released another 2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server. They also show Clinton’s daughter Chelsea and others involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving special favors.

Don't Do It Donald

Choosing Democrat turned Independent Senator Joe Lieberman to head the FBI would empower President Trump’s fiercest enemies in the Republican Party and do nothing to get Democrats off his back.

Conservatives Who Supported Trump Being Systematically Excluded From Trump Administration

Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What I have observed and heard since the inauguration leaves me concerned that many cultural conservatives who put their credibility on the line to give their post-primary support to Donald Trump and gave their time, money and expertise during the general election campaign are now being systematically excluded from the Trump administration.
