President Donald Trump just hammered our do-nothing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with one brutal word after he recently announced that his already overburdened Inspector General will investigate former President Barack Obama’s FISA abuse.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Department of Justice have known about the FISA abuse conducted by former President Barack Obama and his administration for a long time. It’s embarrassing for our country to see Sessions drag his feet for several months, then make a heartless announcement that his Inspector General Michael Horowitz will look into the FISA abuse scandal.
President Donald Trump was infuriated with Jeff Sessions’ announcement and went straight to Twitter to hammer our do-nothing Attorney General for his incompetence and unwillingness to do his job the right way.
“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse,” Trump tweeted, adding it “Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!”

“Disgraceful” is the perfect word to use when describing Sessions’ performance since the day he was sworn in. It is entirely disgraceful that Sessions knew he was going to recuse himself from the Russia investigation and let Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein continue Barack Obama’s illegal political war against Trump. Sessions knew he was giving the power of his office over to a deep state operative and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would do everything in his power to diminish Trump’s administration.
I could add “sickening” and “treasonous” to the list of words which would adequately describe Sessions’ conduct as our Attorney General. According to Daily Caller, Judge Andrew Napolitano recently appeared on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Co to join Trump in bashing Sessions for his complete and utter failure to do his job.
In a furious rant, Napolitano told Fox Business News anchor Stuart Varney, “That’s going to take forever,” referring to the Inspector General investigating the FISA abuse carried out by the Obama administration. “The Inspector General cannot indict, the Inspector General only reports whether or not internal justice department…regulations have been violated,” he added.
“Give it to a team of FBI agents and let them investigate whether or not the law was violated!” he then exclaimed. “That’s what the president is commenting on.” When Varney asked Napolitano if he was dissatisfied with the Attorney General, Napolitano replied, “Do we still have an Attorney General?” adding, “I feel badly about this personally…because he’s my friend, but he seems to be not there…all he seems to be doing is making speeches, not running the DOJ. I think the president shares that frustration.”
The President isn’t the only person who feels negatively about Jeff Sessions. Millions of American patriots, who thought he would do an outstanding job as Attorney General, were shocked to see him recuse himself after he was sworn in and literally stand aside. Jeff Sessions is like having a “diet” Attorney General or an Attorney General “lite.”
Judge Napolitano was right when he asserted that Sessions seems only to be interested in making empty speeches while Rod Rosenstein wields the real power at the Department of Justice. In all honesty, it’s infuriating to see Sessions act as an insulator between the deep state and justice.
The bottom line is that Sessions has used his position to protect the interests of Barack Obama and corrupt individuals within the government while he should have been using his position to serve the American people and help our President drain the swamp.
It’s time for Sessions to step down and get out of the way before he becomes an accomplice to criminal wrongdoing. His recusal doesn’t get him off the hook for protecting those who have committed prosecutable crimes against our country, and if he continues to cover for them, he should suffer their fate.
