The FBI and the DOJ have been stonewalling the House Intelligence Committee for months, refusing to turn over documents that they have requested with regard to the Obama administration’s spying and investigation into the Trump campaign.
In a tweet this weekend, President Donald Trump called out the spying and urged the DOJ to turn over the documents to the House Committee, which has oversight over the FBI and the DOJ.
Judge Jeanine Pirro was infuriated about what has been going on and focused a lot of her fury for the failure to now address these problems squarely on the shoulders of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
From Biz Pac Review:
Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro called Attorney General Jeff Sessions the “most dangerous man in America” because he refuses to stamp out the corruption festering at the highest levels of the DOJ and the FBI. The upper levels of the DOJ, FBI, and CIA employ numerous Trump-hating Obama holdovers.
“The single most dangerous person to the agenda of President Trump, the Republican Party, and ultimately all Americans, is the Attorney General of the United States himself, Jeff Sessions,” Pirro said. “The man has done nothing to make anyone responsible for the blatant corruption, the unmistakable perjury, the in-your-face obstruction of our laws that we’ve seen play out every day,”
Pirro added: “He has fought the release of telling documents that would put an end to this horrible period in America’s political history — documents that would make clear the criminals in this attempt to overthrow an American president. He has even argued that he doesn’t want to release records of Hillary because she’s now a private citizen.”
Sessions was the earliest Senate supporter of Trump and risked a lot in coming out so early. Yet he has frequently frustrated Trump. And his failure to do anything to rectify this situation is mystifying.
Meanwhile, as FBI/DOJ denied the House Intel Committee the documents they were entitled to claiming that they didn’t want to put the source in danger, officials with the Obama FBI seem to have leaked the information about the illegal surveillance to the New York Times and the Washington Post to be able to spin it in a more positive way for the Obama administration.
“This man [Jeff Sessions] has done nothing to create confidence that wrongdoers will be accountable,” Judge Pirro said. “He has done nothing to create confidence on the part of the American people of our system of justice. And with all the power and might of the Department of Justice behind him, he continues to do nothing.”
Sessions recusal from the Russia investigation was what started the whole Special Counsel Robert Mueller probe which has ballooned into a $10 million fiasco, yet finding absolutely no evidence of any collusion on the part of the Trump campaign.
Biz Pac Review makes the interesting observation Corey Lewandowski accused the Obama administration of spying on Sessions as a senator.
And the CIA under John Brennan was caught and admitted to spying on the Senate in 2014. Even Senator Mark Udall, a Democrat from Colorado, called for Brennan to go.
From The Guardian:
“The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate intelligence committee computers. This grave misconduct is not only illegal, but it violates the US Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.
But neither they or Brennan actually suffered any consequences.
So where are the consequences for all this? It’s long past time that Sessions needs to step up.
