Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided not to appoint a 2nd Special Counsel to review prosecutorial and investigative determinations made by the Department of Justice under the Obama Administration.

Apr 2

In a letter directed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Sessions revealed no special prosecutor would be appointed at this time, but that he has asked Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber to lead an evaluation into issues, such as "conflicts of interest" and decisions "made and not made" by current and former Justice Department officials in 2016 and 2017.

This includes potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses by the DOJ under President Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch, which are already currently being investigated by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz for the appearance of political bias and prosecutorial maleficence.

Sessions' decision to not appoint a special counsel to investigate these matters, or other events like Hillary Clinton's classified email server, the Uranium One scandal, and the tarmac meeting between Lynch and former president Bill Clinton days before Secretary Clinton's FBI interview, have left many puzzled.

But this wasn't always how the former Alabama Senator felt appointing a special counsel. Almost two years ago on election night, Sessions said a special prosecutor should be appointed to look into Hillary Clinton, her campaign and then FBI director, James Comey's role in investigating these matters.

TruNews recorded then-Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions at the Donald Trump Campaign Headquarters in New York City on the evening of November 8th, 2016. During that interview he said:

"Well I think we have to, really I think a special prosecutor should be appointed, and if they’d done that last March when all this stuff started breaking, the American people would feel a lot better about it today. Because what you had is, Attorney General Lynch, who apparently has not cooperated well with the FBI investigation, and in many ways tried to slow it down, it appears, she served with the pleasure of the President of the United States. She’s, he can remove her, he’s totally for Hillary Clinton, and she’s totally for Hillary Clinton, it’s pretty obvious, so that’s why a special prosecutor would have been appropriate."

10 days after making those comments, Jeff Sessions was nominated by President-elect Donald Trump to lead the Department of Justice.

Days before his comments, AG Sessions' signature was included in an Op-Ed calling for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the Obama administration over their refusal to conduct a proper inquiry of former Secretary Clinton's unsecured email server and the Pay for Play accusations based on millions of dollars paid to the Clinton Foundation by entities having issues before the State Department, all while she was Secretary.

All along, Sessions has shown his true colors in his inaction.  Who is he?  What is the matter with him?  Evidently he is another globalist liar who says things to get into power position and then does the opposite.  Maybe he has alzheimer's.  Whatever he is about, he is being watched by the American People and should not play such a fool.

Since he does nothing when it comes to criminals, maybe he should concentrate his efforts on the environment -- like the chemtrailing, poisoning of our water, estrogen-mimickers and tracer chips in our food.  The list goes on.  As long as he is being paid by my taxes, can I at least get "something" for my money?
