Sessions “Disgracefully” Relegates FISA Investigation to IG

4

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Trump’s is angry with Jeff Sessions’ recent decision to have the Justice Department’s inspector general review a request by prosecutors and the FBI to monitor Trump campaign official Carter Page and his suspected contacts with Russians. He called the decision “disgraceful”.

An Inspector General can’t do anything and it does take forever. It’s another delaying tactic. However, even though Obama appointed the IG Michael Horowitz, he did also work under George Bush and seems like a decent person.

Trump’s tweet refers to Sessions’ recent decision to have the Justice Department’s inspector general review a request by prosecutors and the FBI to monitor Trump campaign official Carter Page and his suspected contacts with Russians.

The FISA abuse case is very serious and Sessions is treating it as if it were a simple paper exercise.

It’s not a real investigation whent he IG does it. It’s more a slow motion gathering of evidence. The IG workds under more restrictions than if agents did it.

Sessions is playing it down.

  1. Maybe Sessions can delay the IG report another 6 months with this stall tactic. It’s obvious that Sessions is deliberately not doing his job. So, he deflected his responsibility to the IG. If the IG report is not out soon, you can be sure it is due to Sessions. By deflecting this to the IG Sessions has again shown that he is not doing any investigations.

    They are many gullible people still clinging to false hope. Some people can be fooled in perpetuity. The latest fable is that Sessions (and in some versions Sessions/Rosenstein) will put on their white hats at just the right moment, just after the IG report is released, and get the bad guys, with 9,000 sealed indictments.

    One aspect of the fable is that Trump & Sessions are secretly working together on this. That is silly. This is serious business, this is not a show, Trump’s numerous criticisms of the DOJ are not pretend.

  2. Sessions doesn’t want his reputation to be tarnished. Go after MS-13. Yeah. Fight the Opium issue. You go girl. Oh wait partisan bickering. Politicization of the DOJ. Going after real corruption in Clinton Foundation, Steele Dossier, email scandal, FISA abuse, yeah IG, you got that one.
