Sessions Might Be Planning to End Mueller’s “Witch Hunt”


Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be back from wherever he’s been for the last several months. He hired Matthew Whitaker to serve as his chief of staff, taking Jody Hunt’s place as Hunt moves up to assistant attorney general in charge of the department’s Civil Division. What makes Whitaker unique is he thinks Mueller’s investigation could be a “witch hunt”.

He also thinks a strong case could have been made against criminal Hillary Clinton.

The fact that Sessions hired him makes one think he might be planning to do something about the endless fishing expedition by the Special Counsel.

Whitaker, who was a CNN legal commentator, wrote last month that President Trump was “absolutely correct” in his assertion that it was a “violation” for special counsel Mueller to investigate the Trump family’s finances.

Whitaker said, “Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing. If he were to continue to investigate the financial relationships without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.”

He contended that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein should “act to ensure the investigation is within its jurisdiction and within the authority of the original directive. It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel.”

Whitaker’s last position was as executive director of the Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT), a conservative watchdog group focused on Democrat ethical issues.

Also interesting is that in May, he said there was a “strong case” to be made against Hillary Clinton and that she should be “extremely grateful” she wasn’t prosecuted.

It’s very interesting that in a Republican administration, the only ones investigated are Republicans. With all that the Democrats have done, not one has been investigated.


  1. I think I’ll return to my initial suspicion on this investigation. When we look at all who are involved in the investigation we can draw conclusions that it is more political than about justice. What makes the conclusions even more significant is the pursuit of financial information. Taking into account what we have been told I contend Mueller has entered into FusionGPS v2.0. The broad ever expanding scope has the same purpose as the “dossier” with the goal of uncovering some detrimental information to be used in the upcoming election. We can be sure that Trump’s tax return will also be subject to subpoena and used, with distorted context, in the next election. The obsession with his tax returns have been a high priority among many Democrats.

  2. Trump’s tax returns are neatly stacked under Obama’s overwhelming stack of sealed records:
    *His college records
    *His application for foreign student status
    *His original birth certificate
    *His source of funding for college
    *The true origin of his ‘children’
    *His membership in feign student organizations

    Trump’s tax returns will never be uncovered by Mueller and his liberal cronies.

    Screw John Mueller and the horse he rode up on!

    This whole Russia BS probe into Trump has revealed more collusion between Hillary and the Russians than anything else.

    Mueller was charged with investigation Russian meddling in our election…no matter where it led.

    Mueller hasn’t the balls or the ethics to pursue Hillary’s criminality.

  3. It may be that the Mueller team has once again leaked information. Not long ago he asked for emails from Kushner and other White House personnel only to have a Politico story ABOUT Kushner using a private email account for insignificant matters, such as news and events. How else could Politico get access to the actual emails if it weren’t someone as Team Mueller.

    Does Mueller and his team believe that a constant drip-drip release of information, that amounts to nothing, will impact the Administration negatively. It may have impacted a less committed administration but Trump is no pushover and it could very well backfire. It is especially true given the animosity towards Government in general. And if people see the heavy hand of Government against an entire administration it could very well garner a sympathetic response.

  4. Sessions needs to WAKE UP. So much coming to light with FISA, wiretapping and unmasking that it should be like shooting slimy fish in a dirty little barrel.

  5. A real leader would not need to rely on staff to do the right thing which he should have already done. Until I see real action to the contrary, I think that Sessions’ act of recusal was such a dirty trap that indicates he is on the other side. He appears to be in favor of this witch hunt.

  6. The “investigation” should end for two reasons: 1) It’s 100% politically motivated and was designed as a weapon. 2) These detectives extraordinaire haven’t been able to find a SINGLE MOTE of evidence against Trump. EVEN AFTER EXPANDING THE SCOPE OF THE INVESTIGATION MULTIPLE TIMES!

    There’s NOTHING THERE TO FIND. Go investigate some REAL criminals…like Clinton, Rice, Lynch, Comey, Wasserman-Schults, etc. Investigate someone for whom there is actual evidence against.
