Jeff Sessions

Conservatives Split On Alabama’s GOP Senate Runoff

The hotly contested Alabama GOP Senate runoff between our old friend former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Trump-endorsed retired Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville has the candidates producing dueling endorsements, with the NRA, Eagle Forum, ICE agents council and many conservative Senators backing Sessions.

Key GOP Contests MSM Ignored On Super Tuesday

While Democrats battled over who is best to sell their radical agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens, gun confiscation, higher taxes, abortion up to and past the moment of birth and job-killing climate change regulations, the media largely ignored Super Tuesday’s important Republican primaries, including the GOP's Alabama Senate race and key congressional races in Texas and California.

Will Trump Support Jeff Sessions' Bid to Return to the Senate?

Rick Moran, PJ Media

Trump has not expressed a preference for a primary winner, but what will he do for the run-off contest? If it's Sessions vs. Tuberville or Byrne, will Trump's gratitude for Sessions' early support offset his anger at the former attorney general? Trump has shown in the past that he can forgive and forget -- for a while anyway. He forgave Ted Cruz his opposition during the campaign and even made peace with Mitt Romney until the Utah senator voted to allow witnesses at the impeachment trial. Even silence from Trump would speak volumes to Alabama voters who would interpret the president's lack of an endorsement of Sessions as disapproval. Alabama voters will make their own judgment.

DOJ IG Report: What Did Obama Know And When Did He Know It?

We urge CHQ readers and friends of civil liberties of whatever political stripe to call Senator Lindsey Graham, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), tell him that you want him to undertake an investigation to establish who at the Obama White House was involved in Operation Crossfire Hurricane and what Obama knew and when did he know it.

DOJ IG Report: Whitewashing The Intelligence Op Against Trump

What the IG report describes are the middle steps in the circular proof cycle created to justify the surveillance and investigation of the Trump campaign and set-up the Russian collusion narrative. But the report doesn’t examine the predicate steps that brought Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos into contact with Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, so, since the IG failed to do so, we will connect all the dots in the circle.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Our friend Joe diGenova has described former CIA Director John Brennan as “the mastermind of” the “conspiracy to frame Donald Trump.” However, as a “mastermind” Brennan falls far short – he can’t even make-up an original lie to cover his tracks, his story about a high-level source close to Putin follows the “magic source” plotline of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so closely.

Which One Of The Spygate Rats Will Flip First?

Fired FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and several others are already in the crosshairs. Given U.S. attorney John Durham’s reputation for uncovering and prosecuting FBI corruption in the Bolger case, which one of the Spygate rats is going to flip first?

Comey Is Ultimately Screwed

Our friend former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova had a pithy assessment of where Attorney General Bill Barr’s investigation into whether the Obama-inspired spying on President Trump and his campaign were properly predicated: "Comey is ultimately screwed,” said DiGenova.

The Fabrications That Almost Succeeded In Overthrowing President Trump

Andrew McCabe would have us all believe that HE believed the Steele “dirty dossier” and other purported contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians or Russian-affiliated persons, even though he knew almost all those contacts were set-ups orchestrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI and various other organs of the Obama administration.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Spawn Of The Fake Steele Dossier

What research on the Steele dossier has slowly revealed is the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials.

The Crime OF Being Trump

The prosecutorial harassment of Donald Trump, those related to Donald Trump or in Donald Trump’s “circle” is an outrageous perversion of justice. What's more, the opprobrium heaped on the Trump family by the establishment media and popular culture has also claimed entirely innocent victims, such as Josh Trump of Delaware.

Comey Pleads The Hillary Memory Loss Defense

It seems that James Comey and Hillary Clinton are infected with the same memory loss virus that affects so many of the elite university graduates who make up DC’s political class, leading one to conclude it is not memories, but ethics and integrity that they are missing.

Sessions Out, Whitaker In — For Now, and Maybe for Good

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation appears to be at a ripe stage, and if Acting Attorney General Whitaker helps steer it to a prompt conclusion, that is all to the good. Whitaker is being prejudged in some quarters as a Trump “loyalist.” That pejorative label is more a function of what the president has reportedly said that he’d like to have in an attorney general (and in other executive offices serving the president). It is not a function of anything Whitaker has actually done. Let’s see how he performs over the next few months. I’m betting he’ll do a fine job.

What Happens If Rod Rosenstein Is Out At The Department Of Justice?

We agree with the President that there is a “lingering stench” at the Justice Department and FBI, however, it is unclear whether Rod Rosenstein will resign, be fired or stay in his position. The question is, is firing Rosenstein a set-up as Sean Hannity suggests, or something that needs to happen right away, as Judge Jeanne Piro and Laura Ingraham have urged.

Rod Rosenstein, quit!

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

When President Trump talks about making America “great” again, he is talking about returning to the ideals of a United States of America governed by the people. Not a cabal of unelected, power-drunk swamp heathens such as yourself. You also owe it to the American voter. Get out of Washington. Travel this country and you will not meet a single voter who says Donald Trump is perfect. But you will find endless streams of voters who say that Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to this country — and Washington in particular — in more than 30 years.

The Case for Sessions' Resignation Grows

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Jeff Sessions, where are you? What is going on? Do you want the FBI to remain an organization disdained and distrusted by literally half the country? What kind of prescription is that for our national health? Like almost all bureaucracies, the Department of Justice and the FBI seem most concerned with self-preservation. I was one of those hoping that Jeff Sessions was to some extent at least playing possum. Jeff Sessions should be the first to go. It would be good if he set an example and did this voluntarily.

The Willy Horton Moment In The Pennsylvania Senate Race

Our suggestion is that Congressman Barletta take Mayor Kenny and Senator Casey's support for "sanctuary" cities as the “Willy Horton moment” in the campaign and pound Senator Casey and other Democrats for their support of sanctuary cities and the rapes, murders, drugs and other disastrous effects they have on the citizens who must suffer under their misrule.

Democrat Hypocrisy And Fear Mongering On 3D Printed Guns

If the Anarchist Cookbook is for sale on Amazon or available free on the University of California at Berkeley’s website, but Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed can’t publish 3D gun files, then the First Amendment is dead, having been reduced to whatever a federal judge arbitrarily decides you can say or publish.

The Self-Licking Ice Cream Cone

Senator Rand Paul was right, President Trump should revoke the security clearances of former CIA Director John Brennan and anyone else involved in the unmasking of Trump associates, the phony FISA warrant applications and the spying on the Trump team.
