    He has definitely shown he is deep state. I guess they told him to write that letter saying to fire Comey to assure they got him over this stuff since they knew Sessions would be naive and recuse himself.

    Trump appointing a new AG would be nice.

      Yeah what is it with gentleman Jeff? He’s been a big disappointment. He’s a non-entity. I guess Trump is afraid to fire Sessions because of the perceived political firestorm and Mueller could then move to charge Trump with obstruction of justice. Another option would be for Sessions to just resign. I wish Ted Cruz was AG.

        When the Russian investigation ends, Sessions will be fired/resign. Cruz missed his chance after Trump sewed up the nomination. I think Giulani would clean up DoJ and FBI.

        http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...-chilling-clash-over-records-emails-show.html

        Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein threatened to “subpoena” emails, phone records and other documents from lawmakers and staff on a Republican-led House committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, according to emails reviewed by Fox News documenting the encounter and reflecting what aides described as a "personal attack."

        The emails memorialized a January 2018 closed-door meeting involving senior FBI and Justice Department officials as well as members of the House Intelligence Committee. The account claimed Rosenstein threatened to turn the tables on the committee's inquiries regarding the Russia probe.

        “The DAG [Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein] criticized the Committee for sending our requests in writing and was further critical of the Committee’s request to have DOJ/FBI do the same when responding,” the committee's then-senior counsel for counterterrorism Kash Patel wrote to the House Office of General Counsel. “Going so far as to say that if the Committee likes being litigators, then ‘we [DOJ] too [are] litigators, and we will subpoena your records and your emails,’ referring to HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] and Congress overall.”

        A second House committee staffer at the meeting backed up Patel’s account, writing: “Let me just add that watching the Deputy Attorney General launch a sustained personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight was astonishing and disheartening. ... Also, having the nation’s #1 (for these matters) law enforcement officer threaten to 'subpoena your calls and emails' was downright chilling.”






        -----------------------------

        Sounds like Rosenstein may need to be put in cuffs also using these Obama DOJ era tactics to hide crimes committed by the DOJ by withholding things from Congress.

          I would like them to impeach him if they actually have evidence that he threatened to use the Justice department in this way. I expect him to be fired when or if Mueller ever gets his job done.

            How is Rosenstein any different from Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch or even Eric Holder.

            What do the deep state folks have on Jeff Sessions -- they have emasculated him it seems.

              Gentleman Jeff has screwed this whole thing up. Sessions fired Rosenstein and both need to go. If the Republicans keep the house and the Senate the day after the midterms Trump should fire both of them and Mueller toof.

                Rod Rosenstein has been such a disappointment and I blame Jeff sessions for the whole thing since it was sessions who hired this sleazebag. He is no different than those people you named but his damage is far worse because he was supposed to uphold the law we know what Sally Yates and Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder were about. I'm not surprised they were 100% agenda-driven but I was hoping for better from Rosenstein.

                My hope Is that after the midterms president Trump fires Rod Rosenstein Jeff Sessions and especially Robert Mueller. The damage sessions has caused by recusing himself one day after becoming Attorney General has been immense. If sessions the top Lowe man in the country did not recuse himself to the shock of everyone then Trump would be much higher in the polls his Rasmussen approval rating instead of being 49 would be mid 50s to low 60s. Sessions recusing himself has cost president Trump a lot. It's all so ridiculous that Trump did not find out ahead of time that Sessions was going to recuse himself. smh. And to make things worse Sessions leaving the Alabama Senate to become the Attorney General opened the door to lose that important senate seat.

                      The Republicans got outmaneuvered. Allowing the AG's office to appoint a special council whose background is the very agency who had clearly come under scrutiny for their handling of the investigation of both Clinton and the alleged collusion. A better choice would have been a state level prosecutor with no Washington connection who had experience in RICO cases. As it is, we'll probably never get to the actual truth of anything because it is clear to anyone in the middle that FBI is a compromised political tool.

                            Congress is NOT going to blow this up. They have their hands stuck in the cookie jar and crumbs all over their shirts.

                              Maybe not such a bad thing as there are still plenty of Never Trumpers there....perfect time to flush ALL of the turds with the mid terms coming up. The Dems talked about a Blue Wave but I'm seeing plenty of political ads where the candidates are promoting their pro Trump agenda.
