Jeff Sessions the Mr. Magoo Buffoon

Politics / US Politics Mar 06, 2018 - 05:15 AM GMT

Politics

Pick your poison for the Trump administration's biggest failure. Russian demonization by the State Department, movement of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem or adopting the threat of an aggressive use of nuclear weapons are all high on the list. All of these topics deal with foreign policy. However, the country ignores or dismisses such concerns because the bombs are not yet hitting our shores.

What does impact every inhabitant is that the rule of law has become an utter joke, especially under the regimes of the last three Attorney Generals. Sadly President Trump got snookered by former Senator Jeff Sessions when he was picked to lead the Department of Justice, better described as UNJUSTICE by anyone who has half a brain left to admit the true condition of the top cops, head attorneys or government pseudo magistrates.


At the outset the authority of the President to manage executive agencies is summed up in clear language by John Lucas, The FBI and DOJ are not independent entities.

"The Constitution does not delegate to the United States the power to create “independent” entities. (See the U.S. Const.)  Indeed, such a power could create entities that would destroy our government.

Because there are no “independent” governmental entities, each such entity is subject to oversight, i.e., it answers to a superior. That includes Intelligence Agencies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and an “Independent” or Special Counsel. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not free to do as he wishes. Here is why.

The Executive Branch, headed by President Donald J. Trump, is in charge of the FBI and DOJ. President Trump is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation. (U.S. Const., art II.) Congress has the obligation of overseeing the Executive Branch. (U.S. Const., art. I.) It is also true that the FBI is subordinate to the DOJ headed up by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Conclusion. President Trump, Attorney General Sessions, and Congress have the Constitutional power to oversee Special Counsel Mueller, fire him and his team, and to investigate the investigators if that is deemed necessary."

Compare this standard with the Guidelines issued under the authority of the Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey issued in 2008 as provided in sections 509,510,533, and 534 of title 28, United States Code, and Executive Order 12333. They apply to domestic investigative activities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other activities as provided herein.

Mukasey was the last competent AG. However, his protocols illustrate the shortcomings when lawyers are left to define the law and how legal agencies are supposed to function. Recognize that his successors Eric H. Holder, Jr. and Loretta E. Lynch were outright crooks doing the bidding of the chief felon, Barack Hussein Obama II of the District of Crime syndicate.  

By contrast, John N. Mitchell was a neophyte. If the G. Gordon Liddy plumbers committed the crime of the last century, what exactly would you call the Fast and the Furious Holder gun runner operation?

For over the last year, Jeff Sessions has been pretending to be the Attorney General. No one can reasonably contend that he is President Trump's Consigliere. Sessions has been AWOL from the beginning of his appointment. Trump's recent description that AG Sessions should be called Mr. Magoo is perfection. A person of extreme near-sightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit the problem.  

Normally observers of the deep state would speculate that Sessions is being blackmailed to keep his distance from any meaningful investigative inquiry, criminal prosecution or draining of the swamp. Despite the seemingly obvious, Sessions may be just so far out of his league that no uncanny streaks of luck will change the situation that always seems to work itself out for him, leaving him no worse than before.

This Mr. Magoo bozo has demeaned his entire life's work. His recusal arguments are nothing but a betrayal of his sworn duty as the Attorney General. Yet he is willing to disparage his office using tortured abandonment of his actual responsibilities. His reply is laughable as reported by the Washington Times, A defiant Sessions vows to ‘continue my duties’ after Trump trashes ‘disgraceful’ FISA probe.

“As long as I am the Attorney General, I will continue to discharge my duties with integrity and honor, and this Department will continue to do its work in a fair and impartial manner according to the law and Constitution.”

President Trump's assessment is dead on.

“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Disagree if you wish, but Dana Rohrabacher: Trump 'has a legitimate right' to feel betrayed by Jeff Sessions, expresses the reaction from a Congressman of courage.

"Rohrabacher said Sessions knew he was “setting in motion the establishment of a special prosecutor” when he announced his recusal from the Russia probe, and said the attorney general didn’t have any “real reason” to step down from the investigation.

The California congressman also accused Sessions of betraying those who were confident in him.

“The American people now are getting a taste of what people in Washington have known over this last year, and that is Jeff Sessions betrays the people who have had faith in him — faith in him to do his job and faith in him not to succumb to pressures from the outside, like from CNN and other news bureaus to try to do their bidding,” Rohrabacher said."

Let's get real; Sessions is acting as if he is the AG under Obama or Clinton. Who could imagine that corrupt Lynch or Holder would ever conduct themselves as has Sessions? Certainly he is not onboard the team Trump train nor does he demonstrate any concern for advancing the President's agenda. Now that the House Intelligence Committee Republicans report is public, Deputy AG Rosenstein under increasing pressure as Trump refuses to say he backs him. The Chicago Tribune cites "Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., said in a statement that he wanted Attorney General Jeff Sessions to seek the criminal prosecution of Rosenstein and several former Justice Department officials whom he described as "traitors to our nation."

Does anyone really believe that Jeff Sessions would lead an effort to indict Rod Rosenstein and the crew over at the FBI, who operate the supreme RICO racket? The much reported restaurant get together hardly looks like a proffer to support a plea bargain. On "America's Newsroom" on Thursday, Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Steve Hayes said Sessions "sent a message" to Trump by dining with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Solicitor General Noel Francisco.

According to Joseph diGenova, Mr. Magoo, AKA Attorney General Jeff Sessions Is ‘Not Up To’ His Job, Former Prosecutor Says. Going further and to the point in the account, TRUMP CALLS JEFF SESSIONS “MR. MAGOO” for a very good reason.

“The president has also been complaining to associates that he generally has hired the best lawyers for himself, but that as president he’s forced to use Sessions, who isn’t defending Trump to the best of his ability, according to the Post.”

Admittedly, this is an article from a liberal source, the Hill, but in this case, I hope it’s true because Trump needs to lose confidence with Jeff Sessions.

Let’s hope Trump’s patience with Mr. Magoo is wearing out. We’ve had over a year of bungling incompetence by the Attorney General during which the Justice Department was hijacked by the Deep State, and a witch hunt against Trump was initiated by Swamp Creatures at a time when the Swamp should have been drained."

It is evident that many solid conservatives are most disappointed with Jeff Sessions. Even if achieving Senator confirmation approval for a new AG would be a difficult task, keeping Sessions as a bubbling figure head as the Attorney General is a profound mistake. Why there was never a complete cleaning of all Obama appointees is beyond belief and legitimate criticism that Trump's confidence in Jeff Sessions has been ill placed.  

Oh, Magoo, you've done it again! "I have a vision problem today can't see myself doing much." Such would be a very good motto for Jeff Sessions.

The continuous attacks that Donald Trump is a despot prove to be vastly out of place. On the contrary the actual totalitarians are the operatives of Deep State establishment. If Sessions was a serious dispenser of legal justice he would be implementing a top to bottom cleansing of the DOJ and an expulsion of the FBI gangsters.

Judicial Watch's Director of Investigations Chris Farrell said FBI Director Christopher Wray should be replaced and that the entire FBI should be restructured as a "new investigative arm of the U.S. Marshals Service." As long as Jeff 'Quincy Magoo' Sessions obstructs, refuses to bring charges before a grand jury and seek indictments, President Trump will be betrayed.
