Special counsel investigating the FBI

The headline and accompanying story in the Hill made it appear as if Attorney General Jeff Sessions is defying the Senate: "Sessions declines to appoint second special counsel."

The story said, "Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed in a letter to lawmakers Thursday that he had declined to name a second special counsel to investigate allegations of surveillance abuse within the Department of Justice, despite pressure from the Republican Party for him to do so."

I read the letter. Sessions, a veteran prosecutor, said a special prosecutor isn't necessary. Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his staff of 470 people are handling the investigation in the corruption of the FBI by Barack Obama and company.

Sessions named U.S. Attorney John Huber -- an Obama appointee -- of Utah to handle any prosecutions that may arise from Horowitz's investigation.

The letter is here, by the way.

Sessions is an experienced prosecutor who knows how investigations work. He also is a Trump loyalist, and former colleague of Senator Chuck Grassley, who was among the three congressmen he sent the letter to.

There is no rift between Congress and Sessions.

But the media wants to create one to divert attention from the fact that Obama was Nixon on steroids when it came to abusing his power.

  1. Nothing will become of this, Big D. Sorry for being such a Negative Nelly, but the Deep State will protect its own, and as soon as I saw "Obama appointee" behind Huber's name I knew the gig was up. Sure, we can put a scare into em, but no one's going to jail. Not. Gonna. Happen.

    2. Huber was nominated by Bush before he was nominated by Obama and then President Trump. His grand juries will be in Utah, not Washington DC. Since Obama nominated him the Dems will have a hard time discrediting him when the Shiff hits the fan. This was a well thought out and brilliant tactical move.

    3. I read that Huber was picked by obama due to the shortage of Commies in UT.
      Was the best he could do in that geo. We'll see ....

    4. Add that every Dem found guilty and jailed, from Hillary on down, will most likely be pardoned by the next Dem President.

      Obama broke the ground with Bradley Manning, so with MSM support a new Dem prez can now do it more easily. Then blame witch-hunting GOPers no matter how crooked the perp was.

  2. I don't think you want anyone in DC investigating the Swamp. That Sessions picked an outside DC prosecutor indicates this.

  3. Special prosecutors are limited in what they can investigate by the political crew who appoints them and the DOJ official who supervises them. This is much less the case for sitting US attorneys who can follow wherever the crime trail leads.
    The screaming is about not getting another DC/NYC political hack and aparachnik running a investigative scam.

    1. Mueller is limited? Sure doesn't seem so.

    2. All SC are limited. Rosenstein didn't limit that crook Mueller enough.

  4. The IG was also appointed by Sotero. He seems to be doing a good job. It all of Bathhouse Barry’s appointments are as corrupt as he is.

    And Jeff Sessions and his circle do not leak.

    1. The IG and Mr. Huber are playing their cards close to the chest because, as you said, no leaks. Imagine what would happen if they briefed Congress before any indictments come out. Schiff would be running around shouting details of the investigation like Chicken Little. So far, I am cautiously optimistic, and patience is a virtue. - Elric

  5. Sessions appointed Huber months ago and he and his team of prosecutors have been working with Inspector General Horowitz. They have testimony from Bruce Orh, and Strozk among others who are apparently cooperating to get the higher ups in this treason.
    As for concern about Huber being an Obama appointment. He resigned along with 90+ AGs and was reappointed by Trump so he's now Trump appointed Republican. Relax... This has been in place for months with not One leak either unlike the Mueller sham going on

    1. Huber was also nominated by Bush. Neither Huber or Sessions are political when it comes to the rule of law.

  6. The key point to be made is that it will be a non-DC investigation.

  7. "It's a trap!"

    The appointment of a second special counsel would sidetrack the work that the IG and Huber have already done. It would take months before a special counsel could assemble a team and get running. When something looks too good to be true, it likely is. On paper a SC appears enticing to those who mistrust everything in DC, but it's really a way to strangle the effort Sessions has already started. I just wish the IG would give people a better idea of when he might be releasing his report. I fear it will be much later rather than sooner.

    1. The report has been delayed several times because, in my opinion, they have uncovered other trails they had to follow before the report could be published. I;m hoping it comes out as something of an October surprise for the Dims so they can have the benefit of their criminality being displayed to the country.

  8. If, as some have said, Huber is an honest prosecutor, Hillary's ass is grass and he is a lawnmower. I'll be shocked, though, if it happens.

  9. Obama wasn't Nixon on steroids, Don. He was Nixon on estrogen.
