Jeff Sessions To Run for His Former
Senate Seat…

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/6/2019 7:46:03 PM

Oh boy, have the wounds healed? According to multiple media reports former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is poised to run for his longtime Senate seat in Alabama. He would be challenging Senator Doug Jones who is considered the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate. Mr. Sessions was generally disappointing during his tenure as AG; driven primarily by his recusal from all issues around the 2016 campaign, including the Mueller investigation. President Trump requested his resignation the day after the mid-terms, and President Trump stated giving Jeff Sessions the AG job was the biggest mistake of his presidency. On the upside, Sessions was a good Senator and dependably strong on immigration and

Comments:

I would vote for him if I lived in Alabama…He was miscast as AG in this administration.

Mark my words. If Sessions gets elected he will not just be a thorn in PDJT’s side. He will be a sword. Worse than Mitt, worse than McCain or Collins.

Sessions was probably my favorite Senator in 2015-2016..... But no, Not now. Time for him to retire and enjoy his grandchildren.... Or something.

Sessions is a GOOD guy! He purposefully recused himself to work behind the scenes! He hired Durham and Horowitz! Go Jeff!

Sessions may have been miscast as AG but what does it say that HE was the one who only had the job due to Trump’s kindness. I suspect PDJT knew he would not really help drain the swamp. Trump knew that these long time swamp critters are going to protect their buddies. I am sad to see this because Sessions failed Trump publicly and terribly. I hope Alabama voters resist the ole recycle system.

How do you catch top bureaucrats engaged in a plot against a leader? After all, overthrowing governments by clandestine means is the CIAs job. Catching people by luring them into various legal traps is the FBI's specialty. How do you catch savvy covert operators? I have wondered for a couple years if Sessions perceived passivity was a trap. If Sessions had started his tenure acting like Barr, would any evidence of the planned coup still exist or would everything have been shredded or bleached? Could he have been feigning helplessness while Horowitz and Huber collected evidence and passed it to Durham? If they obtained warrants and have ongoing surveillance of the various plotters. And if Trump's jabs at Session were intended to sell the ruse. The plotters, feeling safe with good ole do nothing Jeff as AG could continue their work to eliminate that dummy Trump. Now with the impeachment inquiry vote the democrats are all in on anti-Trump chicanery. If this was planned and the investigators have the evidence of a deep state coup attempt, it is now a great time to spring the trap. The opening of the 2020 election campaign. If it were to turn out that the democrats have been lured into the equivalent of a making cavalry charge into a perceived vulnerability in enemy lines only to find themselves trapped in a valley lined with enemy artillery, I doubt Sessions would even need to campaign. It would be really nice if the Republicans would impress me for a change.

This is a puzzle, what is going on here? Why does this aged fellow want back in? I hope the good folk of Alabama will ask him some serious questions. Has another R thrown his hat in the race or is he unopposed? I used to like Sessions, but his strange non performance as A G caused much discussion and angst, and left a bitter taste. US politics are so twisted and deceptive, tainted with communistic ideology and dubious money, it is hard to give one's trust readily any more, though I do trust PDJT.

#9, I have been thinking the same things for a while. Even when the media portrayed Sessions as an idiot and Trump as the Hatemeister, I watched their body language and uncontrolled facial expressions. Interesting. I don’t think we know the full story (and we may never know). But General/Senator Sessions as a McCain or Delecto is dope smokers smoke. (Tommy Tuberville is sending out campaign letters and I could consider him, I’ll do some more investigating into the story behind Sessions potential run. But at the moment, I would vote for him in a heartbeat.)

There is an important granular aspect to the validity of the House impeachment process that few are paying attention to. If the HJC loses this case in the DC Appellate Court, it means there is no constitutional foundation recognized to the “impeachment inquiry.” Without the constitutional recognition of the judicial branch then: (a) Pelosi/Lawfare have to restart the process with a genuine House vote; or (b) the ongoing impeachment process will have no recognized constitutional standing; and (c) the Senate could ignore any House impeachment vote, cast without recognized constitutional standing.

One of the deep state attorneys representing the so-called “whistleblower” behind the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquisition, has been working toward the impeachment of President Trump since the early days of his administration, recently unearthed tweets reveal. Mark Zaid, a prominent national security lawyer in Washington, tweeted in January of 2017 that the “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately,” a Fox News analysis of his tweets revealed. (Snip) That tweet came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to make legal arguments defending Trump’s executive order on immigration and refugees. He authored a number of other impeachment obsessed tweets as well.

Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) told reporters on Thursday that attorneys for the anti-Trump CIA leaker Eric Ciaramella have suddenly done a “reversal” after their initial contact with the committee. Ciaramella’s lawyers sent the Senate Intel Committee a letter stating they were anxious and eager to come in and speak to congressional investigators — and now they are backing out. Burr insisted he would protect the identity of the ‘whistleblower’ even though investigative reporter Paul Sperry published the snitch’s name — Eric Ciaramella. Perhaps this is why the pajama boy is backing out — he can’t take the heat after the conservative media outed him, his liberal bias and orchestrated coup

Eric Ciaramella, the alleged Ukraine whistleblower, was a guest of Vice President Joe Biden at a glitzy lunch in October 2016 to honor the prime minister of Italy. Biden co-hosted the banquet with former Secretary of State John Kerry for then-Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Ciaramella, who is of Italian heritage, was among the U.S. officials who accepted an invitation. This week, the Washington Examiner reported that Ciaramella is now a deputy national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia on the National Intelligence Council, reporting to the director of national intelligence. Ciaramella, a career CIA analyst, was Ukraine director on the National Security Council during the end of the Obama administration and

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said Thursday Republican lawmakers plan to subpoena the so-called “whistleblower” to testify publicly as part of the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, according to The Hill. Jordan’s remarks come as lawmakers on Capitol Hill are battling over whether to identify the so-called “whistleblower,” who RealClearInvestigations suggests is likely to be CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella. Democrats claim the so-called “whistleblower” is no longer a key witness to their impeachment inquiry and must not be named due to the Whistleblower Protection Act. However, some Republicans, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have dismissed those concerns and are mulling revealing the individual’s name.

The law firm representing the so-called whistleblower at the center of the impeachment movement targeting President Donald Trump as well as multiple other anti-Trump whistleblowers was so desperate to find Trump administration informants that they previously offered those who come forward discounted pricing for legal representation. A search of the Twitter account for the law firm’s founder and managing partner, Andrew Bakaj, finds rabid anti-Trump posts such as repeated advocacy for Trump cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution over claimed competency issues. The amendment offers a path for the commander-in-chief’s removal if the “president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen.

Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said the CROWN Act “seeks to advance racial equity” by defining Protected Hairstyles.
