Rep. Jordan: It’s Time for AG Sessions to Do His Job

By Rep Jim Jordan and Rep Matt Gaetz, at Fox News, 11-13-17:

Mr. Attorney General, it’s time to do your job.

 Why in 2016 did FBI Director James Comey call the Clinton Investigation a “matter,” not an investigation? After all, Mr. Comey wasn’t Director of the Federal Bureau of Matters.

Why in 2016 did FBI Director Comey begin drafting an exoneration letter for Secretary Clinton, whom he called “grossly negligent” in an early draft of the letter, before completing the investigation?  Before interviewing several witnesses? And before interviewing Secretary Clinton?

 Why in 2016 did James Comey and the Justice Department give Cheryl Mills, Secretary Clinton’s Chief of Staff, an immunity agreement for turning over her laptop computer? Typically, the Department would issue a subpoena or get a warrant and seize it. Why in this case did the FBI agree to destroy the laptop?

Why in 2016—one day before the Benghazi report was released and five days before Secretary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI—did Attorney General Lynch meet with former President Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix?

Loretta Lynch + BillClintonWhy in the days following the meeting, and when emailing with the public relations staff at the Justice Department, did Loretta Lynch use the pseudonym “Elizabeth Carlisle?” If your conversation with the former President was only about golf and grandchildren, then why not use your real name?

Why was the decision on whether to charge Secretary Clinton made by FBI Director Comey and not the Attorney General? Why did James Comey publicize the Clinton Investigation?

Why did the intelligence community in the final months of the Obama Administration unmask names at a record rate?

Why, after Mr. Comey was fired on May 9, 2017, was it so critical for a Special Counsel be named to examine possible Trump/Russia collusion? So critical that James Comey leaked a government document about his conversations with President Trump through a friend to the New York Times.

Why is the Special Counsel Robert Mueller? According to The Hill and Circa News, in 2009 and 2010, the FBI through an informant learned Russian companies seeking to do business in the United States were involved in kickbacks and bribes. Yet, FBI Director Robert Mueller did not inform Congress and did not inform the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), the entity responsible for the decision on whether to approve the Uranium One deal.

Why did Robert Mueller not inform CFIUS? And why did the Justice Department put a gag order on the informant?

On July 27, 2017, twenty House Republican members of the Judiciary Committee sent a letter to the Attorney General calling for a Special Counsel to get answers to the above questions.

On September 28, 2017, five House Republican members of the Judiciary committee met with the Attorney General and Justice Department staff to inquire about the July letter.

The Justice Department’s response? Silence.

It’s time for Jeff Sessions to name a Special Counsel and get answers for the American people. If not, he should step down.


Many Americans are asking the same questions, but here’s one they didn’t ask – why isn’t the Trump administration pushing Sessions to get some answers?

Perhaps Trump is concerned that it will look like a personal vendetta if he pursues answers, and for some, there’s no doubt they’ll see it as just that. Liberals always make it fit their own narrative, but he shouldn’t let that stop him from pushing for justice, because they’re going to do that regardless of what he does.

Sessions has done everything from giving speeches on opioids and free speech to ‘cracking down on illegal immigration’ but there have been no headlines about any investigations conducted by him.

  1. “Why” is a good question, Kathy.

    I saw part of Jim Jordan’s questioning of Sessions today and Session’s response was a real head scratcher.

    Trump should have asked Ted Cruz to be AG. He’d get the job done.


    • Most all of his answers seem to be head scratchers, CW. I saw Trey Gowdy ask him a couple of questions and his answer was more like reciting the department’s mission statement than an account of their intentions.

      Gowdy was content with Sessions’ decision not to pursue Comey, and I got the impression he’s not going after Hillary, Lynch or anyone else. So much for blind justice.
