Hillary Clinton is Now a Private Citizen; Yet Sessions Wants to Investigate Her
Jeff Sessions is set to testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee today and the unreconstructed segregationist has a lot of xplaining to do:
I sit on the House Judiciary Committee and Lyin' Jeff Sessions has the opportunity to either apologize for his prior false statements, or lie under oath again. What do you think he will do? https://t.co/48I7yFYqJz

All precedent suggests he’ll lie under oath. When he testified in front of the Senate in October, Senator Al Franken pointed out that Sessions kept moving the goalposts in his categorically stated non denials.
Now that we know that we know about Papadopoulos we can even hit what looked like a 75 yard FG against Sessions: he is aware of members of the Trump campaign engaged in collusion with the Russians.
Yet with all this going on Sessions has the chutzpah to talk about investigating the Hillary and the fake Uranium One scandal:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post.”
“The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September called for Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate concerns he had related to the 2016 election and its aftermath.”
“The list of matters he wanted probed was wide ranging but included the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, various dealings of the Clinton Foundation and several matters connected to the purchase of the Canadian mining company Uranium One by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. Goodlatte took particular aim at former FBI director James B. Comey, asking for the second special counsel to evaluate the leaks he directed about his conversations with President Trump, among other things.”
This opens up a major can of worms on many levels. But for starters:
1. Sessions himself had said he’s recused from anything regarding Hillary Clinton.
2. Hillary is now a private citizen-though she should be President but Russia with an assist from Comey stole it from her.
The idea of opening up a Special Counsel on a private citizen is beyond the pale in any state other than a Banana Republic.
Democrats are starting to call for Sessions to resign, unlike in the past when they feared this might give Trump an opening to fire Mueller. With his talk of abusing his power on this level, it’s not a moment too soon.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
