I want to see an investigation into how the Russian crapiola even started. The " insurance policy " that dirty agent Strozk and McCabe authored. THAT is the scandal and would be in a fair media





How it got started was when the Trump campaign met with the Russians and didn't report to the FBI that the Russians contacted them. Mueller was then appoint because Trump fired Comey because "this thing with Russia and Trump."

He did promote somebody through the ranks as a temporary measure. He was Sessions Chief of Staff. Lets be real here. Whoever he appoints the Dems aren't going to like. He removed other cabinet members, he can ask Sessions to go. It's his choice.
Well Jonathan Turley and Dershowitz say he can and I actually heard of them.. 


 




Lets get real, are telling me no one through the ranks are qualified to take the reigns?  




Are you telling me whoever he appoints they wont oppose?




Lindsey Graham. 




I'd take him but I think they will oppose him to. Trey Gowdy butted heads with him and they would oppose him . Christie to. Anybody who is a conservative they will oppose. 





You don't know that. Maybe Christie because of Bridge-gate, but I doubt that they would oppose Gowdy or Graham. It's more likely that Trump wouldn't want Gowdy or Graham. 




as reported...



Walter Shaub, who was director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics for four years before resigning in July 2017, said the friendship between Whitaker and Clovis should disqualify Whitaker from supervising the Mueller investigation.  




“Whitaker has to recuse himself under DOJ’s regulation requiring recusal if you have a personal or political relationship with someone substantially involved in conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution,” Shaub told Reuters.


“If he has a close personal friendship with someone who is involved in the investigation because of his role in the Trump campaign, then that would present a recusal issue”





Yep, that should disqualify him supervising the Mueller investigation.

That would be awesome and Nikki Haley could take his place in the Senate.  Think of what a formidable Presidential candidate that would make her.




Yeah, Lindsey is a real pillar of integrity, ain't he?



"Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is attempting to explain his reversal on a 2017 threat that there would be 'holy hell to pay' if President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions


Although Sessions got the boot this week, Graham vowed instead to work with Trump 'to find a confirmable, worthy successor.'


When confronted with his previous comments on Thursday, Graham chuckled.


'When was that? What year?' he asked..."





Yep, Graham turned out to be a three dollar bill. 


*Note: so there's no mix up and so no one gets offend, lately I'm told that the phrase three dollar bill means someone is gay. I don't mean it that way. Where I'm from a person that gets called a three dollar bill means that person is a phony

Besides no one knows if Mueller might charge Clovis, there are some sealed indictments. I'm going to take the former director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics at his word.


Hey, my brother came through a brought a dozen pork rolls and a few giant size almond cookies to my house today. The late night bakery is long gone. He went to one that opens at 7am. I had 2 for breakfast when everyone was out of the house, I guess I will share the rest.

Before he is ousted, Sessions limits U.S. oversight of local police 

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice has moved to sharply curtail federal authority aimed at curtailing abuse and civil rights violations at local police departments across the country by directing U.S. attorneys to limit the use of consent decrees and settlement agreements. 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in one of his final acts before President Donald Trump ousted him, said the Justice Department could investigate alleged legal violations but that “special caution” was required before resolving any disputes with states or local entities, the department said late Thursday. 

Sessions has long opposed consent decrees between the Justice Department and police departments in cities such as Chicago and Baltimore to institute reforms, which were heavily utilized in the Obama administration, and sought to delay or overturn them. 

Sessions had ordered a sweeping review of the decrees nationwide, alarming civil rights advocates who saw them as ways to address alleged unlawful police stops, excessive force and other violations, especially toward blacks and other minorities. 

Advocates criticized Sessions’ departing order, saying the new procedures will make it more difficult to ensure that law enforcement and other entities such as schools and companies uphold an individual’s constitutional rights.

Max Strzok like McCabe got fired for cause. Just because he is friends with him doesn't mean he should be recuse himself. Muller has interviewed a lot of people.If he interviewed Whitaker or he is a target I could see it. 


 He's not going to be permanent. If he is then he will have to go through the confirmation process. Rosenstein stated he was a superb choice.


 So your sneaking pork buns when everyone leaves.You should be ashamed of yourself.

The rules are clear: Whitaker can’t supervise Mueller’s investigation


I wrote the special counsel regulations. We never would have imagined a situation like this.

A little biased , He doesn't mention Rosenstein has more conficts then Whitaker. Session wasn't fired. He resigned. If he was fired it would be more clear. Whitaker is a temp. Trump should appoint someone as soon as possible and watch the Dems complain no matter who he appoints.
