Default Trump responds to Sessions speaking out: "Come on Jeff"

Quote:
President Trump publicly pressured Attorney General Jeff Sessions to "look into all of the corruption" of his adversaries Friday morning, after Sessions issued a rare statement Thursday saying the Justice Department will "not be improperly influenced by political considerations." Sessions' statement Thursday appeared to be a direct response to Mr. Trump's claim on Fox & Friends Thursday that Sessions "never took control" of the DOJ.

Mr. Trump has long pressured his attorney general ó in a very public way on Twitter ó to investigate Hillary Clinton and current and former top Justice Department officials he dislikes. But those urgings have intensified in recent days, as many in the president's former circle face charges. On Tuesday, former longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance law and claimed the president directed him to take the actions to do so. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty on eight counts related to bank fraud.

Quote:
"'Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations,'" Mr. Trump tweeted Friday morning, quoting a part of Sessions' statement Thursday. "Jeff, this is GREAT, what everyone wants, so look into all of the corruption on the "other side" including deleted Emails, Comey lies & leaks, Mueller conflicts, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr......"
Quote:
"....FISA abuse, Christopher Steele & his phony and corrupt Dossier, the Clinton Foundation, illegal surveillance of Trump Campaign, Russian collusion by Dems - and so much more," the president said in a follow-up tweet. "Open up the papers & documents without redaction? Come on Jeff, you can do it, the country is waiting!"

Quote:
The president also lamented that Hillary Clinton is free, while NSA leaker Reality Winner was sentenced to more than five years in prison on Thursday.

Quote:
"'Ex-NSA contractor to spend 63 months in jail over 'classified" information,'" the president tweeted, although it's unclear exactly what he was quoting. 'Gee, this is "small potatoes' compared to what Hillary Clinton did! So unfair Jeff, Double Standard."
What do you make of all this?

When a cabinet member or high-post official doesn't have the confidence of the president, that member should go...Plain and simple...

Sessions: "Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations"

Trump: Go after my political enemies.

Because thatís why the United States has a Department of Justice and Attorney General. To act as a mob enforcer for the presidentís sad grudges.

Sessions not acting as Trump's personal fixer is the opposite of playing politics.

The day after Sessions confirmation he recused himself from the most important investigation in the DOJ. Since then he's allowed Rosenstein to let Mueller's witchhunt to devolve into a campaign of partisan political sabotage. He has failed to press the DOJ to release documents rightfully subpoenaed by Congress. Sessions simply lets his subordinates walk all over him.

You mean like when Eric Holder pledged to be Obama's wingman? Or, when he committed perjury certifying an FNC reporter as a flight risk so the DOJ could secretly spy on what Obama considered an enemy? Oh wait, maybe it was the multiple criminal referrals from Congress he ignored. Or, maybe the contemp citation from Congress he ignored.

Maybe you meant Loretta Lynch's clandestine meeting with Bill Clinton to assure him the fix was in. Or pressing the FBI to conform with Hillary's campaign rhetoric.

From what I've seen so far, Sessions is just--there.
