The American left might be unable to investigate obvious and openly committed crimes, produce jobs, improve the economy or know which bathroom to go to with the highly limited options of "men" or "women," but they can keep a secret for decades. And, we thought Harvey Weinstein was the news of the day.
It now appears that the reason the Fast and Furious scandal and Hillary Clinton's emails couldn't be competently investigated is all of the leadership in the FBI and the Justice Department were involved in tracking the bribes, payoffs, pay for play, coercion, money-laundering and extortion associated with Russian purchase of uranium and apparently covering up the facts of the investigation to allow the uranium deal to go through.
While Jeff Sessions seems to be an affable sort of guy, that's really not what is needed here and now. This is the sort of thing that proves a government to be a banana republic; this is the sort of thing that leads to revolution. The person who will decide that is Jeff Sessions. While we all knew what was going on in the Holder/Lynch DOJ, there was no smoking gun and without that you don't take down anyone of real political power. But, because they thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and everything would be kept safely under the rug and any whistleblowers would be dealt with in the Arkansas fashion, there are smoking guns laying all around Washington D.C. with engraved initials.
From what I heard, Mueller (the head of the FBI during the Fast and Furious scandal), Eric Holder (the Attorney General during the Fast and Furious scandal) Rubenstein and Comey all had specific knowledge of the aforementioned bribes, payoffs, play for play, coercion, money-laundering and extortion taking place during the Russian acquisition of 20% of America's uranium. This is only curious, because these are the same characters involved in the investigation of the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.
The troubling part of this becoming known is when Attorney General Jeff Sessions was asked if Rubenstein the Deputy Attorney General should be allowed to investigate his own role in the Russian/Clinton collusion investigation into these allegations of criminal activity, Sessions replied: "It would be his [Rubenstein's] decision. He is a man of integrity and ability..."
Are you kidding me? An ethical person would have "leaked" this sort of information to the media BEFORE the election and would not have appointed Mueller to investigate the bogus allegations against Trump/Russia collusion to sway the election, a man who covered up the facts of the investigation and withheld them from the Senate Judiciary Committee for seven years.
These are not the actions of a man of integrity and Jeff Sessions seems much too mild-mannered to hold the post that he holds at the time that he holds it. This period in time where crimes committed by members of the Obama Administration are blatant, wanton, deliberate and persistent calls for a man who will be aggressive and tireless in his pursuit of the truth and ultimate convictions. Nothing else will salvage the Justice Department or perhaps even the nation. Anything less than an aggressive prosecution of crimes will restore the needed sense of credibility to the Justice Department and without that credibility the whole government apparatus will be exposed as corrupt and unworthy of power.
It doesn't matter that all of those on the parapets, who have been watching this clown show for the past eight years know all of this and more, the bluff is being put up and it is Sessions' responsibility to call the bluff. Now that it is out front and involving everyone, it seems, involved in current investigations into the sitting president, this is already a ridiculous and ironical farce of justice. Everyone investigating Trump should be in jail for treason.
Governments and indeed nations don't long survive this level of corruption without a painful and wire-brush-level cleansing. I don't know how long it takes for the faithful to look eastward toward Washington and dedicate themselves to their duty to alter or abolish, but I do know that it begins with this investigation and if it turns out that this is not a Harvey Weinstein take down, we can all watch as the rats devour the remnants of the republic.
