In Early Tweetstorm, Trump Lashes Out At Sessions For Ignoring "Hillary Crimes"

Tyler Durden's picture

The feud between Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions started early on Tuesday, when President Trump, in an early tweetstorm lashed out at the attorney general whom he accused of taking a "VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump tweeted.

Trump also asked the A.G. where is the investigation into "Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign... quietly working to boost Clinton."

In a follow up tweet, Trump also slammed the acting director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, whom he implicitly accused of corruption for getting $700,000 from Hillary for his wife (which incidentally is accurate, as the WSJ described last October, in "Clinton Ally Aided Campaign of FBI Official’s Wife")

“Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” he said on Twitter.

Today's animosity between Trump and Sessions was first unveiled in an interview with The New York Times last week, when Trump said he would have never hired his attorney general if he knew he would recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Trump in a tweet Monday morning also asked why the "beleaguered A.G." wasn’t investigating ties between Clinton and Russia.

Overnight, the WaPo reported that Trump has floated possible replacements for Sessions including Sen. Ted Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, although subsequently Giuliani said on Monday, however, that he’s not being considered for the position.

In addition to slamming Sessions, Trump also focused on today's big item, the latest Senate vote on the GOP Healthcare vote, which however remains in chaos as nobody knows what will be voted on just hours ahead of the actual vote. After berating Republicans for failing to repeal and replace Obamacare on Monday, Trump tweeted "Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate! ObamaCare is torturing the American People.The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand."

Today's Trump tweets followed a late night barrage against the WaPo/Amazon/Jeff Bezos (who is now about $2 billion away from becoming the world's richest man), in which Trump said "So many stories about me in the @washingtonpost are Fake News. They are as bad as ratings challenged @CNN. Lobbyist for Amazon and taxes?" and "Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?", prompting many to ask if Trump's much anticipated crackdown against Bezos has officially begun.

President Trump needs to fire Mueller, Rosenstein, McCabe, and then Jeff Sessions too. Also clear out ALL Obama appointed holdovers. Fill those positions with loyal deplorables from flyover country!

AND on the same day give the liberal media a heart attack by releasing all classified documents related to the JFK assassination and Roswell UFO crash that the deep state has been keeping secret.

 

Wouldn't that be one hell of a news day !!!  Go Trump!!

Lol he'll look guilty as sin if he does

 

Also mind you, Sessions had bipartisn support, generally speaking ... nobody else would be able to pass senate approval

If only Trump were the POTUS and could order his AG to investigate.

Trump will be hard pressed to find loyalty. After making the speech he made in Poland you might think some patriots would step forward to assist. Our GOVT is rotten to the core.

Rotten

Trump doesn't want to have a secret meeting with sessons so Fake News can twist it into whatever they want. So he is out in the open with this comatose AG. He knows that most Americans agree with him on this one; Hillary should be in jail or at least indicted.

 

Trump: "The most transparent administration ever!"

Trump didn't want Hilly investigated, I believe that's why Sessions hasn't done so, I think it's the deep state that wants him out. Sessions doesn't operate out on Front street that way he goes about his business without the media up his ass. I also believe Sessions is an old school patriot, one of only a few left. Who knows, maybe Sessions has a team investigating her...

barndoor's picture

After the election, Trump himself stated that Hillary had "been through enough" and that the investigations against her and the Clinton foundation should be discontinued.  

I did not agree with this position, as no one should be above the law, but I'm having an especially hard time understanding Trump's flip-flop on this issue.

I guess he's feeling the pressure and is looking to let some of it off:

He said that he would leave Clinton alone as a gesture to ask them to back off and make the changes he wants to. They have not given him one centimeter and have attacked non stop. Would you flip flop under such a scenario?

barndoor's picture

Conducting criminal investigations out of personal animus is as "deep state" as it gets.  

Either she deserves to be investigated or she doesn't.  It should depend on his personal opinion, and it shouldn't change from day-to-day.  He the fucking president and he should make up his fucking mind and stick to it for once.

Which do you investigate first? The elderly murderer who killed a few people but has since stopped, or the murderer who is killing people right now and also plotting to overthrow the government?

Keep in mind you have limited resources.

barndoor's picture

I don't know.  But I do know that it is for the cops to decide, based on their own criteria, and you don't want politicians involved for policital ends.  That's the worst case senario. 

Charming Anarchist's picture

It is a trick question.
The (statist) trick is thinking that you need to investigate anything at all.

Keep in mind your limited resources are yours.

Whatever else about Sessions it looks really bad for Trump to treat him so poorly in public.

Sessions is a model of decorum at all times -- a very rare commodity in DC and all .gov levels.

And using the sleazy NYT as a loudspeaker made it even worse.

There was no good reason for such rude behavior.

Trump could have made his displeasure known to Sessions in private and worked some replacement plan without dragging us all into a DC Swamp fight.

Now we all know of the turmoil that should have been kept to a small circle and resolved.

At this point it will be difficult or worse to set up policies with the AG and his department and relevant agencies.

I don't like Sessions because of his views on civil forfeiture, private prisons, states' rights over marijuana, his lack of prosecution of Hill'rey, his recusal, so on and so forth, but Trump and his "tweetstorms" are tacky and stupid. For the record I don't like Trump, or any politician for that matter.

rosiescenario's picture

...and through either stupidity or duplicity, Sessions enabled Mueller.

 

Trump was elected because the public is sick and tired of the political BS in D.C.

 

He should right now man up and get rid of Mueller and his appointed lynch mob, put in a new head of the FBI, cleanhouse at the IRS, and appoint a special investigator to look into Uranium 1.

it's funny to me now how utterly 'rotten to the core' ussa politics has become since jfk's assassination.

i say let-em all cannibalize one another!!!

just let them self destruct- one by one, two-by two, three by three, and so on... --- til they've exposed all to their misdeeds and sedition!!?

truman said in 1974' that the CIA he had created started out on the wrong foot when he was outnumbered by the Dulles devil! and later called it publicly 'an american gestapo'--- he refused to retrack this statement!

today the CIA is a combination of the Nazi Gestapo and Russian KGB in a free democracy to boot!

'somethings gotta give...[?]'

I have to disagree. Trump was and still is about advancing the agenda he campaigned on. He was prepared to "leave it alone" in order to do so. In order to not be distracted by it.

The attacks have been unprecedented, the leaks and betrayals unprecedented and if you could not see it, the revealing of the true nature of our GOVT and many, many of the people that "work" in it has been unprecedented on so many fronts. Deep State is an appropriate name for it. It is a powerful, unelected group of "persons" that care nothing about us little people. NOTHING.

The past 9 years is killing people, killing families, destroying our way of life. Who cares?

TheReplacement's picture

"leave it alone" = go along to get along = swamp dweller behavior

Only a retard would think they could undo the system without taking down major players.  Only a tard would think he could make deals with people who really truly do want it all - world domination. 

It isn't a swamp anyway.  It is the jungle.  Does anyone even understand the law of the jungle?  Please explain it to Trump because he sure doesn't seem to even understand which environment he's in.

JRobby's picture

There is more than one faction in the Deep State. The Clinton's are just one aspect of it. It is vast and multi-faceted for lack of a better phrase. Many "families"

Trump is like the bible - you can take any statement he ever made and find another statement that directly contradicts it.  

Today he is calling McCain a "hero" for coming back to vote on healthcare.  But during the election he didn't think that McCain's time as a POW made him a hero.  He preferred people "that didn't get captured".

What a fucking phony.

the fbi has a real credibility problem that i don't see mueller giving much attention to.  it didn't investigate the primary evidence of whatever tampering with the u.s. election was occurring: the emails stolen last summer from the dnc servers, whether by russian hackers, seth rich, guccifer 2,0 or someone else.  it never examined the servers when the dnc "rebuffed" the fbi.  this is squirrelly as hell; how do you rebuff the fbi when it wants to look at something in a high profile national security investigation?  drug dealers world wide want to know.

and, with a reward for information on his murderer outstanding from wikileaks, the current take from the fbi is that seth rich's murder was never investigated.  first is this true (all news so far says yes: https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=fbi+is+not,+did+not...)?  

given how much the fbi seems willing to discuss current investigations (comey and hillary) it doesn't seem like it's gone beyond supporting the d.c. police's robbery without an actual robbery diagnosis.

and if so why not?  this is the best clue they have.  what about guccifer 2.0 looking so much like someone inside the dnc, what about that?

maybe president trump should put some very tough and very honest republican prosecutor like william k black (ran s and l crisis prosecutions and actually put hundreds in jail) in charge of the prosecution with a free hand and a decent budget and see what develops.  or someone black suggests if he doesn't feel like it now.

Sure there are differing crime families, an elite Mafia competing for territory, power and control. Knowingly or not they all serve the same Master, headed towards the same goal; The end of this age.

The point is, that the FBI would not "ask" you or I to hand over a server, they would get a search warrant and come at 3:30AM with a freaking tank and a battering ram...we would probably be shot right after they shot our neighbor across the strret by accident.

Also, the Dems not giving evidence to the FBI shows consciousness of guilt. If the FBI does get that server, it would be mostly wiped, or a lot of people would get cages or worse.

Dode415's picture

I was taken aback by his fakeness with the widow of the seal that was killed during his speech to the joint house - taking the McCain comment to its natutral conclusion he would have said Owens wasn't a hero because he preferred heroes to be people that didn't get killed

StarGate's picture

He is mercurial not phony. There is a difference.
His approach is based on the circumstances of the moment.
You can learn to read him.

He was willing to start fresh with Hillary after the election.
But the Hillary-Obama /Bush-Brennan opposition is now working thru their agent
Mr. 911-WTC / Benghazi-front-man Mueller to disenfranchise the voice of the people.

As to McCain, god bless him, he is paying the price now.
He has only a few days left to make amends, why not encourage him to come clean?

Eric Holder was found in contempt of Congress, was illegally running guns to Mexican drug cartels, and was responsible for much of the Waco Massacre coverup.  Why hasn't he been indicted for any of this?

Trump has been successful by getting his employees to do their jobs.  It appears that some of his early hires are not up to their jobs, and it is no wonder that he is upset.

You've clearly never studied the scriptures.

barndoor's picture

I got the gist of it - the old testament is about stoning people when the break arbitrary rules (i.e. wearing clothing made of mixed fabric) , and the new testament is about loving and forgiving everyone no matter what.

Does that sound about right?

MarsInScorpio's picture

barndoor:

Your ignorance of the Christian Bible is boundless.

The description given of the Christian OT (Jewish Tanakh) demonstrates you have never studied the topic . . . however, that doesn't stop you from making an international ass of yourself on ZH.

For the record, your fabric illustration from the OT proves your ignorance of the mitzvahs. To reinforce this truth, tell us all, does that prohibition apply to Gentiles also? If not, why not? If so, why, and when?

Your NT description is equally bankrupt. There are too many instances for me to reproof your puking on the screen.

So again, I'll just summarize with, "barndoor, E S & D."

barndoor's picture

So you're going to show me up by asking a bunch of questions?  

Actual thinking people include statements and propositions with their questions.  Here are a few for you to consider:

(1) I wear clothing of mixed fabric (wool, cotton, linen, whatever);

(2) this is a trivial matter of absolutely no concern to any thinking person or deity;

(3) any person, deity or written text that were to make a big deal out of wearing mixed fabric is idiotic and must be disregarded.  

Which proposition do you disagree with?

I'm not attempting to ridicule you with what you have written, but unfortunately you do not understand the Christian doctrine. I would like to try to offer an explanation to what you have written, so that you might understand the difference between the laws laid out by God, and the laws laid out by men.

Firstly, you are correct that there are many instances of scriptures in the old testament that outline specific rules and regulations that to us seem utterly ridiculous, and in many ways, they were utterly ridiculous rules and regulations. The pharisees implemented so many laws and rules and regulations, adding layers and layers of bureaucracy to the Jewish system, to the point where leading your donkey to get water on the sabbath was considered a sin.

Now this is where it is exteremely important that you listen, so you can understand the divergence point between the Jewish traditions and what Christ says. In Mark 7, Christ confronts the Pharisees over the point of ceremonial washing before a meal. This is the scripture:

 

So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders  instead of eating their food with defiled hands?”

He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:

“‘These people honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
They worship me in vain;
    their teachings are merely human rules.’[b]

You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”

And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe[c] your own traditions! 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’[d] and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[e] 11 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)— 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”

Christ is pointing out that the Pharisees have created these laws and rules and traditions, and yet neglected the true laws, which were the 10 commandments handed down by God. The 10 commandments were divine, the rules, laws and regulations that came afterwards were not always from God.

Additionally, God did not issue the punishments for breaking the commandments. These once again were decided by men, so when people say that God condones stoning people to death, they are in fact mistaken. Christians identify Jesus as being "the way, the truth and the life." We follow his teachings, not teachings taught by men, and his teaching in the instance of stoning people to death was to say "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Christ's way was forgiveness, compassion and love. It does not ignore the commandments set forth by God, but it calls out the hypocrisy of those who nullify the word of God to serve themselves.

I hope this has helped you to understand the Christian position regarding these matters. Happy to explain this further if you have any other questions.

There's no penalty associated with mixing fabrics. A law cannot be said to be arbitrary if God Almighty is its Author.

barndoor's picture

If god authored the old testament, then his stated position is against the wearing of mixed fabrics.  Do I have that correct?

Do you wear mixed fabrics?  If so, why do you ignore his will? Why do you suppose this is important to him?

To me, this sounds more like bronze-age sheep headers, an not the wisdom of an all-powerful being.
