(National Sentinel) Insubordinate: There likely isn’t a day that goes by anymore when POTUS Donald Trump doesn’t get up in the morning wondering how he could have been duped into naming Jeff Sessions his attorney general.
To say that the former Alabama senator has been a disappointment is a gross understatement.
As Trump has battled the Deep State, bureaucrats, a hostile Pravda media, and world leaders as he attempts to bring America back from the dank, dark hole Obama put us in, he’s been stymied on more than one occasion by his own appointees.
AG Jeff Sessions has been one of the worst offenders.
In recent days congressional leaders received assurances from the Justice Department that documents they’ve been demanding — and have every right to see — regarding the “Trump-Russia collusion/Spygate” investigation would be forthcoming.
Now, reports ace investigative journalist Sara A. Carter, the DoJ has reneged on its promise.
Worse, she writes, the next time the department plans to meet over the issue will be when POTUS Trump is tied down during his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
These corrupt Deep State hacks are too clever by half.
The Department of Justice reneged on a commitment to provide access to documents they promised to congressional lawmakers by Thursday morning. Instead, DOJ issued a press release after midnight suggesting they will only meet with a group of select lawmakers to discuss the matter on the same day the North Korea summit opens in Singapore, according to numerous sources and a DOJ statement.
Moreover, the Justice Department also issued new stipulations for briefing congressional members and limited the meeting with only the Gang of Eight, which is comprised of eight leaders within Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters.
These sources claim that briefing Gang of Eight lawmakers restricts the dissemination and discussion of the documents that will be taken for review. Although the DOJ contends that the documents are highly sensitive material, in reality, these documents are not considered to contain high-level national security information.
So while it seems that DOJ is complying, congressional sources say it means that the documents provided may be highly redacted.
A source familiar with the discussions stated that the documents, “…do not rise to Gang of Eight level material requiring such strict rules that would limit those members to discuss the material with other lawmakers.”
So in other words, there is nothing classified in these documents. They are only “sensitive” because the likely contain information that not only exonerates POTUS Trump but implicates other FBI and DoJ officials in acts of malfeasance or even crimes.
Carter notes that in the May 24 meeting between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and FBI Director Christopher Wray — along with other DoJ officials — the congressional members were implored not to tell anyone that Justice had the documents they were seeking.
However, she writes, in the late-night statement, DoJ noted that it had the sought-after documents.
“The Department and FBI will also provide the documents that were available for review but not inspected by the members at the previous briefing along with some additional material,” the department said.
“This request for documents is not at the Gang of Eight level,” a source familiar with the matter told Carter.
“This is yet another line of obfuscation, stonewalling and delay tactics by the DOJ. They were supposed to deliver the documents to Congress Thursday and then at the last second did what they always do: fail to keep their commitment. Now they are waiting until the opening of the North Korea summit in an attempt to bury it from the public.”
Here we have — again — the Sessions Justice Department deciding what it will and will not allow members of Congress (who have constitutional oversight) see documents they are not only cleared to see but entitled to see.
And where the hell is Jeff Sessions? Why do we keep having to ask that question?
For that matter, where is Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein? He’s the one now responsible for all things Russia.
POTUS Trump could end this today. He could pick up the phone and order these documents released and, if necessary, declassified.
And then he could fire these quislings for thwarting a legitimate investigation into the Deep State operation aimed at him.
