Yank On The Plug, Then Drain The Swmp

USAG Sessions is dropping hints that Obama's DoJ may be subjected to an investigation.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions suggested Thursday that he would be open to the appointment of an outside counsel to review actions taken by the Justice Department during the Obama administration.

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Sessions in an interview if the new attorney general would consider designating an outside counsel "not connected to politics" to take a second look at Justice Department actions that provoked Republican ire in the last eight years. Those include the Fast and Furious gun scandal and the decisions against bringing criminal charges over Hillary Clinton's email practices or the Internal Revenue Service's treatment of conservative groups.
I'm finding these floaters to be tiresome.
Do it or don't.
Shit or get off the pot.
Sessions was noncommittal but left the door open, saying he would do everything he could to "restore the independence and professionalism of the Department of Justice."

"So we would have to consider whether or not some outside special counsel is needed," Sessions said. "Generally, a good review of that internally is the first step before any such decision is made."
There's been eight years of review, enough already. Still, this may be a negotiating maneuver to shake things loose a bit.

I like the idea that they're not going to let these scandals die...follow them to their source (Barack and friends) and unearth the conspiracies.

I agree. There need to be some prosecutions.

I, too, grow weary of blabbing followed by inaction.

LL - I really believe that Trump is not someone that you mess with. He will go after the Clintons and Obamas. He won't kill them, he will ruin them financially and politically.

Linda - I can see Trump telling Sessions, "Shut. Them. Up."

Always - I counsel myself to be patient. These are very big targets and a lot of prep work is needed before anyone does a perp walk.
