    "'Gun for hire': how Jeff Sessions used his prosecuting power to target Democrats:
    As the justice department’s man in Alabama, Trump’s attorney general
    indicted political opponents in remarkably thin cases, court filings show."

    "Opponents concluded that Sessions used his federal prosecutor’s
    office, and the FBI agents who worked for him, as political weapons,
    according to more than half a dozen veterans of Mobile’s 1980s legal
    and political circles. Some alleged in court filings that the ambitious
    young Republican actually worked from a “hitlist” of Democratic targets."

    "Is investigating Jeff Sessions a witch hunt? No, it's a quest for the truth."

    "The question was never whether he should recuse himself. The answer to that was
    always obvious. The question now is whether he perjured himself.

    As a top campaign official, Jeff Sessions was never a credible choice to lead the
    investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He
    completely disqualified himself when he failed to disclose two meetings with Russian
    Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during his confirmation hearing.

    Was he was being dishonestly unforthcoming, or plain lying?
    Either way, he was, at the very least, being supremely hypocritical."

    I hope Jeff Sessions goes nuts and throws about 20% of Washington DC in jail.

    Edit: Well, it's more of a wish than a hope.

    Edit2: ... more of a dark secret fantasy, actually.

    Whenever I have such fantasies, I always come around sooner or later to the prospect that I would find my own name on any hit list.

    Only 20%? Why stop at 20% when you only need to go another 80% for justice to finally be served?

    Using the FBI as a political tool?

    The hell you say. I'm just glad this sort of thing only happens with the GOP.

    Na, after "W", Obama, and now Trump, I'm all conspiracy theory and impeachment theory used up.

    All they do is sling poo like the monkeys they are, only, without a cage to protect us from them.

    The whole Federal system is a corrupt and out of control joke.

    Put Hillary behind bars will ya Donald?

    Kiss my arse.

    Support the Article V movement. I would give pretty much everything I own just to see their faces when confronted with term limits.
