Very few people speak the truth with the conviction and clarity of “America’s Judge,” Andrew Napolitano. While speaking about the fact that Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is “calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Clintons, former FBI Director James Comey, Fusion GPS and the Obama-era Uranium One deal,” this was never more obvious, as Fox News shows us today.
The judge thinks that Sessions needs to actually do his job, something that his cowardly and unwarranted recusals and blind eye to the law is not allowing for. “It’s time for Jeff Sessions to name a special counsel and get answers for the American people. If not, he should step down,” Jordan wrote, a view that many who know the truth are in agreement with.
Napolitano feels that all of what Jordan desires isn’t needed, however. He just feels that the A.G. needs to do what he was hired to do. “Jeff Sessions needs to erase the image that he is reluctant to do his job. He shouldn’t be because America needs a vigorous attorney general to enforce federal law,” he said.
The judge shows that “a special counsel is only required when there is a conflict between an investigation and the president,” and that is not what is happening in this case. He observed also that Jeff Sessions is perfectly allowed to “investigate the Clintons, Comey, Fusion GPS and the Uranium One deal,” and he feels strongly that it should happen, too.
“Do we want another independent counsel who doesn’t answer to the president? Or do we want to do this through Justice?” asked Napolitano.
When Sessions testifies before the House Judiciary tomorrow, the judge said, “Republicans want to know: Why aren’t you investing Mrs. Clinton? If you truly advised the president to fire Jim Comey because he dropped the ball on Mrs. Clinton, why don’t you pick up the ball and run with it? Whatever happened to the Uranium One investigation? Did the FBI actually pay for the Russian dossier or did Mrs. Clinton pay for it?”
He added, “These are all very interesting questions” before going into how the Democrats are going to come at him with knives drawn, too.
Democrats “are going to point out that Sessions previously testified he was unaware of any contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials,” even as the Washington Post shows that 30 contracts existed. If he did not know, there isn’t much that he can say that will make the left very happy, but it may well be the truth. He is quite busy and can not know of every deed and action that everyone around him takes.
“He needs to answer these questions so that they go away,” conveyed Napolitano. “If this stuff keeps happening over and over again, it’s not going to go away.”
With all of the people that Trump has fired, it seems that his one error may be why he kept Sessions as Attorney General. That will become more clear if tomorrow goes as badly as many predict.
