Maybe Jeff Sessions pulled the swamp's plug
Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast had this big scoop this weekend, "It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton."
The bureaucracy had denied the letter existed. She found it. Give her a cookie and a pat on the head.
The real story is overlooked. As attorney general, Jeff Sessions set in motion an investigation that could next year explode on Democrats.
Her story said, "The existence of a letter documenting Sessions’ directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trump’s top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didn’t exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017 –– the same day Whitaker emailed Sessions’ letter to Huber."
This story is what Washingtonians call inside baseball, but really these stories are Democrat Straw Grasping.
What the letter says is the story. That was why the tax-exempt American Oversight group wanted the letter.
Sessions had assigned U.S. Attorney John Huber in Utah to investigate the findings of the Department of Justice's inspector general, a man whom the Obama administration abused as it looked the other way at Hillary's many criminal enterprises while secretary of state.
Those crimes include accepting bribes from foreign governments to her Fake Charity, using her private computer to send classified information to others (possibly her donor foreign governments), and colluding to give Russian oligarchs control of one-fifth of America's uranium.
But Woodruff's story cast Sessions's tenure in a new light that vindicates him. I thought he was the worst because he allowed this Mueller Witch Hunt to begin.
This development is an eye-opener.
Writer J.B. White tweeted, "I don't want to insult some of my online friends but, honestly, *anyone* who reads this letter and thinks Jeff Sessions punked out and disappointed the Prez is a stone-cold sucker.
"He's telling Congress *and* us in this letter that a big ass hammer soon comes. Bank on it."
Sessions saddled President Donald John Trump with Mueller but as White and others point out, this prevented Andy McCabe and the rest of the Deep State Deep Throaters from launching their own stealth investigation.
These matters take time, even with the inspector general's report.
President Trump told Hillary "you'd be in jail."
That throwaway line may become another campaign promise delivered.
