“I believe the proper thing for me to do would be to recuse myself from any questions involving those kind of investigations that involve Secretary Hillary Clinton.” Jeff Sessions
According to Jeff Sessions: “This country does not punish its political enemies, but this country ensures that no one is above the law.” Pay closer attention to the second half of that quote.
Translation: Sessions won’t be involved in a Clinton prosecution, but that doesn’t mean a special prosecutor won’t be employed to ensure that no one, including Hillary Clinton, is above the law.
In light of the fact that Hillary was once his political opponent, Sessions feels it would be imprudent for him to oversee any type of prosecution against Hillary or her role in the Clinton Global Initiative as it may violate the unwritten rule regarding the punishing of a political enemy. Consequently, Sessions is also adamant in his belief that no one is above the law in America.
THE THREAT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD – (WATCH)
LOOKING A GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH
Following his historic win on November 8th, Donald Trump delivered a gracious victory speech, had an extended and pleasant meeting with Barack Obama regarding a smooth transition and the sharing of ideas regarding U.S. policy and was ready to take on the American people’s business. Shortly thereafter, speaking to 60 Minutes about appointing a special prosecutor for the woman he spent many months referring to as “crooked” Hillary Clinton, Trump said: “I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them. They’re, they’re good people,” Okay cool, the election is over, time for Trump to move on with running the country and for Clinton to fade out of the picture for a bit and evaluate her options for future endeavors – at least that’s how it should have gone down.
Instead, a coordinated move to undermine Trump’s legitimacy had already been underway. It was just too difficult for Clinton, Obama, the Democrat Party and most of the mainstream media to come to terms with the fact that man they had spent 18 months mocking and joking about was actually about to become the 45th President of the United States.
First, Hillary had gotten behind a sham recall effort by Dr. Jill Stein which encompassed none other than the three states that Trump breached in order to ensure his electoral college victory, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – all three were “supposed” to be democrat strongholds.

Secondly, the “election was hacked by a foreign gov’t” narrative went into effect. When the treasure hunt for voter fraud produced only fool’s gold (Trump’s vote count actually INCREASED after the recounts were finished), a new tactic was needed quickly and Russia drew the short straw. When you hear of foreign hacking, the first country that should come to mind is China, but China didn’t fit properly into the democrat’s strategy of linking Russia to Trump, Assange and Tillerson. Never mind the facts that Hillary allowed Russia to attain 20% of U.S. uranium when she allowed Russia to acquire Uranium One, and presented the country with a really cool reset button.
According to Clinton Cash, the total donations from Uranium One shareholders to the Clinton Foundation exceeded $145 million, in the run-up to Hillary Clinton’s State Department approving the Rosatom deal, which gave Russia control over about 20 percent of U.S. uranium.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
[…] Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown. But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors. http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/07/25/flashback-clintons-loved-russia-enough-sell-uranium/ Why would Russia want ANYONE BUT Hillary Clinton in the White House??
Finally, Obama made some waves in his promised “smooth transition” when he attempted to undermine Trump and his transition team through his press secretary, Josh Earnest. Via The Washington Times: Despite pledging a “smooth and efficient” transition on the day after Mr. Trump’s victory, Mr. Obama has presided over an increasingly acrimonious war of words between the White House and the president-elect’s team.
The Obama administration’s bitterness and disappointment over Hillary Clinton’s loss erupted into the open last week as the president’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, accused Mr. Trump for four consecutive days of encouraging Russia’s suspected meddling in the election and ignoring the ramifications.
“Earnest seems to want to delegitimize the election,” said Republican strategist John Feehery. “It’s very dangerous and seemingly counter to the wishes of the president.”
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod went further, saying it was “highly unlikely” that the White House press secretary would take a week’s worth of verbal shots at Mr. Trump without the president’s approval. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/dec/18/obama-ditching-promise-of-smooth-transition-to-tru/
