(MORDOR ON THE POTOMAC) According to Sara Carter, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes revealed Sunday that Congress will hold Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt for refusing to turn over classified information the committee has requested, he stated in a phone interview with Fox and Friends.If Dopey Jeff cannot or will not gain control over a longtime rogue law-breaking cabinet agency, it's time for Pres. Trump to call him into the Oval Office, and tell him point blank "You're fired!", for contempt of Congress, and actionable and prosecutable violations of law.
Ideally, he should do it at a press briefing in front of the assembled media, and announce at the same time that he's firing every Obozo left-over and deep state foot-dragger at DoJ at the same time, and then start with the most senior official left, now the acting AG, and keep tossing them out until he finds one that will follow orders, gain control of the department, and restore the rule of law to the Swamp. And arresting everyone culpable for the ongoing fiasco there since time out of mind. Gitmo is nearly empty, last I heard, but putting up tents inside a chain link pen on the National Mall or in Lafayette Park guarded by federal marshals would do as well.
NLT 9AM EDT tomorrow morning.
There was a time when I would have countenanced shuffling Big Ears over to run ICE or something similar, but this sort of half-stepping in the face of outright treason and law-breaking requires he be dismissed, publicly, rapidly, and with extreme prejudice.
If we're looking for candidates to fill the vacancy, Anthony Napolitano doesn't seem to be doing much these days, and Ann Coulter's been out of federal service for a while, but I'm sure she could slip right back into an assistant AG role like a duck taking to water.
It would be worth it just to see the sheer panic on the morning talking heads shows next week. The line for people turning state's evidence would be three-times-around-the-Justice-Department-block long by Wednesday morning.
If that suddenly puts hundreds to thousands of long-time hack DoJ lawyers on the streets unemployed, or even all of them, and puts the fear of God, the president, and the rule of the people and respect for the written law back into the hearts of any survivors and potential successors, it would be one of the greatest blows for liberty by any sitting president for a century in either direction of time.
Pres. Trump should then order the acting AG to direct special prosecutor Mueller to show cause for the direction of his investigation, explain and release any information leading him to believe there is anything indicating an articulable actual crime within the actual scope of his designated mission has been committed, and inevitably failing that test, should then be compelled to explain publicly why he should not be released for long-standing, deep, and intractable conflicts of interest in any such case, going back to before Day One.
His pending status as a co-defendant in the Uranium One caper would probably give him other things to worry about in short order anyways.
Then he too should be discharged for cause, and the endless and pointless slow-step witch hunt ended immediately.
There is one chief executive in this government, and it is not the bureaucracy at the DoJ, nor is it a political hack trying to birth a functional national coup d'etat into being, slobberingly and breathlessly aided and abetted by the Democrat PR wing, also known as the national press.
The fastest way to do that is also the correct one.
Start swinging the axe, and collecting heads.
Announcing the indictments of everyone violating the law at the Clinton Foundation, starting with Felonia von Pantsuit herself, Shrillary, can wait until Tuesday. Then they can seize all its assets immediately under the RICO Act. There's enough on the record regarding her serial felonies to keep her indicted and in jail or court right up until the pending but inevitable conviction for multiple felonies, including but not limited to compromising national security, official corruption, and potentially treason. 80/20 Fat Bill goes down for good to, and Chelsea is probably going to be doing time in a jumpsuit as well for receiving stolen goods. So much for the First Family Of Crime. Benedict Arnold was getting lonely in the Museum of Treason, so that outcome should boost future tourism there.
(Then we can start on reforming the DoD, and so-called "military justice", WRT traitors and deserters. I expect a lot of the JAG Corps in all services will be similarly and unexpectedly unemployed after being cashiered, probably following courts martial, in batches.)
If the Demoncrats don't like the facts of the 2016, they can run someone again in 2020.
Until then, treason and sedition should be treated as such, and law-breakers should be rounded up and tried in batches, and fed into the same legal machine into which they would cheerfully feed the president, feet-first, an inch at a time, and have attempted top do non-stop since the morning of November 9, 2016.
Inevitably, the media lapdogs of the DNC will start yapping about the Monday Morning Massacre. That's fine. Have Sarah Sanders start pulling press passes, kick them the f*ck out of the White House proper, and let them file reports from the Ellipse outside, in perpetuity. Washington D.C.'s usual heat and humidity are lovely in the summer, and they would have a chance to interact with the pubic, not least of which the homeless and some of the shadier residents of color with long legal history with the local authorities, for which the District is so famous.
The press getting egged and pelted with rotten produce daily by tourists would be an ancillary bonus worth its weight in gold. And it would free up the vacated space for re-opening the indoor pool under the former Press Briefing Room.
It's time to cut the bullshit, and restore the country to the rule of law, a standard of behavior so long absent from the capitol as to seem an idea foreign to American government.
Drain the goddamn swamp!
