Dissatisfaction with former U.S. Senator and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is mounting over his apparent lackluster approach to the Russian collusion investigation. Some go so far as to question where his leadership is on anything at all. It appears the Democrats in particular don’t take him seriously or consider him a ‘threat’, as not a single Democrat member of Congress bothered to show up when Justice Department official Bruce Ohr testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committee on Tuesday. His absence on important matters since the day he recused himself is adding fuel to the rumor that his days are numbered and that an ouster by President Trump is only a matter of time. And if it happens, we won’t shed a tear.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
When Justice Department official Bruce Ohr testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Tuesday, no actual Democrat congressmen or women showed up. They likely would claim it wasn’t necessary. This was all old hat and there was no there there.
The opposite is true. There’s plenty there — to wit, the potential weaponization of the FBI, and by extension the Department of Justice, to prevent the presidency of Donald Trump and later to undermine it.
Whether you like Trump or not, if true, that’s nothing short of sabotage of American democracy as we know it, the Sovietization of the prosecutorial wings of our legal system. But never mind. When party politics is involved, best to ignore it. What Ohr knows about who, what, where, why, when and how the nefarious Steele dossier was conceived and then promulgated — to the FBI, media and even to the supposedly sacrosanct FISA court — is, at least to those congressional Democrats, of no consequence.
