Feinstein Tells Sessions It's ‘Not His Job’ to Prosecute Hillary Because Trump Wants Him To

Image result for dianne feinstein uglySen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had many “anxieties” and “fears” about Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination to attorney general, she said in her opening statement during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday. Can he effectively “dispatch himself from President-elect Donald Trump and his record,” she wondered. In particular, Feinstein insisted that Sessions’ job does not include the prosecution of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who we all know abused her email use and put national security at risk. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump suggested that he was going to hire a special prosecutor to “look into her situation.”

“An attorney general does not prosecute at direction of the president,” Feinstein said. Nor, she said, does he or she wear two hats – one as the president’s lawyer and one as the people’s lawyer.

“The attorney general must put aside loyalty to the president,” she said. The law and Constitution, she emphasized, must come first and foremost.

She hopes Sessions is up for this “awesome responsibility.”

Feinstein had a few other concerns. She claimed there’s much “fear” in the African-American community regarding Sessions’ attorney general nomination.

QUICK!!!!   Everybody grab your garage door openers and keep pressing....maybe somebody's is on the right frequency...

I have about 143 remotes in my house, I am only on remote #37, and will try them all immediately. TY for the info.

ALRIGHT.....way to go....my man Andrew  ;o))

It is not his job to prosecute Clinton? Who voted for this ignorant thing anyway.  If it is not the AG job then whose job is it? Yosemite Sam's?

Diane Feinstein  is a waste. She isn't worth a comment at all. Such stupidity.

She's from Frisco. Need I expound?

What a concept.  Sadly, Democrats only find the Laws and Constitution important when it limits their opponents.  When Democrats are in office, the Laws and Constitution are "guidelines"!

Feinstein is little more than an old ugly hag - her "past due" date has come and gone!

Had the current FBI, DOJ, and AG done their constitutional duties, a special prosecutor would have been appointed and Hillary would have been indicted for "Pay for Play" abuse of her SoS position; security risks of classified documents; failure to comply with Congressional subpoenas; nepotism in using her position to obtain positions for her daughter's friends; conflict of interest with personal businesses; and the most serious - directly contributing to the death of an Ambassador and arms trading with enemies of the USA. 

Hillary, and any other US official who commits such acts, should be brought to account for their actions. Not only it is imperative that they be held accountable, it is also necessary to prove to those who follow in these duties to understand that these actions have consequences from the American taxpayers and will NOT be tolerated!

The Townhall article is incomplete. Sessions stated at the hearing that he would recuse himself in the case of Clinton because of statements he had made about her during the campaign and turn over the case to his Deputy (not yet  named, but it will have to be someone who is not on record with comments about Clinton). 

One thing that needs to be utterly destroyed in American society is this worship of what is "politically correct" being touted as the gold standard of conduct.

In my view, Sessions should absolutely NEVER recuse himself because he labeled something precisely what it was. Clinton is a lying thief, and there is absolutely no question whatsoever that she is. So too, is Obama.

Recuse is associated with bias, with discrimination and has no merit or value whatsoever when it comes to hard, proven beyond any shadow of doubt, fact.

Clinton is guilty even if she is never formally charged. The entire world knows that she is. She has convicted herself many times over. The only thing the AG must do is make it official in the bogus, fraudulent legal world that PRETENDS to be concerned with justice.

There is no justice. Look at that arrogant freakish hero of the democrats, Obama. Look at him! Giving a farewell speech in gruesome Chicago pretending that due to him and his heroics, ALL is much better since he parked his rear end in the office, the Oval Office, the one he made a joke of. Where is the justice for this treasonous goon?

How on earth can we be a Nation of Law when we allow political correctness to take the rightful place of it.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
