Fox News reports:
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News that California is “not entitled” to block Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids and vowed that the federal government will not allow the Golden State to flout immigration laws … “We wanted a healthy and good relationship with [California], but federal law determines immigration policy,” Sessions told “Fox News @ Night” host Shannon Bream. “The state of California is not entitled to block that activity. Somebody needs to stand up and say no, you’ve gone too far, you cannot do this, this is not reasonable. It’s radical, really.” Sessions was defending the Justice Department’s lawsuit against California for alleged “immigration interference.” He reminded other sanctuary cities and states that “federal law determines immigration policy,” not states. He said he was not happy with comments by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who on Wednesday slammed the ICE raids in the state last week as “unjust and cruel.”
Wow. Fantastic. Sessions must be reading Nikitas3.com which recently called for Sessions to be fired over his lackluster leadership. Then The Daily Caller reported that Sessions is getting a spine over the appearance of widespread corruption in the Deep State at the FBI and Justice Department in investigating president Trump:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Fox News’ Shannon Bream Wednesday that he “will consider” naming a second special counsel to probe the FBI and Justice Department’s investigations into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
“Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations,” Sessions told Bream in an interview that ran late Wednesday night.
“I have appointed a person outside of Washington — many years at the Department of Justice — to look at all of the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us and we are conducting that investigation.”
He also stated he is “well aware that we have a responsibility to ensure the integrity of the FISA process.”
“We are not afraid to look at that,” the former Alabama senator explained. “The inspector general, something that our inspector general is not very strong, but he has almost 500 employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors, and they are looking at the FISA process.”
“We must make sure it is done properly, and we are going to do that, and I will consider the request.”
Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller earlier in the week that the second special counsel should be “someone from Oklahoma, Iowa, somewhere from the middle of the country.”
“A well-respected, retired federal judge or some prosecutor who’s well respected to assemble a team and let them do it,” he explained. “I don’t see any other remedy.”
Jordan added that “if you pick the right person there’s a chance at the conclusion there can be some type of closure and acceptance on the part of the American people. They want people held accountable.”
Great. Finally Sessions appears to be getting tough.
It gets better. Investigative reporter Sara Carter reports:
The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign.
For more than a month, the committee has been in its second phase of investigations focused on former Obama State Department officials and their role in either transmitting information or using information provided by former British spy and investigator Christopher Steele. Steele was hired by embattled research firm Fusion GPS, also under several congressional and Senate investigations. […]
