Donald Trump’s biggest mistake.

Listen To You Tell Me Texas Friday 8/31/18


If somebody spots Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the halls of the Department of Justice Building on Pennsylvania Avenue, please find a D.C. police officer to write him a ticket for loitering. Because, if he’s actually there, he’s just hanging around toward no discernible purpose.

You’ll recall that five minutes after the 2016 election, the Clinton campaign, stunned at having just lost to Donald Trump and desperately clutching for any explanation other than the obvious one, began blaming Ms. Clinton’s shocking defeat on “Russian collusion.” The media took that meme and ran with it.

You’ll further recall that Mr. Sessions famously recused himself from any Justice Department investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. That recusal in March 2017, six weeks into the Trump presidency, opened the door for the Robert Mueller special counsel investigation that began that May.

In the 14 months since, even though Mueller has obtained indictments and convictions on matters utterly unrelated to the Trump campaign, not a shred of evidence has been brought forth to support the allegation that there was any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russians. Zero. Zilch.

Yet Sessions permits the open-ended Mueller investigation to go on even as he ignores tangible and increasingly irrefutable evidence of actual law breaking all around him. The list of offenses is lengthy and the list of potential defendants reads like a Washington D.C. Who’s Who.

At the very top of the list is Herself, Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton. It is now beyond any reasonable debate that Hillary Clinton grossly mishandled classified documents while she was secretary of state. That’s a felony.

Any honest observer who looks at the publicly available evidence can only conclude that Mrs. Clinton, while she was secretary of state, engaged in quid pro quo official state department actions in return for large speaking fees for her husband and large contributions to the Clinton Foundation.

It’s now abundantly clear that high-ranking FBI and Department of Justice officials, including Bruce Ohr, at the time the highest-ranking career employee of the DOJ, misled the FISA court by misrepresenting Democratic Party opposition “research” on Donald Trump – the now debunked “Steele Dossier” – as the justification for a warrant to surveil the Trump campaign. Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie, was working at the time for Fusion GPS, the author of the Steele Dossier. Under DOJ regulations, Ohr was required to recuse himself from any investigation in which his wife was involved. He did not. Nor did he report his wife’s income from such activities on his DOJ financial disclosures. All of this is illegal.

The list goes on but time doesn’t permit. And yet, Jeff Sessions not only refuses to take aggressive action on his own, he continues to stonewall the congressional committees looking in to the sordid mess. Is it any wonder that President Trump is so outspoken in his frustration with Sessions?

Every president makes mistakes. In the case of Donald Trump, appointing Jeff Sessions has been by far his biggest.

    Well said Paul. Will something ever be done to deal with this? I feel that there is so much corruption inside, and so much money being paid (George Soros), that this will never be dealt with. Keep up the good work sir. We need you.

  2. John says:

    So true Paul!!! It’s time to fire Sessions and appoint someone with the marbles to go after the real law breakers in D. C. like the Clinton crime family!

  3. Gus Wolf says:

    Why? I believe that someone has devastatingly compromising on him. He can’t do anything without being ruined himself.

    “Mocking Sessions’s accent, Trump added: ‘This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner. . . . He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.’”

    Anyone who believes the fantasies of the Marxist Democrat political hack, Bob Woodward, has severe “holland” tunnel vision. Bob’s next book should be 1,999 pages of “How I Lost My Credibility.”

    • Holland Cooke says:

      “Holland” tunnel!
      Very good.
      NEVER heard that one.

      But seriously, and I’m not making this up.
      True story, which Mr. Gleiser has already heard:

      The Holland Tunnel was named after John Philip Holland.
      Inventor of the submarine.
      And, yes, in fact, as my late Dad’s research ascertained, a distant cousin.

      Now, back to the countdown…

        Dream on! It is almost always a mistake to reply to foolishness because some might be mislead into thinking there is anything worthwhile there to start with. It’s better to stand back and let fabrications (MSM propaganda without value) shine, as I shall do now!

        • Holland Cooke says:

          NOT “almost.”

          Never forget: People-who-happen-to see things differently than you do aren’t just wrong. They’re lesser people.

          Yet their welcome here is evidence that Mr. Gleiser is more welcoming.

          • C M Solomon says:

            It’s the ISSUE not the PERSON. That’s right, go ahead and demonize the opposition at a personal level. Don’t argue the case on its merits – this is a typical Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tactic.

            If I think you are wrong, I say so, get used to it. You have the freedom to speak, not the freedom for anyone to HEAR you or accept something that is foolish and without merit if they don’t want to. That’s all – and everyone knows this. MSM propaganda is foolishness (to me)!
