Wednesday, Breitbart News reported that Jeff Sessions – when meeting with Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee — refused to discuss appointing a Special Prosecutor to investigate Fusion GPS or Uranium One.
”He said that anything that had to do with 2016 election, or Russia, or the candidates in the 2016 election, fell under the scope of his recusal, and he left the room,” Gaetz said.
Well as you can imagine a lot of people were disgusted with the news.
Social media exploded with demands that Jeff Sessions be fired.
Who can blame people for being pissed?
It sure seems like we have an Attorney General who effectively recused himself from his entire job.
Even President Trump’s tweets are showing disgust and frustration with the DOJ.
Trump supporters are demanding the President replace Jeff Sessions with an Attorney General who won’t recuse himself from acting as Attorney General while being Attorney General.
Sorry. That was probably hard to follow.
But I think you understand what I’m saying.
Well, I’ve been watching all this, and something about it seems contrived.
And I can’t help but wonder if all this sturm und drang over Jeff Sessions is a great, big misdirect.
After all, what better way to distract the press from what’s actually going on than President Trump sending out a series of tweets?
You know how they are.
The economy can grow by three percent every quarter and the media won’t pay attention to that because they’re too busy focusing on a Trump tweet.
Unemployment can drop to the lowest level in over seventeen years. But the media doesn’t notice because President Trump tweeted something.
Consumer confidence can be at a record high. But we don’t hear about it on the news because Donald Trump sent out a tweet.
ISIS can be destroyed and Raqqa freed. But the media can’t be bothered to report on it because Donald Trump tweeted.
You think President Trump isn’t aware of that?
You think he wouldn’t find a way to use that to his advantage?
The media act like Pavlov’s dogs every time Trump tweets.
And if they’re so busy reacting to a tweet, they’re not paying attention to Jeff Sessions.
Especially if Trump’s tweets imply that he is unhappy with his Attorney General.
And keep in mind the Obama holdovers that skitter through the halls of Justice like vile roaches. What better way to keep them from leaking to the media — or obstructing any investigations — than giving the impression that Jeff Sessions is ineffectual and unable to do his job?
The only way to ensure that an investigation won’t be obstructed or compromised by leaks is to keep everything on the QT.
So if the President can send the press and the leakers chasing off in the wrong direction, guess who’s left alone to do his job.
Of course it helps if Trump supporters are of the opinion that Sessions is a bumbling, defanged yokel with the investigative power of Barney Fife. An opinion the President himself has helped to advance through his very public and critical tweets.
As an added bonus, Trump supporters’ outrage over Sessions further distracts the press.
After all, whatever angers Trump’s base will delight the news media.
So here we are howling for Sessions to be fired. And how do you think the media feels about that?
And if everybody thinks Jeff Sessions is a feckless, useless gomer, then nobody will pay him any mind.
Imagine how much you could accomplish when you’re not hounded by the press. Or when Obama’s holdovers at Justice think the President himself is angry and disgusted with you. And even Trump’s loyal base is calling for your head.
And the Clintons, Obama, Fusion GPS – they all see this sturm und drang and breathe a little easier thinking they’re going to get away with it.
Meanwhile, Jeff Sessions is free to do his job.
I know. It’s only a theory. And I’m certainly not saying I have any proof.
But given what I’ve learned about Donald Trump over the last couple years, my gut is telling me there’s something to this.
