Is Jeff Sessions Trump’s Gen. George McClellan?

American Thinker: Congressman Jim Jordan laid out a blistering litany of transgressions committed by Hillary Clinton and other Obama apparatchiks in the last administration that all of us who regularly follow the news are familiar with.  He did so in a simple, methodical way that was nonetheless staggering to listen to.  It makes any sentient American over the age of 40, who has grown up believing in what we thought were the basic American principles of blind justice, equality before the law, due process, and simple fairness, questioning whether our nation has been fundamentally transformed or something.

Really, to listen to the rhetorical list of questions Rep. Jordan put before Attorney General Sessions, asking him if those potential crimes did not warrant the appointment of another special counsel to investigate Mrs. Clinton and her mind-bogglingly corrupt, if not criminal, activities, was to transport oneself to Argentina during the reign of Evita Perón.  It’s so easy to picture Hillary belting out, “Don’t cry for me, America!,” except in a really cringe-inducing, raspy off-key register.  (Sorry for that visual.)

The questions Mr. Jordan laid before Mr. Sessions seemed to go on and on and are like those he and Rep. Matt Gaetz outlined in an opinion piece at Fox News:

Why in 2016 did FBI Director Comey begin drafting an exoneration letter for Secretary Clinton, whom he called “grossly negligent” in an early draft of the letter, before completing the investigation?  Before interviewing several witnesses? And before interviewing Secretary Clinton?

Why in 2016 did James Comey and the Justice Department give Cheryl Mills, Secretary Clinton’s Chief of Staff, an immunity agreement for turning over her laptop computer? Typically, the Department would issue a subpoena or get a warrant and seize it. Why in this case did the FBI agree to destroy the laptop?

Why in 2016 did the FBI pay for the Russian Dossier? It’s been reported that in addition to the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee paying FusionGPS for the dossier, the FBI also “reimbursed” Christopher Steele, author of the dossier.

Why in 2016 – one day before the Benghazi report was released and five days before Secretary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI – did Attorney General Lynch meet with former President Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix?

Etc., etc., etc.

When Jeff Sessions was appointed attorney general, I had such high hopes.  He struck me as a man of deep integrity, who held the same beliefs I always did about those American principles I mentioned above.  “Finally,” I thought, “a new sheriff is coming to town to clean the place up, after Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch ran roughshod over the Constitution for all those years.”

It seems my optimism was misplaced.  As I listened to Attorney General Sessions’s response to Mr. Jordan, explaining why he would not appoint a special counsel to investigate the Clinton crime family’s misdeeds, with the complicity of Barack Obama and his Deep State operatives, several words came to mind: ineffectual, sclerotic, fearful.


In fact, not just words, but a historical character popped into my head: General George Brinton McClellan, one of President Abraham Lincoln’s earliest generals in chief of the Union Army.  read more

  1. Mr. Trump to Jeff Sessions:
    “Jeff, Jeffster, Jeffadero, need you to take one for the team. You’re a team player aren’t you JeffMeister? Good, I always liked that about you Jefftato Chip.”

  2. Big FURs depiction of Jeff Sessions was half way there. This asshole is actually Mr. Magoo. I hope Jordan and company just keep hammering this shit home.

  3. Sessions has proven himself to be a swampster. Deeply disappointed. Makes me wonder if he has skeletons of his own, which someone has whispered to him in order to keep him in check.

  4. It’s not protocol, precedent, or historically typical, because we’ve never had a candidate guilty of so many felonies before.

  5. It might be worse than that, he might be Benedict Sessions. I believe he was put on the Trump team by the swamp. They never thought Trump would win but they wanted to know what was going on. Trump won, Sessions is AG, everything is great.

  6. Sessions is not McClellan. If you remember to old Broadway musical/later a movie “Lil Abner”; he is Confederate General Jubilation T. Cornpone.

  7. So weird, MJA. I just posted an IOTWReport post from August, 2016, to the Bullpen, asking why Sessions’ changed his mind about the corrupt Clinton Foundation. Only a year and half ago Sessions said an investigation into their dealings — pay to play — was warranted. And now I find your post here!

    So, I ask the same question: What has happened in that time to make him say such a ridiculous, lame thing as “Looks like doesn’t justify the appointment of a special counsel”?

  8. Sessions would have never been confirmed if there was any fear he would be any different from the previous crooks. They have him on video with a little girl Im sure.

    Forget Roy Moore, who did Sessions rape?

  9. i believe sessions is playing chess while the majority are thinking checkers.
    If anyone is being paid by soros it would be mccain.

  10. Jeff Sessions knows that if a special prosecutor is assigned right now the Democrats and the Rinos will agree to save Hillary and we won’t get another chance.
    All those pushing Sessions to act are not on our side. The only thing this congress and this senate are interested in is save their own behinds and keeping the status quo.

  11. Sessions is stupid or too cowardly to raise the specter of prosecuting Beastcunt and Magicnegroes; it would be made into a clownish, bitter street fight and distract from his war on marijuana.

    He is a lackwitted poltroon.

  12. Could be Sessions is Trump’s lightning rod, while he works on other more important things. Or it could be that Trump is still so much a part of the Elites that he’s not going to let anything happen to one of them, even Hillary, and that’s why he nominated Sessions. Or maybe there’s something else afoot.

    Regardless, one thing is certain: You or I will have no real influence on what happens. At least not until the next elections.

  13. He has been around long enough to know he could get the “Moore” treatment if he actually started something that would get to the truth

  14. It makes any sentient American over the age of 40, who has grown up believing in what we thought were the basic American principles of blind justice, equality before the law, due process, and simple fairness, questioning whether our nation has been fundamentally transformed or something.

    What about the geezers who — in that evil, less inclusive, age — were barred from participating in Very Special Olympics?
