USAG Jeff Sessions, is “scared stiff and Missing in Action”
The Big Q: What dark files does the FBI have on Jeff Session?
President Donald Trump accused the US Attorney General of being “scared stiff and Missing in Action” as he continued to question whether officials in his administration have acted appropriately in probing The Trump Campaign’s Russian connections.
“The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr” and Ohr’s wife Nellie, Trump tweeted on Saturday, referring to former British spy Steele, who wrote a dossier alleging the Trump campaign conspired with Russia during the 2016 election.
President Trump said Nellie Ohr works for Fusion GPS, the research firm that hired Mr. Steele to compile the Fake dossier. “I have never seen anything so Rigged in my life. Our AG is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed, not pretty,” the President said. “Witch Hunt!”
Saturday’s comments by President Trump is a responce to a statement by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which said it was suing the Justice Department for records of communications involving Mr. Ohr, his wife, Mr. Steele and Fusion GPS.
Trump has repeatedly criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a former Republican senator from Alabama, who recused himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian meddling in the election. “Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt now,” President Trump Tweeted on 1 August.
Early Saturday, President Trump said he may intervene to force the FBI to turn over to Judicial Watch text messages sent by former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities,” President Trump Tweeted. “FBI said they won’t give up even 1 of them (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding?”
Washington-based Judicial Watch has also filed a lawsuit seeking text messages and emails of disgraced and sacked Andy McCabe relating to his wife, a pediatric emergency physician who ran unsuccessfully for the Virginia state Senate in Y 2015.
“McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people,” President Trump Tweeted Saturday. The President went on to ask if the FBI would “ever recover it’s once stellar reputation.”
“So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!” President Trump said of Mr. McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey, and other former bureau officials.
Saturday’s Tweets came after Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared on a Friday night TV talk show to promote the case.
“We’re fighting the FBI over text messages for the corrupt FBI official Andrew McCabe,” Mr. Fitton said. “The FBI does not want to turn over one text message to us.”
The US Justice Department initially denied the Freedom of Information Act request by arguing that the requested search parameters for Mr. McCabe’s communications, which included terms like “e-Mail,” “Democrat” and “campaign” — were too broad, according to a filing by Judicial Watch. The government also said text messages related to Mr. McCabe’s wife would be shielded by personal privacy protections.
USAG Sessions sacked Mr. McCabe earlier this year following months of public criticism of the FBI official by the President. AG Sessions said he took the action on the recommendation of FBI investigators who argued Mr. McCabe had been dishonest with Mr. Comey about his role in an October 2016 WS-J article on an FBI investigation into The Clinton Foundation.
Mr. McCabe has said that he did not mislead anyone about his actions and that he had the authority to share information with the media. Which it turns out not to be true.
