Attorney General Jeff Sessions is on the hot seat.
He’s allowed the Deep State to run wild and refused to prosecute the criminals scheming against the President.
Now Sessions has launched an investigation into a Trump ally, crossing a line that Trump and his supporters may never forgive.
The New York Times broke the story that the FBI and Department of Justice are investigating Trump campaign vendor Cambridge Analytica for the alleged data breach during the 2016 election.
Cambridge became the latest liberal boogeyman – even though they did the exact same thing the Obama campaign was praised for in 2012 – and Sessions is allowing this investigation to proceed because his chief concern appears to be placating the swamp and anti-Trump media.
The Times reports:
“The Justice Department and the F.B.I. are investigating Cambridge Analytica, the now-defunct political data firm, and have sought to question former employees and banks that handled its business, according to an American official and other people familiar with the inquiry.
Prosecutors have questioned potential witnesses in recent weeks, telling them that there is an open investigation into Cambridge Analytica — which worked on President Trump’s election and other Republican campaigns in 2016 — and “associated U.S. persons.” But the prosecutors provided few other details, and the inquiry appears to be in its early stages, with investigators seeking an overview of the company and its business practices.
The investigation compounds the woes of a firm that has come under intense scrutiny from lawmakers and regulators in the United States and Britain since The New York Times and Observer in London reported in March that it had harvested private data from more than 50 million Facebook profiles, and that it may have violated American election laws. This month, Cambridge Analytica announced that it would shut down and declare bankruptcy, saying that negative press and cascading federal and state investigations had driven away customers and made it impossible for the firm to remain in business.”
Investigators are snooping around Cambridge despite giving a pass to the Obama campaign, Hillary Clinton, James Clapper, James Comey, and other heroes of the left who committed multiple crimes.
The Times also reports:
“The federal investigation in the United States appears to focus on the company’s financial dealings — investigators have reached out to the company’s banks, for instance — and how it acquired and used personal data pulled from Facebook and other sources, according to the American official, who was briefed on the inquiry, and other people familiar with it.
In addition, the investigators have contacted Facebook, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation. The official would not provide any other details, and Facebook declined to comment.
In a sign of the inquiry’s scope, one of the prosecutors involved is the assistant chief of the Justice Department’s securities and financial fraud division, Brian Kidd. The effort is being assisted by at least one agent who investigates cybercrime for the F.B.I., those people said.”
Trump supporters are beginning to question if Sessions is incompetent.
Sessions outrageously recused himself in the Russia investigation and has allowed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to thumb his nose at Congress and the Constitution by obstructing document requests.
Sessions has compounded that error by permitting Trump’s enemies to criminally leak and conspire to destroy Donald Trump while allowing the full force of the federal government to be turned on Trump allies like Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and now Cambridge Analytica.
Critics believe Attorney General Sessions sat back and allowed the Deep State to run wild while ignoring clear crimes by the left because he is afraid of liberal media blowback.
This behavior is unacceptable.
Do you think Donald Trump should fire Jeff Sessions?
