The Deep State may be on its last legs.
Anti-Trump conspirators and leakers inside the government have schemed to destroy the President since the day he won the election.
But Jeff Sessions has the one slip of paper that could be the silver bullet that cripples the Deep State for good.
Eleven Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions demanding criminal referrals for a slew of former and current government officials who were the most associated with leaking damaging classified information as well as lying to investigators or Congress.
“Republican lawmakers on Wednesday sent a slew of criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a number of Obama administration officials and senior FBI employees for violations of the law in connection to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.
Specifically, they sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.
The criminal referrals, first reported by investigative journalist Sara Carter, were made by Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL), a senior member of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees who is leaving the House to run for Florida governor, and nine other colleagues.
Signatories included: GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ), Dave Brat (VA), Jeff Duncan (SC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Paul A. Gosar (AZ), Andy Harris (MD), Jody Hice (GA), Todd Rokita (IN), Claudia Tenney (NY), and Ted Yoho (FL).
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,” said the letter.”

Prosecuting these alleged criminals would go a long way towards restoring the rule of law.
Figures in Trump’s orbit have been prosecuted for lying to investigators.
If the rule of law in America is applied equally, then it should apply equally to the entire ruling class.
Bringing charges against Clinton, Comey, McCabe, and the other members of the cabal cited by the lawmakers would reassure Americans that the system isn’t rigged.
The sense of frustration that the government only works for the benefit of the elite is what helped strike the match that led to the election of Donald Trump.
Do you believe Sessions should follow through on these criminal referrals?
