    Apparently pointing and saying "look over there!" works on a lot of people.

    No. If the chief law enforcement official in America refuses to enforce the law and root out corruption, he's part of the problem and should be fired.

    The DOJ is obligated to ENFORCE THE LAW, not "cover up crimes" as did the Obama DOJ for years...

    Your justice system works by appointing judges that have never tried cases. It's a fantastic system and unique to the USA.
    It's no wonder that so many people are in jails, and based on the superb quality of dispensing it, maybe half of them innocent.
    But, heh! It's America, so who cares?

    "What's it going to take to get a special counsel?" Jordan asked repeatedly. He cited leaks about a dossier gathered by a former British intelligence officer and paid for in part by Democrats and the FBI.

    Sessions said that it would require "a factual basis" and "the proper standards" to put the matter before a special counsel.

    Republicans have increasingly demanded such a move in recent weeks, but Sessions brushed those aside as Jordan grew angrier.

    "You can have your idea, but sometimes we have to study what the facts are," Sessions told Jordan.

    "Sir, I exist!" cried a man to the Universe.
    "However," replied the Universe, "that fact has not created in me a sense of obligation."

    Appeals court judges do not try cases; they review already tried cases. What you know about our court system wouldn't fill a thimble. just like your ridiculous claims of an imaginary "separation of powers" between the Executive Branch and itself....

    What you said he said: Umm, just today on Capitol Hill he said there wasn't enough to warrent a special counsel.


    What he ACTUALLY SAID:
    Sessions said that it would require "a factual basis" and "the proper standards" to put the matter before a special counsel.
