Jeff Sessions Goes after Leakers: You ‘will be prosecuted’

by Kelly Cohen
August 4, 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday that the Justice Department is ramping up steps to investigate and prosecute government leakers, a day after transcripts of President Trump’s calls with two foreign leaders were leaked to the Washington Post.

“Criminals who would illegally use their access to our most sensitive information to endanger our national security are in fact being investigated, and will be prosecuted,” he said in a press conference.

Sessions stressed that his department doesn’t confirm or deny specific investigations, but made it clear there are many more leak investigations ongoing today than there were less than a year ago.

“Since January, the department has more than triple the number of active leak investigations compared to the number pending at the end of the last administration,” he said. “And we’ve already charged four people with unlawfully disclosing classified material or with concealing contacts with federal officers.”

    In reply to AO Poke or whoever it is that was defending the fact that we never have prosecutions by saying that Libby took the blame for Cheney and someone else. You are talking history. Those were not prosecuted if they should have been or not has no baring on the cases at hand. Oh yes that’s right everything that Obama had a problem with was the result of G Bush. What a crock.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    Sessions is taking a page from his boss’s playbook–blowing smoke to pacify the ignorant base voter. Leaking isn’t a criminal offense in or out of the White House unless information released is classified secret. No one will be prosecuted simply for talking to reporters, so that’s another mistaken statement that reporters will be prosecuted for publishing leaks. Can’t we try to tell the truth to the American people. Whether they can handle it or not isn’t the reporter’s or editor’s problem. Anything else betrays our 1st Amendment and abets Russian bots and hackers.

    1. NM Leon says:

      Newsflash, idiot. All presidential conversations with foreign leader are automatically classified.

  • Sandra Holzbach says:

    I support President Trump and Jeff Sessions. The attorney General is going after the leakers and they will continue to be charged for the crimes that they commit. President Trump is a job creator and he is working on bringing the jobs back home and putting America first. This is what the Democrats don’t like. They don’t like an outsider to come in to run things. President Trump was hired by the voice of the people to do a certain job. These leakers and Democrats and trying to overturn the will of the people. My advice is that we do all that we can to support all who we vote into office and fire those who try to undue our vote.

  • CBUJAN says:

    President Trump needs the backing from the republican party that he deserves but is not getting it. They are not keeping their promises again.

  • TexRancher says:

    Excellent program if it doesn’t get run off the tracks by crooked politicians on both sides!

  • ArtPope says:

    I think many of the leaks are coming from people loyal to the Country that think the trump-Bannon presidency is a threat to democracy and our ideals. Some are from some of his staff that are trying to undermine some of their colleagues. Some are from people trying to further their own political agendas.

  • Dea Whyte-Mansburten says:

    Trump needs LEVERAGE to stop Mueller’s witch hunt. That could be obtained by Sessions going after Hillary, Lynch, Rice, Podesta, et al…AND OBAMA. Then offer to reduce their sentences if Mueller backs off.

    1. truthseeker says:

      That is what Sessions was suppose to do, but instead he coward and step aside to let the Assistant AG attack Trump. This is why President Trump is upset with him and he should be fired for his dereliction of duty. He is suppose to serve under the President and be a watch dog, instead he has turned into a door stop .

      1. Did you mean cowered instead of coward?

        1. truthseeker says:

          Coward defines a person and is a label. Cowered is an action in which you kind of crawl . What ever works.

      2. ArtPope says:

        The AG is supposed to uphold the constitution for the American people not represent the President. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

        1. truthseeker says:

          The AG is sworn in by the President of the United States, confirmed by Congress and is subjected for dismissal or Impeachment by the President. In other words he is there to also serve at the Pleasure of the President and can be ” Dismissed or Impeached”.

          1. truthseeker says:

            He is part of the President’s Administration. Seventh in line and as part of the White House Staff can be dismissed or Impeached by the President .

          2. ArtPope says:

            Well, I hired police chief’s. They weren’t supposed to protect me if I broke the law. I stand by my statement.

          3. ArtPope says:

            Oath of office for AG:
            “I (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
            defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
            foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
            the same; that I take this obligation freely without any mental
            reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully
            discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So
            help me God.”

          4. ArtPope says:

            Duties of the AG:
            The principal duties of the Attorney General are to: Represent the United States in legal matters. Supervise and direct the administration and operation of the offices, boards, divisions, and bureaus that comprise the Department.Sep 9, 2014

    2. ArtPope says:

      Why do you want to stop the investigation? Wouldn’t it be better to complete it an exonerate Trump, Bannon, Trump’s family and his campaign staff?

      1. Dea Whyte-Mansburten says:

        Because that simply won’t happen. Mueller has no intention of spoiling his reputation by coming up empty after spending many millions of taxpayer dollars paying off all his Clintonesque staff.

        1. ArtPope says:

          It appears that Republicans are quick to believe any and every negative allegation about Clinton but none of the allegations about Trump. Assuming my understanding is correct do you really think that is a logical perspective?

          1. Dea Whyte-Mansburten says:

            The Russian Collusion “narrative” can be seen as nothing other than a whacky fairy tale. It boggles my mind that even our leftist media could have given it ANY traction. There can be no credible explanation of how, when, why, or where such far reaching “collusion” could have taken place, much less with any sort of “certainty” that this would have tilted the election results to Trump. Don’t forget St. Obama himself said this didn’t happen. Hillary herself BLAMED COMEY for reopening her email investigation…er…”matter.”

            OUR OWN MEDIA was blatantly CAMPAIGNING for Hillary in 2016 (That’s right folks, all media outlets screamed that Hillary was leading all polls by DOUBLE-DIGITS on election night last November…NOT!), but no one is wondering whether they colluded with the DNC (they did) to “swing the election.” It is indeed a shame that Wikileaks (which has an excellent track record for accuracy, BTW) had to spill the beans about the further misadventures of Hillary’s criminality. OUR OWN MEDIA should have done so…and WOULD HAVE decades ago.

            LOCK HER UP! Along with Bill, Obama, Lynch, Rice, Holder, Podesta, McMasters, Comey, Brennan…et al.

          2. ArtPope says:

            I am satisfied to let Mr. Mueller complete his investigation. Facts are better than conspiracy theories and political propaganda, don’t ya think?
            Question: Do you agree that Russia attempted to influence the election? Do you agree that they tried to help candidate Trump once he got the nomination?

          3. Dea Whyte-Mansburten says:

            Of course not. The Russians had far more dealings with Hillary than with Trump.

            There will be little “fact-finding.” Special Prosecutors should NOT be looking for unknown crimes. They should be investigating KNOWN crimes. After almost a year and several intelligence agencies reporting, there is not a shred of evidence of collusion, nor that the release of Hillary’s criminal behavior influenced voters.

          4. ArtPope says:

            There is no question you are a full fledged Trump-Bannon supporter. Reading your responses explains why you voted for him (admittedly I am assuming you voted for him) and continue to support him.
            I am very proud of my vote not to support him.

  • DandBA says:

    I appreciate AG Sessions, but his “gentlemanly” manners do not intimidate any of the animals in the D.C. swamp. He MUST show anger and become a very serious threat to those conducting the attacks on President Trump. You do not fight alligators with a water pistol. It make take a MOAB to rid D.C. of the creatures sloshing around in all that muck!

    1. truthseeker says:

      You got it, but I would rename ” Gentlemanly” with Candy Pants. Imagine Jeff Session and Loretta Lynch go into a room . Two go in and one comes out. I would bet on Loretta Lynch . If you would yell at him, he would piss his pants.

    2. ArtPope says:

      You have a pretty low bar for a President my friend.

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says:

    How about STOP the TALK and let’s hear so and so has been LOCKED UP!! Se how good that woudl sound instead of “You will be prosecuted”. Start with Obama then Hillary and Lynch etc and that WILL get everybody’s attention especially if the charges start with TREASON!! Now do YOU have the balls or just MORE talk?? I bet TALK and NONE of the one’s I posted will ever be brought up on these charges for once you have been on the Hill you are ABOVE the LAW. RIGHT??

  • Ken says says:

    It seems the the AG has decided he wants to keep the job and DO IT, Hopefully he will have the stomach to after friends in high places and join the Trump Administration in the effort to DRAIN THE SWAMP.

    1. truthseeker says:

      After Six months, Please! No way . This is the first time he has mentioned anything about being involved and then it was all scripted for him.

      1. Ken says says:

        That’s what I’m afraid of.

        1. truthseeker says:

          Gen. Kelly spoke with Jeff Session’s and assured him he was not going to get fired ! Actually it is not up to Kelly and if all these attacks that are to take our President down, and no counter attack from the AG to have the President’s back, then he really needs to just leave and do nothing on his own time.

    2. ArtPope says:

      Simple phrase for simple minds. How many of trump-bannon’s indiscretions and misdeeds are you going to excuse before recognizing who/what he really is?

  • JC says:

    Stop talking —Sessions—just do it

    1. truthseeker says:

      Jeff Session is a nervous little man , as I noticed how he cannot stand straight when he speaks and makes these little jerks . He is to well loved by the insiders and that should bring up a Red Flag.

      1. Retired says:

        You are the little man with the BS you post , did you run out of Kool Aid .Leakers need to have their jobs taken away including all benefits for life .

        1. truthseeker says:

          I agree that these leakers are traitors and should be prosecuted , go straight to Jail with their benefits taken away from them. There is no need to take what I say as a personal front. Take a look at how Jeff Session jerks and cannot stand for very long without some kind of twitch .He has had since February and not one word about the continuous leaks coming out of the White House until most recently. He has never investigated Hilary in her e-mails . Bottom line he has displayed as an individual that does not have our Presidents six’s (back). Maybe you could try to be a little more open minded. It does not mean you have to agree, but just remember some people may have a different view. That does not make them right and you wrong. Remember, ” A mind is like a Parachute, it does not work if it cannot open. “. Don’t worry, be happy!

          1. ArtPope says:

            There is a difference in political leaks and classified leaks.

          2. truthseeker says:

            A Political leak can come directly from the source in order to get the word out without the fall back attacked to it from the leak. Classified is the lowest level and not that threatening, but the enemy will use what ever information it needs to use as a follow-up or path to greater information.

          3. Retired says:

            That is what the Idiots do not understand .

          4. truthseeker says:

            I’m wondering if President Trump has decided to conduct his business on one of his Properties and I also wonder if that renovation of the Oval Office was also done to search for bugs that may have been planted., Another wonder was why does his Secret Service people allow the Press to peer into his Office, they can easily read his lips and get the News that way.

          5. Retired says:

            It’s obvious why he uses his places , less tag along people which includes Secret service . Supposedly the renovation was planned for quite a while . the press peeping has gone on a long time , telephoto lenses are getting better all the time .

          6. truthseeker says:

            I noticed how they rushed him into the White House. It was to keep those leftover in place. I would not of moved in until every last one of these left overs had been fired and replaced, but I understand he values his time and his agenda was for the more important people which took months of delay to get nominated. I was noticing the mass amount of people that had piled into the back of Air Force One. President Lyndon Johnson was allowed a mini Air Force One that he would take to his Ranch and could only hold maybe six people. As far as the subject of Telephoto Lenses , it may be a good Idea to take over Mitch McConnell’s office . Notice he had his own Private Elevator that took him up to his own Floor, then you walked down a long hall way that ended on his own Private Balcony and then turned left through a double door way to the next double door way into his Office. I would put them all on Part time status and fill those Office that the Congress people had with the White House Staff. Look where the First Lady had her Office ? It’s in a Basement .

          7. Retired says:

            Much of it is classified .

          8. Retired says:

            You forget about all the Crap Obozo Pulled After Hillary Lost until the morning of Trump taking Office . there are over 129 appointment being held by Congress and the other day it said only 22 have been approved , so yes the man is very limited as well as Trump with what they can do . Congress is the Biggest problem the USA has , all they care about is where the campaign money comes from . If they cared the recess would have been canceled and stayed in WDC to do the job being paid for .Congress is like our Educators ,they want a big pay check and work as little as possible .

          9. dmttbt says:

            We need justice and the people we need it on are the people we have to carry out that justice. Short of a coup we have very little chance that the wrongs will be made right.

            The coup is already there led by Clitton .

        2. podunk1 says:

          Sessions needs to use and enforce with Amendment 14 – 3, which automatically bans offenders from ANY US OFFICE for engagement in insurrection (speech/press) and rebellion (acts) against Constitution authority, or “comforting enemies” of the Constitution (99% of progressives), and enforce 14-4… impound wages/wealth/retirement, etc., for any aid or abetting monies used, which by definition includes wages, expenses, & government facilities etc. used in the process of “engagement”!

          It’s “Supreme law, anything to the contrary notwithstanding” (Article 6), every official judge is allegiance bound to to “defend without ANY mental reservation or purpose of evasion”!

          1. podunk1 says:

            Constitution text source… Key Supreme Law text in 14-3&4… It’s brutal & blunt against treason & separate from impeachment (Article 1).. check it out… IT IS SUPREME LAW, above all other law and every official/judge in the USA!

            14-3 “No person shall… hold any office… having previously taken an oath… …(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies… . But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”;

            14-4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…”!!

            Every citizen owns those words & all are free to copy & use them against ANYONE or thing to the contrary!

          2. Retired says:

            With what you are writing why is Schumer still in office after he made the statement to stop Trump at everything he tries ???? He Is another Weasel like Reid – Clintons and Obama .

          3. podunk1 says:

            Like Sodom & Gomorrah, there are no righteous people left in government. Looks the mad men running Iran and N-Korea are busy making satanic solutions for the Sodomites in DC… doesn’t look good for any of us.

          4. Retired says:

            They are Screwing all of us while they live high .

          5. Retired says:

            But they sure do not rule that way when it comes to Demon Rats , Hillary and Obama proved that .

          6. podunk1 says:

            True, but we citizens have rights to sue over Civil Rights, & idiots like Schumer affect a lot more people than his own district. Jury suits for nominal damages and unlimited punitive damages are nominal cost & lead into things like Amendment 14 if a jury rules they violated the Constitution…

          7. Retired says:

            Try Finding a Judge that would carry it out against a elected unless he is Republican ????

          8. podunk1 says:

            Excellent point that needs lots of head butting local discussions, if we ever expect to save the USA! Judges are thoroughly indoctrinated in the supremacy of SCOTUS… today, to a point where the Constitution is meaningless!

            Without any question, 35 words within the Constitution, in Article 6 MUST BE ENFORCED BY EVERY US OFFICIAL and JUDGE against ANYONE including SCOTUS! They’re ”SUPREME LAW… ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING… ALL EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL OFFICERS BOTH OF THE USA AND STATES… SHALL BE BOUND TO SUPPORT THIS CONSTITUTION…”; AND… 2nd oath ”DEFEND WITHOUT ANY MENTAL RESERVATION OR PURPOSE OF EVASION”! The four words supreme, anything, all, and any are absolute, beyond debate or argument, and the 2nd oath phrase mandates an immediate automatic instinctive defense/enforcement!

            The 2nd oath is an individual blood covenant to the Constitution, duty to office, PLUS the covenants of true faith and allegiance… all written in the US English Language as defined by Webster, many years ago! Without question or thought, defending is each individual against ANY offenders top to bottom, and failure to do so betrays allegiance, AND aids an enemy offender against the Constitution, which is defined by Webster as TREASON, which is confirmed true in Article 3-3 of the Constitution… highest of all crimes!

            Defending is as simple as Amendment 14 Section 1 which puts the bulls-eye on (anyone or state that makes or enforces ANY LAW that abridges privileges or immunities of US citizens)! The Constitution is an exact written contractual covenant… “anything to the contrary NOTWITHSTANDING”!

            Defense requires enforcing Amendment 14 Section 3 “No person shall… hold any office… having previously taken an oath… …(who) shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the (Constitution), or given aid or comfort to (its) enemies…”)! It’s “for-real” and every enforcer and judge by allegiance must arrest and start the due process, incarceration process, prosecution, etc… wherever it happens… per 2nd oath above! Failure to do so is “to the contrary”, and betrayal of allegiance joins into the same crime circle, with penalties 14-4 “…neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States…”, which could include no pay or benefits, plus impounding wealth to cover damages & misuse of office! Imagine the possibilities!!!
            One doesn’t need a lawyer if they have the Constitution text and an old Webster Dictionary! The hammer begins with 35 very simple words. Our local judges, thus courts are allegiance bound same as any other judge & a civil suit merely requires a nominal value above the minimum, and freedom has no limit! Surely there is judge somewhere in America “instinctively” willing to defend the Constitution BY JURY instead of corrupt judges!

          9. Retired says:

            The oath of Office means nothing to heathens , Pelosi comes to mind as supposedly Catholic , Schumer being a Jew , the list is very long . Many elected won’t post the religion or secret orginizeations they belong to .

          10. podunk1 says:

            …And that defines treason… the reason the USA is being swallowed by chaos, lawlessness, debt, and collapse.

          11. Retired says:

            I think that goes without saying . 8 Years of Clinton and 8 years of Obama .If Hillary would have won, she would have put the last nail in the USA coffin

    Yeah well here is the scuttlebutt from us over here, seeing is believing so show us the prosecutions.

    1. gvette says:

      When he recused himself from going after Killary, and I’m sure he won’t do anything to Debbie what’s her name, we see what he is, Tiger. A bought, and paid for politician, and nothing more.

      1. dmttbt says:

        That is Debbie Wasserman and she has been a piece of excrement all her political life. A few years ago when she was going after some politician for having accounts in other countries banks they found out she did also.
        If you take a look at the slums that represent Maxine Waters districts you will wonder what kind of leader she is. She is a great example of what politicians are.

        1. gvette says:

          LOL…I know what her name is. I was being sarcastic.
          As For fat black Max, she has investments in Russia. Not illegal, but she runs her big mouth about Trump, and Russia all the time. Just for fun, I looked up the demographics of her area. They are mostly blacks, and wetbacks.

          1. Retired says:

            More like suckers to the Democrats .

          2. gvette says:

            Funny thing is, she, fat Max, doesn’t do anything for anyone. That’s how stupid her voter base is!

            Yup, they would bite on a empty hook like hungry fish .

          4. dmttbt says:

            I would never attempt to correct anyone. I am not worthy. I do admire your language however and I am surprised you have gotten away with it. It is ok for them to be corrupt ass holes it is just not kosher to say it.

          5. gvette says:

            You’re not worthy? You are as good as anyone else walking the face of the earth, and probably a whole lot better then most DemonRATS. I was being kind in my reference to Fat black Maxine. She’s a disgusting human being. Lots of years in office, and never done a thing for the people in her district.

      That is the problem in our Government ,no one gets punished just moved up to another position .

  • dmttbt says:

    The one thing we have not seen in Washington is prosecution of politicians. They usually leave a scape goat to take the fall if it comes to that. We see a lot of investigations and committees but not prosecutions. That is because the senate and the congress make themselves prosecution proof. When I say a scape goat I mean like Hillary having her attorney destroy the so called personal e mails while they are under subpoena. She can always say acting on my attorney’s advice I had this done.
    They always leave a person to burn for their personal wrong doings.

    1. ArtPope says:

      Yes. An example would be Libby taking the fall for Cheney and Rove.

      1. Bob says:

        Libby was railroaded for partisan political reasons. Bob Novak admitted he was the one who “outed” Valerie Plame. The whole thing was a fools errand anyway since she had been out of the field for more than 6 years, the period the law required to safeguard the identity of covert ops people and those who they worked with in the field, with no plans to send her back. And even though her husband identified her as a CIA person in the press, Libby was still scapegoated because of his association with Cheney and the desire of the Democrats to hurt the Administration.

        1. ArtPope says:

          Novak was the reporter. Cheney and Rove were the drivers.

          1. Bob says:

            “Believe what you want to believe but I think you are rationalizing” Absolutely NO proof of what you are suggesting, other than the disdain towards the Bush administration by the left.

        2. ArtPope says:

          Believe what you want to believe but I think you are rationalizing. Seems as though you are paranoid about Democrats. It is easier to be loyal to the cult if the members share a common enemy. In your case Democrats are the perpetrators and the enemy.
          Please correct me if I am wrong.

          1. dmttbt says:

            I am still puzzled about you saying I need to document my comment about Eric Holder. The only way you can document it is to show everything that was on the news and was being investigated. We lived it so it is somewhat difficult to show a piece of paper as proof.
            I do see that you are correcting people’s grammar and spelling because you think the message is not as important as the person delivering it. I am sure you are well educated and that makes you think that what you say is important. You see when you separate the government as repubs and dems you are one of those who believe it is the party that counts. There are most likely as many crooked dems as there are republicans. We need to think of them as crime families.

          2. ArtPope says:

            I agree with you about dishonest politicians on both sides. I am an Independent. My issue is not Republicans or Democrats. My issue is trump-bannon. He does. It have the judgement nor the temperament to be President.

            I could have accepted most of the Republican candidates other than Rubio, Carson, Cruz and especially Trump. I think the Country screws up on electing Trump. I hope I am wrong.

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            No one was more unqualified to be President than Obama, Trump and Bannon are business men and not Community Organizers! From your dislikes above, that doesn’t leave anything much!

          4. FlaccidJack says:

            Donnie has certainly assumed that role.

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            Sweet Lips, how you be doing this fine morning, you miss your little community organizer!! 🙂

          6. FlaccidJack says:

            Doing great! No, we met and made plans for your future.

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            That’s great, I love surprises, you’ll love my group also!! 🙂

          8. FlaccidJack says:

            Not interested.

          9. Rodney Steward says:

            VERY WISE!! 🙂

          10. ArtPope says:

            Let me know how the “business men” work out for ya.

          11. Rodney Steward says:

            Been real good so far!! 🙂

          12. Bob says:

            A wise man once said “Just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you”. “It is easier to be loyal to the cult if the members share a common enemy” Did you mean the cult of hate, a perfect description of how todays Democrats and media (redundant) are acting towards the Republicans in general and specifically the President?

      Every time I hear the word ‘ INVESTIGATE ” I know that is code for to prolong and delay any type of prosecution. Fast & Furious , Benghazi, the Four Hundred Million lost that was suppose to be for the Haitians, and John McCain . Investigation means to be swept under the rug. Could you imagine if a store stated, ” Lotters will be accountable”, exactly what does that mean ? All they would have to do is to fire the entire Staff and start all over.

      1. ArtPope says:

        You have a lot of alt-facts in your statement

        1. truthseeker says:

          That is your opinion and you are entitled to it. I’m just making an observation., as an Observation you may have a physiological blind spot with your views clouding you ability to look beyond your blinders and that is Okay, if that is what makes you happy.

          1. ArtPope says:

            i try to exercise good critical thinking skills. That is why I don’t consume political propaganda. Those skills served me well in my career as a City Manager.

          2. truthseeker says:

            You sound very qualified to maybe take the place of the sitting AG Jeff Session. In the part of having a good critical Thinking you look at what is involved with the current situation . Knowing that your boss is going to be under attack if you recuse yourself and allow someone else to fill that position will come back to haunt you. One should always be grateful for the person that put them in a place they are in, because that can always change, no matter how much another person ( Gen. Kelly) who was not affected may feel, the one (President Trump) who is under attack and is defending himself without the support of his newly appointed AG will eventually tell that person his Service is no longer deemed necessary. Kelly will not be able to stop that.

    They may get a couple of low level people ,but the big dogs who are responsible for all that mess will walk.

    1. dmttbt says:

      You are correct, do you recall a man named Eric Holder? He was all over as the responsible for the fast and furious gun running but of course he said he had never heard of it. That was in the beginning and then later it turned to it was G Bus’s fault because he was the one who ordered it. Then it was we sent arms to the Mexican cartels because we were going to track them and see what they do with them. Then it was we forgot to track them. Does that sound like a person who should be attorney general?

      1. ArtPope says:

        Please document your allegations. Thanks

        1. truthseeker says:

          It is documented, so you should take the effort and find out yourself. Your not a baby that needs to be spoon feed.

          1. ArtPope says:

            “You,re not a baby.. ” as opposed to “Your not a baby…

            BTW, if what you say is so well documented, and I don’t think it is, then prove it by documenting. Otherwise I will assume you are making it up as you go along. Kind of like “alt-facts.”

          2. truthseeker says:

            Okay, thanks ” Your not a baby” how is that. You can Google it if you want to make in effort.

          3. Try “You’re not a baby.”

          4. truthseeker says:

            How about saying, ” Just grow up and start to evolve into– what?” A Professor of English, I don’t know, just talking non-sense .

          5. ArtPope says:

            So, if someone disagrees with you they need to evolve. Is that what you are saying?

          6. ArtPope says:

            The correct word is “you’re not a baby.” It is a contraction for “you are.” Substituting the incorrect “your” for the correct “you’re” is an increasingly common mistake.

          7. truthseeker says:

            Boy again I’m wrong. ” You’re not a baby”. You are pretty smart and it is good to have a little Intellectual stimulating conversation with you. Thanks Professor of English.

  • Bob says:

    It has been obvious since before the inaugural that there are people in the White House and other agencies who’s sole aim in life is to attack this administration one pin prick at a time. The Democrats and the media (redundant) are complicit in these crimes, and violating laws you are sworn to uphold, especially for partisan political reasons, is a crime. The Obama Administration went after whistle blowers and leakers, prosecuting them at a far higher rate than other admin, yet they left behind “moles” to act as spies and leak info to the media in order to damage this administration. They have been spreading lies (Comey was fired for asking for money; Trump removed the MLK bust from the Oval Office), confidential documents (phone transcripts), all the way to classified information in a joint effort between the Democrats and their allies in the press discredit the President and his people. Even the then FBI Director admitted to being a leaker with absolutely no condemnation from the press or the Democrats (redundant). So much for the “smooth transfer of power” demanded by then President Obama of then Candidate Trump when he thought then Front Runner Clinton was going to waltz into the White House. This from the same guy who in October 2016 assured us that the Russian were in no way attacking our electoral system and you could be very confident in your vote being counted correctly. Funny how losing an election can change the perception of the “truth” in some.

    1. ArtPope says:

      So you don’t think any of the current Administration staff are involved, just Obama people, correct?

      1. Bob says:

        I truly believe that those brought on by Trump are loyal to him. I believe that Obama holdovers, including several high profile ones that have been fired, are the ones doing the leaking. Can you honestly believe that Obama holdovers are not to blame after the actions of those who have already had to be fired, like Comey?

        1. truthseeker says:

          If I was President Trump I would not of moved into the White House and that is what they had been afraid of he would do .

          1. And they’ve been trying to throw him out ever since.

      2. truthseeker says:

        Considering that Jeff Session has been the AG since February and now he is speaking about going after the leakers? He recused himself from the Russian case and allowed his Assistant AG to go forward to pile up on Trump. He will not do anything, but investigate until the cows come home . At times he stated he would make them accountable and what does that mean. Wonder why John Kelly stepped in. I wonder how John Kelly went from 2nd Lt. to a Four Star General in less than 20 years and still we are in Iraq . What great accomplishment did he do to get such a rapid promotion. He stated he was upset about James Comey being fired and is protecting Jeff Session from being removed. I got my doubt about how effective he will be in the White House .

        1. Retired says:

          It’s evident you Know nothing about Military advancements ,plus look how many Obama got kicked out making room to move up .

          1. truthseeker says:

            Actually I do. I served Twenty Years in the Military and worked in Personnel . I looked up some of the history of John F. Kelly. He had served in the Merchant Marines, when he felt he would of been drafted into service and was responsible for delivering a Ton of Beer to our Soldiers in Vietnam. I would guess some how he was credited for Time in Service, so when he went into the Marines and was Promoted to Sergeant , which I assume means an E-5. I don’t know much about the Marines, but I would consider them not to be an applicant on Promoting as a very high priority.

          2. Retired says:

            That was a skate job working in personnel ,same as a recruiter .That proves nothing as to the Knowledge of how advancements come about .

          3. truthseeker says:

            That skate job was what helped you get promoted, provided you the orders for what ever Medals you got, accredited you for your Retirement package, your entitlements for your GI Bill, LOD, and next duty station, Every thing moves on paper work. William Shakespeare said it best, ” The pen is mightier than the sword.”. You have no idea just how powerful Personnel can be when they hook up with Finance. I loved my job, because I always did my best to look after our Service men and women. I have always done my best to make sure our Team worked tirelessly to look out for the Troops. We always had your back and hopefully those who replaced us will feel the same pride as I and our Team have.

        2. Bob says:

          “I wonder how John Kelly went from 2nd Lt. to a Four Star General in less than 20 years and still we are in Iraq” Ever wonder why we are still in Iraq 8 years after a candidate campaigned and won on “pulling out of Iraq” ? Ever wonder why combat troops were pulled out, with great fanfare and press coverage, but had to be sent back b the administration that was cheered for “pulling out”? Kelly was not making national policy at the time, was he?

          1. truthseeker says:

            No your correct. That wasn’t what I was getting at. I just wonder how one gets promoted to a Four Star General and not win a war ? We only pulled out enough of our Soldiers to allow them to come in and then be pulled back. Same tactics they used in Vietnam to continue that war. Finally President Nixon asked General Westmorland to be accountable for the One hundred thousand Soldiers, when the General asked for another On hundred thousand and President Nixon said’ ” I demand to know what happen to the last 100 thousand and when you can give me an accountable you will get your 100 thousand”. General Westmorland could not do that, so he shopped for some more troops at all of our Basic Training camps.

          2. It is called seniority.

          3. truthseeker says:

            I also notice he was in Service for 40 years and not just 20. I’m bad.

          4. Bob says:

            If winning a war was the criteria for advancement to 4 star, we would have very few 4 stars. Wile he did serve a tour with the MNF West in Iraq, he was not in the true policy end there, more of a ground force commander. He was Commander of US Central Command in Central and South America, but that has little or nothing to do with the middle east wars. The last 4 stars who actually “won wars” were Schwarzkopf and Powell.

          5. If upholding their oaths to protect and support the Constitution was required to be a officer, there would be none in any of our military services.

          6. Bob says:

            I’m sorry, but I believe your assertion to be over reaching and just plain wrong. To lump every military officer into a single group to judge their conduct by the actions of a few is as wrong as lumping every Police offer together and blaming them for the actions of a few. Yes, there are many “Political” Generals, but for the most part I have found Military Officers to be just like society in general; some good, some bad, many in between.

          7. Treason is defined in the Constitution at Article 3, Section 3, as consisting “only in levying War against (the United States), or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
            All members of the American military take an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; (and to) bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”
            When the military is committed to foreign actions without a declaration of war by Congress, as required by Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 11 of the Constitution, that is a violation of the Constitution, arguably the action of domestic enemies.
            When a member of the military participates in an unconstitutional foreign military deployment, s/he violates both the Constitution and his/her oath to “support and defend” it, giving “aid and comfort” to it’s “domestic enemies,” committing treason by the definition given by the Constitution.

      3. Retired says:

        Mostly Democrats and others that have something to hide and are afraid Trump will expose them which includes turn coat McCain.

          1. ArtPope says:

            And “black a$$.”

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            Those are fine words to describe him and why he’ll go down in history as the worst President in history!!

      2. Bob says:

        First off, calm down. Going off only allows liberals to discount your opinion. Second, the reason they are loyal is mostly political. In the 8 years he was in office, the Democrats lost the House, Senate, White House, the USSC and many governors office and state houses. (losing the USSC was the most damaging to them as they rely on judicial activism when they lose at the ballot box). This makes them crazy that a vast majority of America has soundly rejected their message, what ever it was, in favor of a political neophyte. They have to believe that something was wrong when they had the most stupendous collapse since the Yankees lost to the Red Sox after being up 3 game to none in the ALCS. They lost more spectacularly then the Falcons to the Patriots (which, based on the team names, make it more ironic) They have to believe that or they would be forced to admit their candidate was substandard and their message was rejected.
