Sessions vows to eliminate political bias at DOJ

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday he’s determined to eliminate “political bias” from the Justice Department, and said the department must be more open to the kind of criticism it’s facing from Congress right now.

Mr. Sessions said “the vast majority” of employees at Justice, which includes the FBI, are dedicated and patriotic Americans who do quality work. But he signaled the department has strayed from its core mission of fairly enforcing the laws as written by Congress, and said his “purpose every day” is to get it back on track.

“It means absolutely eliminating political bias or favoritism — in either direction — from our investigations and prosecutions. That sort of thinking is the antithesis of what the department stands for, and I won’t tolerate it,” he said in a speech in Norfolk.

The FBI has been rocked by revelations that an agent and a lawyer both involved at one point in the Russia investigation exchanged thousands of text messages suggesting a deep antipathy toward President Trump. The agent was also part of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, and his texts have raised more questions about bias in that probe as well.

    The only way to get rid of bias is to get rid of any leadership personnel appointed during the last administration. This should really be done at the start of every administration, but especially since the last President appointed people from his personality cult who are incapable of acting with out bias. Look at what we already know about so many in the top of the FBI and DOJ in regards to their anti-Trump bias and hatred. Look at the way they steered the investigations to harm one candidate and inflate the other. How they changed wording on an investigation to allow a person who should have been charged with a crime to skate by and continue her “unprecedented run for the White House”. Comey was just an empty suit that allowed it to happen. Now that that plan came to naught, they are using their position and power to smear and lie about the current President. Not the rank and file, the real agents and professionals, but the “leadership”, the career political hacks masquerading as law enforcement professionals. They need to go, and go now. (as well as prosecuted for violating their oath and the law, as appropriate)

    AG Sessions says he is going to clean up the cesspool that the leftist FBI and DOJ have become. So, why hasn’t anyone been charged with the attempted overthrown of a freely elected President and for their coup against our government? Why is that tyrant Andy McCabe being allowed to retire in 2 months with a full pension, instead of facing trial for his part in the promoting the Hillary/DNC FAKE DOSSIER and the lies about Russian/Trump collusion in our general election? Why has Peter Strzok and Tootie Bell Page not been charged with sedation? I suspect that Sessions may be just another Deep State establishment operative. AG Sessions should know that the American people want more than empty words. Prove your words Session!
