This prosecutor showed Trump is serious about putting Obama’s Deep State in prison
James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and the rest of the anti-Trump Deep State is in big trouble.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a major announcement.
And he identified the one man who could put them all behind bars.
Sessions announced he would appoint United States Attorney John Huber of the district of Utah to work with Inspector General Michael Horowitz with his investigation of FBI and DOJ abuses in obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
“The letter, addressed to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), explains:
Mr. Huber is conducting his work from outside the Washington, DC. area and in cooperation with the Inspector General. The additional matters raised in your March 6, 2018, letter fall within the scope of his existing mandate, and I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete, and objective evaluation of these matters in a manner that is consistent with the law and the facts. I receive regular updates from Mr. Huber and upon the conclusion of his review, will receive his recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel.
Sessions further defended his decision to keep the matters formally under the jurisdiction of the Inspector General’s Office (OIG), explaining that, unlike a special counsel, OIG publicizes misdeeds and damning communications that do not necessarily rise to the criminal level. “The Inspector General also may, under appropriate circumstances, make information available to the public even if no criminal or disciplinary action is recommended,” Sessions writes. “In contrast, this type of information would not normally be publicly available after the conclusion of a traditional criminal investigation.”
Republicans were hoping Sessions would appoint a second special counsel, but Sessions decision to tap Huber for this job still put Comey, McCabe and other anti-Trump operatives in legal jeopardy.
