The FBI may seem like a completely autonomous agency within the federal government, but it’s not. The FBI is under the jurisdiction of Department of Justice which is run by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
After the latest round of FBI leaks to the liberal mainstream media, at least two Republican members of the House are calling for Sessions to resign or be replaced by President Trump due to Sessions’ inability to control the leaks.
It’s time for the FBI to start investigating the FBI and begin ferreting out Obama holdovers that are probably the source of the leaks. If more leaks from the FBI continue, more members of Congress will call for Sessions removal.
(Washington Examiner) – Attorney General Jeff Sessions has rescinded several Obama-era directives that discouraged enforcement of federal marijuana laws in states that had legalized the substance.
In a memo sent to U.S. attorneys Thursday, Sessions noted that federal law prohibits the possession and sale of marijuana, and he undid four previous Obama administration memos that advised against bringing weed prosecutions in states where it was legal to use for recreational or medical purposes. Sessions said prosecutors should use their own discretion — taking into consideration the department’s limited resources, the seriousness of the crime, and the deterrent effect that they could impose — in weighing whether charges were appropriate.
“It is the mission of the Department of Justice to enforce the laws of the United States, and the previous issuance of guidance undermines the rule of law and the ability of our local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement partners to carry out this mission,” Sessions said in a statement. “Therefore, today’s memo on federal marijuana enforcement simply directs all U.S. Attorneys to use previously established prosecutorial principles that provide them all the necessary tools to disrupt criminal organizations, tackle the growing drug crisis, and thwart violent crime across our country.” …
It’s time that every department and agency within the federal government begin ferreting out Obama holdovers who have been systematically trying to sabotage Trump’s administration. Generally, this is not much of a problem from one administration to another, but after the lawlessness of the Obama administration, many Democrats have become bolder and doing what they can to defame and damage the Trump presidency. If found, they need to be charge with applicable crimes.
