The following is a fictional account of the written and oral communications between a political science professor and the students of an honors seminar in an East Coast liberal arts college.
Here is another piece I just wrote that will be used in the Fall semester which I hope several of you will attend. Sometimes the crucial part of a problem is so close to the center that it is overlooked. I think today that the strange absence of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions is a perfect example.
It would be hard to find a better choice than Senator Jeff Sessions for this important post. The AG’s role in any administration is to oversee the functioning of the nation’s law enforcement forces and to provide advice, counsel and protection to the office of the President. It is that last responsibility that is clearly lacking. Mr. Sessions early in his confirmation process recused himself from any involvement in the investigation of President Elect Trump or candidate Trump and collusion with the Russians. This was a serious mistake.
Months later, no evidence has been discovered in any of several investigations that there was any Republican collusion with the Russians. During all that time Attorney-General Sessions has been nearly invisible. Now through a process worthy of a fiction novel, a special consul has been appointed by Mr. Session’s deputy, Mr. Rosenstein. A special counsel that should have been rejected due to his long-standing and close personal and professional relationship with fired FBI Director, James Comey. Mr. Mueller, a former Director of the FBI, has been hiring a steady stream of legal professionals with strong ties, financial and political, to Hillary Clinton or the Clinton Foundation. Does anyone think a fair and impartial investigation will be conducted by this group?
The special consul’s or independent consul’s investigation could go on for more than a few years. Remember no crime has been identified. There is nothing except Progressive Party theories and charges. This totally political investigation is impacting the President’s ability to implement his policies and fulfilling his campaign promises. The promises that the people voted for.
This cannot continue. The Attorney General must step up and take charge or resign and enable President Trump to appoint another AG that will end this dangerous nonsense by firing Mueller and Rosenstein. No crime, no investigation. Let the President focus on America’s recovery.
