Jeff Sessions advanced in the Senate today to becoming our new Attorney General. All that is left between Sessions and being Attorney General is the final vote in the Senate for final confirmation. Once Sessions gets in, the fur is going to fly! The democrats know this, and they have done everything possible to bar Sessions from confirmation. They used an obscure rule to delay Sessions’ vote, which was supposed to happen Tuesday. Democrats on the committee gave lengthy speeches opposing him, triggering a rule that doesn’t allow the panel to be in session for two hours past the state of the Senate day. However, it looks like their last-ditch efforts have failed.
Next, some great news, President Trump told Rep.(R-Utah) Jason Chaffetz of the House Oversight Committee he was doing a great job and to keep it up. Chaffetz is in the process of investigating Hillary Clinton, so it sounds like he is free to do what needs to be done. Chaffetz was so excited with what President Trump told him, he told everyone. Someone asked him if he was going to investigate Trump, and he said absolutely not. Below is the video of Chaffetz sharing the good news with his colleagues.
The US Federal Department is considering to bring child pornography charges against former Democrat Anthony Weiner that could send him to prison for 15 years, a media report has said.
Weiner has been under investigation since a 2016 report revealed that he had exchanged lewd messages with an underage girl in North Carolina.
His lawyers have been meeting with Manhattan federal prosecutors in a bid to minimise his potential punishment, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Weiner could be charged with production of child porn for allegedly soliciting explicit photos of the teen, the Post said.
He was forced to resign his House seat in the scandal that derailed his 2013 comeback campaign for mayor by sending lewd texts under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger”.
The crime carries a mandatory minimum prison term of 15 years, and a maximum of 30.
Other charges under consideration include receipt of child pornography, which carries a five-year mandatory minimum, and possession of child pornography, the report added.
The laptop Weiner used to communicate with the girl was seized by the feds and helped derail Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid when FBI Director James Comey announced in October 2016 that some of her emails to Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, had been found on it.
In conclusion, we seem to be really moving along in getting closer to the real culprit Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The path that Jason Chaffetz, Preet Bharara, and Jeff Sessions are on is one in the same. Jeff Sessions has already said he must recuse himself from Hillary’s investigation, due to a comment he made during the Presidential campaign. But he will have those under him to do what needs to be done.
One more thing, Jason Chaffetz is making it very clear that Hillary’s “emails” are federal documents – not emails!
The messages sent through Hillary Clinton’s computers weren’t just emails, they’re federal records, and the House committee investigating her email practices will “get to the truth,” its chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, said Wednesday.
“There are a lot of documents and things out there the public has a right to have,” the Utah Republican told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program. “There are federal records. They’re not her emails, and we are going to get to the truth.”
On Tuesday, Chaffetz released a letter he wrote asking a federal prosecutor to determine if Clinton or her staff played a role in a Colorado technology firm’s deletion of thousands of her emails in 2015.
Clinton and her aide and attorney, Cheryl Mills, told FBI investigators in questioning during July they did not have a role in the deletions. The Colorado firm’s deletions were separate from another series of deletions occurring before she turned 33,000 messages over to the State Department.
Chaffetz, who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wrote a separate letter warning the Denver firm, which had hosted Clinton’s server, that one of the engineers who deleted her files could face federal criminal charges.
“More than two years after she left office suddenly, when the subpoenas were in place, a preservation order is in place, you have this high level meeting with David Kendall, with Cheryl Mills, the top lieutenants there for Hillary Clinton,” Chaffetz told Fox News on Wednesday.
