Sessions just resigned. Or rather, Trump just retired him, like Flake. :lol:

Not entirely shocking considering the fact that Trump has not been a fan of Sessions for a while now.

Everyone in Washington is going absolutely apeshit right now.
All over a guy who did nothing as AG.

Best of all, pot stocks are up after Sessions resigned !

And that larelgly was Trump’s problem with sessions. He didn’t provide him with enough legal cover because Trump thinks the AG works for him and not the people.

The problem with Sessions is that the AG is supposed to keep a leash on the special prosecutors and Sessions excused himself from doing that part of his job.

That’s what the Republican crook Nixon said too, when his crimes were being investigated.

Not if he’s a potential part of the investigation, which Sessions was. He was right to recuse himself and that was one of th few honourable things he’s done in his life in public service.

Resigning is the right thing to do. This Russia bullshit has gone on for over two years now (it started in July 2016) and it hasn't proven fuck about Russia & Trump 'colluding' on the election and it needs to stop.

That or Congress can create a position of US Attorney At Large and confirm Mueller to the seat. But as it stands he's gone well beyond what is meant to be a limited mandate and he's assumed powers superior to the US Attorney General since in fact he has not answered to the oversight of the US Attorney General.

In temper tantrum after loss to Democrat, defeated Republican judge long critized for his harshness indiscriminately sets all defendants free “because that’s apparently what voters want “.

Quote:
Promise not to kill anyone? After losing election, TX judge wholesale releases juvenile defendants

After losing his bench in a Democratic sweep the night before, Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin released nearly all of the youthful defendants that appeared in front him on Wednesday morning, simply asking the kids whether they planned to kill anyone before letting them go.

"He was releasing everybody," said public defender Steven Halpert, who watched the string of surprising releases. "Apparently he was saying that's what the voters wanted."

In court, prosecutors voiced their concerns about the seemingly indiscriminate release of those accused of everything from low-level misdemeanors to violent crimes.

"We oppose the wholesale release of violent offenders at any age," Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement afterward. "This could endanger the public." In total, at least seven kids were released, officials said, including four facing aggravated robbery charges.

When reached by phone Wednesday, Devlin declined to comment.

The long-time Republican jurist is one of two judges whose track record of favoring incarceration contributed heavily to doubling the number of kids Harris County sent to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department in recent years, even as those figures fell in the rest of the state.

Together, he and Judge John Phillips accounted for more than one-fifth of all children sent to the state's juvenile prisons last year, as detailed in the Houston Chronicle last month. Those two jurists not only sent more teens to juvenile prison, but they also sent them younger and for less-serious offenses than the county's third juvenile court, where Judge Mike Schneider presides.

But despite the differences in their courtroom practices, all three of the juvenile judges lost their benches to Democrats in Tuesday's election by at least 10-point spreads.

"Judge Devlin appears to be abdicating the basic responsibility of any sitting juvenile judge," said Elizabeth Henneke of the Lone Star Justice Alliance, calling the jurist's post-election actions "disappointing and shocking" and something she'd "never" seen happen in a Texas juvenile court...

America. Where the adults behave like children. Even the judges.

Beaver,

Your post about the judges (there's two of them) almost belongs in the misconduct topic.

Had I lived in Texas I'd have voted these two tyrants out as well.

Edit: I would not be surprised if these two fuckfaces were getting kickbacks from the private prisons they've been supporting.

The Watergate investigation took three years before the screws were finally turned to Nixon.

Quite a few people of Trumps inner circle are under indictment now for their illegal dealings with Russia so at the very least, there’s a lot of smoke coming from Trumps direction. How much fire, if any, remains to be seen.

For their illegal dealings with Russia? Are you sure? Which ones?
