You would think with Jeff Sessions as the US Attorney General, a lot of wrongs which took place would be righted but that’s not the case. We know he immediately recused himself from the Russian election interference investigation which led to his Democrat deputy appointing a Democrat prosecutor with ties to the Clinton’s who hired lawyers which are donors to the Democrat Party. There are also a couple more things which makes me wonder about his loyalties.
The Justice Department isn’t going to bring any charges against Lois Lerner for targeting conservative when they were denied, delayed, and harassed when attempting to get tax exempt status.
The Trump Justice Department has once again cleared former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner of criminal liability stemming from the tea party targeting.
In a letter to top Republicans, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd said they re-reviewed the case and concluded there isn’t enough evidence to charge Ms. Lerner, who was at the center of the targeting.
Even still, the IRS is settling lawsuits concerning the illegal targeting.
WASHINGTON – Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday that the Justice Department is settling class action lawsuits brought by more than 400 conservative groups who said they were “improperly” delayed when seeking tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service.
“The IRS’ use… of heightened scrutiny was wrong and should never have occurred,” Sessions said. “It is improper for the IRS to single out groups for different treatment based on their names or ideological positions.”
Justice Department lawyers represented the IRS. The conservative groups brought legal action in wake of disclosures about the delays during the Obama administration that prompted the resignation of the IRS’ top official at the time, along with other officials tied to the matter.
Also, Sessions FBI won’t release its files related to Hillary’s emails.
The FBI turned down a lawyer’s request for the release of FBI files on Hillary Clinton, faulting the lawyers’ documents for not providing enough proof “that the public interest sought is a significant one,” according to multiple reports Tuesday.
The FBI killed the request made by attorney Ty Clevenger, who filed a Freedom of Information Act request earlier this year to obtain information relating to the investigation into Clinton’s emails.
“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject,” Hardy said to Clevenger in a letter on Monday. “It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”
Stuff like this sure makes one wonder just who the Attorney General’s loyalties are with because it sure doesn’t seem to be with the President and America People.
