AG Sessions Says DOJ to 'Pull Back' on Police Department Civil Rights Suits - NBC News
Sessions said such a move would not be "wrong or insensitive to civil rights or human rights." Instead, he said people in poor and minority communities must feel free from the threat of violent crime, which will require more effective policing with help from the federal government.
Quite clearly, Sessions is saying stopping crime is more important than civil rights.

Imagine how much better life will be in poor in minority communities when crime is all but absent, and they only need worry about being harassed, falsely thrown in jail or even killed because of the color of their skin by the very people 'protecting' them.

Jeff Sessions Issues Ominous Warning On State Marijuana Legalization | The Huffington Post
“Experts are telling me there’s more violence around marijuana than one would think and there’s big money involved,” he said.
Sounds anecdotal.

Jeff Sessions Warns Of An America With 'Marijuana Sold At Every Corner Grocery Store' | The Huffington Post
A 2016 study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health found “adverse consequences of opioid use” decreased over time in states where marijuana is legalized as individuals substituted marijuana for opioids to treat pain.

But Sessions scoffed at Kamin’s reasoning.

“Give me a break,” Sessions said. “This is the kind of argument that has been out there. [It’s] almost a desperate attempt to defend the harmlessness of marijuana or even benefits. I doubt that’s true. Maybe science will prove me wrong. ... My best view is that we don’t need to be legalizing marijuana.”
“I don’t think America is going to be a better place when people of all ages, and particularly young people, are smoking pot,” Sessions said. “I believe it’s an unhealthy practice, and current levels of THC in marijuana are very high compared to what they were a few years ago, and we’re seeing real violence around that.
Sorry Jeff, I have not heard those reports, but from what I know some of it was pretty anecdotal, and not so scientifically based.

A former W ethics lawyer says he should resign which does nothing to clear up the situation for me. Though I imagine he was a never trumper

Funny thing I noticed about yesterday... almost zero coverage of Sessions' clarifications.

That goes for anyone. You clicks for the revelation not the clarification.

I was thinking more the revised travel ban and Trumpcare sucked the oxygen out of the news cycle.

I haven't read but I saw a headline that said his amended response was essentially "my previous testimony stands"

He said the RNC meeting was just shooting the shit, while the meeting in his office was senatorial, and included his staff.

I forgot, his testimony is still in error if he was present while Carter Page was meeting with the guy at the RNC

Franken wants Sessions to clarify his testimony in person. This ain't gonna happen because god help Sessions if the Democrats probe what he knows or has done under oath.

Doesn't that depend upon what was discussed while Sessions was present?

I'd have to see the wording of the question to be sure.

Another nice judo move, though.

Sadly, I don't understand what you mean by judo. I imagine it's pretty rare for a confirmed nominee to get called back but I also imagine this kind of mixup is rare. Having a hearing seems fair to me, though I understand not wanting to subject a person from your side to the extra coverage regardless of possible problems.

That said an innocent person would be more likely to welcome it. I seem to recall some person suffering a six hour grilling this summer with that intent.

I'm too lazy to dig up the actual quote, but Franken said something along the lines of "I want to give Sessions the benefit of the doubt... he should come and clear this up", of course knowing full well Sessions would rather tie his dick in a knot. That's the judo part.

It's usually more ham-fisted than that.

I guess I'm going to have to do this every time Sessions mentions Chicago.



Immigrants apparently really hate black people.
