New York AG tweets in response to Sessions firing


TishJames 26m26 minutes ago
Nobody is above the law, not even @realDonaldTrump.

Forcing the nation’s top law enforcement official to resign doesn’t give him a free pass—it only raises suspicions.

I want NYers to know I‘ll hold those in power accountable & make sure the Special Counsel’s work continues.

The acting AG is all over his ass, Tish will take up where she leave off.

Why didn't you direct such bile to Eric Sniderman. He was the one that diddered, and we came to know that was because Trump had compromising stuff on him. Trump is a clueless criminal, and like all clueless criminals, he is leaving a trail of clues.

And all the fanfare that preceded it? How it was going to change the world and prove that this investigation was nothing more than a witch hunt?

Well, it didn't.

The only way to prove that the Mueller investigation is a witch hunt, as has been suggested dozens of times, is to allow it to become part of the public domain. If it's on par with the Nunes memo, it deserves to be laughed off the stage, and Dems would likely feel pretty stupid.

Only that isn't going to happen. It's very real, it's backed by solid proof, and Trump and all his cohorts will go down hard upon its publication.

Doesn't the Mueller investigation deserve the same public scrutiny that the Nunes memo attracted?

I’m looking forward to seeing her go after trump & co. After all, there are no presidential pardons for state crimes.

"As a former federal prosecutor and colleague of Mueller told MSNBC Wednesday, contingency planning runs in Mueller’s veins.

“He has contingency plans for everything,” Glenn Kirschner said of Mueller. "I can assure you Mueller and his team have been preparing for a moment like this," he added, saying that Trump’s move would only accelerate their timeline."

... Jeff Sessions was no prize. If this firing serves to disgrace him in some eyes, then I'm all for it. What other consequences may follow, well, we'll see.

Financial crimes are not hard to prove/obtain indictments for. Cohen and the Trump CFO have spilled their guts. How long has "this" all been being investigated? Well over a year. I would almost guarantee you NY State already has sealed indictments waiting for several people for State level financial crimes.

If Donald Jr., Roger Stone and Steve Bannon are indicted by a New York State Grand Jury, there's nothing Shitler can do about it!
His presidential pardon power is only good for federal crimes.
