Jeff Sessions back under the Recusal spotlight : Comey and Manafort - RMS

Last edited Fri May 12, 2017, 08:07 AM - Edit history (1)

Rachel Maddow Show has done a vey important piece tonight, on whether Jeff Sessions, having recused himself in all things Russia and all things Clinton emails, quietly unrecused himself or just ignored the recusal.

RMS (including Rachel herself) has contacted the Justice Department 5 times and they have refused to answer.

We know about Sessions involvement in the Comey firing, but it appears Manafort has not yet registered as a Foreign Agent, on advice from the Justice Department. Why would that be the case ? Does Sessions have something to do with that ?

1. Rachel's show tonight was brilliant.

She is whittling things down to basics, just like she said she would. Remember, ignore what they say; pay attention to what they do.

Rachel Maddow!

3. 100% right, and this promises to pile the pressure on Sessions even more, having already lied in his

Senate Confirmation.....I will bet he'll be headed back there to explain himself.

Great reporting by RMS.

6. Rachel has been great on this (as usual) Can you think of any other news show

where the next host demurred to the current one due to the reporting being so breathless, and spot on?

5. Just when you thought the corruption couldn't get any deeper, it takes an even

deeper dive. We have an injustice department, that has replaced the Justice Department, that has been integrated into the Executive Branch of Corruption.

7. Remember too, a number of Congress critters or their aides watch her show.

So in a sense, it was a heads up to them as well as to the rest of us.

Now the videos won't load. Says it's "private"?

9. Rachel led us to the edge of the cliff last night

But left us with the proverbial "?" at the end.

Why hasn't Manafort registered as a foreign agent (even though it was widely reported earlier this year that he was in the process of doing so)? Is it because 1) Jeff Sessions is providing cover to him, surreptitiously; or 2) Manafort has flipped and is speaking to authorities about his connections to Trump-Russia?

To me, that's the heart of the matter, and suggests that Congress needs to move swiftly to question Sessions about his recusal turnaround and whether he has communicated with Manafort since January 20th.
