Jeff Sessions: DOJ will open investigation into FISA abuses

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that the Justice Department will investigate alleged abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, months after President Trump has argued that the Obama administration used FISA to spy on his transition team.

“Yes, it will be investigated,” Sessions told reporters at the court that oversees FISA warrants.

Sessions said an investigation it is the “appropriate thing” to do so, and that his department's inspector general “will take that as one of the matters he’ll deal with.”

Yeah...the only thing Comey didn't leak to the press was that he wasn't investigating Trump, even after he told that to Trump himself.

Oh yeah...That investigation doesn't fit too swell with the "collusion with Russians" meme.

I just hope they investigate the brain-dead judge who issued the warrant based on the Steele Dossier. When they find out who he is they should immediately rush him to the hospital for a brain scan to see if there are actually any living cells up there.

I have a feeling the "deep state" has some dirt on Sessions and that's why he's stonewalling a lot of the corruption investigations. Let's be honest. The FBI, CIA, NSA, Justice, and both houses are mostly made up of a bunch of corrupt sleazeballs. It's really tough to expose anyone when they have dirt on you also. It feels like this is all for show. They are all pretending to investigate each other but no one on the inside is going to go down. Washington needs to be fumigated or burnt to the ground so we can start over with some decent human beings.

I've been thinking the same thing. Sessions has pushed back (supposedly) against Trump's tweet. (Confirmation forthcoming.) Trump needs to get rid of him. He's the biggest nothing burger in Trump's cabinet.

It's from the perspective of Mr. "Everyday" your average White House staffer.

You think it wouldn't be a hard job?

Until that tweet everyone assumed things were okay, chilly but okay, between the AG and the President. Now you have to find out what he meant. What his new plan is. Answer questions about it. Etc. Etc.

It's what I am saying.

Trump promised to drain the swamp during the campaign.

I don't think he realized the extent of the corruption. The entire place is one gigantic swamp and everyone there is a 15 foot alligator. He is asking alligators to investigate other alligators so all the bad guys get put in jail, but they can't because they'd all have to go to jail.

In fact, that's probably how the system works.

You probably aren't given any real power until you are compromised either because of financial misdeeds, corruption, deviant or immoral sexual behavior, or other types of misdeeds. Then once you are compromised, you get to play because they own you.

Not necessarily. Depends on level of skills. Also depends on outlook. To people who love their work, showing up every day to perform is not considered work, let alone a job.

Sounds awful.

If you don't think there's a "deep state" you are among the most naive human beings around. Even Schmuck Schumer advised Trump to not take on the intelligence community.

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

Various ex-Senators have used the term "deep state" to describe the power structure in Washington.

And for the record, some aspects of Pizza Gate are real (others were false). I would bet my life against a dollar on that.

There is (or at least was) some trafficking going on with the full knowledge of some of the major players mentioned and they did nothing other than help the traffickers when they got busted.

There ARE known pedophiles with a relationship to the democrats, Clintons, and other powerful political and business people.

John Podesta was invited to a party that I would estimate is about 90% certain to have provided children as "entertainment" for some of the guests.

The term "Pizza" is 100% certain to be used by pedophiles as a code word for child porn.

The appropriate term is not "tin foil hat". It's "denial" of the corruption of those in the media and Washington that refuse to bring some of these scumbags down.

We know that the CIA, FBI, members of Congress, and others deliberately and regularly committed treason multiple times against Donald Trump, Michael Flynn and the American citizens with their illegal FISA warrants and requests, unmasking of citizens, leaking of classified documents, illegal 'wiretapping', etc.

The Trump bashers on here NOT ONCE even remotely said that this conduct was illegal, immoral and simply sad -- not to mention disgraceful and an affront to our American way of life.

Yet, this hasn't stopped the posters in the hate Trump world. These know-nothings want us to believe right now that there are hard working people in DC -- a contradiction in terms, mind you -- who are helping Trump every which way from Sunday, yet Trump just undermines these people with a single tweet!!

We all know Trump has a LOT of skeletons in his closet, some which have been revealed, others that haven't seen the light of day.

You don't think he's been compromised as well? I'm sure he has...he has a LOT to lose, and I'm sure he's lost a LOT already...his business name has taken a huge hit since he's run for President...more than half the population now probably refuses to have anything to do with him or his properties out of principal. You don't think that's going to hurt the Trump brand hard?

I agree 100%.

Trump did real estate and casino business Atlantic City and NYC for years. I'd bet anything he has knowingly done shady business with gangsters in both places plenty of times. There's no question he's a womanizer and probably has all sorts of skeletons in his closet related to affairs and perhaps hookers and aggressive behavior.

There's no doubt in my mind that on some issues he's threatened to play ball or suffer the consequences.
