The Swamp is Deep and Wide

See “Legal experts weigh in on Sessions’ call to evaluate Clinton allegations”:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed on Monday that he has authorized senior prosecutors at the Justice Department to evaluate whether allegations regarding the Clinton Foundation and the sale of Uranium One need to be investigated by a special counsel.

Sessions’ apparent interest in reexamining Hillary Clinton comes 10 days after President Trump told reporters that the Justice Department “should be looking at the Democrats” and that “a lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”

Those prosecutors would be tasked with looking into Clinton’s role in approving the 2010 acquisition of U.S. uranium stockpiles by a Russian energy company —- a complicated deal that has come to be known simply as Uranium One. Uranium One was the name of the Canadian company with large uranium stakes in North America and overseas —- including some in the U.S. —- that was purchased by the Russian energy giant, Rosatom.

In his January confirmation hearings, Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would recuse himself from investigations that involve Hillary Clinton, admitting that “with regard to Secretary Clinton and some of the comments I made, I do believe that that could place my objectivity in question.”

But in a letter on Monday to Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that Justice Department prosecutors would “evaluate certain issues” relating to Hillary Clinton and make recommendations to Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether matters merit the appointment of a special counsel.”

Some legal experts told ABC News that this letter raises ethical concerns.

My Take

Investigating criminal activity is not a partisan political issue.

Anytime Democrats are implicated in criminal activity and investigations are considered, they and their stooges in the establishment media fall back on “ethical” concerns as their defense.

They think it’s unethical to investigate their criminal activity.

Democrats are slow learners. They circled the wagons around Bill Clinton, and now they are demanding the scalp of Harvey Weinstein and people like him. They see no inconsistency in their actions.

As far as I know, Weinstein was never a passenger on the “Lolita Express”. Bill Clinton was. Several times.

Why was it called the “Lolita Express”?

Why did Bill Clinton ditch his security detail when he boarded the plane?

Was he ignorant about the goings on on the “Lolita Express”?

If he was ignorant the first time, a highly unlikely possibility, why did he go back again and again and again?

Switching Gears

I have heartfelt sympathy for victims of sexual abuse, but many of the actresses who are coming forward now to report sexual abuse don’t inspire sympathy in me.

Why?

If you read between the lines, you will discover that many of them submitted to sexual abuse because they believed the perpetrators had the power 1) to advance their careers or 2) to derail their careers.

They could have walked out and taken their chances. Brit Marling walked out. I respect her for that, and I respect her criticism of the Hollywood pay-to-play system. When she speaks, I take her seriously.

I have a different opinion of actresses who submitted to sexual abuse repeatedly, kept quiet about it, and opened up only after they believed they could speak with impunity.

Some will say, “You don’t understand.”

I will respond by saying, “I do understand. I understand that they were willing to trade sex for career advancement. They may not have liked doing it, but they did it even though they didn’t have to.”

Those who were raped are different. They were victims. Why didn’t they report the incidents long ago? Why wait until now?

Again, some will say, “You don’t understand.”

This is my reply: “I do understand. If they had spoken up years ago, we would have had this discussion years ago. All it took was a few brave souls to get the ball rolling.”

I said that I respect Brit Marling, and I do, but I have this problem with her: she should have spoken up much sooner.

The Hollywood pay-to-play system never was a secret. Everyone in Hollywood knew. People in Manhattan knew. People in Washington knew.

There are plenty of people in power who knew about the crimes and failed to do anything about them even though they could have, or they participated because they wanted in on the action.

Bill Clinton is a case in point. So was John Kennedy. There are many others whose names you know.

Closing the Loop

Jeff Sessions is a terrible AG, but investigating crimes is what the Justice Department is supposed to do.

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me. Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17: 22-24)
