Sessions finally showed up to work! And he has a BLOCKBUSTER announcement. The American people are going to cheer him for this one!
Does everyone remember that on April 9th, the FBI raided the offices of Michael Cohen, who is the personal attorney of the President of The United States of America? (CONTINUED BELOW.)
Well, this is GREAT news! Jeff Session’s has decided that he WILL NOT RECUSE himself from the Cohen Probe!
Bloomberg reports, “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has decided against recusing himself from the investigation into President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. But will consider stepping back from specific questions tied to the probe, according to a person familiar with the matter.”
Furthermore, Bloomberg asserts, “By staying involved in the Cohen probe, Sessions is entitled to briefings on the status of the investigation, which is being conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York.”
Additionally, Bloomberg says, “Sessions could also weigh in on specific decisions by prosecutors, including whether to pursue subpoenas and indictments.” (CONTINUED BELOW.)
Could it be that the five lawmakers who sent ‘the letter’ to Sessions put pressure on him to NOT recuse himself from the Cohen probe? Two days ago Congressmen, Lee Zeldin, Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matthew Gatez and Ron DeSantis sent a letter directly to the Attorney General of the United States.
In the letter, the lawmakers ask AG Jeff Sessions, if he “approved’ or was “consulted” or had any involvement in the decision to raid the offices and homes of Michael Cohen.
Finally, the lawmakers say Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who “approved the decision to seek a warrant.” Click here to see the letter. (CONTINUED BELOW.)
The letter explains, “since the raid was distinct from the Russia investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller referred the matter to the Southern District of New York.”
By NOT recusing himself from the Cohen probe, Session’s is telling America that he is on and above-board!
Moreover, Geoffrey Berman the original Attorney on the case, recused himself in the Southern District of New York. Currently, the Cohen probe will now be overseen by Robert Khuzami, Berman’s Deputy.
