Attorney General Jeff Sessions may need a little refresher course in his own history. The former Alabama Senator is getting a Scrooge like Christmas visitation of actions past.
Donald Trump’s current lawyer, John Dowd argued Monday that as the definitive head of federal law enforcement, the president is legally unable to obstruct justice.
That was once the EXACT OPPOSITE thought argued by another current senior Trump lawyer: Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In 1999, Sessions espoused a passionate plea for then President Bill Clinton to be removed from office based on the argument that Clinton "obstructed justice" during the investigation into his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Observe Jeff's thoughts personally.
“The facts are disturbing and compelling on the President's intent to obstruct justice,” he once said, on Congressional record.
These aren't fake facts and there is only non-doctored video. And now we have another President facing issues with federal obstruction but with near treasonous issues.
Cheating on your wife in the office and lying about it is shady but... treason is a WHOLE different level.
“The chief law officer of the land, whose oath of office calls on him to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, crossed the line and failed to defend the law, and, in fact, attacked the law and the rights of a fellow citizen. Under our Constitution, equal justice requires that he forfeit his office.”
Those are Session's exact words during Clinton's trial. No gray area there, only black and white. This poses a problem for '45 and his right hand lawman.
Either the President, ANY President is above the law or they aren't. Which is it Jeff?
Or is it just the President you work for personally and support?
Twitter had a few things to say.
Did he have gum behind his ears during this? Or have his ears grown since he began to lie everyday???— MuellerTime⏰ (@KimmiAnne77) December 5, 2017

Awkward to say the least!
One particular section of Jeff Sessions' Clinton speech is one he truly needs to hear again, listen closely and then share with his boss.
“Of course, none of us are perfect and we often fail in our personal affairs, but when it comes to going to court, and it comes to our justice system, a great nation must insist on honesty and lawfulness, our country must insist upon that for every citizen.”
We'll just leave that here. Food for thought.
