It is said that people are to be judged by their fruit. In the case of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the fruit he has borne is wickedly bitter. Sessions did this by recusing himself  from “any matter relating in any way” to the 2016 presidential campaigns and elections.
First, consider the bombshell dropped earlier this week. Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chairman, Donna Brazile made it known  that Hillary Clinton guaranteed herself the nomination by seizing control of the DNC, which meant Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
Taken from an excerpt of her book, published by POLITICO, Brazile wrote: 
“…in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”
Brazile then admitted that the primary was rigged (regardless of her telling President Donald Trump she did not). In the POLITICO piece, Brazile left no wiggle room for herself:
I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was rigging the system to throw the primary to Hillary, but I could not find any in party affairs or among the staff. I had gone department by department, investigating individual conduct for evidence of skewed decisions, and I was happy to see that I had found none. Then I found this agreement.

The agreement Brazile was referring to is the one below. It was authored by Hillary’s Campaign Manager Robby Mook and sent to the DNC’s CEO, with a copy going also to Marc Elias. Elias is the DNC Attorney from Perkins Coie that is allegedly behind the funding  of the now debunked dossier authored by Christopher Steele and produced by Fusion GPS.
This Joint Fundraising Agreement laid out the entire arrangement. Hillary was to control the DNC and steal the nomination:

Now have a listen to part of Sessions’ statement about his recusal in March. He took himself completely out of investigating any of this, in no uncertain terms.
If you think that statement sounds like the political equivalent of Pontius Pilate, you’re not far off. Sessions actually washed his hands completely of something it sounds like he knew was going on. As one of only 100 U.S. Senators for 20 years,  Sessions has to know far more about the internal machinations than he is letting be known. The proof is in the sweeping recusal statement. It is a blatant statement of see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil.
It further begs the question: How much has Sessions looked the other way in his 20 year Senate career? Is it a pattern of behavior that must continue in order to keep bodies buried and skeletons in closets?
So who IS in charge of investigating this Hillary bombshell? Who knows? The only thing we DO know is it’s not the head of the Department that should oversee such an investigation.
After Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the 2016 elections, the decision to appoint a Special Counsel fell to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein proceeded to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who surrounded himself with attorneys that were Clinton loyalists and donors.
In late October, Mueller’s investigation  made news with the indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. The charges had nothing to do with collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Russians and stemmed from things Manafort did no later than 2014, well before leading the Trump campaign.
The timing of the indictment fueled speculation that Mueller was eager to divert from increased interest in another scandal involving the Clintons. In particular, the sale of 20% of America’s Uranium supply to the Russians, with more than $140 million going to the Clinton Foundation when Hillary was Secretary of State.
Further conflicts for Mueller include his role as FBI Director when the Uranium deal was taking place. In fact, Wikileaks released documents which showed that in 2009, Mueller actually traveled to Russia personally with Uranium  that he handed over to the Russian government for testing in a legal matter involving the government of Georgia.
Later, Mueller and the FBI he led would become an integral part of the Uranium One deal that handed over 20% of U.S. Uranium to Russian control. Mueller had to have known about it. In a statement released by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), he referred to Mueller as “hopelessly compromised” relative to his role as Special Counsel because of his role in the Uranium One deal.
Here is part of Gaetz’s statement, via Zero Hedge: 
…The FBI, led at the time by Robert Mueller, required the confidential witness to sign a non-disclosure agreement. When the witness attempted to contact Congress and federal courts about the bribery and corruption he saw, he was threatened with legal action. By silencing him, Obama’s Justice Department and Mueller’s FBI knowingly kept Congress in the dark about Russia’s significant and illegal involvement with American uranium companies.
These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately…
Evidence that the Russians were engaged in illegal activities involving bribery, kickbacks, extortion, racketeering and “Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil”  as described by John Solomon in an article published by The Hill, is far from scant. All of this began to surface in 2010. Rather than prosecute, the Department of Justice allowed the behavior to continue as it conducted a drawn out investigation that lasted years.
None other than Rosenstein and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe oversaw this investigation.
Via The Hill: 
The investigation was ultimately supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who now serves as President Trump’s deputy attorney general, and then-Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe, now the deputy FBI director under Trump, Justice Department documents show.
McCabe made news when it was learned that his wife’s political campaign received close to $500,000  from the Political Action Committee (PAC) of staunch Hillary Clinton ally and then Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. This generous contribution took place shortly after it became obvious that Hillary’s private email server was becoming problematic.
That Rosenstein would select Mueller says more about Rosenstein’s conflicts than Sessions’. In addition to being compromised by leading the investigation into Russia’s activities on American soil, Rosenstein selected a man in Mueller that was conflicted in another way.
Both Mueller and his successor as FBI Director, James Comey,  are extremely close. The catalyst for the calls for a Special Counsel into the claims that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections by colluding with the Trump campaign, was in fact the firing of Comey by Trump.
The relationship between Comey and Mueller  is obviously known by Rosenstein. As such, Rosenstein knowingly compromised any investigation into Russian election interference by selecting Mueller and Mueller knowingly did so by accepting the job.
It was reported earlier this month by Breitbart that Rep. Gaetz was told by Sessions on September 28th that the Attorney General would also recuse himself in the Uranium One investigation. 
All of this is an indictment of Sessions. In recusing himself, he has actually made the DOJ more corrupt by claiming the mantle of integrity while handing a bogus investigation over to individuals who are far more corrupt, compromised and conflicted.
That is, unless, Sessions is more corrupt, compromised or conflicted than any of them.
In any case, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has only brought more shame to the Department of Justice, not by what he’s done but what he’s chosen not to do.
