All need to pay attention to what AG Sessions is doing … Many have said or believe he’s not doing anything, or not doing enough. Many want to know why he is not deliberately and directly going after Clinton, Obama, and others. What is taking so long? Many want to see subpoenas, charges, and indictments immediately brought forward on Obama, Hillary, and other Obama officials … immediately. They want to see them now!

Unfortunately, that is not the Trump administration federal criminal justice strategy when it comes to dealing with past presidential administration’s wrongdoings, suspected crimes, and or scandals. That’s not the strategy, nor is it reality. But I believe as in other areas of policy and how President Trump is handling the nation’s business there is a strategy, and yes I believe a deliberate strategy for investigation, prosecutions, and following through with previous illegal indiscretions and acts of criminal nature and indictable offenses. It was never in the Trump plan. Trump will never say; ‘go after them’ to Attorney General Sessions, or order an investigation, or to seek prosecution. As President, he can’t, nor is it in his lane. Arguably, a far cry from perhaps what was going on in the Obama administration, but that’s a whole other discussion.

Certainly there’ll be no witch hunts in this President’s administration, or in the Trump agenda. In fact, we might consider Trump’s strategy to having a lot of patience, which as the saying goes, is a virtue. For Trump, his strategy also requires “a process,” which stipulates doing the right thing, or doing what’s right. I can assure you, since the Inauguration, a lot of things have been going on, have been discovered and revealed of what was going on in the previous administration. Further, there are numerous things happening, and albeit most processes are going on quietly behind the scenes, again, part of the Trump modus operandi that we have observed in other areas of how Trump deals with crisis situations. So, the question with regard to Obama, Clinton, and the most senior of their henchmen — do they, and, or will they face some form of justice? — the answer; just standby.

For this to happen, there has to be evidence, probable cause, and it cannot be seen as a primary and pivotal Trump mandate coming out of the gate on January 20th. While during the campaign, we heard constant chants of “lock her up”, those were enthusiastic campaign slogans and social media memes from supporters. Certainly for Trump, there will be no rushes to judgement. Again, part of the strategy, part of the process. In fact, when asked during the campaign if he would investigate and indict Hillary Clinton, Trump said “no”. Of course he’s President, and by law he can’t. That’s the role of the attorney general. Remember also, that Trump’s mandate was to fix and heal the country, not conduct investigations on Clinton, Obama, and members of the Obama administration’s wrong doings or criminal activities … at least not in his first year.

Now, over the last week, new evidence is coming forth uncloaking and disclosing Obama’s quid-pro-quo for the Iran Nuke Deal by him and his administration’s turning a blind-eye to Hezbollah Cocaine Trafficking into the U.S., as is more information divulging revelations of Obama’s deliberate and intentionally politicizing intelligence for his political agenda, resulting unfortunately in American troops and intelligence officers being killed overseas (which I will be writing about in the coming weeks), and most recently, the real truth about the “real Russian collusion” those developments are now coming forth. If you haven’t been paying attention, these breaking stories, together with the previous pattern of lying and deceit as it pertained to Benghazi, ISIS, Syria, etc. will likely be reinvestigated, or the previous findings provided as evidence.

The coming years should be interesting … remember though the President will not have a hand, or say in this, it’s not his game. The forthcoming evidence on the illegal and illicit ways of the previous administration, no doubt and without a doubt the most criminally corrupt in America’s history, will be doing the talking, as will the alibis of those suspected of wrong-doing — along with their attempts to distance themselves and their potential cover-ups will be captivating and entertaining to watch. Be patient, standby, the remaining two-three years of President Trump’s first term should prove to be riveting and intriguing.
