Over the past week, there has been an increasing America’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions — former senator for Alabama — to resign or be fired.

He is supposed to be ‘honorable’, yet he fails to stop highly questionable moves by the Mueller investigation against President Donald Trump.

He is known to be the ‘silent assassin’ and ‘silent executioner’ from his days as US Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama and, subsequently, the state’s attorney general.

The problem is that when Sessions thinks of criminals, only gang members, drug dealers and human traffickers come to mind. Fair enough. However, he has spent too long in Washington DC to see another criminal class: politicians and government employees.

Because of that blind spot, he cannot be an effective attorney general (AG). And, as important as jailing gang members, drug dealers and human traffickers is, the overriding national concern right now is upholding the Constitution and putting crooked politicians — past and present — behind bars.

The latest episode in this long drawn out investigation of Robert Mueller’s is that President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had his home, office and the hotel room in which he was staying at the time ransacked by the FBI in New York on Monday, March 9, 2018 (Mueller is pictured at top right, Sessions beneath him):

Remember that Mueller and his team are only supposed to be investigating alleged Russian collusion involving Trump and his team. After nearly a year, they have not found any evidence of that with regard to the Trump campaign, so they have moved the goalposts and expanded their brief to find anything against Trump or one of his associates.

Jeff Sessions can’t help. Shortly after Mueller came on board, Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the presidential campaign of which he had been a part.

As Mueller’s investigation seems to be all-encompassing, Sessions’s hands are effectively tied.

There are those who say he could recuse, because of various irregularities with the investigation. However, it is likely he will play by the rules.

Therefore, for all intents and purposes, deputy AG Rod Rosenstein effectively runs the Department of Justice (DOJ).

With regard to Michael Cohen:

Meanwhile, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino points out the obvious:

This is something Sessions could — and should — work on:

He can — and should — assign work involving MS-13, drug dealers and human traffickers to subordinates in the DOJ and FBI. As it stands:

A lot of us had high hopes for Sleepy, who seemed pretty alert at first, but now the United States is approaching, if not already in, a constitutional crisis:

Ultimately:

Sessions could be investigating any number of those scandals and crimes, but he is not. His all-around inactivity in this regard is harming the nation, regardless of what many think:

On Tuesday, April 10, Judge Andrew Napolitano, legal analyst for Fox News, blamed the Cohen raid on Sessions’s recusal and said that he never should have accepted the AG appointment (emphases mine below):

Napolitano said the government raided Cohen’s office looking for evidence of bank fraud and believes it never would have escalated to this point if Sessions had made different choices.

[Sessions] should have never accepted the appointment,” Napolitano said. “The Russia investigation started in October of 2016 and he knew he was going to be a witness. But if he felt he had to recuse himself — Mr. President you are entitled to an attorney general in whom have you great confidence. I’m not sure if I’m the guy if I recuse myself. Half of what the DOJ does, I will have nothing to do with.”

Earlier, on Saturday, April 7, longtime political strategist, Trump friend and earliest campaign manager Roger Stone said that congressmen have told him Sessions might not be mentally fit for office. Mediaite reported on a radio interview Stone gave that day to WMAL’s Steve Malzberg:

Stone replied that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein is the “de facto attorney general,” before making a jaw-dropping allegation:

“I think Jeff Sessions is either neutered or non compos mentis. He may in fact even be senile.”

Malzberg asked if those comments should be taken literally, and Stone responded in the affirmative.

Members of congress who have met with me have told me that he’s around the bend, he makes little sense, that he seems befuddled, confused, bewildered. So yeah, something is not well, he needs to step down.”

After President Trump found out about the raid on Michael Cohen, he spoke out:

“The Attorney General made a terrible mistake when he recused himself,” Trump said, raising again his dissatisfaction with Sessions for recusing himself from matters relating to the Russia investigation.

On April 10, The Daily Caller reported that two congressmen are awaiting overdue documentation from Sessions and Rosenstein about intelligence abuses:

Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows appeared together on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday to express their displeasure with the Department of Justice and suggested a new attorney general might be the only cure.

Meadows of North Carolina and Jordan of Ohio said they were frustrated by delays within the DOJ, in turning over sensitive document related to intelligence abuses …

[Meadows] accused the FBI and DOJ of trying to hide information from Congress and said if Attorney General Jeff Sessions can’t get the job done then Trump should find someone who can.

Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller:

Congressman Jim Jordan says Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should be “held accountable” for the leadership they have displayed at the Department of Justice, specifically as it relates to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“I’ve been extremely disappointed,” the Ohio Republican told The Daily Caller in an interview Tuesday. “They’re keeping critical facts from us, like the conversation between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page where they talk about the relationship Strzok has with one of the FISA court judges, the same judge who by the way heard Michael Flynn’s case and recused himself after Flynn pled guilty.”

It’s not as if Sessions is the only one at the DOJ with conflicts of interests. Rod Rosenstein has them, too:

The congressman had previously suggested Sessions step down as AG, but he specifically stated Tuesday that Rosenstein should see punitive measures for his role in both the Mueller probe and the FBI’s original Trump-counterintelligence investigation.

Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the obstruction of justice investigation into the firing of James Comey, can he really do that when he’s the guy who wrote the memo recommending the firing of James Comey?” he posed. “[Rosenstein] signed one of the FISA renewals, despite knowing that the author of the dossier that the FISA warrant was based on had his relationship with the FBI terminated because he broke protocol and leaked information to the press — I mean, come on!

The Republican-majority Senate told Trump last year they would not approve any new cabinet appointments and still forbid him from making them while they are in recess. This puts the president in a bind. He might be able to make a lateral move by putting Scott Pruitt, current head of the Environmental Protection Agency, into the AG post.

Whatever the case, Sleepy Sessions would do well to wake up and smell the coffee, recuse himself (wherever possible), then get on the case. In terms of investigating politically oriented crimes, he has done a terrible job not only for President Trump — but also for the American people.

Q continues to divide Trump supporters.

When the original Q — Q Clearance Anon — began posting for several days from the end of October through the first week or so in November 2017 — a lot of us thought that high level indictments were under way.

Then, another Q took over, thought to be comprised of a handful of people in the White House. Since then, Q followers have been in two camps: those who expect ‘live action’ (as some Americans say nowadays) and those who have come to take Q’s news as it happens.

The first group is becoming disillusioned. Below is a case in point. Q’s original messages and others’ comments are on 8chan.net (not for the faint-hearted or easily offended, but I have retained the live links below for those interested in the threads). N.B.: I do not approve of the alienating 8chan content. Last month, Q wrote several times of ‘March madness’ and the following exchange took place (message 990):

Anonymous 875311

>>875265

I still follow your lead on all of this (relying more on the inquiry of those digging here), but March wasn’t nearly as ‘mad’ as what you sold us. Please don’t build us up to break us down, Q.

Q replied that the month’s madness was all about talks between South and North Korea and the upcoming talks involving the United States:

Q !xowAT4Z3VQ 875455

>875311

NK.
Q

To anyone waiting for Hillary Clinton to be arrested, that is not a very exciting answer. However, to those in the corridors of power, the possibility of resolving a six-decade old problem is. The Korean War never officially ended. If President Trump can get Kim Jong Un to denuclearise without a shot being fired, that would be an excellent and historic development, as no other US president has ever tried to attempt such a breakthrough.

Early in April, Q outlined the month’s developments (message 988, emphases in the original):

Q !xowAT4Z3VQ 875265

April [A].
IG report.
Sessions public attack.
RR problems.

Q

I wrote about Robert Mueller’s investigation, the FBI, DoJ and Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz a month ago. More is coming out and Horowitz’s long-awaited report might be out this month. I won’t be holding my breath.

That said, the day after Q posted this, news emerged about RR — Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. A memo from 2017 that Rosenstein sent Mueller suddenly surfaced allowing Mueller to go outside the scope of the Russian collusion investigation. On April 3, the Gateway Pundit reported (emphases in the original):

Last week we stated that the US is now in a constitutional crisis due to the unconstitutional and corrupt Mueller investigation kept in place by corrupt FBI and DOJ Leadership.  Former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort may soon be the one to shut it all down.

Mueller’s illegal Trump-Russia investigation continues to take corrupt and unconstitutional actions while criminal activities in Obama’s FBI, DOJ and State Department are ignored. If there is justice, America will soon have a real investigation looking into the Obama and Clinton criminal acts while in office.

Paul Manafort first made arguments in a suit with Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions as Head of the DOJ, related to illegalities in the way that Rosenstein set up the Mueller special counsel. Rosenstein’s special counsel order was not based on a crime and unconstitutionally stated that Mueller could basically look at anything he wanted to look at. These provisions are against the law and are now for the courts to settle.

The FBI raided Mr and Mrs Manafort’s home during the early hours of the morning in late July 2017, alarming them both, to say the least. The heretofore unseen Rosenstein memo, dated August 2, 2017, was:

supposedly directing Mueller to look into Manafort actions with a Russian operative perhaps before 2016. This however is clearly outside the scope of Sessions’ recusal as argued by Manafort and doesn’t even address Manafort’s argument that these actions are not for Mueller to take or Rosenstein to order but are Sessions actions alone as AG.

If Rosenstein and Mueller can’t come up with something legal and constitutional their gooses may finally be cooked by of all people, Paul Manafort. We can only hope and pray for justice.

In message 1028, Q presented a series of questions about the Mueller investigation, with information no doubt to be revealed in the months ahead. The same message had this about Trump, Manafort and a Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page, whose stay was short:

It was not supposed to be revealed POTUS is not under criminal investigation _ NOT YET.
Traitor.
Massive intel sweep.
Manafort was a plant …

Carter Page was a plant.
Trace background.
Open source.
Why is Mueller going after ‘inside plants’?

Oh well, at least Paul Manafort got then-candidate Trump the necessary delegates to win the Republican nomination in July 2016.

As for the Awans, see Wikipedia for now. I have a whole collection of articles, but there is too much to go into for the purposes of this post.

Construction of the border wall began on March 26 by the Army Corps of Engineers based in Greencastle, Indiana. The emblem of the Army Corps of Engineers is a white castle on a red background. Q referred to this last month on the day President Trump said wall construction would begin the following Monday:

Depending on the context, a future mention might mean this particular unit in relation to the wall.

In other matters domestic, we might find out more about the tarmac meeting Bill Clinton had with Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the summer of 2016, when he boarded her plane for a private conversation. A big no-no.

On March 30, Fox News reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed a federal prosecutor, John Huber, to look into:

certain issues involving the FBI, the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, but said he would not appoint a second special counsel at this point. 

In a letter directed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Sessions revealed that he asked U.S. Attorney John Huber to lead the evaluation into issues raised by the committees in recent months. 

Huber’s appointment is definitely a positive step. I hope it means the IG’s report is coming soon.

North Korea is still in the mix as is Iran. With Mike Pompeo in place as Secretary of State after Rex Tillerson’s departure, things will begin moving rapidly. Pompeo and Trump see eye to eye. Also, John Bolton has replaced HR McMaster as National Security Adviser. Although I am not a fan of Bolton, he and Trump are on the same page geopolitically. Bolton has been known to do what he is asked. As Trump believes in negotiating solutions rather than starting wars, I’m praying for a positive, lasting outcome.

Q also signalled that Silicon Valley giants could be brought down to size (message 989):

GOOG. ……….. BIG problems.
Q

With regard to GOOG, Q gave us a name to watch for: Jared Cohen (message 1024). He is CEO of Jigsaw, formerly Google Ideas. He worked closely with Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton during their respective tenures as Secretary of State. He was on the social media side of ‘regime change’ outside of the US.

Q discussed the necessary presence of troops and future wall along the southern border to prevent the human ‘caravan’ (Pueblos sin Fronteras’ word) from entering the United States (message 1009). According to Q, this caravan seems to have been cooked up by the CIA (Clowns) and Democrats with big background money. John McCain (‘name we don’t say’) and Jeff Flake are pro-immigrant Republicans:

Q

Message 1025 expressed gratitude and reminded everyone of the Q slogan ‘Where we go one, we go all’ (image courtesy of an 8chan reader, not Q):

Q !xowAT4Z3VQ 898990

We are sincerely appreciative for your kind words and appreciation. Means more than you know. Each one read in full. We are in this together. WWG1WGA.
2018 will be glorious!!
God bless,
Q

As I write, there have been four military air crashes during the first week of April. (UPDATE: A fifth occurred on Saturday, April 7, also noted by Q (message 1068).)

A Chinese satellite also fell to earth.

Such a close succession of military crashes is practically unheard of.

Q had this to say (message 1030):

Coincidence or silent war?
Pray.
Night
[2]
Q

An 8chan contributor commented:

4th crash chances of all being accidents is less than 1% (0.8%), and Q basically confirms it ain’t accidents. Damn

As for the satellite, Q asked (message 1033):

Q !xowAT4Z3VQ 914510

>914474
What fell from space recently?
Accident or retaliation?
Q

China hasn’t said much about the satellite and the media are reporting it as a routine event.

Q’s questions point to rogue players in various national governments. An 8channer offered this explanation, which is along the same Q themes from last year (emphases mine):

have anons not learned yet?
the cabal is GLOBAL
that means chinese russian israel britain USA ALL have traitors
xi putin and potus are leading the fight against them
much disinfo and acting
never telegraphn
make enemies guess
WE ARE WINNING
there are many traitors and criminals that can inflict damage but THEY CANNOT WIN

In closing, Q has referenced this short video from the Military Channel three times in the past few days:

Q has mentioned April showers more than once. I hope rain — justice — is due for America’s domestic enemies.

I hope to revisit this post at the beginning of May, if not before.

When we’re talking about Q and the forecasted Storm, a lot of people expect to see everything that’s happening.

If they cannot ‘see’ the Storm, it’s not happening.

Q took on board 8chan contributors’ comments a few months ago and began to make more information public — 40 per cent instead of 20 per cent (message 527):

Q !UW.yye1fxo 15

[MONDAY]
Next Week – BIGGER.
PUBLIC.
We LISTENED [20/80 />/ 40/60].
Q

Yet, things are happening as they should be. The players involved — on both sides — know what’s going on.

Not everything has to be White House-related to be part of the Storm, either.

As one example, below is an image montage with a letter from congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia), who has issued a subpoena to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, which Goodlatte chairs:

The image at the top left is Goodlatte’s letter. A copy of the subpoena is on the top right. (This tweet has the second page: the details.)

Below that are two Q messages with accompanying analyses. Andrew McCabe is the recently sacked deputy director of the FBI. Goodlatte wants details behind his dismissal: corruption in connection with Hillary’s emails.

If you’ve heard about Q but haven’t dived in, this tweet is a good starting point.

More on Rosenstein anon. One wonders if he will show up on April 5.
