Discussion: Sessions Sheepishly Tries To Clean Up 'Lock Her Up' Chant Controversy

Everything that comes out of this guy’s mouth is “sheepish”. He doesn’t seem capable of speaking without that insincere grin on his face. His southern mama must have taught him to always be “nice” or as they say there “Naahhss” even when ordering death sentences.

That this man (and, in Sessions’ case, that term is a compliment he doesn’t deserve) is the representative of the US system of justice and rule of law is nauseating. Watching him be dethroned by the Mueller investigation would be so deserved and satisfying.

That’s okay Jeff, I assumed “she” referred to somebody the DOJ has actually charged with a crime, such as that Russian gal who offered favors and money to gun nutz for election rigging.

Were you thinking of someone else?

Should Hillary actually be indicted Sessions has put her attorneys in an excellent position to move the charges be dropped due to manifest conflict of interest and prejudgment of guilt on the part of the DOJ.

Assuming we still have Rule of Law by that time.

He would have some sense knocked into him if he were hit on the noggin by a giant magic hollow tree.

Iam surprised he didn’t say that he did not recall if he chanted or not.

There it is. Future “conservative” leaders will be just like Sessions and Trump. That’s just f**king great!

“I perhaps should’ve taken a moment to advise them on the fact that people – the things I mentioned today – are presumed innocent until cases are made.”

A professional AG, in a professional administration, would have responded that way instinctively. Instead, we’re looking at one big steaming pile of shit, all the way around.

There have been a number of Republicans doing illegal things that they’ve been indicted for. ‘Lock him up!’ is a reasonable retort. I just can’t find glee in putting someone in prison. Schadenfreude? Yes. Glee? No.

It makes me wonder about the personality of someone who thinks it’s so entertaining to chant that about a political opponent.

Just because they were there and even chanting doens’t mean this is permanent. They were high school kids. Ten to one the ones who get to college change their minds.

Sessions sheepishly admitted that he couldn’t help but go along with the “enthusiastic” high school students who “spontaneously” broke into the chant.

Jeffy is an easy mark near a frozen flag pole.

“Great kids.” Too young for the Federalist Society, old enough not to be cute.

You are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Nothing in the concept about “cases being made”. Those were kids. He’s the AG. He should have thought about the example and precedent he was setting. Perhaps he did.

So he admitted that he enthusiastically liked the chant.

So is he already recused from matters involving Clinton or do we add that one to the list?
