Jeff Sessions joins group of young conservatives briefly in “lock her up” chant
Attorney General Jeff Sessions briefly joined a group of young conservatives yesterday in a “lock her up” chant. Sessions was speaking on the topic of freedom of speech at Turning Point USA High School Leadership meeting at George Washington University.
Sessions has taken considerable heat from conservatives for his meek and pretty much invisible actions on Hillary Clinton, James Comey, James Clapper, Peter Strzok, and other Obama era DOJ officials. Meanwhile he recused himself early of the Mueller investigation so Rod Rosenstein has basically been the Attorney General. But at least Tuesday he struck a different tone.
“I like this bunch, I gotta tell ya, you’re not going to be backing down. Go get em, go get em! Sessions said ” when the audiences started yelling lock her up, a mantra at Trump rallies regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal.
Sessions chuckled and even repeated the chant once himself, then attempted to move on. The crowd continued and Sessions said “I heard that a long time over the last campaign.”
The White House has been under siege this week over suggestions that Obama era DOJ officials namely John Brennan should have their security clearance revoked. Last week the press narrative was that Trump was being soft on Vladimir Putin because Putin has something on the President.
It will be interesting to see if Jeff Sessions response was simply a nervous laughter or if he has indeed been building a stealth case against the true Russian collusion with Hillary Clinton and the Barack Hussein Obama administration.
