It would be great if the new AG appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the FBI's use of the dossier to spy on a political candidate.

Some of us are busy oppressing the peasants and have no time for watching long horseshit videos.

One other thing, perhaps now all those documents Rosenstein refused to hand over can be handed over before the Democrats take charge of the committee and quash the investigation.

It looks like Jeff got in one last swipe before he "retired."

Before he is ousted, Sessions limits U.S. oversight of local police
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice has moved to sharply curtail federal authority aimed at curtailing abuse and civil rights violations at local police departments across the country by directing U.S. attorneys to limit the use of consent decrees and settlement agreements.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in one of his final acts before President Donald Trump ousted him, said the Justice Department could investigate alleged legal violations but that "special caution" was required before resolving any disputes with states or local entities, the department said late Thursday.

Sessions has long opposed consent decrees between the Justice Department and police departments in cities such as Chicago and Baltimore to institute reforms, which were heavily utilized in the Obama administration, and sought to delay or overturn them.
It may turn out to be a good thing....

William Barr nominated by Donald Trump to be US attorney general
By replacing Jeff Sessions, who was fired by Mr Trump last month, the 68-year-old will take charge of the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
Technically ole Jeff resigned...but lets not quibble.
US media report he has been critical of some aspects of that inquiry.

A well-known conservative lawyer, Mr Barr held the role under President George H W Bush from 1991 to 1993.

The president called him a "highly respected lawyer" by both Republicans and Democrats and "a terrific man" while speaking to reporters on the White House South Lawn.

In the same statement, Mr Trump confirmed reports he is pushing for Heather Nauert to be the new US ambassador to the United Nations.
