Sessions: “I Have no Reason to Doubt” Moore Accusers

SAYS DOJ WILL “DO ITS DUTY” IF FORMER JUDGE WINS SPECIAL ELECTION

by Sharon Rondeau

(Nov. 14, 2017) — Under cryptic questioning by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that he “has no reason to doubt” the accounts of five women who have accused U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of actions ranging from purchasing liquor when one of them was underage to violent sexual assault.

Jackson Lee then asked Sessions if an investigation of the claims would be conducted by the Justice Department if Moore is elected next month and seated.

In response, Sessions said that the matter would normally be one handled at the state level.  When pressed, Sessions said that the DOJ would “do its duty.”

Perhaps even more than her previous Democrat committee members, Jackson Lee fired off her queries in a military-style series while demanding that Sessions answer “yes” or “no” because of her limited time.

While asking about the Moore accusations, Jackson Lee held up their photos as released in the press.

Moore is seeking the Senate seat vacated by Sessions when he was confirmed as attorney general in February by that body as is constitutionally required.

On Monday evening, following a press conference held by the fifth accuser and high-profile California attorney Gloria Allred, some reports suggested that a campaign for Sessions to seek the Alabama Senate seat through a write-in effort was under way among some Republicans.

Former U.S. Attorney Douglas Jones is the Democrat facing Moore in the December 12 special election.

Moore has denied the claims, and his wife Kayla has suggested that evidence exists that the women were rewarded financially for making them.  Both have pledged to file a lawsuit against The Washington Post, which presented the stories of the first four women.

    Sessions should have “no reason to doubt” Moore either. The accusers have not proven their charges and Moore, like any other American citizen is presumed innocent until proven guilty. That is for a court of law and a jury to decide and not Sessions. In addition, the ENTIRE onus is on Moore’s accusers to prove their allegations.

    Marlene is correct that, if Moore wins, then the Senate must seat him. (I don’t know what the DOJ or Obama (who has been out of office for nearly 10 months) has anything to do with this.)

    The more interesting question is whether two-thirds of the Senate would vote to expel Moore (if he wins).

    Despite the outright lies of the corrupt DOJ, the Senate has no choice but to seat Judge Moore when he wins. And obama’s DOJ knows this.

    I have EVERY reason to doubt Sessions. He’s a RINO traitor!

    I meant Sessions testified that he “had no reason not to believe” Roy Moore’s accusers. Sorry for my mistake/misquote. Tom Arnold.

    Sessions testified he “had no reason to believe his (Roy Moore’s) accusers.”
    DOES THIS SOUND LIKE “JUMPING THE GUN?”
    How about, AG Sessions, that you “have no reason NOT to believe” Roy Moore (a man with many positive credentials and a conservative who respects and follows our Founding Fathers’ constitution- not to mention the Holy Bible- even if he might have been impure 40 some years ago)?
    Allow me to list just a few MORE CONTEMPORARY sexual predators (a step of above sexually harassing): BILL CLINTON, BOB MENENDEZ, JOHN KENNEDY (an adulterer), HARVEY WEINSTEIN, BILL COSBY, “BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA” (our first GAY ARAB-AMERICAN president who, by his guile and sick criminal psyche, had homosexual sex with numerous other individuals who may or MAY NOT have wanted it- and, for that matter, who MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE survived it, ETC, ETC.
    A quote from the Lord’s Prayer- “FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE TRESPASSED AGAINST US.”
    So, what the Hell is wrong today with our Federal Government which seems to spend by far more time investigating persons than making laws and running the government daily and bipartisan as We, The People, elected them to do and hoped that they would do?

    Lynch law trial by MSM and Congress.

    He did not say he believed them either.
    I will say I do not believe them.
