Tee Hee… Just Had A Delicious Thought As To Why Trump Was So Furious When…
Jeff Sessions Recused Himself as AG in matters regarding Russia…
“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” Comey told the House Intelligence Committee. “That includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”
So who is the acting AG in matters related to Russia ???
As per the recusal of Sessions on all matters pertaining to American presidential campaigns given revelations of communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 United States presidential election, Boente has been designated to perform the requisite functions of the attorneyship general with respect to the aforementioned matters, until a permanent deputy, such as current nominee Rod J. Rosenstein, is confirmed by the United States Senate.
And how did Boente come to this position…
In December 2012, Boente was appointed by United States Attorney General Eric Holder to serve as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, a position he held until September 2013. He became the Acting U.S. Attorney for EDVA by virtue of the Vacancy Reform Act on September 23, 2013, and served in that position until December 15, 2015. In this role, he was involved in the sentencing of former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell. He stated that, “No one is above the law… not a high public official, not even the highest public official [in Virginia].”
He was nominated by President Barack Obama on October 8, 2015, and confirmed by the United States Senate on December 15, 2015, as the 60th U.S. Attorney for the EDVA. He was appointed by President Donald Trump as Acting Attorney General on January 30, 2017, after Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was dismissed by Trump earlier that evening…Scuba, daleanime, jwirr and 1 otherPADemD like this
