APPARENTLY TRUMP'S ATTORNEY GENERAL ISN'T QUITE UP TO SPEED ABOUT THE FUNCTION OF THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY GENERAL


AG Sessions says he's 'amazed' a judge 'on an island in the Pacific' can block Trump's immigration order

Story highlights

  • "I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power," he added.
  • "The judges don't get to psychoanalyze the President to see if the order he issues is lawful," Sessions said.
(CNN)Attorney General Jeff Sessions said this week he was amazed that a judge in Hawaii could block President Donald Trump's executive order halting immigration from several majority Muslim countries.
Sessions made the comments in an interview with "The Mark Levin Show" Tuesday evening that was put online Wednesday.
"We've got cases moving in the very, very liberal Ninth Circuit, who, they've been hostile to the order," Sessions said. "We won a case in Virginia recently that was a nicely-written order that just demolished, I thought, all the arguments that some of the other people have been making. We are confident that the President will prevail on appeal and particularly in the Supreme Court, if not the Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter. I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the President of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power."
    Last month, a federal judge in Hawaii, Judge Derrick Watson, issued an order that blocked Trump's ban on travelers from several Muslim-majority countries. The Department of Justice is currently appealing the decision.
    In tweets on Thursday, both Senators from Hawaii responded to Sessions' comments.
    Sessions also added that judges shouldn't "psychoanalyze" Trump when he was asked about potential judges Trump would appoint.
    "I think our President, having seen some of these really weird interpretations of the executive orders that he's put out, I think he's more understanding now that we need judges who follow the law, not make law," Sessions said.
    "The judges don't get to psychoanalyze the President to see if the order he issues is lawful. It's either lawful or it's not. I think that it will be real important for America to have judges in the model of Judge (Neil) Gorsuch and (the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin) Scalia, people who serve under the law, under the Constitution, not above it, and they are faithful to the law. They honor it and don't try to remake it as they'd like it to be."

    NOTE:  I find his comments extraordinary.  Sure, let him complain in privates about the liberal Ninth Circuit as I'm sure Eric Holder complained about the conservative Fifth Circuit Court.  I'd bet my entire 401(K) on this one.  But to make a public statement about the alleged bias of a Circuit Court is unprecedented.  Is it that Sessions is so lacking in knowledge about how our court system works?  Or is it that like the Klown who appointed him, he's just trying to undermine the court system?  I won't bet on either since both are rather frightening prospects to consider.
    Well Have A Great Rest Of Your Day! 

    PS: Just in case you were wondering as I was.  Sessions made his comments during an interview on the Mark Levin radio show.  Mark is an attorney who has made frequent guest appearances on Rush Limbaugh's radio screed and the ever objective and always "Fair and Balanced" Sean Hannity Show on Fox News.    No big surprise I'm sorry to say.
