Is Jefferson Davis Sessions the Next to be Indicted…Perjury!

Looks like ol’ Jefferson Davis is looking at Perjury charges…

Sessions flat out lied.

That is a crime.

BUSTED: Evidence mounts that Jeff Sessions perjured himself under Al Franken questioning

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suddenly facing an active dilemma.

A guilty plea signed last month by one of his former Trump campaign underlings revealed this week shows he likely perjured himself during his confirmation hearing — and he doesn’t have a good option to wriggle out of it.

Sessions told Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) at the January hearing that he was “not aware” of evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government during the campaign, according to the New Republic.

He walked back those claims last month during another Senate hearing, telling Franken he “conducted no improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding the campaign or any other item facing this country.”

But court filings, and a new CNN report, show he was aware of evidence that at least one campaign associate was in contact with Russia.

George Papadopoulos, who served on the foreign policy advisory committee that Sessions oversaw, pleaded guilty Oct. 5 to lying to FBI agents in January and February.

The guilty plea Papadopoulos signed shows the campaign adviser communicated with Russians promising stolen campaign information on Hillary Clinton, and he tried repeatedly to set up meetings between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Papadopoulos told other committee members, and Trump himself, about his contacts with Russia during a March 31, 2016, meeting — and proposed arranging for the Republican candidate to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

According to a CNN report Wednesday, Trump “didn’t say yes and he didn’t say no.”

But Sessions, then an Alabama senator and chairman of his national security team, shut down the proposal, according to one person present for the meeting and confirmed by another source.

The guilty plea shows Papadopoulos continued trying to arrange a meeting between campaign officials and Russia until at least August 2016.

J.D. Gordon, a former Pentagon spokesman and Trump campaign national security adviser who attended the meeting, told CNN that Papadopoulos “obviously went to great lengths to go around me and Sen. Sessions.”

There’s no evidence at this point to contradict Gordon’s claim — but the new revelations still leave Sessions in a position where he’s damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t.

“The good news for Sessions is that he can plausibly claim to have opposed any Russian collusion,” writes the New Republic‘s Jeet Heer. “The bad news is that, in making those claims, he opens himself up to charges of perjury.”

White, Female Georgia Cop Fakes Getting Shot By Black Man

Yeah – you read that headline right. A white female Georgia Cop filed and Officer Shot report that a 6′ tall 230 lb black man had shot her.

And it was all fake.

GBI: Cop lied about being shot by black man

Cop shot, injured in Butts County

An officer shot. A bullet stopped by body armor. A 10-day chase for an unidentified shooter.

A newly hired Jackson police officer told a compelling story about what happened late the night of Sept. 13. After only three months on the job, Sherry Hall found herself immersed in a high-profile shooting, pitting a white officer against a black man. At least, that was her account of what happened.

But she made the whole thing up, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

On Friday, Hall was charged with four felonies, including evidence tampering and giving false statements to investigators.

After her account began to unravel over the past two weeks, investigators were left with little to conclude other than she shot herself, but officials stopped short of saying so Friday.

“Cops are humans and they make mistakes, but this is not a mistake,” Butts County Sheriff Gary Long said at a news conference. “This is criminal.”

GBI Special Agent Joe Wooten said Hall is on paid administrative leave after checking herself into a “private facility” to seek help.

“Upon release, she will be arrested,” Wooten said.

The tale Hall told her supervisors frightened the tiny community into thinking a suspect was on the loose in Butts County.

GBI officials interviewed Hall on three separate occasions, and each time she stuck to her story, Wooten said.

When she called out for help on her police radio, she described a 6-foot, 230-pound black man who took off after shooting her. He wore a green shirt and black jogging pants, Hall told GBI investigators.

She said the bullet struck her vest, which she credited with saving her life.

The man allegedly escaped and authorities put out a description for his arrest.

“There is no, and never was, a suspect shooter at large in Jackson,” Wooten said.

Hall’s account continued to come apart as investigators and law enforcement officials spent more than 600 hours examining the case, Wooten said.

At first, she said she failed to “engage her in-car video and audio,” so there was no evidence to back her up. But Wooten said the manufacturer helped recover digital forensic evidence that showed “inconsistencies.”

After Hall was again interviewed, she stopped cooperating with the GBI.

Video and audio recording evidence shows there were only two shots fired at the scene, while Hall said there were three, Jackson District Attorney Richard Milam said.

Hall also failed to tell investigators she had an extra handgun with her the night she was shot. It was found after officials executed a search warrant at her house earlier this week.

It’s “gut-wrenching to know one of your own has been harmed,” Police Chief James Morgan said, but he plans to move forward in prosecuting one of the department’s own for hurting the community with lies.

Likewise, Jackson Mayor Kay Pippin said she is “disappointed on so many levels” because of the lost manpower hours — and lost trust.

“For two weeks this incident has cast an image of the city of Jackson that does not reflect who we are,” Pippin said, calling Jackson a safe city where violent crime is a rarity.

The District Attorney said Hall wasn’t even on a police call at the time she reported being shot.

“The truth is the officer did something wrong,” Milam said. “She will be prosecuted and brought to justice.”

Texas Cops Attack Dad, Then Lie About Arrest to Charge Him

Next time you get into a discussion with one of those conservative anti BLM types…Show them this video. It is likely the only reason the Texas prosecutor threw the charges out is the victim this time was white.

Here is hoping Mr Faulkenberry has a decent lawyer, and he is the one collecting $800,000.

WATCH: Video clears man accused by Texas cops of assaulting them resulting in bail set at $800,000

A Texas man who had his hands up, only to be leg-whipped and thrown to the ground by sheriff’s deputies, said he escaped years in prison after a prosecutor threw out all the charges after viewing surveillance video of the incident.

In an interview with Ars Technica, Larry Faulkenberry, 47, said he told the deputies he had a camera that captured the events the evening of Jan. 14, 2015 when he was taken into custody and wrestled to the ground by three Caldwell County sheriff’s deputies.

“I knew the camera system was capturing everything the entire time. It knew everything that happened,” Faulkenberry explained. “I told him, ‘You just messed up. You have no idea how bad.’ He told me to ‘shut up.’”

The officers were dispatched to  Faulkenberry’s home after his 16-year-old son called in a false report that his father was drunk and waving a firearm because the teenager was mad that his dad had grounded him.

In the video, Faulkenberry can be seen with his hands up the entire time as the three officers surround him, with one suddenly leg-whipping him, driving him to the ground where all three can be seen piling on him.

According to the police report filed by Deputy Michael Taylor, “I observed Lawrence Faulkenberry push Sergeant Yost with the left side of his body and elbow into a tree causing him to fall and injure his left shin and right knee cap. I observed Lawrence Faulkenberry to forcefully resist Deputies while attempting to lawfully detain him for officer safety. Deputies detained Lawrence Faulkenberry using the least amount of force necessary to gain compliance from Lawrence Faulkenberry.”

The video showed nothing of the sort happened.

After seeing the video, Caldwell County District Attorney Fred Weber dropped charges against Faulkenberry who had already spent ten days in jail and was held on $807,000 bail.

“Without the video I would be in prison. There is no doubt about that,” Faulkenberry said.

Weber did not indicate whether the three officers would be prosecuted for filing a false report.

Sandra Bland Arresting Officer Fired for Perjury

Been a long time coming – but the officer who turned a simple traffic infraction into locking up Sandra Bland has been fired for lying about why he arrested her.

Texas formally fires trooper who arrested Sandra Bland

Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw has formally fired Brian Encinia, the trooper who arrested Sandra Bland, the agency announced Wednesday.

In the letter of final termination, McCraw said Tuesday: “I have carefully considered all the points raised by you in our meeting on February 5, 2016. I have determined that you have not rebutted the charges set out in the statement of charges of January 28, 2016. No cause has been presented to alter my preliminary decision. Therefore, it is now my decision that you be discharged from the Texas Department of Public Safety effective at 5:00 p.m., upon the date you receive this letter, pursuant to the authority vested in me by Section 411.007, Government Code.”

Encinia signed the letter Wednesday morning.

Encinia stopped Bland near the Prairie View A&M University campus on July 10, 2015 for failing to properly signal a lane change. After a heated argument, the trooper arrested Bland for assaulting a public servant. Bland was found hanged in her Waller County jail cell three days later. Her death has been ruled a suicide.

A Waller County grand jury indicted Encinia in January after concluding there was evidence he lied about the circumstances under which Bland exited her car. If convicted of the misdemeanor perjury charge, Encinia could face up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. His case will be heard in the 506th District Court in Waller County.

McCraw announced the day of the indictment that he would begin termination proceedings. Encinia has 15 days to appeal McCraw’s decision to the Public Safety Commission, which oversees DPS.

Encinia attorney Larkin Eakin Jr. said his client will appeal the director’s decision.
