Jeff Sessions Urges Congress to ‘Accept the Results’ of Mueller Report And Move On

Jeff Sessions Urges Congress to ‘Accept the Results’ of Mueller Report And Move OnFormer attorney general Sessions urged Congress, and the country at large, to "accept the results" of special counsel Robert Mueller's recently-released report and move on to other matters of governance during a speech at Amherst College on Wednesday.“I think it’s about time to accept the results, and let’s get on with the business of America,” Sessions said during a speech to the college Republicans, according to the New York Times.While Mueller failed to prove the underlying crime of coordination with the Kremllin, he did detail a number of instances in which Trump tried to curtail or otherwise affect the probe. Sessions cautioned Congress against pursuing their current agenda of further investigating whether the behavior attributed to President Trump in the Mueller report constitutes obstruction of justice.“The process was followed and a decision has now been rendered,” he said, adding that he had “the greatest confidence in the integrity of our system.”Sessions recused himself from the Mueller probe after it was revealed that he failed to report his meeting with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak, a decision that soured his relationship with President Trump, who repeatedly castigated him in public and private for failing to "protect" him from the investigation.The former Alabama senator's appearance on campus was met with vigorous protest: some 50 students and faculty stood up and walked out of the chapel where he was speaking as soon as he began to deliver his remarks, according to the Times. They then gathered outside the venue, holding and signs and chanting in opposition to the immigration policies Sessions pursued while serving in the Trump administration.Sessions, meanwhile, lamented the state of free speech on college campuses, where, he argued, conservatives are under siege.

UK won't accept Brexit deal that puts union at risk: PM's party chairman

UK won't accept Brexit deal that puts union at risk: PM's party chairmanBritain cannot accept an EU proposal to break the deadlock in the Brexit talks because it would threaten the unity of the United Kingdom by treating Northern Ireland differently, the chairman of the ruling Conservative Party said. The issue of how to maintain an open border on the island of Ireland is at the heart of the dispute between London and Brussels after British lawmakers objected to the so-called backstop insurance policy which they believe would keep the whole of the UK trapped in an EU customs union. Less than three weeks before Britain leaves the European Union, the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday Britain could have the unilateral right to leave their customs union after Brexit.
