Klayman: Sessions 'Little Mouse' Afraid of Being Branded Racist

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is so afraid of being tagged a racist he might pull his punches in the Justice Department's probe of the deadly white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Larry Klayman told Newsmax TV.

"The attorney general, who's a very nice man . . . has been called a racist unfairly," Klayman, founder of the government watchdog sites Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, told Newsmax's J.D. Hayworth on Wednesday. "Everybody in this country that challenges the left, that challenges Black Lives Matter, that challenges Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, and the rest of these vigilantes, is called a racist. So, he's very reflexive.

"Now yes, there should be a Justice Department investigation of what happened at Charlottesville and the neo-Nazis and the white supremacists, one of which killed this young lady very tragically. But there should also be an investigation of what the left did there. This group called Antifa . . . is a radical, leftist, fascist group which also engaged in violence."

Sessions told NBC News on Wednesday the driver of a car that hit counter protesters and killed one person at the Saturday rally might face federal hate crime charges.

"It very well could be a civil rights violation or a hate crime, and there might be other charges that could be brought," Sessions said. "We are working it intensely on the assumption we may might want to prosecute him."

And he told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday the violence at the rally "does meet the definition of domestic terrorism in our statute."

As a U.S attorney in 1986, Sessions faced allegations of racially charged remarks that cost him a federal judgeship.

Klayman, a former federal prosecutor, said Sessions "needs to man up and do his job as attorney general, but frankly he's just rolling over because of the criticism that he's a so-called racist which he's not.

"We have an attorney general who has effectively neutered himself . . . he's so afraid," Klayman said. "He's like a little mouse right now. He's doing stuff with immigration. He's dealing with sanctuary cities. That's good, but beyond that he's inert. And he's afraid of his own future."
