SESSIONS scores big again: Takes down Crips gang banger

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has the Department of Justice humming along nicely. The former senator from Alabama, and staunch Trump supporter, has been chalking up a number of impressive press releases worthy of praise and thanks from all Americans.

Today, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued its hot streak by announcing the sentencing of a very dangerous gang member, Dionte Dortch, aka “Killa Tay,” 24, of Omaha, Nebraska, who is described as a violent member of the Crips gang.

Dortch was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison and three years of supervised release for participating in a racketeering conspiracy involving multiple acts of violence, including murder, attempted murder, assaults, witness tampering and drug distribution. The announcement was made by Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco of the Justice Department’s criminal division and Acting U.S. Attorney Robert C. Stuart of the District of Nebraska.

Despite the president’s constant criticism of Sessions for his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, and for his lack of attention to Hillary Clinton’s wrongdoings of the past, Sessions continues to move forward in rebuilding a Justice Department that lost all credibility under the Obama administration.

The president continued with his criticisms of Sessions Wednesday morning by launching a two-part tweet slamming Sessions (see tweets by clicking here) for not replacing acting FBI director Andrew McCabe.

What has some people in D.C. questioning the tweet is Trump’s own failure to quickly find a replacement for James Comey, who he had fired earlier in the year. Trump interviewed numerous candidates over the course of a month, including former VP candidate Joe Liberman, but came up short each time. Many of the candidates on Trump’s short list removed themselves from consideration. Eventually, Christopher Wray was confirmed as FBI director on July 20.

Here is the full release from the DOJ regarding the Crips gang member:

Crips Gang Member Sentenced to 20 Years for Racketeering Conspiracy in Nebraska

A violent member of the Crips gang was sentenced today to 20 years in prison and three years of supervised release for participating in a racketeering conspiracy involving multiple acts of violence, including murder, attempted murder, assaults, witness tampering and drug distribution, announced Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Blanco of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Acting U.S. Attorney Robert C. Stuart of the District of Nebraska. 

Dionte Dortch, aka “Killa Tay,” 24, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Joseph F. Bataillon after he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to participate in racketeering activity, one count of witness tampering, one count of attempted obstruction of justice and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. 

According to the plea agreement, Dortch admitted that he was a member of the Omaha-area chapter of the Crips known as the “40th Avenue Crips” and “44th Avenue Crips,” and that he personally committed acts of violence for the gang in furtherance of the racketeering conspiracy. According to the plea, these acts of violence included an attempt to hire a hitman to kill a potential witness against him at trial in this case, shooting at a vehicle occupied by four individuals and using threats of violence to prevent a witness from testifying before a federal grand jury.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Omaha Police Department are investigating the case. Trial Attorney John S. Han of the Criminal Division’s Organized Crime and Gang Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Molsen of the District of Nebraska are prosecuting the case.
