IIRC, I said some months ago if anything positive comes from the Trump presidency, I'd acknowledge it. And we might have one small thing, via Jeff Sessions.

Search results.

Does this mean I think Sessions is good? No. Trump is good? No. That I think Sessions won't find a way to turn this into something unnecessary/bad? No.

In other words, who's idea was it? Even if not his, he'd have to approve it.

BTW, was this a slick way of saying sometimes a swamp can sometimes produce something good? Something other than gas?

Surprised nobody else has jumped in.

Nothing can produce odorous gas faster than a politician's mouth.

BTW swamps are the planets filters.

The owner, Eric Snyder, and an associate were charged with fraudulently billing insurance companies for more than $50 million for false treatment and urine tests over nearly five years, the authorities said.

Bruce Alan Zimet, a lawyer for Mr. Snyder, said that his client had been cooperating with investigators since 2014. “We anticipate having additional communications with the government,” Mr. Zimet said, “and we’re hopeful they’ll be listening carefully and evaluating whether this is a case that should go forward or not.”

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...

So, not really of Sessions' doing or remotely connected to being started by him?

A couple of paragraphs later in the same source is:

Mr. Sessions has emphasized cracking down on drug crime as a priority, directing the nation’s prosecutors in May to pursue the toughest charges for such crimes, even when they may carry mandatory minimum prison sentences.


While Sessions may not have started it, he is likely connected to the reasons you found it in the news recently.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that ...
