Watch: AG Jeff Sessions Laughs When High School Students Chant 'Lock Her Up!' - And Repeats the Mantra Himself

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday laughed when a group of high school students started chanting “lock her up,” repeating the phrase made famous by his boss, Donald Trump.


The 2016 presidential election was 19 months ago, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the video, which features the head of the United States’ Department of Justice gleefully absorbing a chorus of students demanding the extrajudicial arrest of Trump’s former opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has never been charged with a crime. She did, however, lose to Trump shortly after former FBI director James Comey made the unilateral decision to announce the FBI had reopened an investigation into her private email server just 11 days before the 2016 presidential election.

As the Intercept reported last week, part of the reason the FBI took so long to reopen the Clinton email investigation was because it was “so overwhelmed” with “suspected Trump-Russia ties.”

“It was Russia, Russia, Russia all the time,” Comey told the Inspector General, according to a 568-page report on the “various actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in advance of the 2016 election.”
