Attorney General Jeff Sessions is accused of making false statements during his confirmation hearing regarding statements about meeting with Russia prior to the 2016 election. For most Democrats however, the incident is more about perception than fact. They hope the mere appearance of wrongdoing takes precedence over the facts.
Sessions is accused of meeting with a Russian Ambassador to specifically discuss campaign issues prior to the election of President Trump. He is also accused of lying about these two meetings during his AG confirmation hearing.
“I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign,” Sessions said Thursday.
Sessions said he believed that Franken’s question related to that topic, which was in the news at the time, and was not meant to encompass any and all contacts with the Russians.
“My reply to the question of Sen. Franken was honest and correct as I understood at the time,” he said.
Sessions said the September meeting covered a range of topics and that he did not remember all of them. But he recalled that the meeting grew testy over the subject of Russian aggression in Ukraine and that he declined an invitation for a follow-up lunch.
“Sessions’ spokesperson at the Department of Justice, Sarah Isgur Flores, says his answer in January was truthful because he was asked about “the Trump campaign, not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee.” She added that “there was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer,” during the confirmation process, noting that he had over 25 conversations with ambassadors as a member of the Armed Services Committee.”
This statement is being taken out of context and misrepresented to cast doubt on the Trump administration.
Predictably, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and other Democrats self-appointed leaders of this modern day Salem Witch Trials have immediately called for Sessions’ resignation without any investigation or evidence.
It seems the Democrats have no insight at all into their own party.
Democrats just elected ethics challenged Tom Perez as the Democratic National Committee Chair. They also appointed known anti-semite Keith Ellison as the Deputy Chair.
The Democrats had nothing to say when then-AG Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton for a private meeting. This was during an active investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. No resignations, no recusement.
Claire McCaskill (D-MO) blasted Sessions for his meeting while stating she “never” has had to meet with the Russians in the past. Apparently forgetting that not only did she meet with the Russians, she tweeted about it.
McCaskill’s lack of recall should be treated with the same level of understanding and compassion she is affording Sessions. Resignation McCaskill?
This is only about power.
The hypersensitive reaction by the hypocritical left only furthers my theory that Democrats no longer care about this country. Democrats want to inhibit America’s ability to function as a super power, and have forgotten the people they serve. The Democrats’ only plan thus far has to been to regain the power they lost. And the Democrats will do this at any expense, including Democracy.
AG Sessions has recused himself from all investigations into the Russia campaign concerns. While many feel Sessions did not need to recuse himself, his recusal only serves to elevate his status as a man of integrity.
American citizens, now you know what the next four to eight years hold. Literal witch hunts on every turn. Like the accusers in the original Salem trials, Warren, Pelosi, et al. are hallucinating and delusional in regards to what the American people expect.
Citizens, remember this. Remember how the Democrats did everything they could to disrupt policies to improve your healthcare, your income, your ability to work. Know that the destruction of a man of integrity is acceptable the to Democratic party in order to regain their own power. Know that this childish, ridiculous behavior is not going to stop until you hold them accountable.
Do not be fooled by this latest self-serving, Democrat generated “scandal.” Remember this in the 2018 elections. Remind the Democrats who they serve, for now.
