Attack on Attny Gen Sessions Shows How Far Deep State and Obama Will Go to Destroy Trump
-By Warner Todd Huston
Thursday’s witch hunt against Trump’s U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions — once again over the media’s new favorite attack of pushing fake “Russia ties” — really shows just how far the media is willing to go to torpedo Donald Trump and to assist the weakling Democrat Party retake power in Washington D.C.
The morning’s witch hunt started with the Old Media establishment attacking Sessions for “lying” to Senator Al “Stuart Smalley” Franken about his meetings with Russian officials. After the media said Sessions “lied” to Franken about meeting Russian officials various and sundry Democrats then piled on alternately demanding that Sessions “recuse himself” from any investigations into the non-existent “hacking” of the election by the Russians and calling for him to “resign.” Then the media picked up on the Democrats empty bellicosity and started the cycle all over again.
Before we get to the other hypocrisies of the attack, we have to clear up this “lying to Franken” nonsense.
During his confirmation hearing for Attorney General, Minnesota Democrat Al Franken asked Senator Sessions if he spoke to the Russians about Donald Trump’s campaign.
Franken asked Sessions if he knew anything about “a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” Sessions replied saying, “I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.”
Clearly Franken was asking if Sessions talked to the Russians during the election as a “surrogate” working for Donald Trump. Sessions did not and there is no evidence he did.
