... and they better get their minds right, because this crap stops now! I'm sure the reader could read elsewhere (ZeroHedge comments would suffice) about how damn hypocritical it is for them to be wanting any US Attorney General to resign if the 2 racists Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch weren't fired. Jeff Sessions could hold a KKK rally on the Washington mall and that would not be a reason to fire him anymore.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joined many of his top Democrat Congressional peers including Nancy Pelosi, Elijah Cummins and Elizabeth Warren, in calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and be investigated by the DOJ’s inspector general to determine whether he compromised an investigation into Russian influence.
“It would be better for the country if he resigned,” Schumer told reporters. “You have to be above reproach,” he added.
Senator, nobody is above reproach, but you need more of an ass-kicking than any reproach, you gun-control freak!
Of note: Sessions was not actually asked whether he or anyone affiliated with the campaign had any kind of communication with the Russians, ever. He was asked, first, about “a continuing exchange of information” — repeated contacts between the campaign and representatives of the Russian government. In the full context of Franken’s remarks, Sessions was asked about the allegations in the dossier, and he denied such “communications” to the extent of his ability to do so.
Additionally, the WaPo adds that Sessions was asked by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) whether he had “been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day." Sessions answered, simply, “no.” And there is no evidence in the Post nor elsewhere to cast doubt on that claim.
In any case, semantics, and for now Democrats are happy to use this line of attack in hopes of repeating a Michael Flynn outcome, and oust Sessions.
As Politico adds, it wasn't just Democrats amping up the pressure. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said a special prosecutor should be appointed if investigators find any evidence of wrongdoing by the Trump campaign, adding that Sessions should recuse himself from any investigation into contacts between the campaign and Russia.
"I don't know that there's anything between the Trump campaign and the Russians. I'm not going to base my decision based on newspaper articles," Graham (R-S.C.) said during a CNN town hall where he appeared with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "If there is something there, and it goes up the chain of investigation, it is clear to me that Jeff Sessions, who is my dear friend, cannot make this decision about Trump."
It's Miss Lindsey and Juan McCain again - is there anybody left who still thinks the "R" next to a politician's name means he is on "our team"? I think I know what team Miss Lindsey is on, and I really doubt he is a "dear friend" of Mr. Sessions. They just may have called each other that when they were in the same Senator/Millionaires club together.
These commies are just so used to getting their way. They really don't care how ludicrous and hypocritical any move of theirs looks. That's because the LP has always been backing them, meaning exaggerating any story that is to be at the forefront of the news and minimizing anything that is to be buried. It ain't working this way anymore, Muchachos!
