Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended his integrity earlier on Tuesday by testifying in front of the US Senate and he called the suggestion about him colluding with Russia to be a detestable lie, while refusing to answer a number of questions with regard to his private conversations with President Trump.
The public hearing took more than two hours before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which investigates the alleged collusion between Russian spies/government officials and members of Donald Trump’s staff during the 2016 election cycle. After Jeff Session’s hearing, we are still unable (as usual) to find any shred of evidence as to the validity of mainstream media/Democrats’ wild claims and conspiracy theories about the alleged Russian interference.
Nonetheless, these hearings make for excellent political theater and that’s why we choose politicians to represents us, right? After all, politics is show-business for ugly people. Jeff Sessions started his “one man show” in an aggressive stance, saying that, let me quote:
“Let me state this clearly, colleagues, I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States, further I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign… any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”
“The very simple question that should be asked is ‘did Donald Trump or any of his associates in the campaign collude with Russia in hacking those emails and releasing them to the public.”
“That’s where we started six months ago. We’ve now heard from 6 of the 8 democrats on this committee and, to my knowledge, I don’t think a single one of them asked that question. They’ve gone down lots of other rabbit trails, but not that question.”
“Maybe, that is because Jim Comey said last week, as he’s said to Donald Trump, that on three occasions he assured him he was not under investigation. Maybe it’s because multiple democrats on this committee have stated that they’ve seen no evidence thus far, after six month of our investigation, and 11 months of an FBI investigation, of any such collusion.”
From a taxpayer’s point of view, I must admit the Russia narrative followed by endless Senate/Congress hearings is reality TV at its best. Super duper hype, we get all hot and bothered and at the end of the day, it’s a big juicy nothing burger! It’s time to un-recuse Sessions, fire Mueller and let Sessions investigate him, Comey, Lynch, Clinton and Obama.
