|Pro-Confederate Attorney General Jeff Sessions will not resign. The pressure is on from Democrats and some Republicans.|
The squinty eyed bigot Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is staying on as the Attorney General of the United States for now. But as of today, he will not participate in the investigation of Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.
The Washington Post and New York Times released a bombshell that has him and fuhrer Donald J. Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner facing questions.
Today at a presser, Jeff Sessions recused himself from the federal investigation into Trump surrogates getting contact from Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador for the United States. Kislyak was concerned about the U.S. imposing stringent sanctions on the country. Trump's allies were trying to ease tension without conferencing with the Obama administration. That's considered a criminal act.
Sessions said that the accusations against him are false. He said that to calm the junk food media's concerns, he will step away from the investigations. He said that his staff and career officials urged him to step aside.
"I feel I should not be involved in investigating a campaign I had a role in," said Sessions.
Pressure is on for him to resign. He hasn't signaled any intention to leave (for now). Trump continues to have strong support for his AG.
Democrats are calling for his resignation. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are the Minority Leaders. They are publicly denouncing Trump, Sessions and their countless lies.
When confronted about the exchange between Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Sessions, he said that he wasn't trying to "lie under oath." He just didn't understand the question.
Oh, I happened to catch the softball's right wing carnival today. Sean "Softball" Hannity, America's most annoying conservative agitator is trying his darnedest to deflect from this "HUGE" scandal by rehashing the Obama years. He keeps on rehashing Obama's failed attempts at trying to reach out to Russia. He wants to continue to prosecution of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He keeps on thinking that Democrats are the ones pushing narratives about Trump and Russia. He ignored the numerous intelligence agencies that confirm that Russia's meddling was "alive and well."
He is the most predictable conservative in the junk food media. He tosses salad for Republicans.
He happened to bring up every Democrat who meet with the Russian ambassador to deflect from the real issue facing Trump, Sessions and Kushner.
