|Damn, I hate these committee hearings.|
When Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III appeared today at a Senate Intelligence Briefing on Russia, the squinty eyed bigot was stonewalling. He was trying invoking his executive privilege without saying he was dong so.
The testimony lasted about a three hours and the Democrats and Republicans were using their usual gotcha moments. Notably the fact that Sessions was hammered for not acknowledging James Comey's concerns about being alone with Donald J. Trump.
Trump's key man on the law enforcement is facing controversy over his failure to disclose his meetings with Russian diplomats.
When asked about Trump potentially firing Robert Mueller out the cannon in the special investigation probe, Sessions said "I have no recognition."
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) also made the news. He completely went into a tangent about how Hillary Clinton managed to escape criminal conviction.
Let it be known, that Sessions was under oath. And yet, he can't explain how his boss got in touch with Russians. He couldn't ever answer why the DNC was hacked. He won't even acknowledge when he meet the diplomats.
Sessions might as well of skipped the testimony.
Also the Senate Rules Committee is trying to crack down on reporters in the Capitol.
The junk food media blasted Republicans for trying to run away from the Russian investigation and their "secret" bill to replace the Affordable Care Act.
|Republicans continue to disrespect Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). The senator vows to keep pressure on Republicans and Trump's lackeys.|
Also Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was interrupted by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). This also gone viral because Harris who is a potential candidate for 2020 is being undermined by Republicans. The last time this happened was committee chair Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) trying to stop her when she pressed Rod Rosenstein, the second banana to Sessions.
