Crap. I may have to stop calling him EpiPen Joe if this keeps up.
The attempt by the Obama Administration In Exile to portray Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a traitor for talking to the Russians is supported by CNN, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post. Each entity posted a Fake News attack today.
This shows we do not have a free press.
We have one still beholden to President Obama.
Several senators pounced on this story, only to have been found to have bragged in the past about meeting with -- you guessed it -- the Russian
Democratic Senator Clair McCaskill of Missouri is the most loathsome member of this bunch.
CNN booked Manchin, hoping to have a Trump-friendly Democrat turn his back on Sessions and Trump.
Manchin: ‘I’ve Met With’ The Russian Ambassador — ‘We Meet With All The Ambassadors’ [VIDEO] https://t.co/2zqpBvdNoq pic.twitter.com/NZY3zPvwGq— The Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) March 2, 2017
From the Washington Free Beacon:
"Have you met with the Russian ambassador in your capacity?" she asked.
Manchin said that he not only met with the ambassador, but did so with a group of senators.
"I have," Manchin said. "I have met with the Russian ambassador with a group in my capacity, with a group of other senators."
He explained that lawmakers try to meet with all foreign ambassadors in Washington at some point to try to build relationships with them and discuss pertinent issues.
"Yes, that happens," he said. "We meet with all the ambassadors, or try to anyway, to build the relationships that you can to have some [inaudible] whatsoever, and that we can basically talk and have some type of interactions back and forth and know where in the world people are coming from."
He stressed that meeting with ambassadors is "not unusual."
"So, that's not unusual," Manchin said. "That's not unusual."So the scandal is that anyone in Washington is pretending to be scandalized.
I have never voted for Joe. Not for secretary of state. Not for governor. Not for senator. He's Oh for Five.
He just made it harder to Say No to Joe next year.
Meanwhile, I am tracking down a rumor that John Quincy Adams talked to Russians when he was ambassador to Russia from 1809 to 1814. James Buchanan too!
