Smooth as bourbon Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today proved why he is a good lawyer who would have made an excellent federal judge. Speaking before a Senate committee out to destroy President Trump, a friendly and calm Jeff Sessions politely submitted to their phony inquisition.

Now that is something I could never do. I would rant and rave. Not General Sessions.

From his opening statement:
Let me state this clearly: I have never met with or had any conversations with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign. I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, and the suggestion that I participated in any collusion or that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for over 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie.
The Russians are not coming.

Sessions just called Hillary Clinton, half the staff at CNN, most of the Democratic Senate, and the bulk of the Washington press corps the G-D liars they are.

They attacked his honor. With dignity, he defended himself.

He called out Al Franken:
Relatedly, there is the assertion that I did not answer Senator Franken’s question honestly at my confirmation hearing. That is false. This is how it happened. He asked me a rambling question that included dramatic, new allegations that the United States intelligence community had advised President-elect Trump that “there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.”
I was taken aback by these explosive allegations, which he said were being reported in breaking news that day. I wanted to refute immediately any suggestion that I was a part of such an activity. I replied, “Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn’t have – did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.”
That was the context in which I was asked the question, and in that context, my answer was a fair and correct response to the charge as I understood it. It simply did not occur to me to go further than the context of the question and list any conversations I may have had with Russians in routine situations, as I had with numerous other foreign officials.
He did well.

But that is not enough.

Sessions has done everything they asked.

He bowed out of the investigation.

He turned it over to his deputy, who incredibly is a Democrat.

He did nothing to stop appointment of a special prosecutor.

They will never be satisfied. They want to destroy Jeff Sessions. You cannot buy off these fascists. You cannot compromise with them.

They know inevitably they will return to power, and when they do, watch out America. They will torch the country, and replace its democratic republic with a caliphate if necessary -- anything to deny the people from ever again electing another Donald John Trump president.

I suggest Sessions hire a good lawyer just in case. They have nothing on him. That will just lull him into complacency.

By the way, this is an example of the quality of journalism today:






Hate the media? Love the Trump?
Read the best two books on the subject.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  2. If the Government's Other Party so botches things that they lose the elections, the Democrats might regain control of the congress, but the balloon will have gone up by the swearing in.

  6. Before the committee begins asking stupid questions do the Dems get together and draw straws to see who will be required to be the biggest A..hole of the hearing? It's a close call between Wyden, Harris, Heinrich, and King. On the other hand, Tom Cotton had the best moments of the whole hearing

  7. Giving the democrats what they want just to show what a good guy you are is not only a weakness, it's just feeding the bear. We know they bear is never satisfied and always comes back for more, and more, and more. Well done, Mr. Sessions. That southern drawl is quite the time-killer when you're a democrat questioner on the clock. Didn't rattle him for even a second.

  8. CNN (as if anyone cares) is still on about how only the Republicans cut off Kamala Harris. Well, they did so rightly: she wouldn't even let him answer her questions, interrupting rudely to "object" or ask another question even as he was trying to answer.

    I just hope libs understand something: as they re-write the rules of conduct, it's going to be used against them, next time there's a Democrat in the White House.

    It's not that we're vindictive. THEY are.

    1. What he should have done was ask her to write out all her questions, so that he could answer them in order. I'd bet they'd be ungrammatical and badly spelled, and he could have fun asking her what it is she's trying to ask him.

  10. So much for the characterization of him, pushed by the worthless Libertarians, as Henry Gibson.
