After a smear campaign by leftist Democrats, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigations into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Shockingly, some members of the GOP Establishment added their two cents on the drama, and gleefully kicked the AG while he was down.
Some congressional Republicans were quick to agree Thursday with Democrats calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, following leaks and media reports that Sessions met with Moscow’s ambassador twice last year.
So after a resounding presidential win, along with dozens of congressional victories, the Stupid Party is still stuck on stupid. The offenders consisted of the usual suspects.
Nevertheless, a number of Republicans were quick to give in to the media narrative. During a town hall with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on CNN Wednesday evening, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) said that if Sessions had spoken with the Russian ambassador, “then for sure you need a special prosecutor.”
“AG Sessions should clarify his testimony and recuse himself,” House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) tweeted early on Thursday.
“I think, the trust of the American people, you recuse yourself in these situations,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday morning. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) joined in during an appearance on NPR on Thursday morning.
Isn’t it interesting these despicable piles of dung trashed Sessions on uber-liberal outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and NPR? These jackasses feel comfortable there because they share the same ideology. Rubio, in particular, enrages me because he portrays himself as a stalwart of conservatism, when if fact he is nothing but an MSM lickspittle.
F**k these people sideways. I’d respect them more if they changed parties.
