Selective Saturday

1a

Mixing up a mindless potion.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, one of the first members of the Republican establishment to ally himself with then-candidate Donald Trump, appeared on Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee. In his testimony, Sessions sought to staunch the increasingly rapid flow of embarrassing information from the Trump White House. The attorney general is near the center of multiple controversies dogging Trump. One is the firing of FBI Director James Comey, which Sessions recommended in a memo, for reasons that are still unclear. Another is contact between Sessions and Russian ambassador to Washington Sergei Kislyak, whom Sessions has variously claimed he did not meet with during the campaign, met with only twice, and now, perhaps, met with three times. The third alleged meeting with Kislyak, during a campaign event at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, was one of many important particulars that Sessions claimed he could not remember. He answered more than 20 questions with some version of “I don’t recall,” “I don’t recollect,” or “I don’t remember.”

Combined with last week’s testimony from Comey, today’s hearing crystallized the tenor of Washington under the Trump administration. Much of the government seems bogged down in litigating the Russia controversy and strange happenings in the Oval Office, where the half-life of presidential confidences has never been shorter. Today, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., insisted that on top of its Russia investigation, his committee was continuing to oversee the intelligence community’s $50 billion-plus budget and considering the renewal of major, controversial legal authorities for government surveillance. In public, however, not much aside from the Russia investigation is getting done.

    A sneaky little turd, rich boys’ hatchet man, anyone who complains to him gets fired, ie; Comey and Preet. Heavily invested in the private prison industry, no wonder he is calling for max sentences, he profits nicely. This guy really needs to go back to Alabama or jail, whichever comes first.

    Rich boy surrounds himself with slime like himself, claiming to “drain the swamp” when he just adds to it.

    Someone needs to take the nuke button away from his unstable ass!!

      Seems like they’re taking forever to yank him out of office, but it’s probably moving at a decent pace, considering how complicated the business of running this country is.

      Every day he goes down a bit. They’ll grind him down to nothing and he’ll be gone. Probably by resigning, like Nixon.
