There definitely is a different standard for Democrats who ignore the offenses of their own fellow corrupt partisans while fabricating something out of nothing with the Trump admin…
There definitely is a different bar and attention paid to detail by Democrats when they’re engaged with their own fellow corrupt partisans and when they’re engaged with the members of the Trump administration.
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was notorious for word-parsing and giving incomplete responses or answers to questions that weren’t even asked in order to avoid telling the uncomfortable or implicating truth and nothing was said. They likewise pretend to be completely oblivious to what must be the obvious crimes of Hillary Clinton, given their ability to recognize contradictions, be they actual or fabricated.
In this instance, the most liberal globalist Democrat in the Senate, Al Franken (D-MN), spends almost fifteen minutes attempting to corner and berating Attorney General Jeff Sessions about statements he made during his confirmation hearings, statements that are now basically irrelevant beyond being potentially useful to discredit members of the Trump administration.
The testy exchange involves the response of then-Senator Sessions to a wandering, poorly framed question regarding whether or not he had personally had or was aware of any other discussions with any Russians by members of the Trump team regarding the Trump campaign. [VIDEO BELOW]
Sessions answered the question in the context in which it was asked and states that he did so honestly and in keeping with his high ethical standards. Franken attempts to monopolize the time, with long, rambling, accusatory questions and minimal time for a response.
To his credit AG Sessions does not allow Franken to get away with it and demands that he be afforded enough time to substantively respond. Senator Grassley does allow Sessions the time needed to fully respond to the accusations and insinuations of Franken, despite the Democrat’s complaining that allowing Sessions enough time to respond somehow unfairly impacts him and apparently his “right,” as a globalist Democrat, to berate witnesses without affording them the opportunity to offer a defense or a response.
There is a hint of the grit and determination from the Attorney General that we were familiar with when he was a member of the Senate, where he was unable to put it to use. In his current position, if he would allow the old Sessions to emerge, we might actually see reform at the Department of Justice, and the indictment and prosecution of Democrat criminals, such as Hillary Clinton, Hussein Obama, Loretta Lynch and James Comey. The list goes on.
Maybe this exchange will be the event that reminds Sessions of why he’s a member of the Trump administration and the nature of the enemy within that he swore an oath to fight in defense of our nation and its citizens. Maybe that realization and what appeared to be genuine anger that we saw will shake him out of his coma and into action.
There is real corruption at the DOJ he now heads as well as at the FBI. If he doesn’t clean it up and take on the big cases, he is in effect granting approval and is complicit and equally culpable. Winning a debate with Al Franken is meaningless. He needs to impanel grand juries, starting with one for Hillary Clinton. It’s up to him to perform or to President Trump to find someone who will and replace him.
