Attorney General Sessions’s Recusal Was Unnecessary

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I have argued that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s recusal from the so-called Russia investigation was a mistake. The attorney general’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday afternoon bolstered this conclusion. The probe of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign is not a criminal investigation or prosecution.

Another Pointless Russia Hearing

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The questioning was so straining, empty, and cheap I expected one of the Democrats to ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Have you ever, while flipping cable channels at home or at the office, stopped on Russia Television? If so, which programs did you watch and why? Could you give the dates on which you watched RT and the duration of the viewing?

Jeff Sessions takes the gloves off

In Tuesday’s testimony, Mr. Sessions excoriated — in a voice that appeared quavering with anger at times — those who are knowingly distorting plain and simple events into this vast web of conspiracy. “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,” he said, looking sharply at the senators he worked alongside for the past two decades.

Democrats Playing Dumb On Executive Privilege

Yesterday, Democrats were playing dumb to gain a political advantage, and Attorney General Sessions shot them down in the clearest and politest terms possible.

What You Need to Know Before Sessions Testifies at the Senate Intelligence Committee Today

As you watch Sessions today, remember that he wanted to appear in an open forum rather than behind closed doors. This is the behavior of a man who wants to clear his name and not the actions of a man who is trying to hide sketchy allegiances. The Democrats and the media are desperate for material, material they can obsess about on the cable stations and the news and material they can misrepresent to the voters to gain an electoral advantage.

AG Sessions Before The Senate Intelligence Committee: It’s A Hearing About Nothing

Today’s hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee featuring former Senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions should be the last time the government of the United States allows itself to be manipulated into responding to the lies and provocations of James Comey.

Sessions To Testify About Comey Before Senate Intelligence Committee

Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia probe in March, had been scheduled to testify before the Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees next week. But in letters to the chairmen of those panels, Sessions says he has instead accepted an invitation to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

DOJ Says Comey Wasn’t Honest In Senate Hearing

Alex Pfeiffer, Daily Caller

Comey testified that when he told Sessions that he should prevent any “future direct communication between the President and me,” the attorney general didn’t reply. The DOJ said in a statement, “The Attorney General was not silent; he responded to this comment by saying that the FBI and Department of Justice needed to be careful about following appropriate policies regarding contacts with the White House.”

Judicial Watch: Newly Released Emails Reveal More Clinton Corruption And Security Failures

Our friends at Judicial Watch have released another 2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server.

Don't Do It Donald

Choosing Democrat turned Independent Senator Joe Lieberman to head the FBI would empower President Trump’s fiercest enemies in the Republican Party and do nothing to get Democrats off his back.

Conservatives Who Supported Trump Being Systematically Excluded From Trump Administration

What I have observed and heard since the inauguration leaves me concerned that many cultural conservatives who put their credibility on the line to give their post-primary support to Donald Trump and gave their time, money and expertise during the general election campaign are now being systematically excluded from the Trump administration.
