Attorney General Jeff Sessions had every reason to be very upset with Senator Al Franken (D-MN) for the liberals insinuation that Sessions had colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign.
The reality is that the allegations being made by the Democrats are tantamount to treason. If true, the collusion with Russia would mean that some Republicans were willing to work with our political foe in an effort to win themselves personal power. It’s an ugly allegation, but it’s made even worse by the fact that the Democrats have NO EVIDENCE that this took place.
In fact, the only evidence we have of dealings between Russia and American politicians are all on the Democrats own side of the aisle.
The fact that the Democrats have no evidence of collusion, nor any evidence that anyone in the GOP did anything wrong in the 2016 campaign (or even any evidence that anyone did anything wrong during the campaign), hasn’t kept them from continuing to pretend that something nefarious took place. On Wednesday, Senator Al Franken (D-MN) continued the fraudulent line of attack by implying that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been a go-between for the Trump campaign in their efforts to collude with Russia.
Franken quickly learned that Sessions was not about to let himself be smeared with the ugly Democrat lies.
Al Franken: “Since you have qualified your denial to say that you did not ‘discuss issues with the campaign with Russians.’ What in your view constitutes issues of the campaign?”
AG Jeff Sessions: “Let me just say this without hesitation. I conducted no improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding a campaign or any other item facing the country. That’s been the suggestion that you’ve raised and others. That somehow, we had conversations that were improper.”
Al Franken: “I want to ask you some questions?”
AG Jeff Sessions: “No. Mr. Chairman, I don’t have to sit here and listen to his questions without having a chance to respond. Give me a break. The lead in to your question was very, very troubling […] You have now gone through this long talk that I believe is totally unfair to me.”
