AG Sessions Blasts Russian Collusion Accusations As “Appalling And Detestable Lie”

After yet another 2+ hour public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on alleged collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian spies, we are still no closer to anyone providing a shred of evidence as to the validity of such claims despite Democrats and the mainstream media dedicating pretty much every waking moment to the express pursuit such evidence.  That said, it all makes for great political theater and below are the highlights from today’s episode of the continuing insanity.

Sessions set an aggressive tone for the hearing by preemptively stating during his opening remarks that “any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”

“Let me state this clearly, colleagues, I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States, further I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign… any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”

But perhaps no one did a better job of thoroughly dismantling the “Russian collusion” narrative than Senator Tom Cotton who pointed out, as have we on multiple occasions, that no one, including James Comey, has seen a single shred of evidence to suggest that Trump or any of his associates colluded with Russian spies to steal emails from Hillary Clinton or the DNC and/or to generally stage a coup in the United States. 

“The very simple question that should be asked is ‘did Donald Trump or any of his associates in the campaign collude with Russia in hacking those emails and releasing them to the public.” 

“That’s where we started six months ago.  We’ve now heard from 6 of the 8 democrats on this committee and, to my knowledge, I don’t think a single one of them asked that question. They’ve gone down lots of other rabbit trails, but not that question.”

“Maybe, that is because Jim Comey said last week, as he’s said to Donald Trump, that on three occasions he assured him he was not under investigation.  Maybe it’s because multiple democrats on this committee have stated that they’ve seen no evidence thus far, after six month of our investigation, and 11 months of an FBI investigation, of any such collusion.”

Cotton went on to compare the efforts that would have to be undertaken by the Trump administration to pull off the conspiracy alleged by the Left and mainstream media to a Jason Bourne movie.

Sessions did get testy with Senator Wyden at one point when questioned about Comey’s testimony last week that he expected Sessions to recuse himself earlier than he ultimately did.  Those suggestions by Comey have since resulted in wild media speculation over whether Comey was in possession of undisclosed information that would link Sessions directly to the Russian interference investigation.

Senator Heinrich accuses Sessions of “impeding this investigation” by refusing to discuss the details of conversations he may or may not have had with the President.

On the Comey firing, Sessions called Comey’s handling of the Clinton email case a “usurpation” of Justice Department authority.  He said he was involved in Comey’s firing because he oversees the FBI. Sessions added that, “to suggest that a recusal from a single specific investigation” would render him unable to manage the leadership of the FBI would be “absurd.”

Sessions said Comey’s decision to announce the results of the investigation without Justice Department approval was “a stunning development” because “the FBI is the investigative team. They don’t decide prosecution.”

He called Comey’s move “a thunderous thing” and it caused him to conclude “that a fresh start was appropriate.”

On whether he lingered outside the oval office while President Trump spoke to Comey alone because he thought it was inappropriate:

Didn’t seem to me to be a major problem….I knew Comey…could handle himself well.”

On Comey expressing concerns regarding 1-on-1 conversations with the President:

“I believe it was the next day that he expressed concern about being left alone with the President.  That in itself is not problematic.  He did not tell me, at that time, any details about anything that was said that was improper.”

“I affirmed his concern that we should be following the proper guidelines of the Department of Justice and basically backed him up in his concerns and that he should not carry on any conversations with the President, or anyone else, about an investigation in a way that was not proper.”

After initially saying he did not recall any meetings with Kislyak at the Mayflower Hotel, Sessions later hedged saying it’s ‘conceivable’ they exchanged words though he did not recall it.
