In sum, Sessions is a forgetful jackass who shouldn’t be attorney general and I hate myself for watching this Alabama doo doo bug dance around the truth. Well, I hate myself for watching everything minus this:
Jack Reed did a fine job of making Jeff Sessions sound stupid. Salute.
Notice that Sessions told Sen. Reed that he was sorry for interrupting him yet whined about Sen. Harris. I can only imagine what made that walking whites only water fountain more congenial to him than her.
Sen. Cornyn pretending to care about what James Comey did to Hillary Clinton is about as worthy a performance as Stacey Dash in anything she’s ever done.
Sen. John McCain, who felt compelled to admonish Sen. Harris during her time, isn’t even on this committee. I wish that fake maverick would retire already.
Once again, these old white men felt compelled to interrupt Sen. Harris’ questioning, trying to portray as angry and/or aggressive. Meanwhile, segregation now, segregation forever is the one getting testy and sassy.
“I’m not able to be rushed this fast. It makes me nervous.” Put Jeff Sessions in white rice.
Shorter Sen. Harris: Can you tell that I know how full of shit you are?
Sen. Tom Cotton is a high grade level of annoying with his mocking of the investigation by asking, “Do you like Jason Borne or James Bond movies?” But thankfully, it’s Kamala time.
“I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall.”
Bring on Kamala Harris already.
Sen. Lankford managed to not actually ask a question during his minutes of questioning. But you know, some of the kids live for a monologue. And ass kissing.
Sessions claims to have never received a detailed briefing on Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and never asked for one. Insert your “USA! USA! USA!” chant here.
Sen. King hates when you do not answer questions. To that end, Sessions just confirmed that 45 hasn’t asserted executive privilege. Let him tell it, though, “I am protecting the right of the president to assert it if he chooses.”
Sen. Blunt is behaving like he’s Sessions’ defense lawyer. Or his lover and his secretary, working every day of the week.
He could never, for the record.
If we played a drinking game based on the number of times Sessions said he didn’t remember or couldn’t recall something, we all would have died 45 mins ago.
Fed up Sen. Heinrich to Sessions: “You are obstructing a congressional investigation.”
Sessions to Lou Dobbs during the presidential campaign: “[Comey has] done what his duty is, I think. He’s got evidence to go forward now with further criminal investigation. He has no other responsibility than to follow that and then tell the American people what he’s doing.”
