Let's do this. This one is going to be much more partisan than the coney hearing.

I'm not going to watch some knuckle-draggin' racist fillibuster every question just so the sexual predator can claim to be "vindicated" by the mainstream media later.

however, I'm sure it'll be riveting. Enjoy -  Rolling Eyes

First major screw up. Says that just because he recused himself from the Russia investigation didn't mean he shouldn't be involved in the firing of Comey. (Even though the firing was about the Russia investigation).

I've never felt like Sessions is a big fish in this thing. But there's something there.

Won't say whether he knew there was a decision made about Comey firing before he wrote is recommendation to fire. Chicken or egg? My read: trump told him to justify what he was already going to do. And told him to find something other than the Russia thing which it really was about.

Convoluted answer about executive communications. Can't say anything about what the president and I talk about. But I will happily tell you about recommendations I made tot he president in writing. He's invoking executive privilege.

They're zeroing in on the point. The president decided to fire Comey for the Russia investigation. Told the AG to come up with an excuse, they did. Then the president went on tv and blew it all to hell.

He's basically invoking executive privilege on his own.

Interesting strategy.

he's saying that he can't invoke executive privilege, the president has not asserted executive privilege, or told him not to testify, or instructed him on what to testify about, AND YET he chooses not to discuss conversations that he's had with the president on the OFF CHANCE that the president MIGHT invoke some privilege in the future. What the hell is going on?


And he just said "executive privilege is not waived in private session".

Remember he just said earlier that he's not invoking executive privilege.

The pubes are now trying to prove FOR Sessions that the letter stating that the reasons for firing comey were because of Clinton (which republicans were singing to the holy hosts for - and may have been the thing that pushed him over the edge to winning).

Now having his own words praising comey after the Clinton disclosures thrown in his face. Spoiler alert: he loved it.

What a complete shit show that again answers nothing definitively and proves why we need leaks. The entire admin is in "keep your head down, don't answer questions and this will EVENTUALLY blow over" mode.

Predicted GOP response: Sessions dinnit do nuthin.

Yes, yes it is. But let's spend billions investigating bullshit to placate the Dem base. It's not like we have anything else to spend it on.

Billions?  Are we at billions yet?  I mean BENGHAZI lasted 2 years and it was only 7 million.  They must REALLY be investigating SO HARD.

Sell out the country to stop abortion regardless what it costs.

Sessions' testifying could have been mistaken for an Aricept ad. He couldn't recall shit.

I'm sorry that you're able to remember things that didn't happen. Sessions doesn't seem to have that skill.

Exactly. Because his favorite answer was "I don't recall"
