Sessions never lied about anything. Franken was asking him about the Trump campaign regarding the Russians. Does the left really think that senators don’t talk to foreign dignitaries? Just what do they think the job of a senator is and what do they think senators are expected to do? Of course, as a senator, Sessions spoke with the Russian ambassador. Would the left expect him to refuse to talk to the ambassador? That would be inexcusable behavior and an insult to Russia. I believe those on the left schmooze everyone, foreign and domestic, for money. We on the right work and earn our money by building businesses and providing jobs. Of course, people running for election do attend fund raisers, but they aren’t seeking funds from foreign governments. That would be illegal, a concept the left doesn’t seem to relate to unless they are gunning for someone on the right.
We have election campaigns going on constantly. The left’s way of thinking would mean that no one in government could talk to any foreign dignitaries ever because at some point they might run for re-election and that would be considered collusion. Get a grip! Do you expect us to be total isolationists? Our government officials have to communicate with and show respect toward leaders of other nations. That doesn’t mean we are colluding with them. Do leftists still look for monsters under their beds, too? Talking with people doesn’t mean you get in bed with them. Well, if you’re a left wing nutcase who has no traditional moral values I suppose it may.
Where’s the same outrage toward Hillary for selling 20% of America’s uranium to the Russians? Where’s the same outrage toward both Bill and Hillary for taking tens of millions in “donations” for speeches (ahem) from nations that have proclaimed they want us dead? What about Obama’s statement to a Russian dignitary caught on a hot mic shortly before his re-election when he told the man to let Putin know he would be in a much better position to give Putin what he wanted after he won his re-election? The left doesn’t consider that collusion? But a senator talking to a diplomat from another country in the course of doing his job, not for donations of money, that’s got them all worked up? They have no way of knowing what the conversations were about. They assume the worst and then go about trying to prosecute and pillory the man on those assumptions just because they want it to be true. No facts, just emotion.
I can see where the left would leap to those conclusions because their own side does those things all the time, so they think everyone does. In reality, they are looking in a mirror, not through a window. They are attributing your own actions to others, not seeing what is really going on. They are not simply hammer heads. They are gold plated hammer heads with no concept of reality. Before casting stones at perceived enemies, they really need to do some background checks on the people they think are so pure on the left. Leftists have a real credibility problem and suffer from a dangerously high level of incompetency based on double standards.
