If perhaps you were wondering whether or not Attorney General Jeff Sessions committed perjury during his confirmation hearings, we now have an “expert” who assures us he didn’t.
On the always vacuous Fox and Friends, the hosts weighed in on the Sessions matter, and in doing so proved that your average titmouse has a higher IQ than the dimbulbs who minister to the braindead right-wing zombies each and every morning.
Brian Kilmeade began the idiocy by remarking:
“Al Franken had a tortured, circuitous question.”
His equally moronic co-host, Steve Doocy, agreed:
“It was a very long question.”
Then Kilmeade decided he’d go ahead and play defense attorney for the Attorney General, saying:
“There’s an excellent chance that [Sessions] didn’t even — because nothing happened significantly — he didn’t even remember about the Heritage Foundation incident or this ambassador came through.”
Doocy repeated his line from earlier, and then expounded, proving his total ignorance:
“Well, it was — to his credit, it was a crazy question, a very long question.
“He certainly did not perjure himself. Everybody agrees on that. But nonetheless, the Democrats are saying, ‘OK, he’s got to recuse himself. Oh, he did that? All right. Now he’s got to resign.’ He is not going to resign over this.”
Everyone agrees he didn’t perjure himself? Actually at least 100 members of Congress and numerous legal experts have said Sessions did indeed commit perjury and should resign immediately. Where did Kilmeade and Doocy get their law degrees? Actually, they aren’t attorneys, and quite frankly it’s a wonder they made it through preschool.
For the record, let’s take a look at the “crazy” question Senator Al Franken asked Sessions:
“These documents also allegedly stated, quote, there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries from the Russian government. Now, again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so, you know. But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?”
That’s a very clear and straightforward query, don’t you agree? But if you know you’ve done something questionable and need to hide it, or you work for Fox News and have your nose stuck up every Republican ass offered for inspection, then I can see how you might need a few extra minutes to ponder your reply.
Sessions is a liar and a traitor. So is his boss. They both need to go, ASAP.
