This story should put the final nail in the coffin of the ‘Jeff Sessions-Russia’ liberal narrative.
Liberals have been in full-bore freak out over the supposed ‘lie’ about the ‘meetings’ calling for the resignation of Sessions.
But here’s the kicker. The Obama administration is responsible for the first ‘meeting’ that Sessions had.
From Fox News:
So what are the two meetings that Sessions had? The first came at a conference on “Global Partners in Diplomacy,” where Sessions was the keynote speaker. Sponsored by the U.S. State Department, The Heritage Foundation, and several other organizations, it was held in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention.
The conference was an educational program for ambassadors invited by the Obama State Department to observe the convention. The Obama State Department handled all of the coordination with ambassadors and their staff, of which there were about 100 at the conference.
Here’s the meeting:
Apparently, after Sessions finished speaking, a small group of ambassadors—including the Russian ambassador—approached the senator as he left the stage and thanked him for his remarks. That’s the first “meeting.” And it’s hardly an occasion—much less a venue—in when a conspiracy to “interfere” with the November election could be hatched.
That’s a meeting?
According to Fox News, the second meeting was in his office, in his role as a member of the Armed Services Committee with committee staffers present in September 2016. His DOJ spokesperson, Sarah Isgur Flores, says they discussed relations between the two countries – not the election.
Obviously, the staffers must be agents too!
Have we exhausted this utter stupidity yet?
It takes an incredible amount of gall for Democrats to push this when the Obama administration was behind one of the meetings and when Obama is trying to push this whole Russia narrative.
