BREAKING NEWS: EMERGING SENATE SCANDAL
Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer's career may be jeopardy. Evidence has recently surfaced that the powerful New York politician once shared a donut with a Russian -- and not just any Russian, but Vladimir Putin himself!
Now on to more serious matters. . .
The Sessions "Scandal"
In yesterday's report, I debunked the left's latest smear campaign against the Trump Administration and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Here's a brief update on the "Sessions scandal."
For much of the day, the media were hyperventilating about the "private meeting" that then-Senator Sessions had in his Senate office with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
At a press conference yesterday, Sessions noted that multiple aides also attended that meeting, including "two retired Army colonels on his staff." All told there are at least three witnesses to what was discussed.
That doesn't exactly sound like the kind of meeting where a senator might be plotting with the Russians to subvert our elections. But it has happened before.
Senator Ted Kennedy, a hero of the left, openly courted Soviet intervention in the 1984 election hoping to defeat Ronald Reagan.
How do two meetings between a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Russian ambassador rise to a level of scandal greater than the Iranian nuclear deal?
Barack Obama conducted secret negotiations with the Iranian regime, which killed American troops. When Obama's nuclear deal was reached, much of it was kept secret from Congress.
The Daily Caller notes that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak visited the Obama White House at least 22 times. What was he discussing then and why don't the media care about those contacts?
Is it possible that the Russians were working with the Obama White House to frame Donald Trump? Given how the Iranian nuclear deal was handled, how Obama was constantly appeasing our enemies like Cuba and how eager he was to show Putin his "flexibility," who knows?!
But the media will never ask those questions.
Rush Limbaugh noted that the media have already established the narrative that Russia got Trump elected, so liberal contacts with the Russians don't matter. It's only conservative contacts, i.e. Jeff Sessions, that must be thoroughly investigated and it is only conservatives, i.e. Michael Flynn, who must punished.
Rush warned that unless the right figures out a way to flip the script and go on the attack, the media will continue to exploit the "fake news" of Russia's meddling in the elections as a battering ram to take down the administration.
It's really not hard to get control of this story. For example, why did Obama order secret wiretaps on the Trump campaign in the first place?
Oh, you didn't know about that? More on Monday.
The left is accusing Vice President Mike Pence of gross hypocrisy today. Evidently, Pence used a private email account when he was governor of Indiana. Of course, Pence was also very critical of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during last year's campaign.
The comparison is beyond absurd.
The governor of Indiana does not deal with the nation's national security secrets. As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton did. That was the issue.
Another "So-Called Judge"
Last month, President Trump took a lot of flak for referring to a federal judge as a "so-called judge." Well, another "so-called judge" is making news today.
On January 27th, Diddier Pacheco Salazar appeared in Judge Monica Herranz's courtroom in Multnomah County, Oregon, facing DUI charges. Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were waiting outside the courtroom to detain Salazar, but they became suspicious when he never came out.
Now Judge Herranz is under investigation for allowing Salazar to escape through her private entrance. ICE agents reportedly decided not to press criminal charges against Judge Herranz, who may still face administrative sanctions.
I think it was a mistake to let this "so-called judge" off the hook so easily. If she wants to be an advocate for illegal immigrants and open borders, fine. But she should take her robe off and give up her gavel.
