Sessions Under Fire: GOP Rushes to Eat Their Own Again
by Edmund Kozak | Updated 02 Mar 2017 at 2:39 PM
Some Republicans quick to pile on as Trump attorney general targeted by media, leaks......were quick to agree Thursday with Democrats calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election, following leaks and media reports that Sessions met with Moscow’s ambassador twice last year.The allegations, leaked from intelligence sources, were first reported by The Washington Post..........

Why the Heck Should it be a Firing Offense to Talk with the Russians?
By Monica Showalter
Democrats and the Beltway establishment have a vested interest in claiming any contact with the Russians is toxic and dangerous. It's wrong.........The problem of Not Being Allowed To Talk With The Russians is obviously a political gambit, but it's even more the case a bureaucratic one.........They aren't interested in national security, and they never have been.

If they were, they'd have halted the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton who was found to have committed the Mother of All Security Violations in illegally securing a private server to handle her State Department email. They didn't. We don't need to bring up leftist Jane Fonda succoring the North Vietnamese while U.S. servicemen were being tortured, or Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) colluding with the KGB in his bid to halt Ronald Reagan's re-election.

It's a grotesque spectacle given all that the Democrats have handed to the Iranian mullahs via the Iran Deal, as well as the no-conditions normalization of relations with the monstrous Castro regime. The Russians are the big problem? A problem so big a guy like Sessions dare not talk with them? The mullahs are laughing up their sleeves at that one. The Beltway Hive is even more complicit in this sorry state of affairs...............More
