"The Attorney General Must Resign": Pelosi, Top Democrats Calls For Sessions' Immediate Termination

Image result for nancy pelosi is nutsIt took minutes, not hours, for top congressional Democrats to call on Trump's Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign on Wednesday evening after the WaPo reported that he had allegedly met with the Russian ambassador in the months before the election, meetings that Sessions did not disclose during his confirmation hearings.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) led the effort late on Wednesday night, accusing Sessions of "lying under oath" during confirmation proceedings about his contacts with the Russians.

"Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate. Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, 'I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.' We now know that statement is false," Pelosi said in a statement. She then added that "The Attorney General must resign. There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House oversight committee, also called on Sessions to resign, as did Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Richard Painter, the former White House ethics lawyer to President George W. Bush from 2005 to 2007, also blasted Sessions and in a statement on Twitter said that "misleading the Senate in sworn testimony about one own contacts with the Russians is a good way to go to jail."

Responding to the WaPo report, in a statement issued early on Thursday morning, Sessions said, "I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false."

To be sure, there is some verbal semantics in play: the WaPo's core allegation is that Sessions did not disclose his meeting with the Russian ambassador Kislyak - which took place in July and September, the second meeting reportedly occurred in Sessions' Senate office - to the Senate when he was asked about "possible contacts between members of President Trump’s campaign and representatives of Moscow." Sessions’s spokesperson at the Department of Justice, Sarah Isgur Flores, says his answer in January was truthful because he was asked about “the Trump campaign, not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee." She added that "there was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer," during the confirmation process, noting that he had over 25 conversations with ambassadors as a member of the Armed Services Committee.

Just look at that deranged face, that is the face of the sick mentally ill Left, the democrat party. The Hateful delusional Left liberal. Filthy nasty bastards of the Left, the country's true enemy. Put a round in that illness or institutionalize it for life. AIRMAIL IT A CAP.

The LIBTARDS, ESPECIALLY Pukey Pelosi and the " TOP" ones are too ignorant , stupid, and self centered to have ANY kind of view, especially a GOOD one about ANYTHING, let alone one concerning politicsand what should or should not be done about them. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS !!!!!!!!

Pelosi is obviously suffering from some type of mental health issues. She appears to float in and out of lucidity. So, the question is, what can be done about a mental health test and or physical? Should the person if found unable to perform consistently, should they be forced to step down.  Are there any provisions for Senators/Congressman, regarding these issues for removal under these circumstances?? The left wants the Prez. head for mental health issues(25th amend.?) Lets start Pelosi, Schumer, even McCain.

Real American Patriots should never give an inch to these evil demonRATS.  All demonRATS are evil and must be eradicated.

Oh, what a beautiful change for America if ALL liberal democrats just dropped dead!  If they don't drop dead, then yes, they must be eradicated because they are the enemy within!

the most destructive enemy within is not liberal Ds, but progressive Rs.

Both are...the d's no longer hide it and some RINOs like mcpain and graham do not either

BULL.  They keep trying to claim that ANY contact with the Russian ambassador should have been included in his answer.  BUT, their question was consistently did they discuss the 2016 elections, and the answer to that was...........NO.  I'm sick of this crap.  They're obstructing everything.  Democrats have no concept of "bipartisan", I'm sick of their whining and lies.

Thank you nasty nancy and chrome dome cummings, for enlightening us about this horrible new AJ Sessions. I'm sure he is worse than "machine gun holder" and "should be lynched." 

I am sure all of us conservatives will give your recommendation a lot of serious consideration, "Say, in about 8 years." 

We love both of you for your strategic and well thought out advise. Keep letting us know what you think!

They are identifying themselves,remember them.Out them all.

Libtards are getting more retarded by the day. They have NO power to call for anything. They have NO proof of anything. Nancy Polosy needs to be in a mental institution.

Perhaps I am not loyal enough to the hard core right.  I do not think Sessions has the gonads to do what is needed in the AG position anyway.  Where's Rocky Balboa?

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
