In the latest witch hunt against people who stand up to the Russian conspiracy theory, even if there is not evidence that the Russians influenced the 2016 election.
Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General of President Donald Trump’s administration was questioned today, June 13th in a hearing.
One of the few people in the hearing that seemed to have some sort of commonsense who had an exchange with Jeff Sessions was not John McCain but Sen Cotton.
Kamila Harris, who is said to be the rising star for the Democrats, and talks of running in 2020 against President Trump, shes a woman and shes black so that should sell, the last thing the Democrats would want is an alpha white male, that would surely bring to light the lies they have been telling to the minorities. She went after Sessions like a dog after a bone, trying to show off how good she was at interrupting Sessions a number of times.
Kamila Harris is like a nasty combination of Maxine Waters and Elizabeth Warren. This is the Democrats' rising star. 😂 #SessionsHearing

In a segment between Sen Cotton and AG Sessions the two went on to say:
Sen Cotton: “I have a lot of questions, Mr. Blunt asked you if you had spoken in response to Mr. Comey’s statement to you after his private meeting with the President on February 14th or February 15th, you said that you did respond to Mr. Comey, Mr. Comey’s testimony said that you did not, do you know why Mr. Comey would have said that you did not respond to him on that conversation with you on February 14th through 15th?”
AG Sessions: “I do not, it was a little conversation not very long but there was a conversation and I did respond to him perhaps not to everything he asked but I did respond to him, I think in an appropriate way.”
Sen Cotton: “Do you know why Mr. Comey mistrusted President Trump from their first meeting on January 6th, he stated last week that he did but didn’t state anything from that meeting that caused him to have such mistrust.”
AG Sessions: “I’m not able to speculate on that.”
Sen Cotton: “Lets turn to the potential crimes that we know have happened, leaks of certain information, here’s a shot list of what I have, the contents of President Trump’s phone calls for Australian and Mexican leaders, the content of Mr. Trumps meetings with the Russian Foreign Minister and ambassador, the leak of Manchester bombing, the Manchester bombing suspects identity and crime-scene photos and last week withing 20 minutes of this committee meeting in a classified setting with Jim Comey the leak of what the basis of Mr. Comey innuendo was. Are these leaks serious threats to our national security and is the Department of Justice taking them with the appropriate degree of seriousness and investigating and ultimately going to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law?”
AG Sessions: “Thank you Senator Cotton, we have had one successful case very recently in Georgia that person has been denied bail and I believe is being held in custody but some of these leaks as you well know are extraordinarily damaging to the United States Security and we have got to restore a regular order principle, we cannot have persons in our intelligence agencies or investigative agencies or in Congress leaking sensitive matters on staff. So this is I’m afraid will result in and is already resulting in investigations and I fear that some people may find that they wish they hadn’t leaked.”
Sec Cotton: “Thank you my time is expired but for the record it was stated earlier that the Republican platform was weakened on the point of arms for Ukraine, that is incorrect the platform was actually strengthened and I would note that it was the Democratic President who refused repeated bipartisan requests of this Congress to supply those arms to Ukraine.”
