Democrats are showing off their hypocrisy after they first demanded that former FBI Director James Comey be fired for his handling of the Clinton email investigation in the fall of 2016 and then attacking President Trump for firing Comey on Tuesday for the same thing.
Congressional Democrats and the mainstream media are using Comey’s firing to go after yet another member of the Trump administration.
This time, they have Attorney General Jeff Sessions in their sights.
According to Swamp Drain, Congressional Democrats are calling for Sessions to be fired or to resign.
In March, Sessions recused himself from the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election after it was revealed that he spoke to the Russian Ambassador to the United States on two occasions.
Even though the meetings were for official business when Sessions served as a Senator, he refused himself from the investigation to avoid any appearance of impropriety.
Democrats are asserting that Sessions violated his own recusal by advising President Trump on Comey’s firing since Comey was leading the investigation into Russian involvement in the Election.
“Comey should be immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of Russia/Trump investigation at the time he was fired,” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-N.Y.) tweeted on Tuesday.
“Sessions said he’d recuse himself from anything to do with Russia. It’s clear he did not. Calling for him to resign (again),” Wyden tweeted again on Wednesday.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Ca.) took it even farther when she called for Sessions to resign during a Thursday appearance on CNN. She said that his involvement in Comey’s firing “calls into question his objectivity.”
The entire scenario has become quite absurd.
Democrats demanded Comey be fired. He was. Now they are demanding that Sessions be fired for doing the same thing that they wanted to be done in the first place.
