I always wonder why Shep Smith stays in the propaganda network that is Fox News, since he seems to have some small shred of journalistic integrity in him.

I wish he'd give us a "good black eye from a pretzel" excuse at least.  It would be semi-believable.

Commit to your art (perjury), dammit.

How long is this going to go on? Every time a new bombshell about Russian collusion comes out, Sessions goes to Congress and pretends not to remember what happened. It's getting ridiculous.

Funny how he never remembers suspicious meetings until someone else finds out about them. At that point he recalls them, but only the parts that make it sound innocent, and "forgets" all the other details that would illuminate whether it actually was innocent.

He's white, male ''christian'' and wants to see a lot of people suffer. I'll be surprised when they don't vote his corpse into a position of authority somewhere in the US.

That seems like the sort of thing -- whether you got a lot of sleep or not during the campaign -- you would remember.

It's just an act.  Shep has no credibility.

As for Sessions, to see a prosecutor say "I believe" is demoralizing, and an order of magnitude more so when that person is the AG.  You either know or don't know--this I believe shiat is for liars only.

Someone should get smart and look through the court transcripts of Sessions' old cases to see how he reacted when a witness for the defense said "I believe" on the stand.

That's rookie shiat.  You never say I believe on the witness stand of you respect the rule of law.

Um, I hate to break it to you guys...but he's probably lying now and he was obviously lying then.  I'm beginning to wonder if he's capable of telling the truth at all.

i expect his next testimony in front of any committee to go as well as Baldrick's did when George questioned him after Blackadder shot General Melchett's favorite speckled pigeon.

Senator: "Are you Jeff Sessions"
Sessions: "No"
Senator: "But you are Attorney General?"
Sessions: "No"

Senator: "Who are you, then?"
Just some guy: "Just some guy."
Senator: "I think you're lying, mister Sessions.  Why are you here at all?"
Not Mister Sessions: "I've been trying to figure that out since I walked in here."
Senator: "Can we stop playing this game, whatever it is, Attorney General?  I remind you that you're under oath."
Not under oath: "I'm not under oath, and I'm not Jeff Sessions."

Is there any slim chance that Sessions has flipped for Mueller already and is avoiding answering all these questions under oath? If he was avoiding direct answers to the questions due to that highly unlikely magical reason, would he be able to get around perjury charges? I had been thinking about how he answered about his recusal, and this popped in my head as a snow ball in hell possibility.

Because it's not a requirement. They can lie blatantly and never suffer any repercussions. Remember the heady days of Bush the Lesser, when Rummy flat out stated, on camera, that Iraq possessed WMD's? Then several years later, again on camera, stated that he never said that? No one cared. No one called him on it. It's the same with Sessions. He could swear under oath  tomorrow that not only has he never even met D2S, he's never been in the same country as him and nothing would come of it. He's above the law and he knows it.

My favorite part of Jefferson's little tribunals is just how visibly uncomfortable it makes him when he has to answer difficult questions from minorities, women, or OH GASP LAWDY! A minority... Woman!
It makes his racist lizard brain short circuit.  He plays easily offended southern Belle very well.

He needs to be called on it more. It is beyond patently obvious that he treats minority women worst of all. He's got a serious hate on for being talked to by "uppity" women in a "disrespectful" tone.

I just love the prim smirk he maintains all the way through the testimony, as if he is patiently explaining to children why they can't go to the circus.

If the woman sitting behind him was his wife, I'd like to see a polygraph set up on her while she listens to him talk. I swear that woman's reactions looked like she could tell when he was lying and was really uncomfortable and nervous.

Sessions hasn't flipped, but as Flipadopoulus' superior he's likely under sealed indictment.

When you're AG, and you talk to the FBI, you are expected to be forthcoming.  If they ask you if you wore a red wool sweater on Saturday, you don't get to tell them "no" because it was actually a red alpaca sweater.  Misleading investigators to the degree that Jeff Sessions had misled them is the same as lying to them.

Mueller will not be playing that shiat.  I had my doubts about Mueller, and I'm still pretty skeptical about the Rule Of Law in an America controlled by a Russian-backed GOP good ol' boy network, but after reading the circumstances of GP's arrest there is little doubt in my mind that Mueller is going to take down the Trump Administration, and Sessions with it.

Perjury is ok if 1) you are doing a good job and the economy is thriving; 2) you can blame the trial in which you perjured yourself on a partisan witch hunt, and 3) you're a democrat. Too bad for sessions he doesn't meet criteria #3, otherwise he would be getting defended by the Clintonians in the house, right? Of course this is a far worse offence as we're talking about potential sedition!

This guy should be raked over the coals. The "best of my recollection" crap is such lawyer speak. I hope he goes down, hard.

Sessions and McConnell are the most punchable. Although Paul Ryan is not far behind.
