    I’ve read all the comments, rewatched both videos. Relistened to Tucker’s first question to AG Sessions and conclude, “context is everything”.

    Tucker did nothing wrong, and everything, right. AG Sessions will be amending a clarification to his testimony, in light of the multiple Ambassadors mtg, Ukraine subject, which *wasn’t addressed* in congress’ hearing.

    Tucker relayed exactly what transpired previously (campaign, Russia Ambassador, Flynn) and asked if AG Sessions would be amending his testimony to Congress. At the very end, AG Sessions stated, yes, he would be amending his testimony.

    Seriously, rewatch it. Listen to how Tucker phrased the question, and what was said by Franken. You’ll agree, some of you wronged Tucker unjustly.

      Totally agree. Excellent summary of Tucker. Everything was set right for AG Sessions in this interview. No question was left off the table. He did a great service to ask them.

      Many here might be offended by them, but this interview really wasn’t for the supporters’ ears.

      Sessions is a Lawyer, Attorney General, former Prosecutor. People never having on-going internal access to the legal profession can’t truly comprehend it. It has a Code of Ethics. Some choose to follow the Code. Some don’t.

      Our President and his Cabinet & Admin are following the highest ethical code. I would want no different decision.

      How is it that the many faith-based commenters here expect Sessions to disregard the DoJ Code of Ethics in order to have the outcome they want pursued? How can we pray to God for this and that, but then knowingly disobey God’s moral commands when it suits us to have another outcome based on unethical behavior?

      Maybe dissenters need to ponder this.

    I love Sessions, but this was his big test, and he was found wanting. He just doesn’t come across as that bright or maybe past his prime. Franken clearly asked him “what would you do?” As in, would you recuse yourself? The question did not even ask about his own contacts with the Russians. This whole shit storm was because Sessions could not answer a simple question right, and his explanations today have been less than confidence inspiring. We needed a warrior and we were given a southern gentleman.

    • Your analysis is simplistic. There was a trap in Franken’s question which Sessions sidestepped. Franken wanted Sessions to give substance to the Russian witchhunt and to get him on record as treating it like it had substance by saying what he would do if it was true. Sessions chose to treat it as being dismissable and saying he knew nothing about such contacts and he was a surrogate. It is a trap to expect that if our side said exactly the right thing everything would be perfect. Its a war to the other side and they are experts in doublespeak and manipulation. No one can avoid being smeared or put wrong. Th only antidote is sunshine and hitting back.

    During the early stages of “Battle of the Bulge”, when things looked grim, Patton announced to the concern trolls on the Allied staff that they should let the Germans penetrate freely and deeply into Allied territory, because “the Krauts have really stuck their head in a meat grinder.” Politically it was impossible to just let them advance, but Patton was correct. He saw advantage when many about him were panicking.

    The Germans in the “bulge” were largely destroyed when Allied counterattacks cut them off and left them stranded, or they were ravaged by air power and artillery as they tried to escape back to their original lines.

    The Uniparty has come unhinged in the face of that amazingly effective speech President Trump gave, and are rushing into their own “bulge” firing every weapon they have. Watch Team Trump cut them off and chew them up.

        What drove me mad was that Franken did not ask Sessions if he had any communications with the Russians. He asked if Sessions found out that anyone with Trumps campaign had communicated with the Russians, what would he do about it? Sessions, wrongly so I think, offered up, without prompting, that he had been called a part of the campaign a few times but as such had no communications with the Russians representing Trumps campaign.

        It will hold true. And I think you are by far underestimating the importance of the highly acclaimed speech given by President Trump. The narrative will soon die out as media consumers grow bored of it. The evidence that Trump is as good as he and his supporters say is growing with each passing day. And that balance will continue to shift and those who are attacking Trump will back off more and more or risk looking like a lunatic who hasn’t kept up with the political climate.

        Be patient and just wait for it all to die out.

        Personally, I’m more interested in Oprah running for president. People will say she’s the left’s “Trump” but she has no experience in big and global business or interactions with world governments as Trump has. And frankly, she lacks the social balance required to be a US President — we learned what social balance means by way of Obama and his lack of social balance. We won’t make that mistake again and we won’t want to see it again any time soon as I’m sure Trump will remind us all when the time comes.

          • To repurpose one of our favorite Trump phrases, O doesn’t have the strength or the stamina to run for President. She is so accustomed to the ultra elite lifestyle, her comforts and her extravagances, I just don’t see her giving all that up! O has a private chef, who flies in her every morsel! Of course Trump had a golden lifestyle, but he spent his time making deals on the golf course and reviewing contracts on the weekends, and is happy with fast food.

            If O had wanted a soft, cushy government post, Obama would’ve installed her as Ambassador in a small, pleasant country. Think Carolyn Kennedy as Ambassador / Social Director in Japan.

          Oprah doesn’t stand a chance for several reasons. First, over the years she became this holier than thou “I am soooo enlightened…let me share my enlightenment with you” person that became off putting to many fans. Her endless saga with her weight including her current status as a Weight Watchers spokeswoman speaks to the issue of control. No matter her success, fame and fortune she cannot get control over what she eats. And that speaks to a host of other issues. (Chris Christie anyone?) And perhaps most importantly was her endorsement of Barrack Obama. Oprah broke her personal policy of never endorsing happened because she felt electing an unqualified black man for the highest office office was critical for our country. In doing this, her mask was removed and she showed her true racist colors. This was the final straw for many Oprah fans.

          There is no indication or willingness
          (and don’t kid yourself, there never
          will be a willingness) on the part of
          the communist dems for this to die out.
          Because they believe they have been
          somewhat successful with Flynn and
          Milo, they will ratchet up the attacks.
          They haven’t succeeded much
          in attacking Trump directly, so they
          have switched their tactics to those
          appointments and staff who work for Trump.

          They will find a weakness or make one up
          in order to have their surrogate, the main
          stream media, in particular CNN, broadcast
          their continuous lies 24/7.

          Don’t ever deny the fact of how evil they are.

          I think it exposes weakness (to them) if you
          give them a quarter. My advice would be
          to pound these traitors in the ground in
          whatever way you have available.
          And quickly; right when the faux charges
          crop up. Trump needs a “Scandal”
          gladiator team; one without the violence.

        This isn’t the first time I’ve wondered if the Trump team wasn’t going to win a particular battle with these enemies of the American people.
        But so far the President and his staff have stood up to each attack, way out manned, and prevailed.
        They lost Flynn, but I don’t see Trump team hurt by that because Gen. McMaster has been well received. He was a Tank commander, Patton.
        I just listened to Tucker and Sessions. Tucker was good, Sessions was amazing.
        I think Secretary Sessions wins this attack, and will look very good doing it!

        I hope I’m right.

      From Ace of Spades:

      We know from the Flynn case that the NSA is wiretapping the Russian ambassador. So when the Ambassador called Session’s office for a meeting, Brennan–and therefore Obama–would have known about it immediately. Not to mention the physical surveillance on the Ambassador coming to the office.
      This is hardly sinister. In fact, it was Session’s job. As the head of the Armed Services Committee, Sen. Sessions had met with the Ukrainian ambassador the previous day. It would be odd if the Russians didn’t show up to refute the Ukrainian case.
      So Obama’s Shadow Government knew that Sessions had met the Ambassador. They told Al Franken, too. Franken, knowing that Sessions had a legitimate meeting asked a Gotcha Question:
      “If there was any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government during the course of this campaign, what would you do?”
      That question was carefully crafted to apply to Sessions, despite Franken’s smarmy good-natured disclaimers.
      Sessions was supposed to say, “I would fire them. Or prosecute them.”
      And then Franken would say “What if it was you?”
      But instead Sessions responded to the earlier part of the question about the continuing exchange of campaign strategy.
      Sessions answered truthfully because he had never been constantly exchanging information with the Russians about campaign strategy or anything else. The only thing Sessions did was his job, as usual.
      But it was close enough for Franken, so he pocketed the answer to use after Trump’s speech or to use on the day that Sessions was going to recuse himself anyway, to make it look like he was forced. The timing was all pre-planned and the collusion was all Obama’s and his Soft-Coup crowd.
      Franken wasn’t asking a question; the Spooks had already given him the answer. He was setting a Gotcha Trap. The Fix Was In.
      This whole Gorilla-Dust Theater is being run out of Comrade O’s house with Valerie Jarrett. They tell their wholly-owned subsidiary CNN what story to run and when to run it. They coordinate the Shadow Government wiretaps, the Pooh-Flinging Press propaganda, the stooges like Franken and all the other on-command cockroaches.
      Obama’s Shadow Government had pre-impeached Trump before he took office or even won the election. We’ve never had anything like it before, but we’ve never had a communist traitor for a president before either.
      Don’t kid yourself–it’s a war.

          This was was a great interview……if he was on CNN. This was a hostile interview, and Sen Sessions realized that about 5 to 7 minutes in. He even called Tucker out on his badgering at about 13:00 Just look at Tuckers face the whole interview -Tucker does not like Sen Sessions. Tucker never says “alleged” or similar qualifiers words regarding the Russian kerfuffle, instead he always chooses words that assumes the false leftist smears as established facts. He tried to push the angle that if there is smoke there must be fire and then tries to put words to that affect in Sen Sessions mouth towards the end. He actually lies about what Sessions had just said about their being evidence of Russian collusion. Tucker is an anti-Trump establishment stooge. Watch his first interview with Krauthammer. He practically bowed and scrape to one of the ultimate establishmentarians, as Krauthammer spewed his global interventionist agenda. Tucker is another Murdock manufactured establishment stooge. Think Heatstreet. It seems to be a Breitbart style conservative fighter website but it is owned by Murdock, which is hidden. They want to pull in the new Nationalists that have been turning away from Fox News by emulating the new right media fighting style. Heatstreet is fiercely anti-SJW and anti-BLM and this fact oozes from the web site, but they are also hardcore anti-Trumpers, and once you know to look for it, you see the pro-establishment messaging that is hidden amidst the anti-SJW and BLM smokescreen. Tucker, like O’Reilly has perfected, will try to gain street cred by facing down some beta lefty’s while he is performing his real mission: very subtly pushing establishment messaging (like making Sessions into a pariah).

That is NOT being a journalist, and that is not “deep strategy.”

            I’m really shocked that more people on this post didn’t see that. Journalists have elevated themselves to an elitist position and they think they “drive” the news. If you look at any old news footage from years ago Old Codger, you will see how respectful journalist used to be when trying to cover the news.

            Tucker is quickly falling into the Megyn Kelly, Bill O’Reilly, CNN, NBC, ABC slime pit, and he will lose his audience. Too bad, I think he started out as a truth seeker and now Murdoch’s Fox news is writing and directing his segments.

          Good point and I agree completely, RS4. You can conduct a deep and probing interview and still be respectful (not that this needed to be deep and probing). Tucker just doesn’t know how to do it. In attempting to cover his own (and Fox) rear against accusations of a softball performance, he came across trying to play the tough guy on a ridiculous issue. He managed to give the issue credibility instead of recognizing it for the ridiculousness it was and simply getting the facts laid out. “Real journalist,” no. Fox puppet, yes.

      I disagree. I don’t know if Carlson and team Trump communicated beforehand. Let’s assume they didn’t. If Carlson serves up softball questions to Sessions the interview will be immediately dismissed as Fox duplicity with conservatives.

      By maintaining an arms-length adversarial tone the interview actually gains in legitimacy.

      Carlson was insistent and covering the angles necessary to prevent the oppo dopes from ripping him and the interview apart as duplicitous.

      If anything Sessions gained in stature by easily swatting away Carlson’s line of questioning with aplomb.

      This was, in my opinion, a very effective rebuttal interview on this desperate attempt by the dims to stop the administration before pizzagate and other assorted demo crimes and misdemeanors hit the fan.

      IMO a real journalist would see through the fake headlines and not push a false narrative. It baffles me too cause just the other day after Trump’s speech Tucker was saying how this entire Russian conspiracy is based on “absolutely zero evidence”, and then last night he was saying “there must be evidence because their is an investigation”. Sorry, but nothing changed between those two statements and that to me suggests this was nothing more than an attempt to propagate a fake narrative. Very disappointing.

    I noted that Jeff Sessions is very precise and careful in the way he does or does not answer questions. Very sharp. Trump has a good sense of who to hire and all of us should give his cabinet members a chance to go to work.

    Jeff Sessions has impressed me as honest and truthful. This is not true of the vast majority of politicians. His upright character in a sea of crooks is on full display to the American people.
    Sessions is proving his ethics, and winning my trust.

    I agree with his decision to recuse himself from investigations into Trump’s campaign because it would look like a conflict of interest. That is in contrast to horrible partisanship from the Obama years,

      I agree Sessions made the right decision although we don’t like it. Had he not endless hearings would go forth stagnating all. It does not mean those investigations end. There are two ways to skin a cat. This administration is taking the high road.

      Tucker asked all the questions that should be asked thereby giving Sessions the platform to answer them.

      Sessions is a big boy. Has our countires top legal title – Attorney General. A former prosecutor. Come on folks. For him it’s all in a lawyer’s days work.

      Asked. Answered. Over.

      Yes and no. War for those who are “beneath” the system. It is a very different kind of thing for Trump and his people. The battle is one of conflicting narratives. On one side of “the bulge” is the swamp and their agenda to destroy Trump. On the other side is Trump’s continued development as the greatest President the US has ever had. This is a war for public opinion and Trump is wearing their attacks out while pushing forward with his image development.

      This is a slow battle to be won even as the opposition would prefer to win their side more quickly. They will burn out and lose the public’s interest soon enough. Consider that the masses are consumers and as such are easily bored as each story sounds like the one before it and nothing ever comes of any of it. With only one casualty under their belts, that too will soon be forgotten.

      Trump has this, but it’s not the war the left wants to have.

        @Daniel – It is WAR, no matter how it’s sliced/diced.
        Many little battles fought, some won, some lost = the very essence of WAR.
        A nuclear-bomb-drop is the only WAR not fought with these little battles.

        WAR (definition #3): a contest carried on by force of arms, as in a series of battles or campaigns.
        Sure the “arms” are missing, in the literal sense, but I’d say weapons are most definitely used here in the political sense.

Who do they think they are?! Trump has started putting them back in their place and we should too.

      Tucker showed last night that he is a Fox shill, a puppet, not a journalist. I lost a lot of respect for him during that interview. I’m really shocked that more people on this post didn’t see that. If you look at any old news footage from years ago, you will see how RESPECTFUL journalists used to be when trying to cover the news. And by “respectful” I don’t mean softball questions either. Real journalism is lost.

      Tucker is quickly falling into the Cavuto, Megyn Kelly, Bill O’Reilly, CNN, NBC, ABC slime pit, and he will lose his audience. Too bad, I think he started out as a truth seeker and now Murdoch’s Fox news is writing and directing his segments.

                I suspect the Democrats are going to use the gap in time between now and the confirmation of Trump’s Deputy Attorney General to demand a special prosecutor.

                Expect the Deep State leaks to intensify during that time, with even more media hyperventilation with each nothing-burger.

                The acting Deputy Attorney General, an 0bama holdover, will then appoint a special prosecutor, who will be another 0bama crony with ties to the Deep State. The process of “bombshell” leaks that turn out to be nothing will then continue on under the special prosecutor for the next 4 years.

                Sessions made this possible. It’s like the guy is clueless as to what the ENEMY is up to. He doesn’t even seem to recognize that Democrats are the enemy. He was just so surprised that people who call him “my good friend” would say such nasty things about him during his confirmation, but he’s sure that’s all just bluster and they were just joshin’ and givin’ him a good ol’ hard time.

        As far as the second recusal, from what I understand this was a promise he had made when he was nominated, that he would recuse himself on any cases relating to the Trump campaign. Also, being an active part of a campaign is quite different from stating opinions so it still seems like a jump in logic to me to say that he now has to recuse himself from all these other cases.

    Hello CTH. I’ve been following this blog for many, many months and really like what I’m reading. Keep up the great work SD!

    As to the topic at hand, in reading these comments, I’d like to reply to a couple of points that have been brought up. I think Tucker was spot on in his questioning, not too easy or hard for AG. We must remember that it is not the media’s responsibility to be “nice” to those they like and “hate on” those they don’t like (but that is what the media is doing currently). Tucker may have been antagonistic in his questioning but he was professionally so. He removed the “media bias/pro-conservative” argument from those who would have been critical and also wasn’t trying to bash Sessions (like a regular media outlet would have done). It is better to lean toward being antagonistic to the interviewee vs being their friend. A person who asks antagonistic questions (and actually listens to the answers, which happens rarely) will get farther in figuring out the facts than a “nice” reporter who just wants to confirm their bias and talking points. Just my opinion on the subject though. Objectivity is the ultimate goal in media, not pro-right or pro-left.

    Also, as to the #FakeNews, remember, this hashtag was created by the media to delegitimize Trump. Trump took it away from them and turned it on them. I feel that many older Trump voters don’t realize that perhaps Trump is acting they way he is on social media, not for *you* (the older working class people who aren’t on twitter) but for the youth (who *are* on twitter a lot more than you guys are… or should be 😉 ). I know DML has touched on this topic and wants Trump to stop with the #FakeNews but it is controlling the narrative; while Trump definitely does need to focus more on policy (I concede he has done poorly here), he shouldn’t stop talking about the #FakeNews (or biased news).

    Wait a minute, so Obama actually requested one the meetings of Sessions with the Russian ambassador in 2016?? Why didn’t Sessions say that in this interview? I’m sorry, but AG Sessions did NOT do a very good job combating these baseless questions and hmm’s and uhh’s that Tucker tries to act stupid about. Sessions should have told him, here is exactly what FrankenBerry asked, and here is what I answered…… and that’s all there is. So uhh and ahh and go Tuck that.

    The Russia smear may be a self-protection measure by Soros and Rothschilds to make it politically difficult for POTUS/Sessions to fill an existing Interpol arrest warrant by Russia against Soros/Rothschild.

    Soros (and Rothschild) are the money men behind Europe and U.S. political manipulations, but before politics usually comes self-preservation:

    By painting these “Russia connections” smears on Trump and Session, Soros makes it politically difficult for POTUS/Sessions to simply fill these outstanding Interpol warrants and ship Soros and Rothschild to Russia.

    From what I can tell, no judge or court is involved in extraditing on an Interpol arrest warrant.. The decision rests solely with the POTUS/Executive Branch. If that’s true, then Soros/Rothschild must be sweating their vulnerability to being picked up on this Russian warrant.

    After this massive Russia-connection smear campaign it will now be politically more difficult for President Trump to fill this Interpol warrant and wave good-bye to the chief money men behind the globalist/extreme lefist movement.

    Sessions has recused himself twice now. Stop giving these people what they want. Give them an inch and they will try as hard as they can to take a mile.

    The problem I’ve had with this whole scenario is that Sessions answered the question he was presented with and he answered it as a lawyer, which he is. A lawyer doesn’t give more than what is needed.

    The exchange:

    FRANKEN: CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week that included information that quote ‘Russian operatives claimed to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.’ These documents also allegedly say quote, ‘there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.’

    Again, I’m telling you this is just coming out, so, you know. But, if it’s true it’s obviously extremely serious. And if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?

    SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.

    What disappointed me with the interview is that Tucker didn’t question the part of “…in the course of this campaign…” which was left out. Franken didn’t ask about “ever.” The other part is Sessions also answered “…and I’m unable to comment on it.” Why didn’t Franken or even Tucker expand the questioning on that answer and ask what he meant by that? IMO, Franken didn’t ask anymore because he knew as a Senator, Sessions had met with the Russian ambassador as well as others and couldn’t speak about it. Why didn’t Tucker ask about it then?

    To me, it doesn’t matter about Tucker asking “hard” questions, what’s important is asking good questions. I feel Tucker’s interview was sloppy as he should have asked questions according to what was asked and answered instead of what the MSM has been yaking about.

        How tedious it is to come across people like you. If you have a disagreement with me, then ask a question or make a comment. I would be more than willing to have a discussion with you, but when you show yourself to be an arse, I’ll just place you back in the trash bin and not waste any more time.

          And I’ll be happy to engage you on substance Moonbreath:

          Part of the problem with lawyerly responses is that they often don’t play very well politically. That is one of the things that infuriated people about the Clintons.

          So it might well be that Sen. Sessions considered it a sharp lawyerly tactic to respond that he hadn’t communicated with the Russians because he had his Senator hat on when he met with them – not his campaign surrogate hat.

          But that distinction is lost on non-lawyers and makes him vulnerable precisely to the pickle he is in right now.

          There were many other ways to dodge that question.

    Never like Tucker. He should remain at 7pm slot.
    The current 7pm slot by MacCallum is sucks.
    Trish Regan from Fox Business News should be the one to get the Fox News Channel 9pm slot.

    I applaud Tucker for this interview. If he had asked even a single softball question, Tucker would be attacked mercilessly by the hoaxing media, and Sessions would be regarded as a guilty coward, one who had no guts to “answer hard questions” that “journalists” seem to think only they can do. In other words, a media and PR fail. This interview was truly journalistic, the only difference from MSM interview is that Tucker asked relevant questions without political advocacy, and he also allowed Sessions time to articulate his reasoning and explain his statements and conduct without cutting him off. In other words, Tucker was practicing old school journalism.
