"This is a cultural civil war. The other side is losing." -Newt Gingrich
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.
The meeting 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. Sessions argued with the Russian about Ukraine--hardly a stooge.
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 in the course of this (2016) 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: "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's surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.’
Sessions answered truthfully: "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 didn't have — did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it."
Sessions 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 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 wiretap leaks, 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.
Rush Limbaugh: Barack Obama and His Deep State Operatives Are Attempting to Sabotage the Duly Elected President of the United States
"This story is not about Jeff Sessions. This story is not about illegal talks between Trump and his campaign people and the Russians. This story is about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to sabotage the Trump presidency and do everything they can to either render it meaningless and ineffective or to get him impeached or force him to resign. That’s what the story is. And that is what has to be attacked, not defended.
We have no reason to be on defense all the time. We won the election. These people are barely hanging on. This is all they’ve got. And there’s no evidence, despite a year and a half of allegations of illegal contact between Trump, his campaign, and the Russians. There is no evidence.
No matter how much brilliance we come up with, no matter how much evidence to refute what they’re saying, if we accept the premise, we’re cooked. We have got to redefine what this is really all about. It is all about Barack Obama and the Democrat Party attempting to unseat President Trump. It’s all about sabotage and a scandal from the highest levels of the Democrat Party. That’s what is happening here. And that’s what people need to be told.
All of this needs to be explained to casual observers, American citizens, as to what is really going on. You know, I can play the game of defending Sessions. I’ve got all the Claire McCaskill tweets that show she met with the Russian ambassador and bragged about it even though she’s saying that Sessions should quit for having to do it. Sessions in his testimony during his confirmation hearings, this was not even about anything official. It was about that phony, fake dossier that the media and BuzzFeed had published.
Sessions was being asked questions about a dossier that was packed full of lies that nobody even maintained was true except the media. As I say, I’m gonna get to all of this in due course, but I actually think, folks, that the focus here needs to be on Obama and the Democrats and their motives. And I’ll tell you what’s driving this is Trump’s speech. Trump’s speech on Tuesday night has scared the devil out of these people.
They thought Trump was gonna continue to be what they think is a bumbling fool, you know, fortunately, luckily running into good things and eventually he was gonna start bumping into bad things, and he’s gonna screw everything up. He didn’t know politics. He didn’t know the establishment. It was gonna be easy to do end runs around him, and that speech came, and in their minds, that’s the greatest speech they’ve ever heard, and it scared the hell out of ’em.".......
For the record, here's how the Obama Coup is supposed to play out:
Bang the drum, stir the pot, fling the pooh and toss the gorilla dust until enough weak-kneed Republican sheep are separated from the flock for the wolves to call it bi-partisan.
Install an "Independent" Counsel who will try to create something out of nothing, see also Billy Dale, Benghazi film-maker, Scooter Libby, Officer Darren Wilson, etc.
Drag it out for years.
Scream "Watergate! Watergate!".
Lather, Rinse and Repeat.
The Russians are using intelligence services and Fake News to try to undermine legitimate elections.
And so are Obama and his Deep State Democrats.
