Papadopoulos: Sessions Was ‘Enthusiastic' About Possible Putin, Candidate Trump Meeting
2018-09-09
BLUF:
[Breitbart]

TAPPER: Senator Jeff Sessions was there, too.

PAPADOPOULOS: Yes

TAPPER: At the table‐what was his response?

PAPADOPOULOS: My recollection was that the senator was actually enthusiastic about a meeting between the candidate and President Putin.

TAPPER: So you say that then senator now Attorney General Sessions was enthusiastic about the idea of candidate Trump meeting Putin, but he has said the exact opposite. He says‐he testified before Congress saying that he, quote, ’pushed back’ when you raised the possibility of a meeting with Russia. That’s not true you’re saying?

PAPADOPOULOS: I don’t remember that.

TAPPER: You don’t remember him pushing back?

PAPADOPOULOS: No.

TAPPER: You remember him saying that is good idea?

PAPADOPOULOS: I remember him being enthusiastic of a potential meeting between the candidate and President Putin after I raised the question.

#4  Sooo... "Enthusiasm" (true or not) for a meeting with Putin (not a crime as far as I know) which never occurred in fact during the campaign is "evidence" of ...ummm... something! The stupidity, it burns!

#3  Article Two, Section 2, Clause 3 of the US Constitution::

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Let's hope Donny's ready to go on this. And if Mitch won't allow a sufficiently long recess, then Donny either has to get enough of the Congress on his side to force one, or we all need to reconsider the point of the Republican Party's existence.

#2  I find it difficult to imagine Sessions as "enthusiastic" about anything other than nap time.
Snark of the day.
