Schumer Says Sessions Should Resign, Calls for Special Prosecutor

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign in the wake of a report that he had contact with the Russian ambassador last year and did not disclose it to senators during the confirmation process.

Schumer said it’s “better for the country if he resigns,” but that the most important thing is that a real investigation takes place.

“Has it already been compromised?” Schumer asked.

Free Republic doesn’t have the financing of some billionaire, hidden in the background. Free Republic is “grass roots” all the way. We’re not looking for 10 donors with $10,000 each, but we sure could use 10,000 donors with $10 each. The dollar amount may be the same, but the difference is in how we get there.

WE NEED YOU! Anything you can give is so greatly appreciated. If you can become a monthly donor, that is fabulous. If five dollars is what you can manage, bring it! Your on-going support is crucial, and our thanks to you are immeasurable.

Gee Chucky, I don’t recall you asking for Atty. Gen. Lynch to resign after her secret meeting in the airplane with Bill Clinton, or Obama to resign when he whispered to the Russian guy that he’d be able to do more after re-election, and on and on and on and on. Lots of Democrat underhanded stuff went on that we never heard a peep out of you.

Democratic mantra:

“There is no vote fraud.”

“The Russians hacked the US election.”

“There is no vote fraud to investigate.”

“The Russians stole the election.”

“There is no vote fraud.”

If the Russians stole the election wouldn’t that be a form of vote fraud?

The Senate has always been a prime source for fake news. I think it is the most concentrated group of liars on the planet, even beating the press at that metric.

In a just world, Schumer would swing from the tallest tree in Washington.

Sessions didn’t lie….he was asked if he had contact with the Russians during the campaign, and he correctly answered no.

Sessions met with the Russian ambassador when he, Sessions, was a senator on the Armed Services committee, and he also met with the ambassadors from India, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Japan, Korea, etc.

To: bryan999

I simply do not get this at all. Please help me.
So all the NYT or WaPo has to do is put out a supposed leak and then it has to be investigated?
Where’s the proof? Where is this leak? Who is it and what was said. Are there recordings of all these supposed links/ties/meetings with Russia.
I’m begging for one tiny piece of hard evidence.

I really, really hate this guy.

Is it a lie or he just didn’t disclose it? Geez… He was a EFFING Senator at the time. Trump needs to get his ass out on TV and shut this shit down. Tired of it. Sorry for the rant. But Damn.

Did Chuckie meet with any Russians? Uh huh. I thought so. Guilty.

Did Chuckie ever talk to Hillary Clinton?

How bout your fellow SHJ Lois Lerner, Chuckie?

Where were your resignation calls for that corrupt, political b****?

You unAmerican, lying hypocrite. You’re a disgrace.

Chuckle: if you have evidence that the Russians bribed Sessions, then produce it.

We have the evidence that your pal Vice President Al Gore, Democrat, was caught with a suitcase full of money from the Chinese government WHICH WAS A BRIBE!

And this is exactly why Sessions should not volunteer to recuse himself, or be asked; it only emboldens these POS Democrats for more bold demands.

I’m hopeful Trump doesn’t take the “We need to be conciliatory” bait and ask Sessions to recuse himself. It will embolden the Dems and make us look pathetic and weak.

Sessions says he did nothing wrong…great! Then please stop signaling to the Dems that you’ll recuse yourself! Good grief this is maddening!

This targeting of Sessions is a coordinated effort by the DNC and media. They are all crowing this morning about Sessions.

This is what they do when they don’t have the legislative numbers or power. They stomp their feet and throw up dust.

Maybe word is getting out that Sessions is reviewing Carlos Danger’s hard drive and that the pizza charges are about to drop.

You Chuck Shumer are so jealous that President Trump is EVERYTHING you are not…

You have, from the time you were born, been a disgrace to your family, your religion, and your State…

If you don’t like the way things are going, remembering you LOST, your the loser in this past election, then go back to New York and do something important: SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

You are filth, out and out filth, A.G. Sessions knows all about your little ‘ping pong pizza’ thing going on, as most of us do that have been doing the research on it…yes and we have it and can expose you so badly that it would take down half of the Senate, Representatives and most all of the government departments…so go home, sit down and shut up or we just might have to bring the government to it’s knees…

A lot of people on here don’t want to believe that ‘pizza gate’ is real, but it is and it have long legs that reach into foreign countries and to keep things quite they are paying these people a lot of money, A LOT OF MONEY!!!

I now know, by his desperate actions, that Charles Ellis Schumer, Senator of New York, is a pedophile involved in #PizzaGate.

Its not the Democrats that worry me. They have been, and will be squealing at every opportunity. The Republicans worry me. It really angers me how quickly they jump on every appearance of impropriety the Democrats cook up. They didn’t even attack Obama the way they are attacking Trump. But I will feel a little better if they assign Gowdy to investigate. At least I know it won’t go anywhere.

This targeting of Sessions is a coordinated effort by the DNC and media. They are all crowing this morning about Sessions.

This is nothing more than a coordinated campaign to get Donald Trump’s speech before Congress — which generated enormous (and unexpected) approval from the public — out of the news.

You can be sure that the DNC and the media have a whole pile of fake news stories like this that will be trotted out whenever they feel a need to push a positive Trump story out of the headlines. You can bank on this.

Funny you should mention that:

(Twitter).@SpeakerRyan: “If [Jeff Sessions] is the subject of an investigation, of course he would” recuse himself.
