The Deep State just keeps coming.
Like a freight train, Deep State operatives persist in attempting to bring President Trump’s administration down.
But the sinister Deep State just released an attack on Attorney General Jeff Sessions that’s completely unacceptable.
The Deep State is a web of lies extending from Obama and Hillary Clinton down to current occupants of office like Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota.
Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reportedly have different stories about their alleged meeting and the contents of it.
At least the liberal media would have you believe that.
Because Democratic hopeful for President, Sen. Al Franken said he believed Kislyak:
Franken said, “Jeff Sessions saying that he had not met with Russians during the campaign.
Now it turns out —it sounds like that Kislyak said they met in April. What I do know is what I read which is that I guess someone in Kislyak’s position can sometimes distort what he said when he is reporting back to say — to build himself up.
I also saw in those reports that Kislyak isn’t that type. And seems to me that since Attorney General Sessions hasn’t been terribly truthful regarding these things that it’s more likely that what Kislyak was saying was the case.”
So it’s clear that the liberal “mainstream” media is colluding with top Democrats to get their message out.
But the Washington Post crossed the line.
“The Deep State renewed its campaign against top Trump administration officials late Friday when it leaked to the Washington Post details of intelligence intercepts in which Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak reportedly told his superiors that he discussed “campaign-related matters” with Jeff Sessions before he became attorney general.
The Post reported that accounts of Kislyak’s two conversations with Sessions in 2016, when Sessions was a campaign adviser to Trump, were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies.
They were not seen by the Post, but in a typically Deep State move, were described to the paper by officials. The story has extremely scarce details on what exactly was discussed, for how long, and in what level of detail.
One official told the Post that the intel indicated that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on “campaign-related matters” including Trump’s positions on Russian issues, as well as prospects for U.S-Russian relations in a Trump administration.
Sessions recused himself from any Russian investigation in March after it was revealed he had two conversations with Kislyak in 2016, one in April and one in July — encounters he did not disclose at his Senate confirmation hearing.
If the accounts are accurate, they would appear to contradict a statement Sessions made in March in which he said: “I never had meetings with Russian operatives or Russian intermediaries about the Trump campaign.” He also said he only met with Kislyak in his capacity as a U.S. Senator.
Officials who spoke to the Post say they believe that what is on the intelligence intercepts contradicts what Sessions said publicly. The Justice Department said it was unable to comment on the story due to the lack of detail and the sketchy sourcing.
“Obviously I cannot comment on the reliability of what anonymous sources describe in a wholly uncorroborated intelligence intercept that the Washington Post has not seen and that has not been provided to me,” Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokeswoman, told the Post in a statement, and said that Sessions did not discuss interference in the election.
The revelation seems timed to do the most damage to the conservative, pro-border security attorney general, who has long been heralded as nationalists’ favorite Trump cabinet appointment.
Sessions has had enormous success in six short months in prison reform, getting tough on drug traffickers and violent offenders, and enforcing America’s border controls.
Sessions has been a hardliner on immigration for years. In 2015 he sent around an “immigration handbook” to new Republican members of Congress in which he called “immigration reform” a “legislative honorific almost exclusively reserved for proposals which benefit everyone but actual American citizens.”
Don’t believe the Deep State’s lies.
This is as sinister as it gets because it could be a driving factor in Sessions’ future as Attorney General.
But these leaks are no more than Deep State manipulation and conservatives need to recognize it each and every time.
