On Wednesday, things got extremely heated during the congressional hearings over Russian election interference. Attorney General Jeff Sessions unleashed all hell on liberal Senator Al Franken over allegations he “colluded” with the Kremlin during the 2016 campaign.
“Since you have qualified your denial to say that you did not ‘discuss issues with the campaign with Russians.’ What in your view constitutes issues of the campaign?” asked Sen. Franken.
“Let me just say this without hesitation. I conducted no improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding a campaign or any other item facing the country,” shot-back Sessions. “That’s been the suggestion that you’ve raised and others. That somehow, we had conversations that were improper.”
Franken rudely interrupted Sessions blurting out, “I want to ask you some questions?” the Attorney General tried to respond to the accusations.
“No. Mr. Chairman, I don’t have to sit here and listen to his questions without having a chance to respond. Give me a break,” said Sessions. “The lead in to your question was very, very troubling […] You have now gone through this long talk that I believe is totally unfair to me.”
Sen. Franken was then directed to shut up and let the Attorney General speak.
