The Ignorance - It Hurts

Trump probably thinks the same as Huckabee. And Huckabee was also a candidate for GOP presidency. The difference is, as Paul Ryan infamously said, Trump is new at this; Huckabee was a fucking governor.  Either he's intentionally misleading his Twitter followers, or he's an idiot who should have never been in government in the first place.  Or both, I suppose.
You’re probably hearing a lot of this because it’s the Republican talking point. But it’s only meant for those who really don’t understand the most basic ideas about our government. That is to say, it’s meant for the Trump base.


Jeff Sessions isn’t Matlock defending Trump in a very special episode.

There is no attorney-client privilege. There has been no executive privilege asserted; either it is asserted or the questions must be answered.

Or not, apparently. And if the Senate Committee is not going to charge Sessions (Coats and Rogers, too) with anything - at least contempt - then they're not doing their job.
Sessions said he’s protecting the President’s right to invoke exec privilege [...] but there’s no such thing as maybe might be executive privilege one day, so it’s secret for now. It’s not as if Trump didn’t know Sessions was testifying.


The Attorney General doesn’t work for the President. The Attorney General is supposed to keep a wall of separation between the White House and DOJ investigations, and Mike Huckabee’s attempt to mislead on this point is a perfect example why Republicans are a threat to democracy.
...but hey, do what you will anyway.



I don't know what he's talking about with Warner, but here's Huckabee an hour earlier:

He should be embarrassed, and ashamed of himself.
