Lie Detector Tests

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told associates he wants to put the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to root out leakers. It’s unclear whether this will ever happen, but Sessions floated the idea to multiple people, as recently as last month.

Sessions’ idea is to do a one-time, one-issue, polygraph test of everyone on the NSC staff. Interrogators would sit down with every single NSC staffer (there’s more than 100 of them), and ask them, individually, what they know about the leaks of transcripts of the president’s phone calls with foreign leaders. Sessions suspects those leaks came from within the NSC, and thinks that a polygraph test — at the very least — would scare them out of leaking again.

Sessions has told associates he likes the idea of targeting the foreign leader phone calls because there’s a small enough universe of people who would have had access to these transcripts. Also, the idea that the President of the United States can’t have private conversations with foreign leaders was a bridge too far, even for Democrats.

Ian Prior, a spokesman for Sessions, declined comment when presented with the details of this report.

Hilarious: Generalissimo Donaldo Juan Trumpo has set his monkey’s paw to task waaaaaay too late. 1 Mueller’s got what he needs, and the IRS will feed him the rest.

Just a matter of time now…

  1. Also…how staggeringly hypocritical is it for lil’ Jeffy Session to ask others to take a lie detector test when he flat-out lied, obfuscated and back-filled at his own confirmation hearings?

Under Oath

May Crom 1 protect and bless Sen. Franken. 2

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said on Sunday that Donald Trump Jr. and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort should testify under oath.

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Franken was asked whether it was good enough for the two to testify behind closed doors and not under oath.

“No, that’s not good enough,” Franken said. “It should be under oath.”

Franken said he would like to ask questions about whether they had any other meetings with the Russians.

And if you’re asking why Donnie Jr & Manafort need to provide public sworn testimony 3, may we refresh your memory?

  1. What can we say: Sometimes evoking Thor is simply not emphatic enough.
  2. Valor pleases you, Crom… so grant Sen. Franken’s request. Grant America the truth! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!
  3. It is a crime to lie to Congress, whether under oath or not. However I doubt that bothers either Donnie Jr or Manafort – who’s going to call them on it – the members of the panel? It’s not like the minutes will be made public.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III

We don’t know about you, but we fully expect the United States Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, once he has been fully sworn in before the Senate Intelligence Committee today, to immediately start stalling, obfuscating and –where necessary– lying his ass off.

Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III

Sessions made it clear in yesterday’s cabinet meeting, where one by one each cabinet head proceeded to give OMP a lavish rim job (“It’s an honor to be able to serve you,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions) 1, that he was looking to get back into OMP‘s favor. 2

As one of the original neo-Confederates, Sessions has shown himself more than willing to lick OMP‘s shoes in public. Hourly, if need be. Which means he would fire Mueller in an instant should OMP ever mutter his New York version of will no one rid me of this troublesome special counsel? – “Get ’em outta heah!”

If the Senate Intelligence Committee is serious their very first question to Sessions should be: “Yes or no, please: at any time in your relationship with OMP did he demand your loyalty and how did you respond?” That would be a good question.

Sessions has absolutely nothing to gain by being truthful with the committee. Indeed should Sessions admit to more “undisclosed” meetings with Russia’s US Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, it is quite likely he would be out of work and, possibly, facing federal charges. We can tell you without fear of error that an average federal government employee who had made similar omissions during the hiring process would have been summarily dismissed from government service, with prejudice, and, depending upon the severity of the omission, immediately prosecuted.

Stalling, obfuscating and lying, that’s what we’ll see from Sessions today. 3

  1. If you are still undecided whether OMP fits the bill of a Third World strongman/dictator after that noxious display, you’re part of the problem. To put it in perspective
  2. We’re not any sort of medical personnel here at WNBTv, but it seems abundantly clear to us that –short man syndrome aside– Sessions has a few obviously unresolved daddy issues.
  3. If you want a worm to turn, reach out to Preibus; the guy doesn’t have and sand. When OMP pushes him to the curb, he’ll spill everything.

Flynn Takes the 5th

Once Upon a Time there was a very self-righteous man:

In a surprising reversal, the self-righteous man then sought out immunity: 1

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday backed a decision by his former national security adviser to seek immunity in congressional investigations of possible ties between his election campaign and Russia, but there was no immediate sign a request would be granted.

Retired General Michael Flynn, who resigned only 24 days after becoming national security adviser, wants protection against “unfair prosecution” if he testifies before the intelligence committees of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, his lawyer, Robert Kelner, said on Thursday.

Testimony from Flynn could help shed light on the conversations he had last year with Sergei Kislyak, Russian ambassador to the United States, while national security adviser for Trump’s presidential campaign.

U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives intelligence committee, said it was too soon to consider immunity requests.

And, finally, that same self-righteous man has refused to testify before Congress 2, staking out his claim to the 5th Admendment:

Hmmm – puts me in mind of something.

“What a piece of work is a Flynn! … And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of trash?” 3

Monica Redux

Sarah HuckabeeSay…isn’t that Monica’s old desk?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the latest iteration in a longish line of White House talking stooges, is said to be fast finding favor with our Pussy Grabber in Chief.

A Little Rock Central High School 1 alumni, as well as an undistinguished graduate of Ouachita Baptist University (where her father, Mike “The End Times Cain’t Come Soon Enough” Huckabee, earned a magna cum laude in his chosen field of study, Religion 2), Huckabee used her family connections to start her political career in Arkansas. Eventually she worked for her father’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Now she’s in the White House.

Just down the hall from noted serial molester of women, OMP.

One wonders, given our Pussy Grabber in Chief’s infamous predilections, whether he will find his own Monica knock-off too irresistible, or will he –at the very last second– remember what happened to the last Oval Office occupant who went down that path?

Bet it’s a near thing either way.

Shocked, I Tell You!

WASHINGTON (AP) — White House chief of staff Reince Priebus asked a top FBI official to dispute media reports that President Donald Trump’s campaign advisers were frequently in touch with Russian intelligence agents during the election, a White House official said.

Oooh! Shades of the Nixon White House! And just barely over a month into what promises to be a thoroughly venal and corrupt administration. Tell me more!

The official said that Priebus’ request came as the White House sought to discredit a New York Times report about the contacts last week. As of Thursday, the FBI had not commented publicly on the report and there was no indication it planned to.

The New York Times reported that U.S. agencies had intercepted phone calls last year between Russian intelligence officials and members of Trump’s 2016 campaign team.

Wait: The New York Times? isn’t that “fake news”? Why should Reince care? 1 We thought this administration didn’t listen to “fake news”?

Priebus’ discussion with FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe sparked outrage among some Democrats, who said that the chief of staff was violating policies intended to limit communications between the law enforcement agency and the White House on pending investigations.

“The White House is simply not permitted to pressure the FBI to make public statements about a pending investigation of the president and his advisers,” said Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.

…said a whole bunch of stupid Dims who apparently forgot that OMP and His Henchmen did just that throughout the entirety of his campaign.

The White House official would not comment when asked if the administration was concerned about the appropriateness of Priebus’ communications with McCabe…

Of course not, for the simple reason that ol’ Reincey’s request was not only unethical, it prolly also violates some law that disallows government officials to request other government official’s not tell, you know…the truth. Or more baldly – to ask a government official to lie.

We suspect our prediction of the OMP White House outstripping the Raygun White House for sheer criminality has already come to pass. It’s just going to be a while before it all comes to light… 2

  1. And, really, what sort of parents name their son “Reince”? Parents who want their son beaten up daily at school, that’s who.
  2. We expect the first (of many) “grab ’em by the pussy and tell” publications before the year is out; there will be too many dismissed & disaffected OMP minions for it not to occur. And the first of these will command top Americanos. The only question is who will spill the golden pee first: Conway? Reincey? Or someone else? We’re considering a pool…

Don Lemon Rocks

Let us hope this sets the standard for dealing with propaganda. As Mr. Lemon rightly points out:

“Please stop it with that stupid talking point, that it is a fake news story,” Lemon said. “If you don’t want to participate in the news stories on this network, then don’t come on and participate. But don’t call them fake because you don’t agree with them. Go on.”


And people who just willy-nilly make outrageous claims – shut them down.
