Senate Democrats enter new territory on Russia probes with push to grill Sessions, Trump

Written by  Fox News

Senate Democrats are looking to intensify the Russia-related investigations on Capitol Hill despite a call from Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to abandon the “collusion” track for lack of evidence – with plans to grill Attorney General Jeff Sessions and even a bid from the Senate’s top Democrat to get President Trump under oath.

While Trump has not responded to the invitation, Sessions already has agreed to answer questions Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee in the probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race. Presuming that hearing goes forward, the big question is whether Sessions will testify in public – and in doing so, drive the same kind of media frenzy that surrounded fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony this past Thursday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday he wants Sessions speaking in public and under oath.

“There are some questions about Sessions that have to be asked,” Schumer said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

Schumer, in the same interview, invited Trump to testify before the Senate, responding to the president’s Friday claim that he’d be “100 percent” willing to speak under oath. Regardless of whether Trump agrees, the pursuit of Sessions and several Trump campaign figures for questioning on Capitol Hill virtually ensures the Russia investigation will continue to play out in public and cast a continued “cloud” over the administration’s agenda – even as special counsel Robert Mueller pursues his investigation behind closed doors.

President S**t Bird should confine himself to tweets, and not let his attorney make idle threats. Unless, of course, Comrade Donald Ivanovich wants to speed up his own impeachment, as a result of the Russian Connection. It would give him an excuse to resign, and spend the rest of his life pi**ing and moaning about how he was driven from office.

Rednecks, peckerwoods, and crackers, oh my! Have a care, LeeRoy. President S**t Bird hasn't built that wall around the edge of the earth yet. We don't want any of you flat-earthers and Obama-birthers to fall off.

Tell me, Daisy Mae, do you people on the far-right EVER think about what you say, before you say it? That's the Donald Trump Syndrome, isn't it? Speak first, then think?
