U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going to testify behind closed doors in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
He might have plenty to tell his former Senate colleagues.
Meanwhile, congressional Republicans finally are beginning to turn up the heat on the president of the United States regarding a reckless tweet he posted some time back about the potential existence of White House tape recordings.
Show ’em if you got ’em, Mr. President.
Donald Trump made some snarky reference to tape recordings after he fired FBI Director James Comey. It was that “Russia thing” that produced the dismissal. Comey and Trump reportedly had some conversations about Russia and the FBI”s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian government hackers who sought to influence the 2016 presidential election outcome.
There are so many “Big Questions,” it’s becoming difficult to keep track of them. One of them is this: Did the president record the conversations or is he bluffing about their existence?
Now comes the heat from the president’s side of the partisan divide. Republicans want him to clear the air.
Of course, the president hasn’t shown much proclivity to listen to anyone, let alone act on the torrent of advice he’s getting.
So, I suppose we should expect the mystery to deepen and the chaos to continue.
