U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. In that testimony Sessions claimed he wasn’t asserting Executive Privilege when he refused to answer questions that dealt with the existence of any conversations he and Donald Trump might have had about Russia and James Comey, FBI Director. Sessions claimed he couldn’t talk about anything about which the President might wish to exert a privilege, himself, at a later date.
If these most recent witnesses who testified to the US Senate Intelligence Committee were questioned during Watergate, Richard Nixon might still be President of the United States. Chances are, he certainly would not have been impeached.

It was as if the members of the Louisiana House of Representatives were having a good time in Baton Rouge and did not want to go home.
With a threat of a Special Session hanging over their heads immediately following the Regular Session, House members refused to compromise with the Senate’s budget plan.
If Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards wanted to avoid political defeat on Louisiana’s budget, he managed to set himself up to make it more inevitable and worse.
In many respects, even as Attorney General Jeff Sessions faces the US Senate Intelligence Committee today, the future of the Donald Trump administration comes down to down to Donald Trump vs. James Comey. the battle of lies, veracity and credibility. The question, the ultimate inquiry, with whom do you believe?
Democrat Sen. Karen “Pottymouth” Peterson strikes again, illustrating the bankruptcy of ideas within her political party.

TRUMP'S NEW APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
In advance of the Louisiana House of Representatives returning to Baton Rouge for a special session to fix the budget, Governor John Bel Edwards issued this memo:
It’s rare to see a duel between truth and falsity play out as dramatically as it is in the ethics war
between the ex-FBI Director, James Comey, and the President, Donald Trump. Publically, each has called the other a bald faced liar. These aren’t the Aesop’s Fables your mother read at bedtime; not about the home run you never hit; or, the imaginary date with someone you never knew. This is hardcore, visceral stuff, the type that causes empires to fall and heroes to be found amongst ordinary men and women. It’s, also, the stuff of irony.
Close your eyes and just imagine:
A Reporter asks President Donald Trump during a press conference whether he will let the public know if he has a recording of his conversations with Jim Comey, former Director of the FBI.
There’s an old phrase that “a request from a superior is actually a command.” That was the essence of ex-FBI Director James Comey’s take on President Donald Trump’s expression of hope that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn be left alone because he was “a good guy.” Flynn is not, but that’s not the point.
To maintain the security of our homeland, our federal government depends on the services of contractors who work with our intelligence agencies.
It is imperative that these contractors employ individuals of high character and integrity for their mission is so important to the security of our nation.
