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.

EDWARDS PRESS2In 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:

trump micIt’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.
