Today’s quote comes to us from Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX). Here is Mr. Sessions’ reaction to demands that James Comey release his “memo” about discussion he had with President Trump about Michael Flynn:
“If the New York Times has [Comey’s memo] that means we’re going to be able to see it and I would assume that would be fair. I assume that Mr. Comey also kept, if he’s disturbed by the same memos, that he gave to or about when Mrs. Clinton’s husband appeared in the jet with the attorney general.
“So I assume that memo would be available to us also. And I would assume that we will see a number of disturbing trends that took place at the Department of Justice [during the Obama administration] for whatever he’s claiming and I’ll look forward to seeing all those. But I cannot comment, because I have not seen them but I would assume that Mr. Comey, that if he kept one on this visit, evidently, he has others. Now I look forward to seeing those.”
If those memos exist, I know I’d like to see them.
And if, we are told, those memos do not exist, I know I’d like to explore the amazing coincidence that the only memos Mr. Comey managed to have for us attack just one side of the aisle.
Pete Sessions wins Quote Of The Day honors for, in effect (and, I think, very effectively), calling out James Comey and his Democrat pals by demanding an even playing field – something I doubt Democrats thought they would have to be dealing with here.
Sadly, however, I have little expectation mainstream media are going to join in making this demand.
Partisans hate a fair fight.
