Democrats sure do have it good.
Jeff Sessions: Behavior Described by Trump in ‘Grab Them by the P—y’ Tape Isn’t Sexual Assault
Not what he said…
SESSIONS: This was very improper language, and he’s acknowledged that.
TWS: But beyond the language, would you characterize the behavior described in that as sexual assault if that behavior actually took place?
SESSIONS: I don’t characterize that as sexual assault. I think that’s a stretch. I don’t know what he meant—
TWS: So if you grab a woman by the genitals, that’s not sexual assault?
SESSIONS: I don’t know. It’s not clear that he—how that would occur.
Sessions is clearly making a differentiation between consensual/non-consensual.
They don’t care.
“My hesitation was based solely on confusion of the contents of the 2005 tape and the hypothetical posed by the reporter, which was asked in a chaotic post-debate environment,” Sessions said. “I regret that it resulted in an inaccurate article that misrepresented my views. Of course it is crystal clear that assault is unacceptable. I would never intentionally suggest otherwise.”
Then they support those who ignore the corrections….
The UltraViolet petition calls for Sessions, a former federal prosecutor and Alabama Attorney General, to be removed from the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee.
“One of Trump’s biggest allies doesn’t think grabbing a woman by the genitals without consent is sexual assault. What’s worse: He’s in charge of making laws that govern sexual assault. No wonder our legal system so often fails rape survivors,” the petition notes.
“We cannot have men like this deciding judicial nominations and laws governing sexual assault.”
As of 11 a.m. Thursday, the petition had 40,916 signatures.
Sen. Sessions office said it had no comment on the petition.
The petition is directed to the Senate Committee on Committees, the group that appoints lawmakers to individual groups. Sessions is a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, serving as chairman of its Immigration and National Interest Subcommittee. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts and the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism
The media is Hillary Clinton’s most effective Super PAC.
This will have ZERO impact.
