Diplomacy with the Russians has been vilified by the democrats and the progressive left from the inception of Donald Trump’s campaign for President.
The reason being that the American political left simply does not have personnel capable of achieving such a lofty goal. And, if the liberals can’t do it, you had better believe that they will use every trick in their long and shady playbook to thwart those who wish to outdo them.
The latest attack on the Trump administration comes as democrats decry the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, for his role in a diplomatic conversation with Russia. Now, even Russia finds the situation to be asinine.
“Russia on Friday decried the uproar in the United States over Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador as a replay of McCarthyism, voicing regret over the lack of any substantive dialogue with Washington.
“Sessions recused himself Thursday from any investigation into communications between aides to President and Moscow following revelations that as senator, Sessions twice spoke with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 election campaign and failed to say so when pressed by Congress.
“Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov argued that contacts with officials and lawmakers are part of any ambassador’s duties. He added that the pressure on Sessions ‘strongly resembles a witch hunt or the times of McCarthyism, which we thought were long over in the United States as a civilized country.’
“In the 1950s, Sen. Joseph McCarthy led a hunt for purported communist infiltrators in the U.S. government, often involving unfounded accusations.”
Lavrov is absolutely correct; the persecution of conservatives in our government who aim to bring peaceful relations with Russia back to the table should never occur.
