AUDIO Sessions Hearing: Intelligence Committee on a ‘Soviet-Style Hunt’

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Tuesday, host Mark Levin criticized the motives behind the Senate Intelligence Committee’s decision to question Attorney General Jeff Sessions saying the Senate Intelligence Committee is on a “Soviet-style hunt.”

“And so, his communications do have a privilege to them and a confidentiality to them that communications with other cabinet secretaries do not,” Levin said of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “Now hopefully they will dust off those memos and give them to the committee and explain it to them. It won’t satisfy the committee because the committee is on a Soviet-style hunt. A Soviet-style hunt, that is what the committee is all about right now.”

Levin’s comments come on the heels of Jeff Sessions’ testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, wherein Sessions made it clear that he never had any conversations with or met with any Russians or other foreign officials to discuss interference with any election or campaign.

Here is a transcript of Levin’s remarks on the show:

“The attorney general is in a unique position, uniquely different from all other cabinet secretaries. He’s not only the chief law enforcement official of the nation, he’s also a legal advisor to the president, not on personal matters, but on governmental matters.

“And so, his communications do have a privilege to them and a confidentiality to them that a communication with other cabinet secretaries do not.

“Now hopefully they will dust off those memos and give them to the committee and explain it to them. It won’t satisfy the committee because the committee is on a Soviet-style hunt. A Soviet-style hunt, that’s what the committee is all about right now.

“And the chairman of the committee is weak, this guy Richard Burr. Sorry, he’s weak. He plays along.

“But the fact of the matter is – on a number of fronts – separation of powers generally, preserving the executive privilege power under separation of powers for the president and also the unique nature of the attorney general advising a President of the United States as the office of legal counsel has explained in the past in legal analysis.

“So, there’s no cover up. There’s no obstruction. First of all, there’s nothing to cover up and nothing to obstruct.”
