Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 16, 2017

Two Republican operatives on Tuesday called out Attorney General Jeff Sessions' declaration that the "chaos" of Donald Trump's campaign rendered him unable to recall meetings in which Trump campaign aides told him of their efforts to reach out to Russian government officials. John Weaver, who served as top strategist for Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich's 2016 presidential campaign, mocked Sessions on Twitter for having a "possum memory" and noted that most people would remember conversations in which campaign officials floated the idea of getting help from hostile foreign powers to defeat their opponents. "Jeff, I've been involved in scores of presidential campaigns and politely suggest meetings with Russians or discussions about the candidate meeting with Putin ... ANYONE would remember," he wrote.

Tim Miller, a Republican consultant who previously worked for Jeb Bush's 2016 presidential campaign, responded to Weaver's tweet and said he was also highly skeptical of Sessions' contention that he couldn't possibly be expected to remember campaign aides telling him about their plans to collude with the Russian government to help their candidate.

"'I was talking to the Ruskies and I think Jeb should meet with Putin' is an exchange I'm confident I would have retained," Miller wrote.

He should have employed the Reagan 'alzheimer' dodge. '...to the best of my recollection...'

This is great actually. Now we don't have to remember anything from 18 months ago.

Just say your life is so chaotic you just can't remember anything! Like lil Jeffy.

Though, unfortunately, I am sure my wife can!

@#5 ... Someone so memory impaired as Jeff Sessions claims has no business being the USAG. ...

My thinking is along similar lines.

Amazing how he only remembers IF there is indisputable proof that what he said earlier simply wasn't true.

Is that the wording you intended?

SNL has been comparing Jeff Sessions to a Possum for weeks.

Looks like life is now imitating art.

Reality and fantasy have been merging for a long time in America.

It's getting to the point now where it is getting difficult to differentiate between the two.

Especially for those who are mentally challenged (i.e. Trumpsters).

I am surprised that no one questioned his ability to do his current job as AG with such a faulty memory.
