On Friday, the crew at “Fox and Friends” insisted that embattled Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions did not perjure himself before Congress by not mentioning his meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Media Matters said that the co-hosts said Sessions was simply thrown off by Sen. Al Franken’s “crazy question” asking if Sessions had met with Kislyak.
“Al Franken had a tortured, circuitous question,” said Brian Kilmeade.
“It was a very long question,” Steve Doocy agreed.
Kilmeade continued by saying that “there’s an excellent chance that [Sessions] didn’t even — because nothing happened significantly — he didn’t even remember about the Heritage Foundation incident or this ambassador came through.”
Doocy later reiterated, “Well, it was — to his credit, it was a crazy question, a very long question.”
“He certainly did not perjure himself,” Doocy said. “Everybody agrees on that. But nonetheless, the Democrats are saying, ‘OK, he’s got to recuse himself. Oh, he did that? All right. Now he’s got to resign.’ He is not going to resign over this.”
Franken’s question was, “These documents also allegedly stated, quote, there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries from the Russian government. Now, again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so, you know. But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?”
As it turns out, Sessions himself had communicated with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at two separate meetings. The ACLU has called for a perjury investigation against Sessions and Democrats including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are calling on the Attorney General to resign.

The View’s Meghan McCain blows up on Tom Steyer: ‘I hate that guy — he should drop the hell out’
Conservative co-host Meghan McCain blasted Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer Tuesday, noting he's taking votes away from former Vice President Joe Biden.
In a panel discussion about the presidential candidates with "Shark Tank" hosts Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary, "The View" co-hosts asked about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his compliments for former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. O'Leary said that he has a home in Miami, Florida where it isn't acceptable to even mention Castro's name, much less defend him.

Battle for Duncan Hunter’s former congressional seat turns into an ugly GOP slugfest
California, once a red state, has become increasingly Democratic in recent years: both of its U.S. senators are Democrats (Dianne Feinstein and former 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris), and only six of California’s 53 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are held by Republicans. The Golden State lost one of its GOP congressmen after former Rep. Duncan D. Hunter Jr. pled guilty to a corruption charge and resigned, and Republicans are fighting it out in California’s 50th Congressional District over what used to be Hunter’s seat.
