Selective quotation all the way down!

FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2017

The night the change locked into place:
Last night, it seemed to us that it had finally happened.

Cable seemed partisan all the way down. We felt we saw nothing else.

On CNN and MSNBC, the stars were chasing Sessions around. Virtually every factual statement was being tilted in pursuit of desired outcomes. We thought we saw nothing else, in a way we felt we'd never seen before.

Lawrence said some of the dumbest things. A long stretch of work by Good Lawrence seemed to give way last night. Bad Lawrence reappeared.

Beyond that, let's discuss doctored quotation.

The pundits were all chasing Sessions around, insisting that he lied. Insisting that he'd lied under oath! That can send you to jail!

Did Sessions lie under oath? For ourselves, we aren't hugely inclined to judge that he did. That said, we also aren't hugely inclined to try to send people to jail.

Such assessments must start with fair quotation, of course. And good God! Aside from gong shows like Patrick's Leahy's gong-show account of what he asked Sessions, we've been struck by the selective quotation going on all over the world.

In this fiery essay at Slate, Michelle Goldberg quotes one part of what Sessions said to Al Franken during his Senate hearing. The part she quotes seems quite selective. She doesn't quote Franken at all.

In videotape on today's Morning Joe, the program presented one small part of what Franken said to Sessions. This program wastes time for three hours each day. But they chose to chop Franken's question was down, tilting the scales as to what Sessions was asked.

In this editorial in the Washington Post, the editors pull one lone sentence out of Sessions' reply to Franken. Franken isn't quoted at all. This is a very poor way to pursue criminal claims, except when the chimps are running wild in the streets and the scripts are coming from Kafka.

What did Franken say to Sessions? What did Sessions say in reply? Below, for the very first time, you'll see the text of the full exchange! Everyone else has been showing you the tiny fragments which will serve their side.

Sessions' confirmation hearing in the Senate occurred on January 10. Let's start with a bit of background:

Rather late in the session, Franken had been asking Sessions about the recent report in which the Director of National Intelligence stated, "We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election."

"You said earlier that you accept the FBI's conclusion," Franken said. Sessions didn't challenge that statement, but said he couldn't discuss President Trump's assessment.

Franken then asked about a new report by CNN, a report which had just appeared that day. This was the report about the British dossier with exciting charges about the Russians Trump.

Franken assumed that Sessions hadn't seen the brand new report. The following exchange ensued. In the past day, you've been seeing carefully-selected shards of this exchange:
FRANKEN (1/10/17): OK. CNN has just published a story—and I'm telling you this about a news story that's just been published. I'm not expecting you to know whether or not it's true or not.

But CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week that included information that, quote, "Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump." These documents also allegedly say, quote, "There was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump's surrogates and intermediaries for 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?

SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I'm not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn't have, did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it.
Sessions was asked about "a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump's surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government." He was told that, if the claim about the surrogates and the intermediaries was true, it was "obviously extremely serious."

Within that ominous framework, he was asked what he would do if it turned out that "anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign."

Presumably, these ominous claims were new to Sessions, and they arrived in a jumble. CNN's report, which Franken childishly called a "story," had just appeared that day.

Given this framework, we're not super-concerned by the way Sessions answered. It may be that he was attempting to conceal information about his September 2016 meeting with the Russian ambassador. But when he said he wasn't "aware of of any of those activities," it may be he was simply saying that he hadn't taken part in an "extremely serious" "continuing exchange of information with intermediaries of the Russian government" and didn't know of anyone else who had.

He may have thought he was being asked about the types of "obviously extremely serious continuing exchanges" he had just heard described. Indeed, that seemed to be what Franken was asking about. He didn't seem to be asking about routine exchanges which weren't "extremely serious."

Was Sessions trying to conceal his meeting with Kislyak? It's possible; it's also possible that he wasn't. What is clear is the fact that Democrats never asked him if he had engaged in any meetings with Russian "intermediaries," except in the follow-up question by Leahy, which Leahy flatly misdescribed on CNN yesterday morning.

(To state the obvious, Leahy misdescribed his question in a way which made it sound moire incriminating for Sessions. This is the way these horrible 78-year-old children play.)

In our view, it's time for the doddering Leahy to go. For what it's worth, this was Franken's follow-up exchange with Sessions during the actual hearing:
FRANKEN (continuing directly): Very well. Without divulging sensitive information, do you know about this, or know what compromising personal and financial information the Russians claim to have?

SESSIONS: Senator Franken, allegations get made about candidates all the time and they've been made about president-elect Trump a lot sometimes. Most of them, virtually all of them, have been proven to be exaggerated and untrue. I would just say to you that I have no information about this matter. I have not been in on the classified briefings and I'm not a member of the intelligence committee, and I'm just not able to give you any comment on it at this time.

FRANKEN: OK. Totally fair.
You've been seeing many doctored excerpts from this exchange. You've seen the usual chimps pulling the tiniest possible fragments from that exchange, trying to make the exchange look as bad as possible for whoever their target may be.

Dems and liberals have fared very poorly in previous stampedes of this type. But now that the rope is in our hands, we're chasing our target around the square, pretending to be upright.

We aren't upright. We also aren't real competent.

Last night, we saw a truly ridiculous set of claims made by Lawrence O'Donnell. On the Maddow Show, we saw an astounding presentation in which Michael Beschloss expounded on the greatness of the "special prosecutor" route.

Gone were decades of agreement about the pitfalls of special prosecutors. Maddow, of course, seems to know even less than the average orangutan about the politics of the 1990s, the period in which almost everyone came to agree that the special prosecutor system is loaded with pitfalls. A pleasing conversation ensued, dedicated to the proposition that Maddow's viewers were born some time last week.

The children are running wild in the streets. These episodes rarely serve the public interest. The recent history also says that these episodes tend to turn out poorly for the more liberal party.

Last night, it seemed that all pretense was gone. The chimps and the children were running wild. If only by way of comparison, we almost thought the chimps and the children were making Sessions look good. Final point—this is the way that exchange went, if you trust the shards of that exchange you're shown in the mainstream press:
FRANKEN: 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?

SESSIONS: I did not have communications with the Russians.
Inanely, that's the exchange which is being described in the "mainstream press." That account of what Sessions said is the stand-alone quote in today's editorial in the Washington Post.

Did Sessions lie to Franken that day? In our view, only a nation of children and chimps would want to insist that he did.

That said, your nation is that nation. It has been that nation for a long time. Have you heard about the Clintons' murders? About Candidate Gore's many lies?

Goldberg writes her novel: Over at Slate, Goldberg was imagining what must have been discussed between Sessions and the ambassador.

When the chimps and the children start playing these games, it's time for them to go:
GOLDBERG (3/2/17): If Sessions was taken aback by Franken’s question, he should have had time to compose himself before Sen. Patrick Leahy submitted a similar query in writing seven days later. “Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?” Leahy asked. This time Sessions gave a one word answer: “No.” When the Washington Post’s story came out on Wednesday night, Sessions released a statement saying he “never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign.” The word “to” is doing a lot of work here. Even if you believe that the meeting wasn’t set up in order to discuss the campaign, it seems inconceivable that campaign issues didn’t come up. Sessions himself didn’t exactly deny this at Thursday’s press conference: “Most of these ambassadors are pretty gossipy, and this was in the campaign season, but I don’t recall any specific political discussions.”
"It seems inconceivable that campaign issues didn’t come up!" In this act of imagining what must have been said, Goldberg channels yesterday's performance by the hapless Leahy himself.

Pitiful, horrible, low-IQ, dumb? What's the word a fair person would choose to describe such bald-faced novelization?

You aren't well served by players like this. In the pursuit of good jobs at good pay, they've been killing your interests for years.

My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

    4. My name is loveth anetor I live
      in California
      THE GREAT dr alexzanderhightemple BROUGHT
      MY HUSBAND BACK TO ME IN
      JUST A ONE DAY.
      i got married 4months ago. My
      husband and I have been
      living a very happy and lovely
      life. So as time went on, I
      began to notice this strange
      attitude that he was
      possessing. He was now going
      out with other girls, to the
      extent that he was no longer
      picking up my calls, and he
      was not even sleeping in my
      house anymore. I became
      confused and didn't know what
      to do anymore. So i
      became worried and stranded,
      that brought so many
      thoughts into my mind, because I
      have never experienced
      a thing like this before in my life.
      So I decided to visit a spell
      caster, to see if he can help
      me out. So immediately I went
      to the internet, where I
      saw an amazing testimony of a
      spell caster who brought
      someone's ex lover back,so I
      contacted him immediately
      and I explained to him all my
      problems and he told me
      that it will be very easy for him
      to solve, compare to the
      ones he has done before. And he
      also gave me some
      proof to be really sure of her
      work, and he assured me
      that my husband will come back
      to me immediately after
      he is through with the spell
      casting. And also he told me
      to put all my trust in him and I
      really obeyed him.
      So it was 8:00 am on the next
      morning, when I was about
      going to work, when i received
      my husband's call, and he
      told me that he was coming back
      home, and he apologized
      to me, and told me that he is
      very sorry for the pain that
      he has cost me. And after some
      hours later, he really came
      back home, and that was how we
      continued our marriage
      with lots of love and happiness,
      and our love was now
      stronger than how it were
      before.
      And these great man also told
      me that once my heart
      desire has been granted unto me
      that i should go and
      testify of his work right here on
      the internet. Right now I
      am the happiest woman on earth
      today as I am writing
      this testimony, and I want to
      really thank
      dr alexzander for
      bringing back my
      husband, and for bringing joy and
      love to my family.so you
      all there having dificulties or the
      other don,t worry every
      thing will be fine
      So my greatest advice for you
      out there who your husband
      or your wife is acting strange or
      behaving the same way
      like this, or you have any
      problem with your relationship or
      anything related to do with spell
      casting, is for you to go
      and visit this great man anytime,
      and i assure you that
      she will be of help to you, and I
      am 100% sure that he

  2. Wait a minute. If what you've posted here is accurate, what was being asked and what was being answered? On what planet does this exchange-

    "...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?

    SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I'm not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn't have, did not have communications with the Russians, and I'm unable to comment on it."

    ...constitute a question and an answer? The question "what would you do?" seems straight forward enough. He's asking would you, as attorney general, investigate these charges?
    But the answer is evasion and denial- even as Franken was careful to phrase his question to give Sessions the easiest of hypothetical outs. He could simply have replied "If these charges hold water I would investigate the matter," and be done with it.
    The evasion and denial turned out to be a much more telling answer. The fact that it also included what might be called the denial of a very narrow understanding of the phrase "communications with the Russians" makes it more revealing, not less.

  4. Megan McArdle has a lengthy column explaining why Sessions didn't commit perjury. Here's part of it:

    Now, I don’t know whether Sessions has been in contact with Russian officials or not about the election; neither the senator nor Kislyak have chosen to confide this information to me. But let’s assume for the nonce that he wasn’t. Was his response to Patrick Leahy’s letter reasonable? Eminently. It is reasonable even if, in the course of a meeting on some other topic, the ambassador idly asked how the campaign was going....

    Franken offered a lengthy preamble suggesting that the Trump campaign had been exchanging information with the Russians, then asked him what he’d do if there was information that someone in the Trump campaign had communicated with the Russians. In the time-honored tradition of congressional hearings, Sessions said he hadn’t had any such communications, had no knowledge of such communications, and therefore wouldn’t speculate about the hypothetical.

    If you read the latter part of this exchange extremely strictly, chopping off the preamble, then you can argue that Sessions was technically untruthful. The problem is that this is not how verbal communication works. The left is attempting to hold the attorney general to a standard of precision that is appropriate for written communication, where we can reflect on preceding context and choose exactly the right word.

    1. Perjury is a narrow legal definition of a crime. It is obvious to anyone paying attention that Sessions lied, is still lying and will be punished politically for it. He will most likely be asked to resign by Trump when he becomes such a liability that he must be thrown under the bus. That's the way these things happen -- not legal prosecutions.

    2. David I would not put too much stock in anything coming from disgraced libertarian Megan McArdle. She is a mindless Ayn Rand groupie who was wrong on the automotive bailout, wrong on ACA, even got caught promoting falsehoods about pharmaceuticals. She is a mess, a rudderless sinking boat. "for the nonce", really? I thought you people hated "elitists". I will grant you, there is nothing truly elite about Megan McArdle.

      Megan's premise that she uses to reach her conclusion is that we assume Sessions is innocent. Ha! Sure thing. She argues like a typical Republican operative clown; if we assume no bad behavior then there was no bad behavior. Nothing to see here, do not question our fearless leader, Megan says, echoing creepy Stephen Miller:

    3. "f you read the latter part of this exchange extremely strictly, chopping off the preamble, then you can argue that Sessions was technically untruthful. The problem is that this is not how verbal communication works."
      She's right. This is not how verbal communications work. The more I consider the odd response to Franken's question (see my post above) the more I come to believe that smartypants was leading Sessions to make an "admission" without having to make an accusation.
      It's the old "me thinks thou dost protest too much", not about Sessions truthfulness. It served the purpose- outing the truth- very adroitly.
      I'm no fan of Franken, but I'm pretty sure this was a win for him. He was fishing, and he landed a big one.

      Delete
    4. ...and also, that the "prize" was not to deny Sessions his confirmation- which was unlikely- but to prevent him from stonewalling an investigation of these matters. Nice piece of work.

  5. “In our view, the modern-day Democratic Party is involved in similar conduct. We've increasingly shown that we can't win elections or convince the public concerning our basic beliefs. So we pray instead for the chance to get our rivals locked up” writes Bob.

    No doubt. Republicans have tried it, Democrats have tried it, but it always ends up a fiasco. Hey… Let’s get the “media” on our side!

    So is the mainstream media on the Democrats’ side? Of course not, they’re simply chasing scandal to up their ratings. They’re just filler for advertising, masterfully employed by Trump in the gd, effing four-year election cycle.

    Hey, maybe they’re trying to bite back at Trump! He’s so mean to them.

    Oddly enough, just like Bob.

    They’re both right, of course, to be mean. The pabulum that is our modern-day main-stream media exposed here every day is worthy of contempt.
    And Trump is like any other politician, he doesn’t want scrutiny – poor as it is – so he’s being pre-emptive by employing the “mainstream media is all lies” thing, since the Republicans have been so successful in describing it that way.

    Much like Bob.

    Trump is right, in the wrong way – sort of like Tea-Partiers. I think Bob is right in the right way. The media has failed us lo these many years, and we are the poorer for it.

  6. Mr. Somerby seems to have left out (oversight, perhaps?) the flat-out lie, in response to another Franken question:"do you know of any member of the campaign meeting with the Russians?" to which now-AG Sessions responded, "No". note, Sen. Franken didn't ask what might have been discussed at any meeting, just asked if they'd met. AG Sessions, by his own admission, did meet with members of the Russian gov't, at least twice. the first time, they appear to have bumped into each other at the GOP convention, chatted for a few moments, then went on. probably asked about the wife and kids. the second time was an actual meeting, at which we have no idea what was discussed. however, what was discussed is actually irrelevant to the question at hand, which was, did they have any meetings with Russian officials, during the campaign?, not what did they discuss at said meetings. it's now obvious that then Sen. Sessions told Sen. Franken a bald faced lie, when he responded to that question.

    why this seems unclear to Mr. Somerby is a question only he can answer. maybe, he isn't aware of the question/answer? maybe, he doesn't think it's important, though why he would think that is a mystery. the fact remains, now AG Sessions did, most emphatically, lie to Sen. Franken, under oath, during his confirmation hearing. nothing Mr. Somerby can say will change that.

    before you accuse others of "selective quotationing", you should review your own first.

    1. I think Sessions weasels out of this "lie" because of the "members of the campaign" part of the question. He claims that he was not, at the time he met with the Russians, a member of the campaign, and he could deny knowing about any other meetings.

  9. Bob Somerby, just come out as the conservative Republican you really are. All, and I mean ALL your bile is reserved for our so-called liberals on tv. It's often entertaining.

    Hey Bob Somerby- why is it that you NEVER EVER say a word about Fox News? You NEVER say anything about that egregious propaganda channel. No, you prefer to shoot fish in a barrel. Maybe your attacks on "liberal" channels would have more weight if you occasionally got off your ass and critiqued the horrendous right-wing channels like Fox News.

    But you never, ever do that, Bob. You never say a word about Fox News. Why is that? You love to mangle Rachel and Lawrence O'Donnell if they misstep or say the wrong thing, but you never ever manage to mention the gigantic channel pumping right-wing propaganda into our lives every hour of every day. Why do you never ever mention Fox News, Bob?

    2. Lol. I ought to note that Bob Somerby's comments section is freely infested with weird troll spam ads from sex sites, and no one on his site does anything about it.

      And you say to me, "Please stop posting nonsense in this blog's comment section." Uh, how about you go fuck yourself? In the ear or the face? It doesn't matter. Go fuck yourself.

  10. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Cora L. Sanchez from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

My Husband divorce me 2 years ago to live with another woman and i have try to let go of him but i could not, so i try to do many things to get him back and he refuse to come back to me. I visit a forum one day for tips to get him back and there is saw a lady testifying of how Prophet Lucky helped he to get her man back after he was tie down with a spell by another woman and Prophet Lucky was the one that help her. Although I never believed in spiritual work I reluctantly tried him because I was desperate and i contact him and explain my problems to him, to my greatest surprise Prophet Lucky helped me to bring back my man after 2 days and now my relationship is now perfect just as he promised.

  16. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

  17. My name is loveth anetor I live
    in California
    THE GREAT dr alexzanderhightemple BROUGHT
    MY HUSBAND BACK TO ME IN
    JUST A ONE DAY.
    i got married 4months ago. My
    husband and I have been
    living a very happy and lovely
    life. So as time went on, I
    began to notice this strange
    attitude that he was
    possessing. He was now going
    out with other girls, to the
    extent that he was no longer
    picking up my calls, and he
    was not even sleeping in my
    house anymore. I became
    confused and didn't know what
    to do anymore. So i
    became worried and stranded,
    that brought so many
    thoughts into my mind, because I
    have never experienced
    a thing like this before in my life.
    So I decided to visit a spell
    caster, to see if he can help
    me out. So immediately I went
    to the internet, where I
    saw an amazing testimony of a
    spell caster who brought
    someone's ex lover back,so I
    contacted him immediately
    and I explained to him all my
    problems and he told me
    that it will be very easy for him
    to solve, compare to the
    ones he has done before. And he
    also gave me some
    proof to be really sure of her
    work, and he assured me
    that my husband will come back
    to me immediately after
    he is through with the spell
    casting. And also he told me
    to put all my trust in him and I
    really obeyed him.
    So it was 8:00 am on the next
    morning, when I was about
    going to work, when i received
    my husband's call, and he
    told me that he was coming back
    home, and he apologized
    to me, and told me that he is
    very sorry for the pain that
    he has cost me. And after some
    hours later, he really came
    back home, and that was how we
    continued our marriage
    with lots of love and happiness,
    and our love was now
    stronger than how it were
    before.
    And these great man also told
    me that once my heart
    desire has been granted unto me
    that i should go and
    testify of his work right here on
    the internet. Right now I
    am the happiest woman on earth
    today as I am writing
    this testimony, and I want to
    really thank
    dr alexzander for
    bringing back my
    husband, and for bringing joy and
    love to my family.so you
    all there having dificulties or the
    other don,t worry every
    thing will be fine
    So my greatest advice for you
    out there who your husband
    or your wife is acting strange or
    behaving the same way
    like this, or you have any
    problem with your relationship or
    anything related to do with spell
    casting, is for you to go
    and visit this great man anytime,
    and i assure you that
    she will be of help to you, and I
    am 100% sure that he
    will solve it out.once again
    contact him on these email
    now..and your problem we be all over because I really trust him as the best spell caster in the world.alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com or http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com
