Sen. Dick Blumenthal blasted for 'slander' at Sessions hearing
'A cheap shot by a hack politician who thinks he can lie about us'
Published: 15 hours ago

Operation Rescue, a pro-life organization that goes to extraordinary lengths to reduce abortion, on Tuesday called on Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., to apologize for his statements about the organization at the Senate confirmation hearing for Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., as U.S. attorney general.

Among other things, Blumenthal described Operation Rescue “as a group that advocates execution of abortion providers.”

“That was a cheap shot by a hack politician who thinks he can lie about us with impunity and without consequences in order to advance his political agenda,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“We are considering legal action to protect our good reputation,” said the group, which cooperated with an undercover investigation in 2015 revealing Planned Parenthood’s baby body-parts business.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Throughout his career, Attorney General Blumenthal has made statements which either directly noted that he served in Vietnam, or eluded to service in Vietnam. He also made no attempts to counter news stories and literature which he did not produce that stated that he served in Vietnam.

After announcing his run for the US Senate, it was discovered that Mr Blumenthal received five deferments to avoid enlisting and then finally received an appointment to a Marine reserve unit which never left the state. Attorney General has admitted that he did not serve in Vietnam and stated that he did not intend to mislead anyone about his service.
People like Hillary Clinton are the reason we have middle fingers.
