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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

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.
