U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions can’t yet shake the malady that afflicts the president of the United States.
He is now lying through clenched teeth, just as Donald J. Trump does with such ease.
Sessions told the Christian Broadcast Network that the administration “never intended” to separate children from their parents as part of the government’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigration.
Yep. That’s what he told CBN’s David Brody.
Oh, but wait.
Just the other day he stood before the nation and cited Romans 13 — from the New Testament — as justification for doing the very thing he said he and his colleagues “never intended” to do. Romans 13 tells us how the Apostle Paul admonished others to obey the government; follow the law to the letter. Therein lies the justification, as Sessions cited it, for the policy that results in the arrest of illegal immigrants and the separation of children from their custody.
If you enter the nation illegally, he said, you will be arrested. If you smuggle children illegally with you, the government may take them away
How can the nation’s chief law enforcement officer lie so recklessly?
Hold on a second! I almost forgot. Donald J. Trump — the nation’s Liar in Chief — selected him for the job.
