Cherry Picking the Russian Hacking Issue

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

UC Irvine Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky has an op-ed in the Orange County Register giving his seal of approval to the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the allegation of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian intrusion into our election. As usual, Chemerinsky plays the partisan as he ignores the other aspects of the Russian issue.

I have no problem with having a special prosecutor appointed, but as usual, Chemo is only concerned with the aspects of this multi-headed monster that allege wrongdoing between Trump and /or his campaign insofar as the Russians are concerned. Chemo doesn’t care a whit about all the revelations regarding Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta, whose communications were apparently hacked into by the Russians and/or Wikileaks. Neither does he care about the unmasking of American citizens like Michael Flynn by Susan Rice and our intelligence agencies under Obama.

As for Sessions, the “communications” consisted of a requested meeting by the Russian ambassador in Sessions’ Senate office in the presence of others in his role as senator on the Foreign Relations Committee and a speech Sessions gave which was attended by the ambassador.

If Chemo wants to write as a partisan hack a’la Dick Durbin or Chuck Schumer, fine. To dress this op-ed up as a legal commentary is something else.
