Daines, Gianforte clearly support controversial AG Sessions
HELENA -- At a time when Democrats and Republicans in Washington D.C. are calling for investigations into Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his shady connections to Russian officials, Montana’s Republican Senator Steve Daines and his buddy, New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte, remain squarely behind the controversial Trump cabinet member.
Not only is Senator Daines remaining behind Sessions, he offered a full-throttled endorsement of him.
“As Attorney General, he will faithfully defend the Constitution and enforce the rule of law.” -- Daines said.
Meanwhile, Greg Gianforte has said if he gets elected to represent Montana in Washington D.C. his only interest is in furthering the Trump agenda.
“ I am ready to head to Washington to stand with President Donald Trump” -- Gianforte said in a fundraising email
This comes at a time when multiple reports have surfaced that Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose conversations with Russian officials -- putting the safety of the country he promised he would protect in jeopardy.
“Our leaders in Washington D.C. are rightfully calling for investigations into the Trump Administration’s democracy-threatening connections with Russians, except of course, for Sen. Steve Daines,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Sen. Daines and Greg Gianforte have demonstrated they aren’t willing to be independent thinkers and offer a check-and-balance to President Trump and his dangerous agenda. Montanans deserve leaders in Washington D.C., not followers.”
