Since Democrats will never accept President Trump, Sessions should recuse himself. Not resign. This is what speaker Ryan is suggesting. Me too.

They don't know that portion. Sessions maintains he met about something else and the news is maintaining a position of ambiguity.


I heard it was about golf and grandchildren.

What?

Who is claiming they have a conversation recorded anyway?


The NSA or FBI could have very easily intercepted an intelligence summary from Kislyak to Moscow describing his meetings and conclusions etc.

Not doubt Sessions number one priority today is figuring out what they know and don't know, so he knows how to safely spin this.

Also here for those that trust no one but Fox News..


Sessions, Russian ambassador spoke twice during presidential campaign

www.foxnews.com...



Considering it was part of his job to speak to diplomats this is another non story.


How so?

Of the 20 out of 25 colleagues on the Senate Armed Services Committee that have thus far responded to queries from the press, NONE of them have met with Kislyak in the past year.

What interest does the Senate Armed Services Committee have in sharing or discussing their business with Russia?

Why wasn't the committee or ANY of his Senate Colleagues informed of his meetings if they were related to the Committee?

Why did he deny under oath that he had those conversations and meetings?


WHy? Well any number of reasons. Maybe talking about war games coming up so as to not start a war for one maybe?

Any proof he said anything to do with his work at the SAC comittee?

ALso If he was head Why would he have to inform his Subordinates of a meeting?

ALso Specifically post his testimony related to that where he lied. Oh and th estatements before and immediatly after so theres no room for interpretation please.

Did jess sessions lie under oath and pergure himself?


Some of the same liberal law professors and journalists who thought Hillary should be President after lying to Congress about hiding emails and who also praised Clapper’s “independence” after he repeatedly lied to Congress about NSA spying, now attack Attorney General Sessions under a bogus claim of “lying” to Congress. There is no basis to suggest Sessions committed any crime at all for doing his job as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee.

Sessions, as a Senator on the Armed Services Committee, met with over 20 ambassadors in 2016. One of them was the Russian ambassador. There is no evidence, at all, Sessions met with the ambassador to review Trump campaign strategy, or anything of the sort. The suggestion that our Senators should not be meeting with representatives of foreign governments is ludicrous, especially coming from people who championed the Clinton Foundation meeting with foreign governments frequently to fund their Clinton Foundation and personal enrichment.

The criminal law only prohibits lying to Congress under two statutes — 18 USC 1621 ands 18 USC 1001. Section 1621 requires a person “willfully and contrary” to a sworn oath “subscribe a material matter” which is both false and the person knows to be false. Section 1001 is basically the same, without certain tribunal prerequisites: it also requires the government prove a person willfully made a materially false statement. This requires three elements: first, a false statement; second, the false statement be “material”; and third, the false statement be made “knowingly” and “willfully.” A statement is not false if it can be interpreted in an innocent manner. A statement is not material if it is not particularly relevant to the subject of the inquiry. Willfully is a very high standard of proof: it requires the person know they are committing the crime, and do so anyway. None of the three exist as to Sessions.

In short No he didnt Do anything wrong.

DOJ officials...ironically people that report to Sessions.

It also opens the question of whether Sessions himself is the subject of a DOJ investigation...

He needs to recuse himself...he cannot be both a subject of inquiry and the investigator.

Frankly his refusal thus far to recuse himself makes him look guilty of something, like his appointment hinges on his ability to squash inquiries into Russian interference.

Again...hell...Loretta Lynch just chatted up Bill Clinton on the Tarmac between flights and she recused herself the moment people said it looked bad.

When GOP congressman Chaffetz, who made his career hunting HRC says this? You gotta recuse yourself..


Minutes later, House Oversight and Government Reform committee chairman Jason Chaffetz joined McCarthy’s call, tweeting that “AG Sessions should clarify his testimony and recuse himself.”

If "anyone else" (ya know what I mean) had lied about this.

It would be like another explosion of Mt. Tambora.

Literally everything you just said is based on zero evidence.

Baseless claims and an inability to accept outcomes and take responsibility or accountability is why Hillary and the liberals lost in a landslide.

Did the Russians also ensure the sweeping Republican victories in the congressional elections?

If the liberals keep this up they will continue to lose.

Or they saw Kislyak enter Sessions office.
. . .
During the campaign season.
. . .
When Sessions was stumping for trump
. . .
After suspecting Russia's involvement in the hacking of the DNC
...
They should say when this starts to sound suspicious.
