If that portion is not known then how can anyone claim he lied?

That's why he needs to be investigated now. To see if he is lying or not.


If they catch sessions doing ANYTHING improper, shady,ect imo he needs to go.
How they catch him, to me, is just as important. Especially when the msm is making a big deal about the former administration "preserving" possible evidence that may be used in a future investigation.

Spying on our own citizens is in no way ok.

And we aren't spying on our own citizens. You made that accusation up.

LIKE FLYNN...the NSA was not monitoring Sessions...they were monitoring Kisylak, the chief Russian Diplomat/Spy Recruiter. They found out about Flynn via NSA taps on Kisylaks communications...not Flynns.

You do understand once they establish a us citizen is in the conversation they are NOT to record that portion UNLESS they have a fisa warrant against that specific us citizen?


Nope...You are conflating a normal warrant with a FISA warrant.

You do not find Americans spying for Russia by tapping the phone of Russian Spy Recruiters and hanging up when they call Americans.



Under that law, the target must be a foreigner “reasonably believed” to be outside the United States, and the court must approve the targeting procedures in an order good for one year. But a warrant for each target would thus no longer be required. That means that communications with Americans could be picked up without a court first determining that there is probable cause that the people they were talking to were terrorists, spies or “foreign powers.”

Not disclosing is not the same thing as LYING. If Sessions wasn't ASKED, there's no need of him disclosing every contact he had with officials of other nations. Democrats need to focus on 2018 and 2020. The months are ticking by...


Aside from putting your committment to the truth on the record here ... what part of this didn't sink in:




In January, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) asked Sessions for answers to written questions. “Several of the President-elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?” Leahy wrote. Sessions responded with one word: “No.”

Another alarmist hitpiece by the leftist press. Like all of them, it will turn out to be nothing with no wrong doing.

Expect this for the next 8 years. Just another distraction from Trump's speech. They can't have the news cover something positive for a week!

Obama and his cronies are just mad that the Russian kicked their a55 out of Syria. Trump should just remove all the sanctions and let the Democrats head explode. Imagine the potential of a USA and Russian alliance. They would be unstoppable.

You are mistaken.
The info can be gathered it just cannot be used. Once it is established it is an american citizen the data is protected. Unless there is a fisa warrant.

Your phone call analogy is good to use. If said call originates in russia no fisa warrant is needed. If said call goes to the usa and to an american citizen no fisa warrant is needed for the russian portion, but once it is established it is an american citizen the data/info from the american citizen is protected. They dont hang up they just cant use the info in an official capacity unless they get a fisa warrant.

That said, either the former admin got a fisa warrant against the new admin or someone in the ic leaked protected info.
Gathering info from the ic to use it against the opposing political party is what nixon did and was the basis for the fisa laws in the first place.

The last time it broke that a member of Trump's administration lied about talking to Russia, he resigned in disgrace.

Investigate away. I would really like to see where the info is coming from with all these un named sources.



And we aren't spying on our own citizens. You made that accusation up.

Then where did the info come from? How did our ic get this info on sessions?

Please.
"Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?”
The answer to that question is truthful. The ONE meeting was do to work as a senator and had nothing to do with the election.

Trump fired him for lying to the vice-pres, not for talking to a Russian ambassador.

So what I've seen essentially so far from some is ...

"It's okay that Sessions lied before Congress because Hillary did it."

"It's okay that Sessions lied before Congress because biased media outlets don't like Trump."

"It's okay that Sessions lied before Congress because they didn't ask him the right questions."

This is the ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES we're talking about here ... my god, how far we have fallen.

The part that matters is that Sessions potentially lied under oath. The same thing that Clinton's impeachment proceedings were based around.
