Okay a leftist hit piece I suppose but nevertheless I think it's important to view multiple sides of issue and Oliver is entertaining at the least.
I do like to see people's body language when they defend themselves and that is of value here imo. For those that can't view, the video shows Senator Frankin Asking Sessions about Russian ties . It also includes questioning former advisor Carter Page and Paul Manafort, Trumps campaign manager who resigned over his lobbying work in Ukraine for the pro-Russian government.

I am not saying Trump is guilty here, just adding additional perspective to a muddy issue.

Sessions reaction after he was done, basically lying under oath, was priceless.

I mean what an obvious non poker face that guy has!!

He was like a Mongoose or something looking around for danger.

LOLOLOL

You could almost thinking to himself "Wow, did that really work??? I'm like a jedi or something"

Can't watch the video....san someone possibly provide a flow explaining Mr. Oliver's connections discussed in the OP?

Most of what I see in this kind of thing is "7 degrees of Kevin Bacon" like in its connections. And its all discussed in a vacuum, without understanding how other billionaires interact globally, and how other elected officials interact globally. I think if you look at Trumps "ties" in relations to the rest of the government and crop of US billionaires....its much less sexy.

He's just showing Sessions reaction after answering the question posed by Al Frankin.

Frankin asks him about any connections to Russia or whatever.
Sessions says he has none, offers more info than even asked for.
Frankin says ok.

Then sessions starts looking around all wide eyed with a shocked look on his face. Even looks directly in the camera like a deer in the headlights.

It's hilarious the way he reacts. You really have to see it though.

Sessions: "I am unable to comment on that,"

Oh yes - the administration of transparency!!



It's time to make ATS great again and expose these people for what they are!

It's no wonder why Trump made phoney claims up regarding Obama wiretapping him.

He had to take the heat off of Sessions somehow!!

That was my impression too, the timing seems to fit.

It's also why there has been no WH response nor any proof offered by the man making the claims!

There is none!!

It looks like the Trump administration is in some trouble internally!

Best theory against Trump i've seen, honestly.

I wouldn't be shocked to find out it was either way, honestly. Obama weaponized the IRS....nothing is beneath him. But Trump is the worlds wealthiest BS artist.

Flip of the coin on this one from me.

John Oliver is spot on, as usual.

His show is the best thing to happen to HBO since the Game of Thrones.

Jeff Sessions on the other hand, is probably the worst thing to happen to the Dept. of Justice since it's inception.

I'm leaning towards it being true. Way too many people have fallen in Trumps administration for there to not be Russian ties.

Until I see evidence otherwise I'm pretty sure Trump is in on it. My question at this point, is if Pence was in on it too or if not, if he eventually became part of a coverup. While not a high chance, I think we have a shot of it being Paul Ryan running for reelection as President come 2020.

Yeah!!! I almost choked on that one!

But then, I can't think of a better description of how Jeff Sessions may have been conceived.
