Breaking: Attorney General Sessions Met with Russians, Lied Under Oath…”Lock Him Up!”

 Editor’s note:  This is a clearcut felony on the part of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, right here on video, lying under oath at his confirmation hearing.  His “explanation” is worse than a kid’s “the dog ate my homework.”  This guy is a felon and chief law enforcement officer of the United States.  Lock him up.

Then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) spoke twice last year with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Justice Department officials said, encounters he did not disclose when asked about possible contacts between members of President Trump’s campaign and representatives of Moscow during Sessions’s confirmation hearing to become attorney general.

One of the meetings was a private conversation between Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that took place in September in the senator’s office, at the height of what U.S. intelligence officials say was a Russian cyber campaign to upend the U.S. presidential race.

The previously undisclosed discussions could fuel new congressional calls for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 presidential election. As attorney general, Sessions oversees the Justice Department and the FBI, which have been leading investigations into Russian meddling and any links to Trump’s associates. He has so far resisted calls to recuse himself.

At his Jan. 10 Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) what he would do if he learned of any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of the 2016 campaign.

“I’m not aware of any of those activities,” he responded. He added: “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) is demanding US Attorney General Jeff Sessions surrender his post for “lying under oath” during confirmation hearings. Sessions had been asked about communications with Russians during the 2016 election.

Late Wednesday evening, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) released a statement calling on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign over statements he made to the Senate during his confirmation process.

“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate.  Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false,” Pelosi wrote.

Unnamed Justice Department officials told the Washington Post on Wednesday that Sessions spoke to Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak twice last year, which would contradict statements Sessions made as US senator during Senate hearings for his confirmation to the Attorney General post.

During his Senate judiciary committee hearing in January, Sessions told Senator Al Franken (D-Minnesota) that he “did not have communications with the Russians” after being asked what he would do if he found there had been conversations between individuals in the Russian government and the Trump campaign relevant to the election.

“I’m not aware of any of those activities,” Sessions said.

Sessions responded, “No,” when asked by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) if he’d had contact with anyone connected with the Russian government “about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?”

“He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign — not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee,” Sessions spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told the Washington Post.

The US intelligence community has assessed that Russia conducted cyber operations to benefit Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Russia has denied accusations of meddling in the 2016 US election, and the Trump administration and campaign has done the same against allegations it had ties to Russia.

  1. I doubt if Sessions and/or Trump will be forced out this soon. But before they are I hope they will blow the whistle on the Sandy Hook Hoax by Obama and Holder on down to most of Connecticut. They have all the FBI and CIA files on it as well as the book “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook” and some great videos by Barry Soetoro (Sloppy Sniper} and many others showing fake actors promoting gun control and getting free rides with Obama on AF1. The school was not even a functioning school that day. Sessions should not only force Obama to publicly apologize before the ghost writer finishes his $65 million book. Sessions should also prosecute all those fake parents making so much good easy fraudulent money off this scam from Go Fund Me. This scam was disgusting where pictures of older children were used at an earlier age. Our own CIA likely aided with this con.

  2. Sessions was asked if he had contact with Russians regarding the election Campaign. He said he did not, which apparently is accurate. He did have contacts with Russians in the course of his duties on the Senate Armed Forces Committee.
    They get rid of Flynn, who has a list of top pedophiles; now they go after the man who would arrest and prosecute DC pedos–which would leave the halls of Congress rather bare.
    VT has turned weird after the Trump victory, and I no longer trust them to be objective regarding his administration. Are the rumors that VT is a CIA operation true?

  3. “The previously undisclosed discussions could fuel new congressional calls for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 presidential election”

    Sweet, so how long is that going to take and more importantly, how much is that going to cost? German politicians were whining about similar BS and after a year long, multi-million dollar investigation, it was determined that it was indeed BS. I’ve heard months of nonstop allegations against Russia, day in and day out, with MSM and other proponents of the narrative regularly citing “anonymous intelligence officials” as their sources. How convenient.

    The so called intelligence community, news media and many others speculate endlessly about potential Russian involvement in the 2016 US election, but why does nobody seem to be concerned about Israel’s involvement in every US election? Because TV doesn’t pay attention to it and everyone here knows why that is. The obvious evidence that points to Trump being an Israeli stooge, is far more frightening than any of the allegations suggesting Trump might be a Russian stooge.

  4. Ever noticed that it is part of a politician’s education/bribery to stand in a pool of lies otherwise they would have chosen a different profession? That of a law professional or employee of the UN. Just kidding!
    So, if two liars (Dems/Reps) accuse each other to lie, who is telling the truth?
    Both of them, at least this is what a five year old would say – when asked.
    In USA, being just, full of honor and righteous to the bone you might slap one of the two on his/her wrist, include a huge tax payer funded compensation for loosing the job – and all is good again.
    JohnZ, you do realize what has happened to YOUR country?
    Who will that someone be to tell POTUS?
    A Russian President?

  5. Re: Europe in 38
    The same tribe of bankers and the same plan to drive their recalcitrant “people” back to the colony in Palestine.
    We are in the midst of “Our Turn” to be the “Evil Germans” of 1938.
    Ellen Browns public banking is the weapon that We Thee People need to arm ourselves with.

  6. Time to pull the plug on the swamp as the rancid and dying bottom-feeders turn into a slimy and poisonous putrescence of carp.
