“I don’t recall; I don’t recall; I don’t recall.” This was Jeff Sessions most frequent response to questions when he ‘testified’ before the Senate Intelligence Committee. This brings to question his age. Is Sessions too old to do his job? He appears not to be able to remember anything, and that makes him unfit to hold public office.
His most egregious lie was when he claimed that he was unable to remember if he had a third meeting with Russian Ambassador/Spy, Sergey Kislyak. New information may offer proof that Sessions’ Russian connections are far more extensive than previously believed.
Richard Burt is a ‘lobbyist.’ One of his clients is the nation of Russia. He had several contacts with Sessions, and also assisted Trump in a foreign policy speech during his campaign.
“I did attend two dinners with groups of former Republican foreign policy officials and Senator Sessions,” Burt said.
Is Sessions a serial liar, our simply incompetent? Either way he is unqualified to be the Attorney General.
During the Senate hearings, John McCain asked Sessions if he ever had “any contacts with any representative, including any American lobbyist or agent of any Russian company” during the 2016 campaign, Sessions said he did not.
“I don’t believe so,” Sessions said.
These additional facts confirm that Sessions is a liar, and adds more proof that the entire Trump administration exists in an atmosphere filled with lies and misdirection.
Robert Mueller will surely discover several truths which Trump and his circle of sinners have attempted to hide. Trump colluded with Vladimir Putin during the election. Several staff members were in frequent contact with Russian agents. Trump laundered money for Russian Oligarchs through the purchase of real estate, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner was complicit. Trump is guilty of “obstruction of justice” regarding his “request” of James Comey to halt the investigation into Michael Flynn. Testimony by other Trump cronies will offer additional proof that Trump attempted to hide the truth.
Let’s not forget that Mike Pence is deeply involved in Trump’s cover-up, and is also unfit to be the president. In addition, lyin Paul Ryan has been in contact with Russian agents. The only qualified candidate in line for the presidency is likely Orin Hatch, who is “older than dirt,” and too senile to serve.
What a party!
One final question; I wrote about Trump’s efforts to launder money for Russian oligarchs months ago. Why is this fact only now revealed to the majority of the American people?
Please re-post; thank you.
