With the “outing” of Jeff Sessions’ two “meetings” with the Russian Ambassador by the Washington Post, it’s become clear that the liberal media will do anything, dig up any stone, use blow up any piece of news into a major scandal, in their efforts to take down the administration. I am now convinced that it’s time for me to talk, I need to fess up before I find myself on the cover of the Washington Post. Not only do I have proof that people who had contact with the Russians helped Donald Trump to win the presidency….well…I was involved and know other people who were involved.
The Sessions story is based on this exchange from his confirmation hearings:
Senator Franken: OK. CNN has just published a story and I’m telling you this about a news story that’s just been published. I’m not expecting you to know whether or not it’s true or not. But CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week that included information that quote, “Russian operatives claimed to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.” These documents also allegedly say quote, “There was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” Now, again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so you know. But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?
Senator Jeff Sessions: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn’t have — did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.
There was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer. Last year, the Senator had over 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, including the British, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Indian, Chinese, Canadian, Australian, German and Russian ambassadors. 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.
In his role as a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee he did have contact with the Russians twice. Once was at a Heritage Foundation party. Apparently Sessions spoke to a group of 50-plus ambassadors. When he was done speaking a smaller group of ambassadors approached Sessions. One of the ambassador’s was the Representative. Sessions spoke to the group not individually.
