Well, this is amazing.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice last year with the top Russian diplomat in Washington whose interactions with President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn led to Flynn’s firing, according to the Justice Department.
Sessions did not mention either meeting during his confirmation hearings when he said he knew of no contacts between Trump surrogates and Russians. A DOJ official said Sessions didn’t mislead senators during his confirmation.The revelation prompted key Democrats to call for Sessions’ resignation, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

But he said he didn’t … but now he apparently did? This is yet another member of the Trump administration that we know absolutely had contact with Russia. Calls for Sessions to recuse himself have come from both sides of the aisle but do we really think leadership will hold Sessions and Trump accountable?
Everything is fine.
