Jeff Sessions: I Have Never Lied About Russia! [VIDEO]

The Associated Press reports:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a raised voice and defiant tone, strongly defended himself Tuesday against allegations that he had misled members of Congress about his knowledge of communications between Russians and associates of President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.

“In all of my testimony, I can only do my best to answer all of your questions as I understand them and to the best of my memory,” Sessions told the House Judiciary Committee. “But I will not accept, and reject, accusations that I have ever lied under oath. That is a lie.”

    Sure, Jan.

  • Lazycrockett

    So the entire Obama Administration was behind the plot to give Russia all of the Uranium in the World!!!

  • HZ81

    Um, except that time under oath.

  • Kelly Lape

    Let’s unpack this a little. Papadopolous says Sessions “shut him down” on Russia. It seems that any further conspiracy regarding Russia would then be routed around Mr. Sessions during the campaign. If Mr. Sessions is being truthful now (highly unlikely) then AG Sessions should be launching his own investigation into the Trump Campaign to clear his name.

    Fortunately we call all see the tiny little liar for who he is and may rest comfortably knowing AG Sessions will spend his time taking medicine from children rather than restoring the rule of law to our nation. As an Alabama Senator about to have his former seat occupied by a Child Molester, AG Sessions probably feels he can rest easy knowing he won’t be the worst Senator AL ever had.

      That’s only because he lies to himself about not lying. It’s just easier than the painful truth which would feel uncomfortable. And anyhow ‘christians’ are automatically saved by the blood of … so they can Lie as much as they want to and say it is the Truth with a capital T.

      Roy Moore has perfected this method of getting the Truth out to everybody, or at least everybody who counts in his circles in ‘Bama.

      And that current brouhaha deflects some of the attention from Beauregard, an authentic American Traitor, and (detested) assistant to the Liar-in-Chief

      while I agree he lied, with Congress and the White House in the hands of Republicans and Trump, I don’t think he’ll suffer any consequences — certainly not the jail time he deserves.

      • Miji

        There’s also the argument that (as much as we hate to) it may be best to keep him in place for now as it protects Rosenstein from being over-ridden by an un-recused AG that could mess with Mueller.

    A new Quinnipiac poll finds President Trump’s approval rate at 35% to 58%, near his record low.

    Also interesting: Just 40% of voters say Trump is fit to serve as president, while 57% say he is not fit.

    By a 51% to 38% margin, Americans would like to see Democrats win control of the House of Representatives in 2018. By a 52% to 39% margin, they would like to see Democrats win control of the Senate.

        Yuppers. Who puts that in the memo line, unless it was intentional to create distraction or simply fluster investigators.? One of the payments did go to the Russian embassy in Washington DC.

        “After discovering the $30,000 transfer to the embassy in Washington, Citibank launched a review of other transfers by the Russian foreign ministry. It unearthed dozens of other transactions with similar memo lines. Compliance officers in Citibank’s Global Intelligence Unit flagged them as suspicious, noting that it was unable to determine the financial, business, or legal purpose of the
        transactions.”

  • trouble94114

    Wow. He really is begging Senator Franken to politely rip him to shreds. Suggestion for Sessions, when engaging in a battle of wits, it’s always helpful if you bring more than just the nit.

    And since Papadopoulos has already testified under oath to Mueller regarding the conversations about Russia, Sessions doesn’t have too many options regarding his explaination(s). (I’m stupid or, I am not an astute enough lawyer to realize that…was important, aren’t really going to help him out here) And I’ve no doubt that Papadopoulos sang like the proverbial canary regarding the content of those meetings.

    • clay

      plus Gorman, who was Papdopoulos’ boss and Session’s assistant.

  • Talisman

    Except ya did.

  • UrsusArctos 🐻

    I keep waiting for him to answer “Define what the meaning of is is ‘lie’ is, so I can answer with a completely nonsensical non sequitur”

  • David Walker

    Judging from her expression, the honorable Mrs. Weasel isn’t buying it either.

  • So Sessions doesn’t “remember” the Papadopoulos meeting, but he must have told Papadopoulos that “he was not authorized to represent the Campaign with the Russian Government, or any other foreign government for that matter.”

    So they’re saying:
    1. They were dumb enough to mention Russian Collusion out loud. (I believe this because they were dumb enough to email about it and create a written record.)
    2. Sessions hears this conversation about foreign collusion and forgets about. (If he really forgot the conversation, it makes me wonder what was truly so illegal as to make treason seem trivial.)
    3. Sessions was in a position high enough to dictate who was authorized to speak on behalf of the campaign. But he wasn’t important enough to be in on the some of the most critical decision of the campaign.

    Listen carefully to Session’s testimony, which the Senate Committee Democrats seem to have missed. He said that he had “no direct contact with Russians, except meeting with the Russian ambassador”. That doesn’t mean he didn’t have contact with third party go-betweens. “Your honor…I didn’t rob the bank myself…I had someone else do it for me. Therefore, I am totally innocent”.
