    Evidence mounts that Sessions perjured himself

    It grows.

    Jeff Sessions perjured himself under Al Franken questioning

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is suddenly facing an active dilemma.

    A guilty plea signed last month by one of his former Trump campaign underlings revealed this week shows he likely perjured himself during his confirmation hearing — and he doesn’t have a good option to wriggle out of it.
    Sessions told Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) at the January hearing that he was “not aware” of evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government during the campaign, according to the New Republic.
    He walked back those claims last month during another Senate hearing, telling Franken he “conducted no improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding the campaign or any other item facing this country.”
    But court filings, and a new CNN report, show he was aware of evidence that at least one campaign associate was in contact with Russia.
    George Papadopoulos, who served on the foreign policy advisory committee that Sessions oversaw, pleaded guilty Oct. 5 to lying to FBI agents in January and February.
    The guilty plea Papadopoulos signed shows the campaign adviser communicated with Russians promising stolen campaign information on Hillary Clinton, and he tried repeatedly to set up meetings between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    I thought that was already established.

    I guess I've been out of the loop.

    Maybe it will be taken more seriously this time. I thought he went back in front of Congress and "corrected" himself. But yes, now it seems the guilty plea of George PeePeedopolus just might be Jeffersonian Beanturd Sessions, The Third's undoing.

    Is Rosenstein going to let Seesions off the hook in exchange for Rosenstein being let off the hook for something he did for the Russians in the Uranium deal? I think they are both sell outs to the Russians.You know who is shit out of luck, the American people.

    This is new

    The credibility of Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been called into serious question after the Justice Department unsealed a plea deal taken by a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign.

    The documents revealed that former adviser George Papadopoulos attended a "national security meeting in Washington D.C.," on March 31, 2016, along with Trump, Sessions and others. In that meeting, Papadopoulos "introduced himself," and explicitly stated "in sum and substance, that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and [Russian] President Putin."

    Trump tweeted a picture of the meeting the day it occurred, and he, as well as Sessions, sat at opposite heads of the table. Papadopoulos is pictured to the left of Sessions in the middle of the table.
