Sessions Is Walking On Thin Ice, New Documents Reveal More Lies He Told Congress
This week special counsel Robert Mueller brought fear to Donald Trump, his administration, and his former campaign. New court documents revealed by Mueller showed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions made false testimony to Congress regarding his activities during President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and White House transition.
Sessions failed to say that he was present at a March 2016 meeting at which he vetoed a suggestion that then-candidate Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin
According to CNN, Sessions declined to reveal his participation in the meeting “despite a persistent set of questions from Democrats and some Republicans about Russia during multiple hearings on Capitol Hill.”
“The new information,” wrote CNN’s Manu Raju, Evan Perez, and Marshall Cohen, “is renewing attention to how forthcoming Sessions has been with Congress.”
Back in June, when Sessions was questioned by Senators, he told them he had no knowledge of “anyone connected to the Trump campaign” communicating with Russian operatives, nor was he aware of “any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States.”
According to the report, Sessions had meetings with Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak that he later lied about under oath.Sergei Kislyak that he later lied about under oath.
