The dishonest mainstream media has been relentless in their attack on Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Their preferred weapon? Those pesky nefarious Russian connections, of course! By cleverly framing their questions and taking Sessions’ reply out of context, they deceived many in the public by making it appear that Sessions was contradicting himself. They even succeeded in making him recuse himself from any investigations into the ‘Russian connections’ during President Trump’s campaign. But now, Sessions has finally broken his silence on the issue.
Jeff Sessions is going public for the first time since his Press Conference over his meetings with the Russian Ambassador. AG Jeff Sessions is defending the response he gave to the Senate during his nomination hearing.
Sessions on Monday defended his decision not to mention his talks with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. while under oath during his confirmation hearing, a decision that eventually led to his recusal from his department’s probe into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election, per The Hill.
“My answer was correct,” Sessions wrote.
Jeff Sessions went on to say that he was answering a specific question posed by Sen. Al Franken during his January confirmation hearing about ongoing talks between Trump associates and Russian Ambassadors during the presidential campaign.
“I did not mention communications I had had with the Russian ambassador over the years because the question did not ask about them,” Sessions continued.
The Attorney General was asked whether he had “been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?”
“No,” Sessions responded.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said he was satisfied with Sessions’ response, and would not call him back to testify about his confirmation hearing.
“I appreciate Attorney General Sessions’ quick action to clear up confusion about his statement and I look forward to confirming the team who can help him carry out the functions of the department,” the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley, said in a statement.
