Did Christmas come early for the cannabis industry?
Jeff Sessions lied under oath and should be forced to step down from the position of United States Attorney General…
Today, the Justice Department said that Sessions had two conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the presidential campaign.
This type of contact should not only require him to recuse himself from an investigation into Russian interference in the election.
Mislead Everyone at his Confirmation Hearing
During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions did not disclose these communications when he was asked. Instead, he said he had not communicated with the Russians
At the confirmation hearing, Senator Al Franken asked Sessions about the allegations of contact between Russia and Trump aides during the 2016 election.
Sessions told Senator Franken that he was unaware of any contact.
In January, Senator Patrick Leahy, a Judiciary Committee Democrat, asked Sessions in a written questionnaire 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.
Sessions said no.
Interacted with Russia’s Ambassador Weeks Prior to the Election
The Justice Department’s view of this matter is different.
Sessions had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors while serving as a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee during the last year. He had two separate interactions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during this time.
One of the visits was in September, less than two months before the election.
Lying Under Oath
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi accused Sessions of lying under oath and demanded that he resign.
Sessions issued the following statement last night:
“I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”
This guy is clearly lying…
