Under a cloud of scrutiny Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any current or future investigation into the ties between Donald Trump and Russia.

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, facing a chorus of criticism over his contacts with the Russian ambassador, recused himself Thursday from any current or future investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. His conversations with the ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, came amid suspected Russian hacking directed at Hillary Clinton’s campaign. 

Mr. Sessions said he made the decision after meeting with senior career officials at the Justice Department. He said he would not take part in any investigations “related in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States.” 

He also strongly denied that any of his conversations with Russian officials were related to the presidential campaign. And he said he did not intend to deceive the Senate when he said he had no such meetings with Russian officials.

Sure, whatever you say buddy.

At this point I am just so jaded that simply do not believe a fucking word that comes out of this administration.

And there are those on the other side of the aisle who seem to share my lack of confidence.
I can only imagine the shit storm happening behind the scenes in the Trump White House right now.

I wonder if some of the staff are now taking bets on which domino will fall next?

    On this day of yet more ugliness in the Trump admin, as well as a silly-looking bloated Trump in a bomber jacket, Pres Obama receives the Kennedy profile in Courage award from Caroline Kennedy. Trump's Tuesday afterglow was short-lived b/c of the latest reports involving Russia, and now BO has taken away from Trump's military-style stunt. Trump has got to be seething. Surely the tweeting will happen soon.

      Congratulations to President Obama on receiving the Kennedy award! There is no way Trump will ever match the greatness of President Obama!

      I missed seeing a 'bloated' Trump in a bomber jacket! Where is that photo? Would love to see it put up on this blog for reference.

      tRump is one fugly man/child. That ridiculous hat pulled down over his eyes, no neck, bloated stomach, slow walk. The LUNATIC has taken over the asylum. Where was first wife/daughter Ivanka? Usually, she is right beside him. Probably in charge of his meds. I am sick of her, too. Constantly getting her Botoxed face on camera. Beavis and Butthead tRump are just lining their pockets behind the scenes. Donald Jr. (Beavis) was paid $50,000 to meet in Paris with a Russian envoy, among others. The entire crew is dirty, up to their eyeballs.

    But, but, but !!! he claimed the allegations, whatever they were, are false.

    That didn’t work so now he changes his story and wanna bet he remembers the whole conversation.

    He lied and he got caught, their strategy is to have him recluse himself, making it look like they are giving up something.

    He needs to go. I am sure he is guilty of much more.

    The DOJ has just lost all credibility if he doesn’t step down or get removed.

    He will be telling the WH what is going on in the investigations.

      Kick his white ass out of his seat immediately - he has lost ALL credibility as have the majority of Republicans currently holding office in D.C.

      What a fucking mess! Can you imagine if it had been the Democrats going through this? They'd have been put on trial by now for Christ's sake.

      Next election cycle - vote ALL Republicans out of office that are up for reelection - across the country, but assuredly in the U.S. Congress. They are detrimental to our health!!!

      Hillary went through an 11 HOUR ordeal, televised, and she told the TRUTH. Guess it is different for rethugs. I think Ryan and McConnell are in on this too. They KNEW about Russia last year.

    I think Sessions needs to resign; recusing himself is not enough, not in this vindictive, lawless administration. Imagine trying to investigate the Russian connection to the Trump campaign and administration with the likes of Sessions, Bannon and others of his ilk looking on.

      Here you go 2:04, since you have a hard time understanding:

      "Could Attorney General Jeff Sessions face legal trouble?"

      “That is a very high bar,” CBS News’ chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford said. “I see no way Attorney General Sessions would be prosecuted for his testimony. To be convicted of lying to Congress, you have to give testimony that you know is false.”

    It's gotten to the point with this endless stream of tRump related crap that reading a piece about the Palin's hucksterism and graft and sheer idiocy would seem like light entertainment. And isn't that a sad commentary on the societal and political shift that's taken place over a few short months that somehow seem like years.
    tRump is making George W look like a beacon of reason and statesmanship.

      "Cherokee"? So, you are O.K. with the orange shitgibbon and his drunk, unwashed President Bannon being in charge of the country? They are shaming the US. The entire WORLD knows the election was orchestrated by Putin, and those blackmail tapes (of tRump being peed on)Nobody trusts this country anymore. One crook after another joins the mob in the administration. They make the Mafia look like a frat group.

      Lol. That is pretty far fetched trying to spin the context of that testimony into a lie. Guess what, Senators get to talk to ambassadors of foreign nations, they do it all the time. Isn't that the purpose of Ambassadors. This attempted spin is beyond making the Democrats look foolish. He is not going anywhere and there will not be a perjury charge.

      why lie about it, if it is business as usual? Does he have dementia, and forgot? The gop covered for Reagan, when he was slipping away. We had no president for several years, unless you count Nancy as being in charge. Had he been a democratic president, the gop would have been screaming on TV worse than they do now. Sessions LIED under oath.

    3. Except he wasn't there as a senator nor was he there in his position on the Arms Committee. His entire trip was paid for out of campaign funds. He was there as a trump surrogate and campaign advisor.

  19. And now that hypocrite Pence was found to be using a private e-mail account for official business when he was governor. AND IT WAS HACKED! He's saying it's not the same as Hillary using a private server, plus he didn't have access to classified documents.

    If you ask me Hillary was smart to set up that server since it appears to be the only government and private account that WASN'T hacked.

    Nothing like a lying Republican hypocrite to spin and twist.

    If only they would twist in the wind while the vultures picked at their innards.,

  20. And there's more.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/03/02/exclusive-two-other-trump-advisers-also-spoke-russian-envoy-during-gop-convention/98648190/

    "At least two more members of the Trump campaign’s national security officials also spoke with Kislyak at the event, and several more Trump national security advisers were in attendance.

    It's unknown what the Trump campaign officials who spoke with the ambassador – J.D. Gordon and Carter Page – discussed with him. Those who took part in the events in Cleveland said it is not unusual for presidential campaign teams to interact with diplomats.

    However, the newly-revealed communications further contradict months of repeated denials by Trump officials that his campaign had contact with officials representing the Russian government."

    I don't care how innocent these conversations were. The fact is they took place and the Trump administration LIED and said they didn't.

  21. You see what happens when you lie and attention is drawn to you?

    "Records show attorney general used campaign account for travel expenses to Cleveland, where he met Russian envoy"

    "He spoke about Trump's campaign AT THE EVENT."

    So, another LIE.

    He didn't use official funds, he used his own campaign funds.

    So he didn't speak with the Russian in his official capacity. And he was a part of Trump's campaign if he spoke about it while there. He was a senior advisor to the Trump campaign. He wasn't there as a member of the Armed Services Committee.

    Just another lie from a lying liar. I hope Franken puts his ass in a sling and invites all to play piñata.
