According to US spy agencies Russia's ambassador reported that he had discussed campaign related matters with Jeff Sessions, which Sessions had denied under oath. Oops.

Courtesy of WaPo: 

Russia’s ambassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the embattled attorney general, according to current and former U.S. officials. 

Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said that the meetings were not about the Trump campaign. 

One U.S. official said that Sessions — who testified that he has no recollection of an April encounter — has provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration. 

Sessions has said repeatedly that he never discussed campaign-related issues with Russian officials and that it was only in his capacity as a U.S. senator that he met with Kislyak.

Uh oh, it appears that the Keebler Elf is busted.

But why is this just coming out now?

Apparently the talk around the water cooler is that Trump is trying to force Sessions to quit so that he can appoint another Attorney General who does NOT have to recuse himself from the Russia investigations, and who can then provide oversight.

Or if that proves insufficient, can fire Robert Mueller for some fabricated reason to be determined later.

In short, this is all about Russia.

Of course Trump is attempting to deflect any talk of his involvement.
Oh yeah, that should take them right off the scent.

    A (FOIA) to obtain a 56-page legal memo which concludes a sitting President can be indicted.
    Independent Counsel Ken Starr commissioned the 1998 memo, which was written by prominent conservative legal mind Ronald Rotunda.
    “It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president’s official duties,” the memo concludes. “In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law.”
    While this memo is said to be the most thorough government analysis of the constitutional question, Ken Starr was not the first special counsel to reach such a conclusion.

    I think there is more to this story than what the Russians said during an NSA recorded conversation. My thought all along has been that Trump has redoubled his efforts aimed at throwing Sessions out.

    It's amazing to see and watch the folks that Trump has picked to have around him. Every damn one of them breaks the law and include his own family members.

    IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH is the ONLY answer. Get his hind end out of the White House. He does NOT represent me!

    He's got a lot of damned nerve talking about legalities. If he wants to go tit for tat, he'll lose.

    It is somewhat of a guilty pleasure to awaken in the morning and see he's gone off on another tweet tirade. May he have not one moment's peace.

      I suggest Trump hates his life as potus. He is coming across as not being a happy camper. I'm sure he never thought he'd be under so much scrutiny and he hates it!

      God, but I hope he resigns or is impeached. He's a detriment to America and is in now way qualified to be potus!

    No matter what he always goes back to Clinton.

    Next, he was back to accusing Clinton of colluding with Russia:

    1. Anonymous10:07 AM

      ALWAYS Clinton or Obama because he's got nothing, and knows it.

    2. Anonymous11:21 AM

      Both President Clinton and President Obama are far superior to Trump and he knows it. Drives him nuts too!

      Trump is such a little boy/man ego wise. What a joke and idiot he has turned out to be!

      I doubt "but other people do it" holds up in court.

    4. Anonymous12:53 PM

      Everything that Trump is guilty of, he accuses Hillary Clinton and President Obama of having done first. Trump is so unbelievably infantile. When Putin first discovered Trump, he must have been elated and now, just look how far Putin's gotten with his orange puppet . . . .

    5. Anonymous5:06 PM

      I believe part of the reason he keeps blaming Clinton and Obama, besides the fact that is the way he operates, is to keep his fans fired up.

      He can't get over the fact that he was elected by a minority of the voters.

    Who Leaked Sessions Info, And Why Can't Trump Fire People?
    "It is worse and you're asking the question from The Godfather: qui bono, who benefits?" Ari Melber said.

    "As you said in the top of your setup, this comes at a time that Donald Trump is putting pressure on Jeff Sessions -- not for immigration or policy issues, but how his tenure may be affecting Donald Trump. And so there is that question -- I think a fair one -- about whether this current official is trying to help the president or match the president's criticism of Jeff Sessions.
    "Of course, the ultimate irony there, there, would obviously be a White House that says there's nothing wrong with any contacts with Russia, now the problem is that Jeff Sessions had a meeting on Russia, so obviously there's no internal logic there."
    But Melber also brought up another political point.

    “It is proper, constitutional, and legal for a federal grand jury to indict a sitting president for serious criminal acts that are not part of, and are contrary to, the president’s official duties,” the Starr office memo concludes. “In this country, no one, even President Clinton, is above the law.”

      They need to ram the 'laws' down Trump's anus mouth and cart him off to jail so that Americans never see or hear from again. It cannot happen fast enough.

      He is a detested man in his own country - by the majority, Donald!

      Let Americans vote on indicting Trump and family. All of them and all their guilty minions.

      Yeah, I'm a russian troll, losers.

      The Washington Post had this story in June. Pretty well established. Gryphen is suggesting that Mueller wouldn't want this out there, but I beg to differ. He basically gave Sessions job security. Cause now if Trump fires him, it's basically proof that the allegation is true and that he did indeed collude with Russia. Also, then trump has no influence over one of his co-conspirators and Sessions would be much more likely to spill the beans. So, yeah, dumb.

      But I disagree with you, so I'm a troll.

      Just because you're not smart enough to follow what's going on….

      Yeah, 11:50 AM, so what's he going to do now? Painted into a corner, and any replacement just makes him look even more the fool.

      Scaramucci? Maybe I'm too old but I hoot at every punk he brings in to credit what he stands for. There is no defense.

    The way things are quickly developing now, we are headed for a bloody civil war ending up with a regime change and the guilty treasonous snakes seeking political asylum in Russia. The question is when will someone or some groups say enough is enough and lead us out of Trump and First Family's treasonous acts?

      Civil war, eh? This time the north secedes and joins Canada.

    Trump is, at this point, a raving madman. He really needs to be locked up - for a very long time.
    PS. I do feel sorry for Barron. Just being in the same abode as his father must be extremely distressing. I have no sympathy for the third wife; she signed on and shared in his malevolence during the campaign.

    1. Anonymous3:00 PM

      I would think Barron is kept far away from the Don with all his bad habits. I wouldn't want my child seeing how he eats on a daily basis. I think she calls the boy'little Donnie'.

      How could you have the boy eating healthy as he is watching his father eat junk food?

      Little Donnie is said to be smart. His mother is teaching him about cyber bullying. If he knows about his father on the internet, how confusing is that?

    2. Anonymous5:11 PM

      I think what little donnie eats is the least of Baron’s problems.

      I would bet the farm that trump mentally abuses that kid.
