The Trump-Russia plot thickens: Sessions deceptive regarding contact with Russia

Looks like newly appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in trouble. During his confirmation hearings, Sessions failed to disclose two meetings with Russian envoy Sergey Kislyak. In fact, he denied any contact with Russia during his confirmation hearings, which are conducted under oath.

Now he says, “I never met with any Russian officials to discuss the issues of the campaign.” “…to discuss issues of the campaign.” Hmmm.

Sort of like saying, “I never went to Disneyland,” and then saying, “I never went to Disneyland to have fun,” when caught at Disneyland.

But you still went to Disneyland, asshole! And you lied about it. Incredibly lame.

The Trump-Russia connection is too big to ignore, but it’s also too big to hide. With Jeff Sessions as Attorney General the Trump administration has a large amount of influence with the progress of the investigation. Now that we know that sessions is shady, we need to get him out and conduct an independent bipartisan investigation.

I get the feeling that in America  we are generally averse to prosecuting high-level officials for wrongdoing. Part of this is the “rank has its privileges” mentality, as with the case of David Petraeus, but also, I think, we are generally unwilling to accept the fact that corruption happens here. After all, this is America. Correct, it is not supposed to happen here, but it does. You can’t molly coddle the public with a false sense of righteousness if justice is to prevail.

Jeff Sessions, Michael Flynn and anyone else involved in this affair need to be investigated and prosecuted no matter what their positions may be, up to and including the President himself.
