I just watched a bunch of interviews of Trump supporters on CNN who were asked if it turns out that Jeff Sessions lied under oath should he resign.  The overriding sentiment was that he should get a pass because he is a patriot.  These were probably the same sort of people who were chanting 'Lock Her Up' whenever Trump and Sessions just mentioned Clinton's name.

Handsome men like Sessions always get a "pass".

Sessions is lifelong KLAN BAIT and they gave hin a pass on that. So they would just give him a pass on anything because he's one of their good old boys.

Trump supporters know their own kind.

BREAKING: AG Sessions recusing self from any current or future investigations related to campaigns for president of the US.

 

 

 

The administration and Sessions are hopeful this will eliminate the calls for a special prosecutor.  Meanwhile he will still be in charge of the agency that does the investigation.  Very hard to actually "recuse" yourself in a situation such as this when you are the boss of the people doing the investigation.

Smart move by Jeffy. Emphasize recusal so folks don't 

concentrate on the possibility that he lied to the Senate

during his confirmation hearings.

"In a November 5 letter posted on FoxNews.com that was signed by Sessions, he berated then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for not recusing herself from the Clinton email investigation, and called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate instead:....

 

Sessions doubled down on this claim during a November 6 interview on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, saying

 “We need an independent person, person that's not politically connected, that people in America can have confidence in to take over this investigation and make sure it's done correctly,....But there are some serious allegations here that the American people need to know are fully investigated”:

"Republicans are trying to advance the argument that Sessions was just doing his job when he met with the Russian ambassador twice during 2016, but it turns out he was the only member of the 2016 Armed Services Committee to do so.

 

Adam Entous, who broke the story about Sessions’s meeting with the ambassador as part of the Washington Post’s national security team, just put the kill shot in the Republican talking point that Sessions was just doing his job when he met twice with the Russian ambassador.

 

The team “reached out to all 26 members of the 2016 Armed Services Committee to see who met with Russian envoy Kislyak in 2016.

Sessions was the only one.”....

Maybe Jeff Sessions didn't understand what taking the oath meant.

Lock Him Up!

Calls are growing for Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign after it was reported that he lied under oath about contact with Russian officials while he was a member of the Trump campaign....

 

"The only way for citizens to be able to trust that our government can act with integrity is for Attorney General Sessions to resign his post immediately and for his successor to appoint a special prosecutor to begin a comprehensive investigation of Donald Trump, his campaign, and his administration. Anything short of that is flatly unacceptable and puts our country’s security and our free and fair elections at grave risk.....

 

http://www.politicus...act-russia.html

 

"Early Wednesday evening, The Washington Post published evidence that Sessions and the Russian ambassador held at least two meetings during the 2016 election, meetings that Sessions, under oath, swore never took place.

Sen. Nancy Pelosi made her demands clear in light of evidence that Sessions had perjured himself:

She said that Sessions “is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign. There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal, and financial connections to the Russians.”....

While Kristie, Flynn and Giuliani helped, Bannon was the one that made it happen more than anyone else.
