Just have to get this off my chest before I go to bed:

Franken's question to Sessions was not whether he or anyone on the Trump team had contact with the Russians but rather, What would Sessions do if found out they did have contact? Session's reply was not on the question, which is typical of a politician's reply, but in this case just raised a million more questions about why he would reply that he never communicated with the Russians, when indeed we have learned he did.

You can imagine a conversation between a parent and his teenager: "So son, what would you do if you found out your friends brought along some dope to the party last night?" "Gee dad, I don't know of anyone with any dope. I don't have any dope that's for sure!"

1. Sounded like "consciousness of guilt" to me too.

 

Answering a question he was afraid to hear instead of the one that was asked.

2. That was the discussion here too - "What would Sessions DO?"

Don't know why the media hasn't mention that.

3. The question continues to be misquoted and some are even saying Sessions actually answered it.

He never answered the question: "What would you do?" He volunteered the information, which turned out to be false, that he never had communication with the Russians. It was not in response to any question that Franken posed but which somehow is now said to only apply to contacts made about the campaign.

Am I losing it or has the world gone mad?

4. I saw someone else post the same thing recently too.

I agree. I think he was giving himself away as a liar because he was trying so hard to cover his ass that he failed to actually answer the question that was asked. He just heard Russia and went into default lying mode.

6. Thank you for bringing that up.

It seems that the news media is ignoring it.
