CNN: AG Sessions did not disclose meetings with Russian officials, DOJ says

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/24/politics/jeff-sessions-russian-officials-meetings/index.html?adkey=bn

Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance, the Justice Department told CNN Wednesday.

Sessions, who met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at least two times last year, didn't note those interactions on the form, which requires him to list "any contact" he or his family had with a "foreign government" or its "representatives" over the past seven years, officials said.
The new information from the Justice Department is the latest example of Sessions failing to disclose contacts he had with Russian officials. He has come under withering criticism from Democrats following revelations that he did not disclose the same contacts with Kislyak during his Senate confirmation hearings earlier this year.
Sessions initially listed a year's worth of meetings with foreign officials on the security clearance form, according to Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores. But she says he and his staff were then told by an FBI employee who assisted in filling out the form, known as the SF-86, that he didn't need to list dozens of meetings with foreign ambassadors that happened in his capacity as a senator.

3. I mean, I'm sure it was a total oversight...

It's easy to forget about contacts with Russian diplomats/spies! It's not like they had anything to do with the election, just ask Trey Gowdy!

6. It isn't just news bombshells any more.

It's news carpet bombing. Whenever I turn on CNN the chyron *always* says "breaking news."

9. This is a corrupt administration, if Sessions thought firing Comey was going to stop the

investigation then he is not as smart as he should be.

11. Why the GOP-wide pattern of denial of contacts with Russian agents?

Oh, let's try the obvious one: All of them know that collaboration with Russian spies is wrong. If ANY of them start out with the assumption that contacts with Russian agents is legal and legitmate, and treat those contacts as "business as usual", then the questions would start up. There's so much that's being denied and hidden, that once the damn breaks, it's all pouring out at a rate, and the MSM is overwhelmed.

What is also a reason that denial, minimizing, and obfuscation is a global "policy" within the GOP is that the leadership structure has received dirty Russian money. We are now finding that McConnell and Ryan were on the take.
