3. What happens now?

We all knew Sessions was dirty, but what's next? Will he go the way of Mike Flynn?

I wonder who leaked.

6. First on CNN: AG Sessions did not disclose meetings with Russian officials, DOJ says (It's a felony)

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

Washington (CNN)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.

10. "Good people don't smoke marijuana"

Apparently 'good people' lie about contacting the Russians and get caught. Fuck Sessions. I sincerely hope he's gone soon. I hate him more than Trump. He's an evil racist bastard who's trying to restart the war on drugs just so more minorities get locked away and lose their voting rights.

14. What we've known for months is that Sessions lied in the Senate confirmation

hearing.

The news today is that he also lied in his Security Clearance forms.
