Elizabeth Warren Calls Out Despicable Jeff Sessions For His Brazen Lie About Russian Contact

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren
20 mins
It's a simple question from Congress: "Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after Election Day?" Jeff Sessions answered "No." Turns out Sessions, a huge Trump booster and self-described campaign surrogate, met with the Russian Ambassador. Two months before the election. And now he's the Attorney General – the final say on the law enforcement investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russia? What a farce.
This is not normal. This is not fake news. This is a very real and serious threat to the national security of the United States. We need a special prosecutor totally independent of the AG. We need a real, bipartisan, transparent Congressional investigation into Russia. And we need the Attorney General – who should have never been confirmed in the first place – to resign.
We need it now.

"Sessions met with Russian envoy twice last year, 
encounters he later did not disclose"

MSNBC did a 3 hour expose on the increasing evidence of Trump/Putin connections. It was supposed to be 2 hours but 2 breaking news stories pushed it to 3.

One of the new revelations is about Sessions speaking to the Russian Ambassador twice during Trump's campaign although he swore under oath at his hearing that he never spoke to any Russians. (Wash. Post) Sessions will have to recuse himself or be recused. Pelosi is calling for the resignation of Sessions.

The other news item about "Russian connection" is that the Obama Administration protected information they had about Trump's Russian connection so that it would not disappear with the incoming administration. (New York Times)

The Wall Street Journal is also looking into Sessions' Russian communication. 

The Resisters have to start beating the drum for Trump's tax returns as part of an independent investigation
