Bring me mah salts, Buellah, Comrade Preznint Stupid might get his wish to replace Jefferson Beauregard ‘Stonewall’ Sessions III with someone who has not recused his silly ol’ self:
Russia’s ambassador to Washington told his superiors in Moscow that he discussed campaign-related matters, including policy issues important to Moscow, with Jeff Sessions during the 2016 presidential race, contrary to public assertions by the embattled attorney general, according to current and former U.S. officials.
Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts of two conversations with Sessions — then a top foreign policy adviser to Republican candidate Donald Trump — were intercepted by U.S. spy agencies, which monitor the communications of senior Russian officials both in the United States and in Russia. Sessions initially failed to disclose his contacts with Kislyak and then said that the meetings were not about the Trump campaign.
One U.S. official said that Sessions — who testified that he has no recollection of the April encounter — has provided “misleading” statements that are “contradicted by other evidence.” A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had “substantive” discussions on matters including Trump’s positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration.
I’d clear out mah desk, if I was y’all, Mr. Sessions, y’all know, before the po-lice asset-seize it in a totally legal way (an’ keep all the stained back issues of Slave and Master in the file cabinet).
UPDATE: Paddy Power, Betfair, and other betting sites have taken all of their Sessions-related bets off the board.
