Donald Trump's son-in-law also had secret meetings with Russian envoy

"To listen to him, nothing that Russia-Russia had done nothing that was wrong in any area, and everybody else was wrong with regard to the Ukraine", Sessions recalled.

This should put an end to the phony story ginned up by the radical, alt-left media.

The U.S. and Russian Federation, along with many other countries, have made it a practice to separate their top diplomats from espionage activities, although it is not uncommon for an intelligence agent to operate under the cover of a senior-level diplomat job.

February 13: Russian Federation again denies the allegations that the men discussed sanctions, telling CNN: "We have already said there haven't been any".

June 20: After Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is abruptly fired, Manafort emerges as Trump's top campaign official. Sessions has been under pressure to step away from his involvement in the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the elections and results. The spokesperson added that Sessions was approached following the speech by several ambassadors, including Kislyak, with whom he held a "short and informal" conversation. Jeff Sessions, according to the DNC event's organizer. It was not out of the ordinary that he talked to foreign ambassadors, and in fact, he spoke to dozens of them past year alone.

During Sessions' confirmation hearing, he is questioned by Sen. Here's the January 10 exchange he had with Sen. Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama, tweeted Thursday that Kislyak was not present for the DNC, which occurred just days after WikiLeaks dumped a trove of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, an act that USA intelligence has concluded was done with Russian involvement.

Asked Wednesday if he'd discussed the campaign with Kislyak, Sessions said, "I don't recall".

It was clear to anyone with a double-digit IQ that Sessions was responding to the "breaking news" Franken sited, which, by the way, turned out to not be true.

"I met with the Russian ambassador with other senators with the Armed Services Committee", he said, providing details about the context.

Carter Page, who Trump identified as among his first foreign policy advisors, acknowledged the contact on MSNBC Thursday night when he didn't deny meeting with Kisklak. That's just part of the job. They've been pushing this ever since President Trump won.

He also didn't want to delve into his role advising Trump, whom he said he never briefed. Sessions, too, is under fire for potentially lying about his contacts with Kislyak under oath, not necessarily for meeting the Ambassador in the first place.

"We've got to be very careful here", Nunes said. "It's a slippery slope". "The call centered around the logistics of setting up a call with the President of Russian Federation and the President-elect after he was sworn in, and they exchanged the logistical information", Spicer says. "Many senators and congressmen meet with those ambassadors on a regular basis".

Yet, in the tradition of anti-Russia hype in the American media, on close inspection, the stories end up amounting to nothing but further evidence of Americas "permanent government", its Cold War agenda, and their attempt to overturn, or at least "hem in", the policy decisions made by the new administration on the issue of US relations with Russian Federation.
