The Golden Shower

Something interesting

At one time I must have been thinking this series should be titled Moscow on the Potomac. Missed my chance, and it’s no big deal. No big deal? How about this, from CNN:

Sessions did not disclose meetings with Russian ambassador

(CNN) — Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice last year with the top Russian diplomat in Washington whose interactions with President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn led to Flynn’s firing, according to the Justice Department.

Sessions did not mention either meeting during his confirmation hearings when he said he knew of no contacts between Trump surrogates and Russians. A Justice official said Sessions didn’t mislead senators during his confirmation.

Does this go deeper than the Pee Pee Tape? It’s hard for me to  say right now. I will have to take another look at the Pee Pee Tape. In the meantime, the problem is not so much about whether the now Attorney General met last year with Russian ambassador. The problem has quickly become what Jeff Sessions testified to in his confirmation hearings:

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

I do not have before me a video of Senator Sessions’ testimony at his confirmation, but I am sure that pursuant to giving that testimony he swore to tell the whole truth. Not telling the whole truth is one of the definitions of perjury. Based on his professional experience and reinforced by his own statements, Jeff Sessions is aware of what constitutes perjury:

What Jeff Sessions Said About Perjury During The Clinton Impeachment

“The American people believe no one is above the law.”

With every development in this matter I am becoming more and more interested in knowing exactly what is on the legendary Pee Pee Tape.

Keep reading. And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
