Yesterday, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee where he was questioned about what he knew concerning the President’s dealings and conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey, the FBI Russian probe and his conversations with President Trump. Democrats were hoping for more ammunition with which to shoot down the Trump presidency. Here are five key things about Sessions’ testimony.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions went before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday as reverberations continue from the appearance of former FBI Director James Comey in front of the same panel last week.
So, what were the key takeaways?
Sessions got his side of the story out
Sessions’s testimony diverged from the fired FBI chief’s in important respects.
Sessions disputed Comey’s account of a crucial meeting in mid-February. By Comey’s account, he told Sessions the day after being left alone with President Trump in the Oval Office that this should never happen again, and Sessions did not respond…
Basically, Sessions didn’t provide Democrats with what they wanted to hear. Instead, he defended President Trump and himself, while answering their questions. When questioned about his possible collusion with the Russians during the presidential campaign, he heated told the Senators that it was a deliberate and despicable lie.
