Washington - Then-U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions spoke twice last year with Russia’s ambassador, encounters he did not disclose when asked during his confirmation hearing to become attorney general about possible contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing Justice Department officials.

One of the meetings was a private conversation between Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak that took place in September in the senator’s office, at the height of what U.S. intelligence officials say was a Russian cyber campaign to upend the U.S. presidential race, the Post reported.

Aside from the neo-fascist leanings of Trumpf's administration, his refusal to show his tax returns, his racist and bigoted remarks against Latino immigrants, Trumpf's soft underbelly, his Achilles Heel is his relationship with Czar Pootin's Russia. This is NOT fake news. The FBI, CIA, many in Congress (on both sides), independent journalists will crack the case and expose Trumpf for what he is. A fellow traveler with autocrat Pootin.

No context? How about a few quotes from sources that give context:

> Sessions had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors last year in his role as a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee

In other words, his contacts, based on his job, were a given and not part of the questions. The confirmation question dealt solely and exclusively with the campaign, and Sessions had no contact with Russians regarding the campaign.

Seeing as someone has mentioned the topic, I will point out a few things. Summary tax returns have been "leaked" already. Unlike the other Presidents, Trump has world wide business dealings and revealing any financial information puts his business dealings (even if run by other people) at a disadvantage to his competitors. As recent events have shown, any detail revelations risks the lunatic lefties starting a world wide boycott campaign against anyone who profits Trump.
