It has come out that former Senator of Alabama, Jeff Sessions, had spoke with Russian ambassador, which contradict former comments that he had made.
These communications with the Russian ambassador were not disclosed when asked about ties of Trump to Russia during his questioning to become Attorney General.
Al Franken, Senator of Minnesota, had asked Jeff Sessions how he would act if he found evidence of communication between Russia and the Trump administration, to which he responded: “I’m not aware of any of those activities,” “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”
There has been a lot of speculation as to whether that has been communication between Donald Trump and Russia dating back to the campaign, and some of those speculations have been confirmed with the resignation of Michael Flynn. Michael Flynn resigned once it was found that he spoke to the Russian ambassador about sanctions.
Senator Al Franken who questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions about actions that would be pursued if evidence for communication between Trump and Russia was found, responded to the information that was recently found by stating: “If it’s true that Attorney General Sessions met with the Russian ambassador in the midst of the campaign, then I am very troubled that his response to my questioning during his confirmation hearing was, at best, misleading.”
Many Americans have doubts that the Trump administration is not in communication or coordination with Russia and their government, and this information may further those concerns for the American people.
