There you have it…another liberal plot to obstruct the President and his Administration from making America great again has been ripped to shreds!  It looks like President Trump was right when he said Attorney General (AG) Sessions should not have recused himself from the fake Russia-Trump campaign collusion investigation.  Has anybody heard of any apologies from the liberal attack-dogs?  I haven’t.

So when is AG Sessions going to un-recuse himself from the case and rip to shreds the rest of the liberals’ fake obstructionist claims on some kind of Russia-Trump collusion?

Come on Jeff, take off the gloves and attack!

The FBI has put to bed a controversy whipped up by liberal critics of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with foreign officials including Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 presidential campaign.

An FBI email released through the Freedom of Information Act said that Sessions had no obligation to reveal any contacts with foreign officials unless he “developed personal relationships” with them.

The bottom line: His two contacts with Kislyak in 2016 did not have to be revealed to the FBI on his SF-86 security clearance application, part of his confirmation process.

Sessions has repeatedly denied that he talked about the campaign with the Russian, but critics have continued to question his decision to not list them on his SF-86, which contains a box to check for contacts.

The email confirms statements from Justice staffers that Sessions did not need to check the foreign contacts box.

It does not list any name, but the “From” line reads “FBI.” It is dated March 7, 2017.

The email references a question asked by Sessions aide Peggi Hanrahan about previously asking if the attorney general needed to list is foreign contacts on the SF-86.

While the FBI official didn’t recall any prior discussions, the email said Sessions did the right thing.

“For the purposes of the SF-86, he was not required to list foreign government contacts while on official government business unless he developed personal relationships from such contacts,” said the FBI official in the email.

Sessions has never said the talks were more than in his capacity as a senator from Alabama and that he was not pals with the Russian ambassador.
