- AG Sessions Blasts Russian Collusion Accusations As “Appalling And Detestable Lie”

After yet another 2+ hour public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on alleged collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian spies, we are still no closer to anyone providing a shred of tangible evidence as to the validity of such claims despite Democrats and the mainstream media dedicating virtually every waking moment to the express pursuit of such evidence. That said, it all makes for great, and neverending, political theater and below are the highlights from today’s episode of the continuing insanity.
Sessions set an aggressive tone for the hearing by preemptively stating during his opening remarks that “any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”
“Let me state this clearly, colleagues, I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States, further I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign… any suggestion I participated in or was aware of collusion with the Russians is an appalling and detestable lie.”
