Memo from NBB to Sessions: Resign, you embarrassment!
Dear Mister Attorney General,
Did you forget something – yet again?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified under oath that he did not believe he had interacted with lobbyists tied to Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, when he served as an adviser to candidate Donald Trump.
One lobbyist tied to Russia is now countering that account.
Richard Burt, a former American ambassador to Germany who has lobbied for Russian interests, told The Guardian on Thursday that he had attended two dinners where Sessions was present.
“I did attend two dinners with groups of former Republican foreign policy officials and Sen. Sessions,” Burt said.
He added that he did not know whether Sessions was familiar with Burt’s background when he attended these events.
Burt played a role in crafting one of Trump’s first major foreign policy speeches, which critics noted when Sessions was asked by Sen. John McCain whether he had “any contacts with any representative, including any American lobbyist or agent of any Russian company.”
Sessions had replied, “I don’t believe so.”
Burt’s comment to The Guardian comes on top of your failure to disclose a slew of meetings with Russian spymaster (and ambassador) Sergei Kislyak.
[Sessions] recused himself (albeit in a confusing manner) in March after it became clear that he lied to Congress during his confirmation hearings about meetings he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the campaign. But during his testimony, Comey suggested that misleading Congress about the meetings with Kislyak was not the only reason why Sessions recused himself.
Did you lie?
Did you forget?
Whichever is true, it is clear that you are either too dishonest or too senile to be Attroney General. And don’t get me started about your regressive attack on medical cannabinols.
Resign, shut up, and get the hell out of Washington, you embarrassment.
