Did Jeff Sessions perjure himself?

The revelation of Sessions' Russian contacts - which directly contradicted his testimony in Senate confirmation hearings - plunged President Donald Trump's administration into fresh turmoil, dashing its hopes for a feel-good reboot after a chaotic start.

It was the second time Kislyak has emerged at the center of the Russian Federation controversies. "He then tried to excuse it by saying it was part of the normal course of his Armed Services Committee work". One of them was with Kislyak. Sessions, in a statement, said he "never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign".

But it's those interactions that now have him in the spotlight.

Justice officials said Sessions met with Kislyak on September 8 in his capacity as a member of the armed services panel rather than in his role as a Trump campaign surrogate, the Post reported.

Congress should appoint a special prosecutor to independently investigate questions surrounding Russian Federation and Trump campaign. After all, Flynn was eventually pressured to resign.

"Attorney General Sessions did the right thing by recusing himself, and he did exactly what he said he'd do regarding potential recusals when he was before our committee", Grassley wrote.

An unverified dossier presented to Trump in January by top USA intelligence officials alleged that Mr Trump "agreed to sideline" the issue of Russian intervention in Ukraine during his campaign after Russia promised to feed the emails it stole from prominent Democrats' inboxes to WikiLeaks.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become the latest member of the Cabinet of US President Donald Trump to come under a cloud over contacts with Russian officials. And remember that President Obama and members of his campaign all said specifically and repeatedly that there had been no contact with Russian Federation.

Kislyak is considered by United States intelligence to be one of Russia's top spies and spy-recruiters in Washington, according to current and former senior U.S. government officials.

Alleged Russian ties with US officials in the Trump administration has been a hot topic in the US media, with Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak in the headlines.

Mr Peskov argued it was normal for an ambassador to meet with officials and politicians, adding that "the more such meetings an ambassador has, the more efficient his work is". The last descriptor referred to Putin's prior career as a KGB officer, a dimension of his personality that has most appeared to govern his operating style as Russia's leader the last 17 years. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who tweeted that she had "been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years". Now Sessions, too, is caught up with Kislyak. Afterward, while addressing the press on the expansion of Lukoil in NY, with Putin by his side, Schumer said, "With the introduction of this independent source of oil, the Saudis and OPEC will not have the stranglehold on oil prices they now have". "Our job is to understand". The Israeli reported that the Russians he met with "see cooperation with the U.S.as endangering their own strategic interests". -Russian relations have deteriorated.

"We are living in the worst point in our relations after the end of the Cold War", he said, adding that the United States is attempting to control Russian Federation through sanctions.

Michael McFaul was the USA ambassador to Russian Federation from 2012 to 2014. "That really doesn't really have anything to do with him personally".

And I think you know what it is.
