Late Wednesday evening, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) released a statement calling on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign over statements he made to the Senate during his confirmation process.
“Jeff Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing before the Senate. Under penalty of perjury, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee, ‘I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.’ We now know that statement is false,” Pelosi wrote.

It’s like whack-a-Russian-mole with these guys. Get rid of one with Russian contacts and another one pops up. Who’s next?March 2, 2017 at 8:35 am #27611March 2, 2017 at 8:52 am #27612LangstonParticipant

He’s recused himself fully on the Russian probe matter, which is at least a start. He’s not going to resign unless they find more then they have to this point.March 2, 2017 at 2:42 pm #27620AmusParticipant
Lying, of course, is an impeachable offense unless you’re part of the Trump Administration.
Then it’s a virtue.March 2, 2017 at 5:00 pm #27626
The hypocrisy parade marches on.
Daily, statements and activities, that were they perpetrated by a Democrat, would be eliciting howls of outrage and demands for investigations by the GOP, are instead ignored, soft-pedaled, or deflected.

And more, GOP folks, chatting it up with Russian envoys during the election season.
Doesn’t mean a thing. Nothing to see here. All is well!
Can you imagine the hue and cry if this had been the Clinton campaign.

The whole Trump-Russia connections coming to light are disturbing. There is just something not right about the situation. It stinks.
And as for Sessions, he’s guilty of perjury at this point.March 2, 2017 at 7:22 pm #27639proud2baconservativeSpectator
No perjury unless context is totally irrelevant.
I don’t think the Democrats or their cohorts in the media believe Sessions was plotting anything with the Russians. It’s phony outrage.
Anyone who thinks anything will come of this is dreaming and will end up looking silly again.March 2, 2017 at 7:36 pm #27641VitalogyParticipant
Nope. He clearly committed perjury and as a result he should resign. If the top cop in the US lies under oath, he’s not fit to serve.
And beyond that fact (which is an undeniable fact that has occurred) why in the hell is there so much communication between the Trump campaign and Russia?March 3, 2017 at 1:24 am #27656BrianlParticipant
“No perjury unless context is totally irrelevant.”
He said, under oath, that he did not have any talks with Russian officials.
It has been outed that he indeed did.
By the letter (and spirit) of the law, that is indeed perjury, no?March 3, 2017 at 1:04 pm #27666
