It seems that it has been a crazy train for the Trump Administration for the over a month of him being in office. A few weeks ago, it was reported that Michael Flynn was stepping down from his position after it was revealed that he had discussions with Russian officials and he never told that to anyone. Now it seems another member of the Trump Administration has been caught doing the same thing, Jeff Sessions.
It is being reported that recently appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions has had conversations with Russian officials and didn’t divulge that to members of Congress at his hearing. While nothing has happened to his position as of this writing, time can only tell as to his future as being the attorney general. However, due to not telling anyone about these conversations that Sessions, who at the time was the Republican Senator from Arkansas, had with Russian officials could lead to a special counsel appointed by Congress to investigate the role of Russia in the 2016 election.
This also becomes interesting and could be a conflict of interest as Jeff Sessions oversees the Justice Department and the FBI, which have been in charge of investigating Russian’s role in the election and any links to the Trump administration. It should be noted that since Trump became the president back on January 20th, there has been accusations that the Russians were the ones who helped Trump beat Clinton. When Jeff Sessions was at his confirmation hearings back in January, he was specifically asked by Senator Al Franken of Minnesota if he was aware if anyone, who was associated with Trump’s campaign, had any conversations with Russia.
In regards to Jeff Sessions, it will be interesting to see how much longer he is still the Attorney General and this will not help Donald Trump as that would then mean two high-level members of his administration would end up resigning due to conversations with Russia.
