The Attorney General pushed back on the narrative that he had colluded with the Russians.
Right out of the gate at a Senate Intelligence Hearing on Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushed back hard on Democrats’ Trump-Russia collusion narrative.
“I did not have any private meeting, nor do I recall any conversations with any Russian officials at the Mayflower Hotel,” Sessions said, shooting down the recent accusation that he had a third undisclosed meeting with the Russian ambassador.
“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 any election in the United States,” he continued.
Sessions took offense to the insinuation that he had something to do with Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The former senator from Alabama went in on his former colleagues, flinging accusations: “I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, at least some of you, and the suggestion that I participated in any collusion, that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for 35 years or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie.”
