Watch Team Trump deny any collusion with the Russians

Sergey Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to the U.S., has told his superiors in Moscow that he had discussed matters related to President Trump’s campaign with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Washington Post reported Saturday.The paper quoted current and former administration officials who cited USA intelligence intercepts of Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s accounts to his bosses in Moscow of two encounters he had with Sessions, then an adviser to Trump, during the campaign.The President, of course, went on record this week saying he’s unhappy about Sessions recusing himself, even saying he would have chosen someone else for the job had he known ahead of time.However, the episode underscored how the attorney general’s crime-fighting agenda is being overshadowed by his fractured relationship with Trump and the continuing investigations into allegations of Russian ties to the Republican candidate’s presidential campaign. These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop! Sessions was then Trump’s chief advisor on foreign policy issues.”I have come to the point where I no longer put any stock in headlines or breaking news”, Coats said when asked about the report during an event at the forum.Trump went on to condemn the Russian Federation probe, asking why the Attorney General and Special Counsel Robert Mueller weren’t looking into the several alleged scandals involving Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey. Tucker defended Sessions, saying that he is not someone seeking money or power but just wants to do the right thing.Jeff Sessions, for learning – from the media! – that the President would rather you not be in your job, you had the Worst Week in Washington. “I’m totally confident that we can continue to run this office in an effective way”, he said.Defense attorney William Jeffress, who represented former President Richard Nixon, said he’s concerned that Trump’s rhetoric about Sessions reveals a larger misunderstanding of the attorney general’s role.”Sessions should have never recused himself”.
