More On Jeff Sessions' Perjury

From The Wall Street Journal:
The Trump administration says Attorney General Jeff Sessions was acting as a then-U.S. senator when he talked to Russia’s ambassador at an event during last year’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, but Mr. Sessions paid for convention travel expenses out of his own political funds and he spoke about Donald Trump’s campaign at the event, according to a person at the event and campaign-finance records.

Mr. Sessions made comments related to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign at a Heritage Foundation event during the Republican convention in July, when he met with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, according to a person at the event in Cleveland.
And remember he said under oath that he "did not have communications with the Russians" and a lie under oath is called perjury.  And remember, he voted "guilty" on President Clinton's perjury charge.

So far, all he's doing is recusing himself.  He needs to resign.

And an independent investigation needs to be set up into Trump's Russian connections.

Now.

Saying something untrue under Oath is not Perjury.

Eric Holder claimed he only heard of Fast and Furious “for the first time probably over the last few weeks.”
Untrue.

But the Democrats condemned pointing it out as Gotcha politics.

You set the standard.
"a lie under oath is called perjury."
Why is it different for Sessions and Holder?

Oh, Deplorable One, You stepped right in it. Again. I fail to see how what you linked to actually shows perjury.

Holder says on May 3, 2011 that while he can't recall the exact date he learned about Fast and Furious, he said he probably heard about it sometime over "the last few weeks."

The quote by Obama (left curiously undated by Real Clear Politics) was from March 22 of that year. That's where Obama said he didn't know about it. And that was only 42 days before. That's only 6 weeks between those two quotes.

THAT'S what you're resting perjury charge on?? Whether 6 weeks constitutes "a few"?

Wow.

In the meantime, Sessions said he had no communications with the Russians when he definitely had.

Deplorable Omega Supreme Cuck said...

so your defense is that Holder told Obama about Fast and Furious just before March 22 speech.
We can not find that out as Obama/Holder/DOJ have claimed any documentation of that falls under executive privilege.

Of course, this ignores that there were multiple memos addressed to Holder about Fast and Furious before that date.

Holder claims that He did not read them.

Oh deplorable one, you can't read (or at least comprehend) can you?

So sad!
