Trump Team’s Ties To Russia Face Sharper Scrutiny Amid New House Probe And Explosive Reports
Pressure grows for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into the scandal.

So let's see. The guy whose meetings with Russians the FBI is supposed to be investigating as part of their larger inquiry into the Trump campaign's ties to the Kremlin, is now being put in a position where he would be able to exert control over the FBI? How's that for a move, eh?

So when specifically asked about any possible contacts with Russian officials, Sessions says, "I did not have communications with the Russians” – and his spokeszombie says, "He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign – not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee". That's disingenuous and in no way exonerates Sessions at all.

Lying under oath. He should be prosecuted. Perjury, after all, is what did Bill Clinton in. It's about time this racist midget is held to account. He's terrorized elderly black voters, disrespected women, and pushes an agenda of mass incarceration – I say give him the opportunity to experience a little of his own tough love.

So let's see now…

* Paul Manafort, former campaign aid – helped pro-Russian Ukrainian dictator, Viktor Yanukovich get elected. Is being investigated by the FBI for his dealings with Russia.
* Michael Flynn, now resigned, for lying about his discussions with Russia. Promised lifting of sanctions, suggesting he had agreement from Trump…
* Multiple intelligence sources reporting Russia has kompromat on Trump.
* In vindication of the Christopher Steele dossier, Trump avoided discussing the Crimean annexation and even encouraged other Repubs to avoid the topic as well.
* Trump has expressed disdain for NATO all during the campaign.
* Now, his attorney general is caught with his hand in the cookie jar as well… and his resignation is likely.

Time to do the math already, no? Trump's administration seems to be moved around like pawns on a chessboard.

I wonder how many freaking times can Ryan and McConnell be faced with another scandal in their beloved Republican administration without showing some balls and say enough is enough. If they continue to back the Drumfpster and continue this charade of a presidency, how do they ever think they will be able to do anything with their so-called agenda?
