It turns out that popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп has yet ANOTHER official who’s lied about contacts they had with Russia, newly installed Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. The new Attorney General spoke with the Russian ambassador twice last year as a surrogate for Трамп, but lied about these contacts during his confirmation hearing earlier this year. Former Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III (R-Al) joined the Трамп campaign in February 2016.
Senator Al Franken (D-Mn) asked Sessions during his confirmation hearing in January 2017 whether any Трамп surrogates had contacts with the Russian government. Sessions replied, “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”
Officials said Sessions did not consider his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in July 2016 and September 2016 to be contacts. Sessions’ spokeswoman, Sarah Isgur Flores, said, “There was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer.”
When a hammer then fell on Flores foot, she reportedly said, “A hammer did not just fall on my foot.” When it started bleeding, she then added, “And my foot is not bleeding.”
Anonymous sources say that Трамп has not given word yet on when he plans to go on Twitter and post about, “Fake News Media Lying Enemy of the American People SAD!”
It looks like Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer won’t be getting a cash bonus or other additional payments this year, due to two security breaches at Yahoo.
“I am the CEO of the company and … this incident happened during my tenure,” Mayer said in a statement taking responsibility for her regime’s failures.
Still not taking responsibility for his regime’s failures: Donald Трамп!
Speaking of tension, did you hear the latest from Sweden? They are so concerned about a Russian invasion that the the Swedish government has decided to reintroduce military conscription. 4,000 men and women will be called up for service from 1 January 2018.
Marinette Nyh Radebo, a spokeswoman for Sweden’s defense ministry, said the return to conscription was prompted by, “Russian military activity.”
When asked for a comment, an anonymous Russian diplomat reportedly said, “Is no big deal, we will not invade Sweden this year, ask Jeff Sessions or Michael Flynn in America, we talk to those guys all the time, they can back us up!”
It’s been less than two months, and it already feels like two years. If you aren’t worried, if you aren’t contacting your elected officials, you aren’t paying attention.
Or, possibly, you’re in a coma.
If you’re in a coma, and you’re reading this, congratulations on being able to read while you’re in a coma, that’s amazing!
Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
