Al Franken: Jeff Sessions Is Not Telling the Truth About Interactions with Russia

‘I just want to make sure that everyone understands, this is not personal’

EXCERPT:

FRANKEN: "No. I don’t think he was telling the truth when I questioned him in his confirmation hearing in January. I don’t think he was telling the truth today. I just want to make sure that everyone understands, this is not personal. This is about the number one law enforcement officer in our country and whether he interfered with — in any way — with Russia interfering in our election. Actually, he did contradict himself earlier when he — Pat Leahy asked him if he had talked with Kislyak about any of Trump’s policies and he said, 'I could have. Yeah, maybe I did.' And, of course, policies, foreign policy in a campaign, those are positions in a campaign. That’s part of a campaign. And he kind of said, 'Yeah, I could have,' and Senator Leahy used actually the policies in the campaign."
