The New York Times, a sleezy rag that's been spreading disinformation for 70 years that I know of, quotes an unnamed Justice Dept official the the effect that Jeff Session had two contacts with the Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak. Sessions has denied the reports. The TV newsies are going full bore with this story, this morning's Fox News has talked about little else today.
I got some questions. 1. When did these alleged contacts occur? 2. What's wrong with a US Senator talking to anybody, including the Russians? 3. Sessions was a US Senator until very recently. How does a Justice Dept official know anything about what a Senator is/was doing? 4. Who is this mysterious Justice Dept official that the Times hangs the story on? 5. Are there any other sources? Named or anonymous? 6. Sessions has a pretty good rep for honesty, why should I not believe him over an unnamed source?
