That's jumping a few steps ahead, don't you think? I think they first need to investigate further and see what they can find out in terms of what what said at those meetings. Yes, he should have come forward about the meetings taking place but that only deserves a slap on the wrist
@stella how exactly do you expect them to find out EXACTLY what was said at the meetings? They can't, so they need to air on the side of caution and ask him to step down
He would have met with dozens of ambassadors. Sure, if you look at these in isolation it seems like a big deal but honestly it isn't. In all probability, they didn't speak about the election and there is no way to find out if they did.
@erica_binz55 how can you say in all probability they didn't speak about the election? What are you basing that on? I don't think that's an assumption they can really make...
I'm pretty sure every person in his position did the same prior, there's nothing extraordinary about this
@ericguillermoguzman Lied about it? No. Those meetings were on the public record and done through official channels. The issue isn't Sessions meeting with the Russian Ambassador period. It's the secrecy and lying under oath about it.
The question was about meeting to discuss the election, not just meeting. Sessions was a senator who was on some committe that dealt with international affairs.
It was a dumb thing to lie about. It was a dumb thing to do. But he was confirmed as AG when his positions about civil rights enforcement and people of color were matters of the record. Those issues are far more troubling, especially when he has already acted on them by refusing to investigate state-sponsored racism by police departments.
