"This Is Either The Most Elaborate Cover-Up Of All Time, Or The Dumbest"

Zero Hedge ^ | 3-3-2017 | Tyler Durden 

As the mainstream liberal media continues to be handed leaks (on a smaller and smaller and more and more desperate basis) from what appears to be angry ex-Obama-ites lingering in the halls of Washington - ever ready to combat a slight rise in Trump's popularity or shift in the "he's the devil" narrative with some new "the Russians did it"-inspiring drivel - many Americans are growing very weary of the drip-drip-drip of nothingness. The latest leak - which was immediately met with howls from The Democrats screaming for his head - was the fact that then-Senator Sessions met with a Russian ambassador in his office in The Capitol during the campaign and did not tell Al Franken about it during his confirmation. As The Wall Street Journal remarks, the story about the connection between Russia and the Donald Trump presidential campaign is either the most elaborate cover-up of all time, or the dumbest.
More evidence for dumb theory arrives with the news that during his confirmation hearings Attorney General Jeff Sessions didn’t tell Senators about two 2016 meetings with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
The Washington Post reported late Wednesday that Mr. Sessions had two conversations with Sergei Kislyak last year, one a brief chat amid a gaggle of other ambassadors at a public event at the GOP convention in July, another in September at the then-Senator’s office.
Yet at his Jan. 10 confirmation hearing, Democrat Al Franken asked Mr. Sessions what he would do if he learned that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign had communicated with the Russian government. “I’m not aware of any of those activities,” Mr. Sessions replied, adding that “I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians.”
