Any Russians in the Room? Sessions Jokes at Washington Speech

Any Russians in the Room? Sessions Jokes at Washington Speech

On Friday, he gave a speech to the Federalist Society National Lawyers Convention. Before I get started here, any Russians? The crowd laughed and applauded at the jokes, which were not in his prepared remarks.

"First, I'm never going to do that", Sergey Kislyak said in an interview with the state-owned network Russia-1, CNBC reported.

Sessions testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, maintaining he did not lie during his confirmation hearings when asked about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Russia's former ambassador to the United States said Wednesday that it would take him more than 20 minutes to list all of the Trump administration officials with whom he's met or spoken to on the phone.

Sessions in particular has been under fire due to contacts he had with Russian officials during President Donald Trump's campaign, as well as his knowledge of contacts that other campaign officials had. Those meetings have been of interest in the ongoing Russian Federation investigations.

Coincidentally, it was Michael Flynn's meeting with Kislyak that triggered his downfall.

In his speech on Friday, Sessions went on to speak about how the Justice Department will no longer issue guidance memos, as had been done during President Obama's tenure on topics such as transgender student bathroom use.
