CNN: FBI told Sessions he didn’t have to disclose Russian contacts


Written by DML
Perhaps the biggest name in fake news is CNN.   So take that into consideration when digesting a new claim issued Sunday about Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Also known as the Clinton News Network, CNN is reporting that the FBI informed an aide to Sessions that he did not need to reveal his foreign contacts that took place while he was carrying out official duties as a U.S. senator.   This backs the Department of Justice’s explanation for why the former senator from Alabama didn’t disclose his contacts with the Russian ambassador on security clearance forms.

CNN claims that an unnamed FBI agent had informed one of Sessions’ aides in an email that “he was not required to list foreign government contacts while in official government business unless he developed personal relationships from such contacts.”

This backs up the DOJ’s explanation for not including his foreign contacts on his security clearance application form.


Democrats had previously knocked Sessions for omitting the contacts on the form.  Perhaps they’ll apologize to Sessions on Monday?  Probably not.
