Jeff Sessions is done for. Not only did he himself admit that he committed perjury when he swore under oath that he had no knowledge of a Russian collusion, but now, Trump’s ex-foreign policy adviser Carter Page has come out to fully throw Sessions under the bus.
Page just gave a lengthy private testimony to the House Intelligence committee, and immediately afterward, talked to CNN about some of what was talked about.
Page told CNN that he had just testified to the fact that Jeff Session lied under oath when he said he was never told about trips to Russia. Page says he personally told Sessions about his July 2016 trip. Page denies the trip had anything to do with the Trump campaign, but that Sessions knew full-well that he was going before he’d even left.

According to CNN:
“Sessions’ discussion with Page will fuel further scrutiny about what the attorney general knew about connections between the Trump campaign and Russia — and communications about Russia that he did not disclose despite a persistent line of questioning in three separate hearings this year.”
Jeff Sessions made the biggest mistake of his bigoted life when he got in bed with Donald Trump and decided to start lying for him. Rep. Mike Conaway confirmed to CNN that Page did, in fact, admit that Jeff Sessions committed perjury. Conaway said:
“I don’t make anything sinister out of it. He said Sessions did not react or comment one way or the other. If I were Sessions, I wouldn’t have recalled it either. It was just in passing. He was walking out of the room. A guy he had never met before, grabs him, ‘Hey, I’m out on the team. I changed my travel plans to go to Russia.'”
“Back in June 2016, I mentioned in passing that I happened to be planning to give a speech at a university in Moscow. Completely unrelated to my limited volunteer role with the campaign and as I’ve done dozens of times throughout my life. Understandably, it was as irrelevant then as it is now. If it weren’t for the dodgy dossier and all the chaos that those complete lies had created, my passing comment’s complete lack of relevance should go without saying.”
