...and now the AG - Russia's Widening Touch of the New White House

Evidence has emerged that the United States(US) Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, while a Senator and supporter of the Donald Trump campaign for president, had multiple contacts, at least two, with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in the past year. This information was not volunteered to the Senate during his confirmation hearings for the spot as the Republic's top lawyer.

Some people, including House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, have called for Sessions to resign, while others have called for him to recuse himself from an investigation into Russia's meddling into the 2016 US Presidential Election, according to a Time Magazine report.

"Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign," Nancy Pelosi was cited by the New York Times as declaring. Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee said Sessions should "clarify his testimony(made to Congress) and recuse himself."

Sessions failed to mention any meeting with Russian officials during his confirmation hearings for the Attorney General position. Under oath at the hearings he said he knew of no contacts between Trump surrogates and Russians. Sessions has claimed he never discussed campaign-related issues with anyone from Russia, the New York Times reported.

The Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, according to reports, is considered by US intelligence to be one of Russia's top spies and spy recruiters in Washington, DC.

This new revelation involving the US Attorney General, multiple current investigations amid evidence of Russian meddling in US elections and affairs, undoubtedly underscore Russia's broad touch of the new administration, thus leaving many questions unanswered as to the real sovereignty of the Republic in the Trump era.
