Sessions’ Testimony: Zero Evidence of Trump Campaign Colluding With Russians

As part of their effort to prove the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to influence the presidential election, Democrats in Congress are calling officials and former officials to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Last week, senators questioned former FBI Director James Comey. He disappointed the Democrats, since he affirmed Trump’s version of events. This week, they called Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The pair had recommended Trump fire Comey for the way he handled the probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Sessions’ testimony equally disappointed Democrats. He said repeatedly that he saw no evidence of collusion. He called the accusation that he personally colluded with the Russians to influence the election “a detestable lie.” At one point, he stormed, “The suggestion that I participated in any collusion or that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for over 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie.”
