U.S. Attorney General Jeff “Jethro” Sessions will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday to provide his perspective on the damaging allegations made by ex-FBI Kahuna James “high pockets” Comey last Thursday.
In a letter sent to the Senator Richard Shelby, chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Sessions said that the intelligence committee is the “most appropriate” place to tell his side of the story.
“In light of reports regarding Mr. Comey’s recent testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence,” said Sessions, “it is important that I have an opportunity to address these matters in the appropriate forum.”
Adding, the committee “is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information.””
It is not yet known whether Jethro will spill the beans in public or private.
Given reports that Sessions has long fallen out favor with our dear leader, it should be interesting to hear what he has to say to the committee. For sure, they will ask him about the recent reports claiming he met a third time with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Should Jethro speak honestly about the nature of his discussions with the Russian Ambassador, his testimony could wind up having an even more devastating effect than Comey’s. The fact that Sessions has accepted the invitation to testify could indicate his willingness to shed light on the controversy casting, in Trump’s words, a ‘cloud’ over the presidency.
