Russia. Such a small word for such a big country, and an even bigger scandal. President Trump’s gaffes overseas may have been humorous, but the scandal at home is getting more serious. The Justice Department reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had failed to disclose his two meetings with the Russian Ambassador last year when he applied for a security clearance, where he is required to list all interactions with representatives of foreign governments. To make things more interesting, then-FBI Director James Comey’s actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation were said to have been influenced by a Russian intelligence document alleging Justice Department collaboration with the Clinton campaign on that very investigation. It is now reported this Russian document was possibly fraudulent, and was sent to the FBI to “confuse” them. Ok, is anyone not confused at this stage? Probably Russia.
