Never forget that he stood up and did this...



His lies by omission were much more than just "errors," he had committed the crime of perjury in sworn testimony.

What aren't the GOPrs making this distinction?

20. "Not omission, it was willful and unforced lying"

Yes! This needs to be repeated over and over and louder than their weaseling response that Sessions didn't actually talk about anything substantial at those meetings (that didn't happen)

17. He was asked a question under oath. He said "no". The answer should have been "yes"

No matter his intention, his interpretation, or his subsequent backpeddling, he perjured himself. The content is irrelevant, at least with respect to his breach of federal law regarding perjury.

22. What "lies by omission" are we talking about?

His lies of commission are enough to warrant firing and prosecution.

26. True. It seems people are confused about "omission"

Omission means that you did not provide information that was relevant. A lie of omission would be:

Panel: Please tell us about your activities during the campaign, where there any communications with foreign governments.
Sessions: During the campaign I spoke with many people and I managed the fundraising activities in the Southern part of the country.

Sessions knows he spoke with foreign governments but he failed to disclose in response to an open ended question about the subject.

In this case Sessions stated actively, that he had no contact with Russians. That was a direct lie not a lie of omission. He actively mislead the Panel about his contact with the Russians not by omitting that he had them, but by actively stating that he did not.

27. For old Jeffbo?

It wouldn't be the first time.

Sessions, go back to your dogpatch. (I'm not downing Alabama - my daughter and granddaughter and granddaughter-to-be live there, as I did for a number of years.

But the GOP there operates their own kind of dogpatch, and never bothers to clean up the shit in the dog yard.
