Question: do we have to bother with Jeff Sessions' resignation if we skip right over to Trump's impeachment? And did you see what Ivanka wore to the speech? Tack-y!
This story might have some traction if the Democrats didn't turn every issue, every cabinet nomination, and every Administration press release into the worst thing that has happened ever. As far as I can tell, Jeff Sessions was maybe less than forthcoming about his meetings with the Russians but that the specific questions he was asked concerned his involvement with the Trump campaign. So, when asked "about the 2016 election" he responded: "No." As in, no, we didn't talk about the election, there was no collusion with Russia, and there's nothing more needed to respond to that specific question.
Is that hyper-literal? Yes, and Sessions should recuse himself and then clarify his remarks. Just like Claire McCaskill did when she said: "No call or meeting w/Russian ambassador. Ever." Then to clarify a couple hours later: "Oh, when I said that, I totally meant as a member of the Armed Services committee. What made you think "ever" meant "ever." Geez." For extra fun, let's go to the Polaroids, Claire.
As cooler heads will aver: "There’s Almost No Chance That Sessions Committed Perjury." When asked about what he did talk to the Russian ambassador about, Sessions should say "grandchildren and golf."

Update - Sessions recuses.
