Former DOJ Spokesperson Suggests Jeff Sessions Is Complicit in Russia Collusion

Former chief Justice Department spokesperson Matthew Mille told MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions looks increasingly like a high-ranking target of special prosecutor Bob Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.


The first red flag is Sessions' seeming dishonesty.

“You have him saying, ‘I don’t have this conversation with George Papadopoulos, but I know I shut down the suggestion that the president have a meeting.’ These two things don’t square," Mille explained.

“One thing that’s interesting about Sessions, we’ve learned that there have been a lot of people who were surprised when he told Congress two weeks ago that Bob Mueller had not yet asked for an interview," Mille continued. "Mueller has interviewed Rod Rosenstein about the obstruction-of-justice question. Everyone thought Jeff Sessions would be an early witness for that same issue.”

Mille went on to outline why Sessions' current distance from the investigation is actually a bad sign for the attorney general.

“Jeff Sessions looks more and more like a witness at the heart of this investigation, and I think that explains why he’s not been interviewed early. You always get to the top people—the people high up, the people with most exposure—late in the investigation.”

The evidence points in one direction: “[I]t’s now looking more and more like Jeff Sessions probably knows a lot about what happened.”
