Should a special prosecutor be appointed to investigate Trump-Russia ties?

Most Americans Want a Special Prosecutor to Probe Russia and the 2016 Election

However insignificant, the two men's meeting is likely to become the latest briquette on a roaring fire of controversy that hinges on technicalities, since a White House spokeswoman denied just last week that Trump "had no interaction" with Russian officials while he was running for president.

The Washington Post reported Sessions spoke with Kislyak on two different occasions in 2016. Independents are also divided, with 35 percent saying Russian Federation influenced the results, and 40 percent saying it didn't.

He maintained that the meetings were in the capacity as Senator and not related to the Trump campaign.

During his January confirmation hearing, Sen.

"I'm not aware of any of those activities".

Half of GOP voters said Sessions told the truth, while 60 percent of Democrats said he lied. The full clip can be viewed here (at the 2:10 mark).

However, this was quickly proven false. Haven't made a phone call to Russian Federation in years. She just didn't have enough Twitter characters to add "one-on-one". Apparently, for many politicians and journalists, meeting a Russian ambassador is suspicious at best, and treasonous at worst – regardless of circumstances. "It's not that the Kremlin-controlled outlets, which all but explicitly rooted for Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton last fall, have changed their view of the NY mogul".

Jackman's Logan goes out in a blaze of glory fighting for people he tried so very hard not to care about. He said: "A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie".

This was also quickly proven false.

Solovyov decried Trump's opponents but also criticized the president for branding leading media outlets as "enemies of the people". Chuck Schumer (D-NY) smiling over donuts and coffee with Vladimir Putin.

During his confirmation hearing, Sessions was asked what he would do if anybody associated with the Trump campaign was found to have contacts with Russian Federation. One meeting, around the time of the GOP convention, was brief and involved a group of envoys, including Kislyak. But Trump won the White House by creating his own reality, built on what adviser Kellyanne Conway called "alternative facts". At least four of those visits in 2016 during the presidential campaign.

The Russian embassy did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Of the 22 times included in the report, most of the appointments had five or fewer visitors.

President Donald Trump told reporters Thursday that he has "total" confidence in Jeff Sessions and that he does not believe the Attorney General should recuse himself from the FBI's investigation into alleged contacts between Trump's inner circle and the Russian government. It is the same poll that shows more than half still supporting Trump.

Remarkably, Democrats believe that explanation is not okay for Sessions, but was perfectly acceptable for former Obama attorneys general.

Earlier Michael Flynn had to resign as national security adviser less than a month after taking the position.
