Rep. Ted Lieu DESTROYS Jeff Sessions In Hearing, “You’re Either Lying Now, Or You Lied Then”

Rep. Ted Lieu DESTROYS Jeff Sessions In Hearing, “You’re Either Lying Now, Or You Lied Then”
    On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was called in front of the House Judiciary
    Committee for reasons that, to be quite honest, are a little unclear.
    They said the meeting, or the questioning, the hearing, whatever it is going to be, is
    going to be more about oversight of the Department of Justice.
    However, Republicans only used the opportunity to goad Jeff Sessions into launching an investigation
    into Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton and Uranium One and Barack Obama and, basically,
    any Democrat who they've ever seen in their lives.
    They were trying to push Jeff Sessions during this hearing to launch investigations into
    Jeff Sessions, to his credit, said "looks like" is not grounds for a full-blown investigation,
    even though he had hinted the day before that he wanted to launch an investigation.
    That's neither here nor there.
    The big takeaway from Tuesday's hearing with Jeff Sessions happened when Democratic Representative
    Ted Lieu decided to ask Jeff Sessions exactly how he was lying and, to be honest, when he
    was lying.
    Take a look.
    As Attorney General, you have security clearance, correct?
    To get that security clearance, you submitted a security clearance application, also known
    as an SF86 form, correct?
    That's correct.
    I submitted such a form when I served in active duty in the U.S. Air Force, and the form requires
    you to certify under penalty of perjury that information submitted was true, complete and
    correct to the best of your knowledge.
    You certified your security clearance form, correct?
    That is correct.
    I'm going to, on the video screen, show you a question from that form, and it says, "Have
    you or any of your immediate family in the past seven years had any contact with a foreign
    government, its establishment, such as embassy, consulate, agency, military service, intelligence
    or security service, etc., or its representatives, whether inside or outside the U.S.?"
    The answer that you gave was "No."
    What you just told us under oath was exactly the opposite.
    I'm going to ask you, Mr. Sessions, were you lying then when you filled out the form, or
    are you lying now?
    What I was told by my executive assistant when we did this form earlier, and then again
    when I was nominated for Attorney General, that the FBI authority says members of Congress
    and effectively government officials, meeting people on an official basis, you were not
    required to list all these contacts.
    Nothing in that question says you get to answer any differently because you are a U.S. Senator
    rather than, say, a young police officer.
    Isn't that right?
    Well, I-
    Nothing in that question authorizes you to answer any differently, isn't that right?
    I would say that-
    I didn't go to law school.
    I know a lot about the law, I work with a lot of lawyers.
    What I will say is that it kind of seems like Representative Lieu just laid out the case
    for perjury charges to be brought against Jeff Sessions.
    It's pretty black and white right there on the screen.
    He either lied then, or he is lying now.
    We know that back when he had to testify in front of the Senate, Jeff Sessions had said,
    "I had no contact with the Russians."
    As it turns out, he had two contacts at least with Sergey Kislyak that he, oops, didn't
    recall at the time.
    Then later on, he said, no, nobody in the campaign had any kind of contact with anybody
    other than those things, and it turns out that was a lie, because he was in that meeting
    with Papadopoulos, where Papadopoulos said, "Hey, I've got Russians that want to meet
    with us."
    Jeff Sessions said, nah, it's probably a bad idea.
    He didn't disclose that, either.
    My guess is that, yeah, Jeff Sessions lied in that previous one and, to be honest, he's
    probably also lying in the Tuesday hearing.
    During the entire year, Jeff Sessions kept repeating the lines, "I do not recall.
    I can't recall.
    I don't recollect.
    I don't remember."
    That kind of seems like what somebody who's trying to cover up something would continue
    to say, which is exactly the case of Jeff Sessions at this point.
    Why some kind of investigation into Jeff Sessions hasn't begun is absolutely beyond me.
    It also helps to explain why the Republicans in that hearing were so hell-bent on getting
    Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation into Democrats.
    They'll try anything at this point to pull away from the fact that, one, their President
    is under investigation and, number two, the Department of Justice had, Attorney General
    Jeff Sessions, has clearly lied under oath, he's lied on his forms and he's lying to the
    American public at every possible chance he can get when he's under oath.
    Those sound like crimes worthy
    of investigation.
