New information from a former Trump campaign advisor now suggests Attorney General Jeff Sessions knew of campaign officials' contact with Russians, despite telling senators in sworn testimony in January that he did not. This is a clear-cut example of perjury.
It's now known that not only did Sessions personally shut down former campaign advisor George Papadopulos' proposed meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin during a March 31 meeting, but Carter Page -- another ex-foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign -- testified that he told Sessions he was traveling to Russia as an envoy of the campaign. This flies in the face of Sessions' prior insistence that he had no knowledge of Trump campaign officials having contact with Russian officials during his initial confirmation hearings.
If the Attorney General did in fact commit perjury, then a Congressional investigation should be opened to determine if the United States' top law enforcement official broke federal law. Because perjury is a felony under federal law and punishable by up to five years in prison, this would warrant a felony charge for Jeff Sessions, and possibly impeachment.
