WATCH: Jeff Sessions Asks If There Are ‘Any Russians’ in the Room Before Speech
— CSPAN (@cspan) November 17, 2017
Days after taking questions about inconsistencies in his statements about past contacts with Russians, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made light of the issue with a few jokes before his Federalist Society speech today.
Before Sessions delivered his speech, he started out with some questions:
“Is Ambassador Kislyak in the room?… Before I get started here. Any Russians? Um, anybody been to Russia? Got a cousin in Russia or something?”
Democrats this week confronted Sessions about those Russian contacts, with one congressman accusing him of lying.
