Putin Rides To Sessions’ Defense

(AP) A senior lawmaker called it “hysteria.” The Foreign Ministry said it was “media vandalism.” And the Kremlin lamented the “emotional atmosphere” currently in Washington about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ meetings with a Russian diplomat, saying it could thwart efforts to mend relations.

President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters he did not know anything about the meetings last year between Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and Sessions, who at that time was a U.S. senator. Sessions also was a policy adviser to Trump’s campaign.

    Moscow has it exactly right: the president’s critics/foes , all Russian/communist sympathizers and apologists themselves, who have looked the other way at Russian aggression for 8 years at least, definitely do not want him to succeed in forming a “rapprochement” with Russia. And that’s true of many establishment Republicans as well who went silent while Obama became a Putin enabler. But more important, Russia is a convenient device the Democrats believe they can now use to force the president to resign or at least damage his administration by distracting it endlessly,and disheartening the president. FAT CHANCE!
