Being under oath before the Senate Intelligence Committee truly shows your true-life colors.
While James Comey came across forthright and fatherly in last week’s testimony, Tuesday’s courtroom drama built Jeff Sessions seem super salty!
Not only did Sessions call any suggestion that he colluded with Russians during the election an “appalling lie, ” he said he would not discuss any direct conversations with the President, per his duty “to protect confidential communications with the president.”
Sessions made it clear that he was “not stonewalling” after Democratic senators accused him of not fully answering their questions — though Twitics couldn’t help but point out the Attorney General continued to evde( AKA, “I don’t recall that”) most of the issues to thrown at him.
The Alabama native was visibly on edge in all areas of the hearing, particularly when being questioned by Senator Kamala Harris, who he admitted built him “nervous” while jogging about never having met with Russian ambassadors at the Republican National Convention.
Or … maybe he did? There were a lot of people there, OK?
In true-life Trumpian manner, #JeffSessions claims “I am not stonewalling, ” then proceeds to do nothing but stonewall questioning.
We see you.

Wait. Sessions earlier said he has not sought any information about Russia. Now he says he raised concerns about Russia invading Ukraine.
