The recent drama surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his alleged ties to Russia, has raised questions about whether he will face the same fate as former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. He resigned on Feb. 13 after he allegedly gave “incomplete information”to Vice President Mike Pence about a phone conversation he had with the U.S. ambassador to Russia, weeks before President Trump took office.
Sessions became the subject of similar scrutiny this week when reports surfaced claiming that he disclosed information about Trump’s campaign to Russian ambassadors during a meeting last year when he was a senator for Alabama.
As a result, Sessions announced on Thursday that he is recusing himself from any future investigations into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. Election.
Given the similarities between the two, 2012 Republican nominee and former Texas Sen. Ron Paul questioned whether the coalition of neoconservatives will “Flynn” Jeff Sessions this time around?
“It looks like we’re going to have a repeat of something that has been going on, but with new actors involved. You know not to long ago, unfortunately from the administration’s viewpoint, they had to actually put Flynn out of the national security advisory position, and it was a result from our understanding, at least my understanding that this was a coalition of anti-Russian neocons—Republicans that were built in a coalition with Democrats—and all of a sudden this was the bad guy.” — Ron Paul
