Происходит какой-то совсем уж shameless shit. Вот что Sessions сказал под присягой:
FRANKEN: CNN just published a story alleging that the intelligence community provided documents to the president-elect last week, that included information that “Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.” These documents also allegedly say “there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” Again, I’m telling you this as it’s coming out, so, you know.

But if it’s true, it’s obviously extremely serious, and if there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?

SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.

FRANKEN: Very well.


Это Sessions сказал в начале января под присягой, а сейчас выяснилось, что он в прошлом году встречался с тем же российским послом Кисляком, из-за разговоров с которым уже погорел Flynn.

Теперь защита Sessions'а вот такая.
Sarah Isgur Flores, director of public affairs for the Department of Justice, went further in a statement to BuzzFeed.

“There was absolutely nothing misleading about his answer. Last year, the Senator had over 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors as a senior member of the Armed Services Committee, including the British, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Indian, Chinese, Canadian, Australian, German and Russian ambassadors,” she said. “He was asked during the hearing about communications between Russia and the Trump campaign—not about meetings he took as a senator and a member of the Armed Services Committee.”
И Sessions лично:
Speaking with NBC, Sessions addresses the situation directly.

“I have not met with any Russians at any time to discuss any political campaign and those remarks are unbelievable to me and are false,” he said. “And I don’t have anything else to say about that.”

Asked if he would recuse himself from an investigation into ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia, Sessions was vague.

“I have said whenever it’s appropriate, I will recuse myself. There’s no doubt about that,” he said.
WTF? Franken даже не спрашивал Sessions'а о том, имел ли тот личные контакты с русскими. Sessions сам почему-то вызвался заявить, что он лично никаких контактов с русскими не имел. Вот его слова еще раз:
I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.
Sessions не говорит о том, что он не имел контактов с русскими в качестве трамповского surrogate. Он не говорит о том, что он не обсуждал с русскими "any political campaign". Он flat out говорит "I did not have communications with the Russians".

Нет, ну елки-палки.

Зачем вырывать цитату из общего предложения: "I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it." Т.е. понятно, что речь шла конкретно о кампании и в связи с ней встречами с россиянами.

Опередили!

Я, правда, дальше слов "по поводу новых воплей о том, что Sessions встречался с русским послом и, как утверждают Демократы, соврал Конгрессу, что не встречался ни с какими русскими, спешу всех успокоить - не соврал." не читал, да и зачем? Раз [livejournal.com profile] arbat пишет, что беспокоиться не надо, значит так оно и есть.

Терпению моему есть предел, все же. Как я "вырвал цитату", когда я привел цитируемое Вами предложение?

Да не идет об этом речь. То есть я не могу знать что там Сешнс думал в своей голове. Но он прямо сказал, что не встречался с русскими. Не "не встречался в таком-то качестве", не "встречался, но кампанию мы не обсуждали". Просто не встречался, хотя меня и называли surrogate.

При том, повторя, что Франкен даже не спрашивал его, о том встречался ли он лично с русскими. Это была сугубо инициатива Сешнса сообщить об этом.

Ключевой момент тут такой.

Если Трамп неоднократно рассыпался в похвалах Путину в 2013-2015, Сешнс в этом не был замечен и придерживался стандартной республиканской линии. Леонид Бершидский, не самый глупый журналист, в марте 2016 написал по этому поводу заметку:
https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2016-03-04/trump-s-national-security-adviser-is-no-admirer-of-putin

Там приводится цитата из интервью Сешнса в марте 2015:

What do you expect next from Russia?

Sessions: Well, there's a danger that they may continue this overreach. They just solidified power in Georgia, in South Ossetia. That was I think in the last week. Pressure is still on Ukraine. We don't know whether the Minsk Agreement will hold, I don't think it's holding very well now. We have the Estonians, the Lithuanians, the Romanians, they're very worried. This is reality, I wish it weren't, but I'm afraid it is. It needs to be clear that Russia knows that there will be a high price to pay if this behavior continues.

If Minsk breaks down, at what point does the president have to act and supply Ukraine with lethal weaponry? What is the breaking point? We know from what Victoria Nuland said that the administration hasn't decided yet.

Sessions: From what I understand from this conference, I think it's clear that Germany has said publicly that they will support harsher sanctions and more military support if the Minsk Agreement fails. And that will be key. Merkel has worked very very hard to establish a relationship with Putin and Russia. It's been a good-faith effort. If it fails, I would hope that Europe and the United States would have to unify and push back more firmly against Russian overreach.

http://www.realclearworld.com/blog/2015/03/interview_with_jeff_sessions_us_and_europe_have_to_unify_against_russia_111076.html

Теперь перенесемся в июль 2016, время встречи Сешнса с Кисляком. Вскоре после этой встречи Сешнс приходит на CNN и неожиданно оказывается не в состоянии ответить на прямой вопрос "Is Putin a good man or a bad man?"

SESSIONS: ...this whole problem with Russia is really disastrous for America, for Russia and for the world. Donald Trump is right. We need to figure out a way to end this cycle of hostility that's putting this country at risk, costing us billions of dollars in defense, and creating hostilities --

ACOSTA: But is he right about saying that he has no investments in Russia? Is he right when he says he has no --

SESSIONS: I don't think anything about -- look, that's not the big issue for America today, whether -- that's not the big issue. The big issue is, can we, should we be able to create a new and positive relationship with Russia? I think it's -- is -- that makes no sense that we are at the hostility level we are.

ACOSTA: Do you in your view is Vladimir Putin a good leader or a bad leader? Is he a good man or a bad man, in your view?

SESSIONS: What we need -- we have a lot of bad leaders around the world that operate in ways we would never tolerate in the United States. But the question is can we have a more peaceful, effective relationship with Russia. Utilizing interests that are similar in a realistic way to make this world a safer place and get off this dangerous hostility with Russia. I think it's possible...

Очень похоже на путинских троллей снова. Одновременное отрицание и "все ведут себя так же и даже намного хуже".

Только в данном случае отрицание совсем странно выглядит. Так как речь идет о единственном предложении, сказанном публично.

И, как [livejournal.com profile] angerona верно отмечает (http://angerona.livejournal.com/1572989.html), Сешнс, все же, не Трамп, которого нужно понимать не буквально а ... как-то иначе, а целый адвокат.

Heartbroken Russian Ambassador Thought Special Meetings With Jeff Sessions Were Very Memorable

Expressing surprise and sadness at Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ repeated denials of contact with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, heartbroken Ambassador Sergey Kislyak told reporters Thursday that he thought his special meetings with the then–Alabama senator were actually very memorable. “To be honest, our two conversations hold great significance for me, and I can’t help but be upset to learn that Jeff felt otherwise,” said the tearful Russian diplomat. “It really hurts to think that Jeff doesn’t cherish the afternoons we spent sitting in his office exchanging information about everything under the sun. These were some of the most meaningful discussions of my life, and Jeff’s writing them off like they didn’t even happen. How could he be so cruel?” Kislyak went on to say that even his subsequent communications with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn never for a moment made him forget the precious time he and Sessions spent together.

Sergey Kislyak, the least memorable man in the world

He has spoken to senators.

He has spoken to generals, both regular and soon-to-be-attorney.

But as soon as he speaks his words vanish, as if they had never been.

No one can definitively state that they were in the room with him at any time. (This must create certain difficulties in his job as Russia’s ambassador to the United States.)

His name is Sergey Kislyak, and he is the Most Forgettable Man in the World.

He has made many phone calls. But it is only with great difficulty that intelligence agencies were able to make any record of these calls. His voice, like a tree falling alone in a Siberian forest, never makes a sound.

He once slept on a memory-foam mattress and left no impression whatsoever.

Pigeons often fly directly into him, mistaking him for empty space.

It must be difficult to be so mild and self-effacing in a position of such international importance. How does he conduct diplomacy when no one can remember ever seeing or hearing him? Even Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who denounced Sessions for communing with him, discovered to her horror that SHE, TOO, had shared a group meeting with him.

Possibly we have all met with Kislyak and our minds are just shielding us from this knowledge.

Т.е. и до левых начинает доходить вся глупость ситуации, куда они себя и остальных неразумно вгоняют. Шутить начали. Даже над собой.

По-моему, я Вам уже говорил, чтобы Вы не замусоривали комментарии. Если Вы хотите обсудить визит Порошенко, напишите об этом в своем журнале, или оставьте комментарий к записи об этом.

В любом случае, я больше повторять не буду.

Все больше возникает ощущение, что вот-вот объявят "вас снимают скрытой камерой". Причем должности любителей пообщаться с российским послом, а потом забыть начисто, о чем, впечатляют отдельно.
Забавный момент с русскоязычными трампистами. То, что украинские трамписты предпочли Трампа интересам Украины, не было особым сюрпризом. Кажется довольно правдоподобным, что еврейские трамписты, если что, насрут на Израиль; собственно, потихоньку уже. Но вот то, что русскоязычные трамписты оказались массово нелояльны США, это уже впечатляет. Там же вроде присягу при получении гражданства дают? Русскоязычные трамписты при этом любят подрочить на маккартизм и депортацию, интересное сочетание.
Ну и с точки зрения наличия принципов. Здесь бабруйцы от ваты отличаются. Если вата еще хотя бы иногда высказывала недовольство Путиным, то бабруйцы от Трампа и желтые звезды, скорее всего, примут с благодарностью. Какой-то абсолютный этический ноль, идеальная сервильность.

Сколько пафоса и толерантности. Особенно, умиляет отказ от Израиля в плане самой проосионистской администрации чуть ли не за всю историю. И от кого?! Сторонника Обамы-Клинтон. Поумерили бы.

Сам факт, что сам факт беседы с российским послом рассматривается как нечто постыдное и подлежащее то ли укрыванию, то ли оправдыванию, уже сам по себе не может не вызывать чувства глубокого удовлетворения. А все остальное, по большому счету, мелочи. Кому сейчас есть дело до тонкостей смысловых нюансов биллклинтоновского слова "is"?..
