Al Franken Reveals He Got Jeff Sessions Busted By Sending A Letter To The FBI

Last updated on July 19th, 2017 at 10:26 am

During an interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on The Last Word, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) revealed that he sent a letter to the FBI after he found out about Jeff Sessions unreported contact with Russian ambassador.

Franken said, “In fact, Sen. Leahy whose also on the Judiciary Committee and I sent a private letter to then CIA Director Comey, sorry, FBI Director Comey asking him and the FBI to investigate whether, in fact, Sessions had met other times with Russians including this meeting we’re talking about in The Mayflower.”

Sen. Franken confirmed when asked that he knew about the meeting in The Mayflower when he sent that letter to the FBI. He said, “It had been characterized one way, but we had some concerns that that wasn’t the case.”

Franken has been a problem for Jeff Sessions since the confirmation hearings. Sen. Franken said during the MSNBC interview that he isn’t some master 3D chess player who anticipates his opponents moves in advances, but something about Sessions’ answers set off enough alarm bells for Franken and Sen. Patrick Leahy to send a private letter to FBI asking them to investigate Sessions’ meetings with the Russians.

Whether Franken wants to admit it or not, it appears that he is a big part of the reason why Jeff Sessions is under investigation.
