Has anybody actually read the article? It's more fake news folks.

First clue, "...according to current and former U.S. officials. ...". None of these "officials" are ever named. This is the usual first clue that the story isn't really there.

Second clue that this is all a opium dream

"One U.S. official said that Sessions -- who testified that he has no recollection of an April encounter -- has provided "misleading" statements that are "contradicted by other evidence." A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had "substantive" discussions on matters including Trump's positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration."

Having a discussion with the Russians about a future "administration" run by Trump has not one thing to do with the actual campaign. And, if the Russian's were watching the election as close as the right wing talk show hosts who ALL saw the Trump victory coming, why would they NOT discuss administration policy with the Trump team. In all reality it would be insane if they did not.

Third clue, misdirection.

"Sessions has said repeatedly that he never discussed campaign-related issues with Russian officials and that it was only in his capacity as a U.S. senator that he met with Kislyak."

The two contacts in question were, even by the anonymous sources, about future policy, NOT about the campaign. Supported here, in the same article.

"One U.S. official said that Sessions -- who testified that he has no recollection of an April encounter -- has provided "misleading" statements that are "contradicted by other evidence." A former official said that the intelligence indicates that Sessions and Kislyak had "substantive" discussions on matters including Trump's positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration."

NOTE: The subject is "... U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration. ..." NOT the Trump campaign. WaPo's own sources are saying this. The sources of this story contradict the WaPo's interpretation. Just another clue the story is fake. When you have to lie about what the sources are saying, it is not a good idea to put down WHAT the sources actually say.

Everything in this story is Fake News invented with sources that contradict the story. And, finally we have the only reason this story even exists. So that some lame little wannabe journalist promoting a lie can say this,

"By that point, Russian President Vladimir Putin had decided to embark on a secret campaign to help Trump win the White House by leaking damaging emails about his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, according to U.S. intelligence agencies."

No evidence has been presented to the public to support this claim. Not one thing has been "leaked". Not one. The Russians have denied it. Julian Assange, certainly no fan of Trump has stated repeatedly that his source for the Emails he leaked were NOT Russia.

This story is Fake News. It is a Fake interpretation of possibly Fake Sources, whose account does not even agree with the story at all.
