Once again CNN backtracks allegations it reported confidently as facts and evidence of corruption.
In what is becoming a regular occurrence, CNN backtracks a story it once reported with great certitude. They claimed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to disclose meeting with Russians like he was supposed to. When he said that the FBI told him that he didn’t need to report meetings that happened as part of his duties as a Senator, they claimed that wasn’t true.
CNN keeps getting caught at this. I’m beginning to believe they are not lying because they wouldn’t intentionally tell lies that can only be exposed and make them look bad. Rather, they are so arrogant and so prejudiced against Trump their basic competence is undermined.
The Daily Caller reports, “CNN Walks Back Jeff Sessions-Russia Bombshell.”
But yesterday they had to backtrack.
Sessions’ explanation for the non-disclosures is accurate.
“A newly released document shows that the FBI told an aide to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Sessions wasn’t required to disclose foreign contacts that occurred in the course of carrying out his government duties when he was a senator,” CNN’s Evan Perez wrote in the new piece.
Monday’s article indicates that Sessions was following what the FBI told him and was not intentionally trying to mislead the DOJ about his meetings with Russians.
