Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself yesterday from any investigation the Justice Department carries out regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. The announcement came a day after the revelation Sessions had met with the Russian ambassador twice in the course of the campaign despite testifying to Congress he hadn’t. Sessions brushed off the concerns, indicating that the two meetings had nothing to do with the campaign and instead pertained to official government business. Which is cool, but then why, when in Cleveland for the RNC, where he met with the ambassador, did Sessions make two payments of $1,395 to a Sheraton hotel from his campaign account and not his Senate account?

So you’re thinking the scandal is that Sessions virtually admitted he talked to the Russian about campaign business, not Senate business (which he has sort of claimed), by paying for the hotel out of Trump campaign funds?
No. The scandal is: WHY WAS HE STAYING AT AND PAYING A SHERATON HOTEL AND NOT A TRUMP HOTEL?
For this crime alone Sessions should be fired.
