Report: Sessions Didn’t Disclose Russia Meetings, DOJ Says

According to a CNN report, Attorney General Jeff Sessions did not disclose meetings he had last year with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he applied for his security clearance. The clearance form requires an applicant to list “any contact” with a “foreign government” or its “representatives” over the past seven years, officials told CNN. Previously, Sessions came under fire for not disclosing the exact same contacts during his Senate confirmation hearing this year. Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said Sessions initially listed an entire year’s worth of meetings with foreign officials, but was later told by an FBI employee who assisted in filling out the form, known as SF-86, that he didn’t need to list meetings with ambassadors while he was a senator. The FBI declined to comment to CNN for the report.
