As somebody who remembers the outrage from some who were in attendance at the 2016 RNC convention, in Cleveland, I wondered how long it would be before somebody brought this to special counsel Robert Mueller’s attention.
Now, according to Reuters, Mueller’s team have made their way back to Cleveland, Ohio’s Quicken Loans Arena, and the events that transpired through that four day event.
There are several events that sources say Mueller is interested in digging into. One would be then-Senator Jeff Sessions’ contact with Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.
Investigators have asked detailed questions about conversations that Sessions, then a Trump campaign adviser, had at a convention event attended by then-Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak, said the first source, who was questioned by Mueller about the event.
The same source said Mueller’s team also has been asking whether Sessions had private discussions with Kislyak on the sidelines of a campaign speech Trump gave at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel in April 2016.
Sessions’ spokespersons have denied repeatedly that he had any private discussions with Kislyak at the Mayflower, although Sessions has admitted to speaking briefly to Kislyak at the event.
It’s those brief, in-passing moments that keep coming up, and that were the reason Sessions had to recuse himself from the ongoing Russia probe…..
