Trump Immediately Responds to Damning Leak On AG Sessions, He's Not Happy
The officials who talked to WaPo about the alleged conversations pointed out that information coming from the Kremlin can be unreliable. They acknowledge that it is possible the ambassador could have overstated the conversation he had with Sessions. It’s also worth noting that the Russians have a tendency to give U.S intelligence agencies false information to confuse them.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed material related to President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign with a Russian ambassador, according to a Friday Washington Post report.

Current and former U.S. officials told WaPo U.S. spy agencies had intercepted a conversations between Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and his superiors that allegedly reveal he and Sessions discussed material in relation to the 2016 campaign.

According to one former official, the two men talked about Trump and his position on Russia, as well as how relations between the two countries would look with Trump as president. The conversations between Kislyak and his superiors reveal that he and Sessions allegedly met in April 2016 at the Washington, D.C,. Mayflower Hotel before Trump gave his foreign policy speech, and another time during the Republican National Convention.
