Another day, another top Trump administration official embroiled in controversy for lying about contacts with Russia.

This time, it's Attorney General Jeff Sessions. On Wednesday night, The Washington Post reported that contrary to his confirmation hearing testimony (which was under oath), Sessions did have contact with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign, specifically Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. These meetings were confirmed by Justice Department officials.
