Those feeling a bit let down by the positive response to President Trump’s well-received joint address before Congress the night before lit up Wednesday night after the Washington Post reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke twice in 2016 with the Russian ambassador, conflicting a claim made under oath that he did not have communications with the Russians.

Don’t worry: the Republicans are on it.

A spokesperson denies that Sessions misled the Senate in his testimony, as his contact with the Russians was made not in connection with the election but with his work on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the FBI has been leading an investigation into Sessions’ contacts with Russian officials.

At the moment most people online are trying to figure out if a special prosecutor is needed or if Sessions is already guilty of perjury and perhaps treason.

It look her press office just a little longer to type, but Rep. Nancy Pelosi is also calling for Sessions to resign immediately.
