A shady session. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony revealed very little about the behind-the-scenes behaviour in the White House and more about his political skill at avoiding tough questions, holds Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times. Sessions professed that he would answer as truthfully as possible, only to refer to his right to keep private conversations to himself once revealing topics were approached. He created a smokescreen for the Trump administration. Sessions' cryptic testimony stalled the full truth about Russia's involvement in the US election being uncovered anytime soon.
Standing up to Democratic hassling. The accusations levied against Jeff Sessions are baseless, argues F.H. Buckley of Fox News. Sessions proved his moral soundness with a strong testimonial that should quell the investigation into Trump's alleged links with Russia. He adeptly defended his honor against aggressively inquisitive questioning by Democratic senators. Their techniques tried and failed to throw him off balance in order to get something out of him. The speculation led by James Comey that Sessions had met with the Russian ambassador remains an unsubstantiated claim, which is highly unlikely to be proven.
