Key Words: Sessions on why he forgot key Russia events: Trump campaign was ‘chaos’

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions arrives to testify before a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday on oversight of the Justice Department.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions knew he was in for a grilling from the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday about why he seemed to have forgotten key meetings in the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

So he had an interesting defense — that the Trump campaign was such a mess that it was difficult to track what was going on.

‘It was a brilliant campaign, I think, in many ways. But it was a form of chaos every day, from Day 1. We traveled, sometimes to several places in one day. Sleep was in short supply.’

Sessions said he now remembers a meeting with George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, but only stated that Papadopoulos wasn’t authorized to represent the campaign with the Russia government.
