WaPo Fake News Obsession Continues: Sessions met with Russian envoy twice last year, encounters he later did not disclose

The Washington Post is a disgrace and totally bereft of any credibility anymore. 
The contact Jeff Sessions had with Russians was as a result of his routine duties as senator on the armed services committee.  But, the Washington Post is only interested in reporting innuendo to feed the corrupt media's obsession with fake news to explain away why Hillary what's her name was destroyed in the presidential election.  How pathetic is that?  

Washington Post reports then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) spoke twice last year with Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Justice Department officials said, encounters he did not disclose when asked about possible contacts between members of President Trump’s campaign and representatives of Moscow during Sessions’s confirmation hearing to become attorney general.

One of the meetings was a private conversation between Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that took place in September in the senator’s office, at the height of what U.S. intelligence officials say was a Russian cyber campaign to upend the U.S. presidential race.

The previously undisclosed discussions could fuel new congressional calls for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 presidential election. As attorney general, Sessions oversees the Justice Department and the FBI, which have been leading investigations into Russian meddling and any links to Trump’s associates. He has so far resisted calls to recuse himself.

When Sessions spoke with Kislyak in July and September, the senator was a senior member of the influential Armed Services Committee as well as one of Trump’s top foreign policy advisers. Sessions played a prominent role supporting Trump on the stump after formally joining the campaign in February 2016.

Mind you no laws were broken.  There is no there there.  But, the corrupt media machine doesn't care and that's exactly why they are corrupt!
