Trevor Noah Gives Jeff Sessions’s Russian Ties the Investigation Sessions Definitely Isn’t Doing Himself

Yesterday, the news broke that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will recuse himself from investigations into inappropriate ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia. As Trevor Noah explains, that’s because Sessions, who said he hadn’t had contact with Russia during congressional hearings, had in fact met with the Russian ambassador. “He lied under oath,”
Noah jokes, “while interviewing to be the guy who prosecutes people for lying under oath.” Sessions claims that his discussions with the Russians were unmemorable and irrelevant to the questions he was asked, but Noah points out that “if you meet a Russian, you’ll remember that shit.” Yeah, especially if that Russian is Keri Russell in a wig.
