Jeff Sessions First Contacted The Russian Ambassador About... Poultry

Long before the current crisis, Jeff Sessions contacted Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about a poultry ban that was hurting American farmers. From a September 2, 2010 article in the Press-Register in Mobile, AL:

In January, Russia - a major market for chicken exports - barred incoming U.S. chicken over concerns regarding the anti-microbial chlorine rinses used to disinfect the meat.

Then in June, President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said they reached an agreement to lift the ban, but the exports never resumed.

Earlier this week, U.S. Sens. Thad Cochran, R-Oxford; Jeff Sessions, R-Mobile; and 28 other senators wrote Sergey Kislyak, ambassador of the Russian Federation to the U.S., concerned with "Russia's failure to honor" the agreement.

I have nothing to add.

TRUMP TALES OF TERROR is about ugly creatures, murderous fantasies, and apocalyptic worlds – and they’re right in America. YOU CAN BUY IT HERE.
