Republican Attorney General Jeff Sessions is under a microscope once again and people are talking about Jeff Sessions‘ hearing. To learn more about Jeff Sessions’ wife and why he’s currently in the news, have a look at our Mary Blackshear-Sessions wiki.
Who is Mary Blackshear-Sessions?
Mary Blackshear-Sessions’ age is 70 and she’s a Republican, originally from Gadsden, Alabama. Mary and Jeff met as students at Huntingdon College in Montgomery and are both members of the graduating class of 1969, the same year they got married. She was a member of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and is now a retired teacher.
Mary Blackshear-Sessions’ Kids
Mary and Jeff have three children: Mary Abigail Reinhardt, Ruth Sessions-Walk, and Sam Sessions. They also have 10 grandchildren: Jane, Alexa, Gracie, Sophia, Hannah, Joanna, Phoebe, Jim Beau, Lewis, and Nicholas. Ruth’s daughter with John Walk is of Asian descent and an MTV host criticized Jeff for allegedly using her in the past to prove that he’s not racist.
Ruth wrote a letter defending her father, saying, “I am so honored to be my father’s daughter. His accomplishments and job titles aside, I am just so proud of his extreme graciousness towards those that intended him harm. They were relentless and ruthless, and Dad complained not.”
She continued: “They spewed lies and hate, and Dad simply shrugged it off. They chose to attack him when he was not there to set the record straight. Yet, still, in his last chance to dish it right back at them, my Daddy simply wished his colleagues well and asked them to find hope (and progress) through reconciliation with those of the opposite view point. I obviously still have a lot to learn from my Dad.”
Sam has four children and Mary Abigail is married to Cmdr. Paul Reinhardt.
Jeff Sessions’ Hearing
The Trump-Russia investigation is far from over and Jeff was in front of the House judiciary committee for hours, defending that he has never lied under oath. While trying to prove his innocence of not lying under oath (or any other crime) critics believe that he’s only making matters worse for himself.
“I have always told the truth, and I have answered every question as I understood them and to the best of my recollection, as I will continue to do today,” he said angrily via CNN. “I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath. That is a lie.”
Also the phrase “to the best of my recollection” isn’t helping the attorney general, especially since a connection can be drawn that he tends to contradict himself based on bad memory alone. He recently stated that he recalled a meeting with George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to perjury to the FBI, regarding his connections to Russia.
“After reading Papadopoulos’ account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter. But I did not recall this event, which occurred 18 months before my testimony of a few weeks ago, and would gladly have reported it had I remembered it, because I pushed back against his suggestion.”
