Some reactions to the blockbuster revelation of contacts between Attorney General of the Confederate States of America and evil elf Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and the Russian ambassador while Beauregard was an advisor to the campaign of neo- fascist Putin poodle Donald "Rump" Trump:

Misleading the Senate in sworn testimony about one own contacts with the Russians is a good way to go to jail https://t.co/qH0s6sTMJ9— Richard W. Painter (@RWPUSA) March 2, 2017

It's not illegal for a Senator to speak w the Russian Ambassador. So why lie about it under oath? Makes no sense, unless...— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) March 2, 2017
So, except for his AG, ex nat sec.adviser, & former campaign manager, so far, trump associates didn't have contact w russia during campaign— Laura Rozen (@lrozen) March 2, 2017

Evan Perez just said it on CNN, so I suppose I can here: Kislyak wasn't just ambassador, he was Russia's "top spy recruiter" in D.C.: SVR.— Michael Weiss (@michaeldweiss) March 2, 2017
The pursuit of Rump's campaign ties to Russia is just the first course; the main course will be when information comes out (and it will) showing the controlling leverage Russia has over him =cough= loans underpinning his companies? = cough= Russian mob? =cough=. Let's see those tax returns for starters, shall we? We know you're out there!
BONUS: From Dan Rather, who knows about these things as the former CBS White House correspondent during Watergate, "The fuse is lit."
