I'm not sure how that's relevant, could you explain? The guy said, under oath "I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I didn’t have — did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it." There is proof that he did have communications with Russians. What does it matter if he's a senator or not? That really sounds like lying under oath to me, and I'm not sure what can change that fact.
I thought the thing that brought down Flynn was a transcript showing that Flynn had promised to end sanctions while Obama was hitting the Russians. Without a transcript, I think the GOP was just going to give sessions the benefit of the doubt.
