Marc Lotter, former spokesman for the roundly denied by Americans Pence campaign and current mouthpiece for the trying-to-keep-Mike-Pence-out-of-jail-please campaign, was on Nicole Wallace's MSNBC show Thursday. Wallace was holding a roundtable to discuss the current state of what we know about the Mueller investigation and more specifically how terrifying it must be for White House officials to know that George Papadopoulos had pled guilty months ago and may very well have been wired while having meetings with other officials.

Lotter came on with the kind of incompetent bluster that usually only passes for a Fox News opening monologue where he said that Papadopoulos was both a low level guy with no access and also a guy with high level access who was incompetent. Did your brain freeze yet? Wallace was having none of it.

Wallace: I just want to get your position clear in my mind. So your explanation is that he was too low level or that he was too incompetent? I don't understand your position?

Lotter: I wasn't in the meeting.

Wallace: Jeff sessions, who was neither incompetent nor low level. It got all the way to Jeff sessions, this pitch, this idea that he'd use his Russian contacts to put Donald Trump in the room --

Lotter: I'm not sure if that's the way it was phrased. I wasn't in that meeting.

Wallace: No one is denying Jeff Sessions nixed a meeting.

Lotter: What I've read in public reporting is that his story has varied between setting up a meeting to establish better contacts, discussions of dirt, discussions of all of these things. We don't know what was pitched in the meeting. I've had contact with somebody who would like to set up a meeting with the -- with Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump going forward. I don't know -- it was immediately killed. I was not in that --

Wallace: You don't know if it was immediately killed --

Lotter: No, what was reported by "The New York Times" was that Jeff Sessions said --

Wallace: You just said he was low level. Would you agree that Jeff Sessions was pretty high level.
