Attorney General Jeff Sessions' conversations with a Russian ambassador last year on issues central to Donald Trump's presidential campaign were "treasonous and he should resign," former CIA officer Robert Baer said Friday.

"All of these leaks from the Kislyak conversations back to Moscow have proven to be right," Baer told Don Lemon on CNN. "I think this is just horrendous.

"Colluding with a foreign power, a hostile foreign power – it is treasonous."

The Washington Post reported Friday Ambassador Sergey Kislyak told his Moscow supervisors that he and Sessions had "substantive" talks on Trump's positions on Russia and on "U.S.-Russia relations in a Trump administration."

Kislyak's telephone conversations had been intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies, the Post reported, and the evidence flew in the face of early assertions by Sessions that he did not meet with any Russians during the campaign.

"It is not technically indictable," Baer told Lemon, referring to Sessions' conversations. "But for a former intelligence officer, it is treasonous and he should resign."
