Sessions On Hot Seat

Jun 14, 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The Attorney General emphatically denied that he or any of Trump’s advisors worked with the Russians to affect the outcome of the election. Sessions revealed that he began exploring his recusal from the Russian investigation from his first day in office and decided that recusing himself would be appropriate and the right thing. To the exasperation of several Senators, Sessions declined to answer certain questions about his conversation with the president. He asserted that it was a long standing practice of the Department of Justice to protect confidential discussions with the president. Finally, Sessions said that numerous investigation are ongoing to identify leakers within the government.
