Sessions: 'Always told the truth' regarding Russian Federation contacts

  • Sessions Leahy

The revelation came in a response from the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., who in July and again in September called for Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate concerns he had related to the 2016 election and its aftermath. In that written statement, the former Trump campaign national security adviser claimed that he had told Sessions about "connections" he had that "could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President Putin" in March of past year.

Sessions said during January's confirmation hearing that he was unaware of communications between the campaign and Russian Federation.

Sessions has faced repeated questions from senators about his role in the campaign and the investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

"I have not been improperly influenced and would not be improperly influenced", Mr. Sessions said.

Gershman said Sessions' statement that he did not recall Papadopoulos' remarks at the meeting would raise skepticism since Sessions led the meeting, Trump attended it and important national security matters were discussed. But it was a form of chaos every day from day one.

Testimony before Congress has proved to be something of a thorn in Sessions's side.

Sessions testified that he now remembers the meeting Papadopoulos, but his memory about conversations is limited.

The hearing is the first time Sessions will testify before the House Judiciary Committee, and members are also likely to press the attorney general on all the ways he has reshaped the Justice Department in his nine months on the job.

Macron Urged to Be Fair, Have Foresight
The Saudis are in full support of President Trump's decision not to certify Iran as in compliance with Obama's treacherous "deal". Macron's visit this week to Abu Dhabi came amid renewed tensions between regional arch-rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia.

"But I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath". Charging documents in that case indicate that Papadopoulos told the council "that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump" and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sessions repeatedly declined to answer questions related to the infamous dossier about Donald Trump prepared by retired British agent Christopher Steele, saying he would have to refer questions to the investigation by Mueller.

Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee advised Sessions in a letter last week that they meant to press him on what they said were "inconsistencies" between the attorney general's past statements and the new revelations.

As such, Pirro has offered Trump advice on matters foreign and domestic, with a recent report indicating that she advised the president to appoint a special counsel to investigate the alleged misdeeds of Hillary Clinton, including the former secretary of state's involvement with the Uranium One deal. "Each of those are pretty special, factual situations", Sessions said, "and we will use the proper standards". Mr. Mueller was the F.B.I. director at the time.

Naming a second special prosecutor would mean dueling investigations aimed at both the White House and the candidate who lost the election, a first in US history.
