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

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 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.

"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.
