AG Sessions to testify in public hearing before Senate committee

AG Sessions to testify in public hearing before Senate committee

Sessions recused himself from overseeing the federal investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia back in March after admitting he met twice previous year with the Russian ambassador to the US.

The nation's top law enforcement official, Sessions recused himself from supervising the Russia investigation after he came under criticism for failing to disclose two meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador. Media reports last week said Sessions offered to resign because of tensions with the president over his decision to recuse himself from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Russian Federation probe.

Sessions is skipping a separate hearing on Tuesday on the Justice Department's budget and sending his deputy for the session that will be open to the public.

"We also were aware of facts that I can not discuss in an open setting that would make his continued engagement in a Russia-related investigation problematic", Mr Comey said. He did so after it emerged that he had met the Russian ambassador at least twice a year ago, though he had testified at his confirmation hearing that he had not had contact with Russians.

Senators had been pushing for Sessions to appear publicly to answer questions about his contacts with Russian officials during the campaign. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Feinstein, formally requested Comey's memos of his meeting with Trump from Comey's friend Daniel Richman. It involves an effort to roll out an increase in apprenticeship programs for blue-collar workers, which the White House says is a key part of Trump's agenda. "Totally illegal?" Trump said in a tweet. "I have not had a discussion with him about that", Spicer said.

In addition to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation on Russia, special counsel Robert Mueller is leading an independent inquiry into Russia's election meddling and potential links between Russians and the Trump campaign.

A Sessions spokeswoman said she did not know if it would be public.

On Wednesday, written testimony by Comey about his alleged interactions with President Donald Trump was released in which the ex-director noted that he asked Sessions "prevent any future direct communication" between Trump and himself after the two shared a private dinner on January 27 and a one-on-one Oval Office meeting on February 14 that Comey found to be "inappropriate". Edward M. Kennedy, said Sessions is in a "tough spot" because he'll be expected to channel Trump's bombastic lines of defense while also defusing the controversy.

Here's why Sessions is at the center of so much, and here's how he can help us better understand the still-unraveling Trump-Russia-FBI investigation.

Sessions announced he wanted to testify in public in a statement released on Monday.

Fellow Republicans, meanwhile, pressed Trump to come clean about whether he has tapes of private conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey and provide them to Congress if he does - or possibly face a subpoena.

On Comey's accusations that Trump pressed him to drop the FBI investigation of Flynn, Bharara said "no one knows right now whether there is a provable case of obstruction" of justice.

GOP strategist Ryan Williams, a former spokesman for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, said Sessions could use this fact pattern to distance himself.

"You may be the first president in history to go down because you can't stop inappropriately talking about an investigation that, if you just were quiet, would clear you", Mr.
