Sessions Target in Russia Campaign Probe

Sessions Target in Russia Campaign Probe

In addition to the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russia's role in USA politics, special counsel Robert Mueller is leading an independent inquiry into Russia's meddling and potential links between Russians and the Trump campaign, after being appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last month. Sessions is expected to face sharp questioning from his former Senate colleagues about his role in the investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"[Sources] are telling me Trump has been very angry with Jeff Sessions for recusing himself in the Russian Federation investigation to begin with, lots of profane conversations and yelling".

-United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions will face questions on Tuesday about his dealings with Russian officials and whether he intentionally misled Congress as a Senate panel investigates the Kremlin's alleged involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"It depends on the scope of the questions", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said when asked whether Sessions would invoke executive privilege.

Comey also has said Sessions did not respond when he complained he didn't "want to get time alone with the president again".

Senators had been pushing for Sessions to appear publicly to answer questions about his contacts with Russian officials during the campaign. But senators on the committee are expected to question Sessions about his meetings with Russians - a topic that's come under increased scrutiny amid investigations into Russia's interference in the US election.

But intelligence committee members at first were unaware of a planned hearing.

Whitney Bermes of the Bozeman Chronicle reported that Gianforte admitted to grabbing Jacobs' wrist during the court appearance. Gianforte said he accepts the sentence , which kept him out of jail and allowed him to avoid having to take a booking photo.

"Look, when it comes to something like obstruction, there's a serious legal standard", Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said on CBS's "Face the Nation" when asked if Comey made a case for obstruction of justice.

A Trump confidant, Chris Ruddy, told "PBS NewsHour" on Monday that the president was weighing whether to fire the special counsel now heading up the investigation, former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

For most Americans as well as for most lawmakers, whether to believe Comey or Trump is not a close contest. "The Senate Intelligence Committee is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information".

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director also testified that he and the agency had believed Sessions was "inevitably going to recuse" for reasons he said he could not elaborate on.

Senate Democrats have raised the possibility that Sessions and Kislyak could have met there, though Justice Department officials say there were no private encounters or side meetings.

Lawmakers, including Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate and to determine if Sessions committed perjury when he denied having had meetings with Russians.
