Trump's attorney general to face Russian Federation questions

14 June, 2017, 07:12 | Author: Rickey Alvarado

Attorney General Jeff Sessions agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.

As part of his role on the foreign affairs committee, Kinzinger said he meets with a lot of ambassadors and doesn't always remember whom he met.

"The president made clear in the Rose Garden last week that he would have an announcement shortly", Spicer said.

Whatever they are, they're "facts that I can't discuss in an open setting", Comey said.

A day after The Washington Post reported that, Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation. The White House has denied any collusion with Russian Federation.

Trump still has not confirmed whether or not tapes exist and, when pressed about it Friday, said, "I'll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future".

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the USA election.

Media reports last week said Mr Sessions had offered to resign because of tensions with the president.

Questions have arisen about Sessions' own involvement in the Trump campaign and his meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the US.

Sessions will testify at a public hearing of the Senate intelligence committee Tuesday afternoon, the committee said in a statement.

After the meeting, Comey told Sessions that he did not want to be alone anymore with Trump and "it can't happen that you get kicked out of the room and the president talks to me". While Sessions used to frequently answer questions from reporters after public appearances discussing his criminal justice initiatives, he stopped in late April, just before Comey was dismissed.

New questions about Sessions emerged last week, after former FBI Director James Comey said he and other leaders at the agency had expected Sessions to recuse himself weeks before he did so - and that the reasons behind that thinking are classified.

Conway also said Comey's testimony showed President Donald Trump was not under investigation.

On "Fox & Friends" Monday, Conway noted Comey's testimony that Loretta Lynch, as President Barack Obama's attorney general, directed him to describe the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's email practices as a "matter" and to avoid calling it an investigation. While Comey did not run to tell Sessions of his concerns over what the President supposedly said about the investigation of Michael Flynn, Comey did say he asked Sessions to shield him from Mr. Trump, anxious by the President's phone calls and questions. White House frustrations with the Justice Department spilled into public view last week, when Trump on Twitter criticized the legal strategy in defending his proposed travel ban. Reed was on "Fox News Sunday".

Trump has been coy about whether any recordings exist of his private conversations with Comey, who was sacked by the president in May. "What exactly does he know about the discussion between Comey and President Trump?"

Democrats said Sessions needs to resolve conflicting evidence about contacts with Russians and to explain if and why he recommended Comey's firing by Trump, an action that could be a violation of his recusal.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer didn't address questions about potential recordings on Monday.
