Sessions to testify on Russian Federation before House Judiciary Committee

"We intend to ask you about these inconsistencies", the committee's Democratic members said in a November 7 letter to Sessions, who has recused himself from investigations into the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that Moscow meddled in the 2016 USA election to help then-Republican candidate Donald Trump's campaign.

Sessions, a former U.S. Senator who was involved in Trump's campaign, has repeatedly denied misleading Congress, saying his prior statements under oath were all true.

"You said one time that good people don't smoke marijuana", Cohen said, referring to statements Sessions made as a Senator previous year.

"To announce recusal from any investigation would confirm the existence of that investigation, and top officials have advised me I should not do so", Sessions said.

Rep. John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat, displayed copies of a series of recent tweets from Mr. Trump in which the president called for an investigation into Russia's 2010 purchase of uranium rights and donations to the Clinton Foundation while Mrs. Clinton led the State Department. "We do our duty everyday based on the facts".

"I did not, and I'm not aware of anyone else that did, and I don't believe it happened", Sessions said in his former testimony.

At his confirmation hearing to be attorney general, Sessions claimed he "did not have communications with the Russians" during the campaign.

Sessions testified that he now remembers the meeting Papadopoulos, but his memory about conversations is limited. "I have always told the truth, and I have answered every question as I understood them and to the best of my recollection, as I will continue to do today ..." Papadopoulos, in pleading guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, has admitted he told Trump and a group of other campaign officials, including Sessions, that he had contacts who could help arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin.

Jordan has led the charge of GOP lawmakers calling for a special counsel investigation to be launched in addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Elsewhere in his testimony, Sessions disappointed congressional Republicans by saying that the Justice Department would need a "factual basis" to appoint a second special counsel tasked with investigating Hillary Clinton's role in the Uranium One deal, and that no such basis now exists.

Boyd did acknowledge that the senior prosecutors would determine if any matters under investigation would merit the appointment of a special counsel. [John] Danforth took over that investigation as special counsel - and Mr. Mueller. That letter raised immediate concerns about the possible politicization of the DOJ because it seemed Sessions was willing to use right-wing talking points endorsed by the White House as grounds for a criminal probe into Clinton's time at the State Department. "It sure looks like the FBI was paying the author of that document and it sure looks like a major political party was working with the federal government" to damage Trump, Jordan said.
