Congressman Cohen Derails Sessions Russia Hearing To Ask About Weed

Under fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be pressed Tuesday in a House Judiciary Committee hearing over what he knew about contacts between the Trump election campaign last year and Russia

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.

Sessions sought to explain away apparent contradictions in his public statements by portraying President Donald Trump's campaign as an exhausting operation and said he could not be expected to remember specific encounters from more than a year ago. "After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter". "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".

The comment by Sessions to a House of Representatives panel did not reveal any new link between the Trump team and Russian Federation but it was another example of the top USA law enforcement official offering a different version of events as lawmakers try to work out if the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 election.

News reports then emerged showing that Sessions had himself met Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at least twice in 2016. 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.

During an Oval Office meeting with the president on November 1, Pirro denounced Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his refusal to go after Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the deal was approved.

"But, honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats", Mr. Trump said. We know the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, paid for, through the law firm, paid for the dossier [that alleges Trump-Russia ties].

He struggled to answer when asked the same about white groups. Some of the information in the dossier is said to have come directly from the Kremlin.

Some legal experts said there is a strong argument that Sessions committed perjury at an October 18 oversight hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. But in this case Franken asked a straightforward question and the response Sessions gave was misleading, Gershman said.

Conyers - alluding to the racial slur Trump used against Sen. "Is it proper, is that what you're asking?" He added he hoped Sessions "can assure us that the Department is weathering near-daily attacks on its independent by President Trump - and that no office of the Department is being used to pressure the President's political enemies".
