Did Sessions break the law by denying knowledge of Russian Federation contacts?


That letter informed members that federal prosecutors are looking into whether a special counsel should be appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton. It was a brilliant campaign in many ways.

"These senior prosecutors will report directly to the attorney general and the deputy attorney general, as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not now under investigation should be opened, whether any matters now under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit a special counsel", said the senior official, Stephen E. Boyd, an assistant attorney general.

"In all of my testimony, I can only do my best to answer all of your questions as I understand them and to the best of my memory".

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. When The Washington Post later revealed he had twice spoken with Russia's ambassador to the United States, he revised his account, saying he had no meetings with Russians "to discuss issues of the campaign". That time, he said he conducted no "improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding a campaign or any other item facing this country", though he allowed it was possible in one of his conversations "some comment was made about what Trump's positions were". Sessions supervised the advisory group on which Papadopoulos sat and reportedly rejected his suggestion for Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet. Trump has repeatedly voiced frustration about the Mueller probe and publicly criticized Sessions, stoking speculation he might be fired. Some of the information in the dossier is said to have come directly from the Kremlin.

"I'm not able to answer that", he repeated multiple times to Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan as he asked about the dossier.


It also comes a day after the Justice Department told the chair of the committee, Rep.

That's what it looks like, and I'm asking you: Doesn't that warrant - in addition to all the things we know about James Comey in 2016 - doesn't that warrant naming a second special counsel, as 20 members of this committee wrote you three and a half months ago asking you to do?

"Virtually every Clinton-related matter that President Trump complains about has been well-litigated, carefully examined and completely debunked", Conyers said.

Last week Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said there is "no question" that Sessions must appear before Congress again in an open session to "reconcile" his testimony. 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".
