Sessions defends himself to Congress, says he never lied

Posted November 15, 2017

But he does not recall the details of what Mr Papadopoulos said, Mr Sessions testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

Sessions has previously told Congress he was unaware of any Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, leading Democrats on Tuesday to accuse him of lying under oath.

However, Sessions said he would not acknowledge if he will recuse himself from any probe regarding Clinton, despite earlier pledges to do just that given his high-profile role in the Trump campaign.

Sessions has previously faced repeated questions from senators about his role in the campaign and the investigation into Russian meddling in the USA election.

Sessions also said on Tuesday he did not challenge a statement by another campaign foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, that he told Sessions in a brief encounter that he was about to leave for Moscow. Sessions would not say whether the dossier was used by the FBI to obtain warrants to surveil Trump associates, nor would he comment on any hypothetical investigation into Justice Department leaks to the media about the dossier.

But we know one fact.

Conyers, alluding to the fact that Sessions did not directly answer the question, responded by saying, "I interpret that as no".

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.

On Tuesday, Sessions said that any such review would be done without regard to political considerations. His letter, signed by 19 other Republicans, said that Judiciary Committee members were concerned that Mueller might not have a broad enough mandate to investigate other election-related matters, which he said included actions taken by Comey, Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

"I believe that I wanted to make clear that he wasn't authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter", he testified.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions threw some cold water on the idea of appointing a special counsel to investigate various matters related to Hillary Clinton and Democrats, as some Republicans have called for.

"But I will not accept, and reject, accusations that I have ever lied under oath". Months later, the Washington Post revealed that Sessions had met with the Russian ambassador to the United States multiple times during the 2016 campaign. "I have always tried to answer the questions fairly and accurately".

And at his latest appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions seemed to shift his position again.

"But, honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats", Mr. Trump said.
