Dem Reads Trump Tweets During Sessions Hearing

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

Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said Tuesday that he has not been improperly influenced by President Trump to investigate Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.

"I pushed back, I'll just say it that way", Sessions said under questioning.

The question stemmed from news Monday night that Sessions had asked senior aides to determine if the department should probe an Obama administration decision that allowed Russian Federation to acquire a financial interest in USA uranium supplies.

Some Republicans have charged that the State Department under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton approved the deal after her husband's charitable foundation received a $145 million donation.

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

Democratic Representative Ted Lieu, who sits on the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, said on Twitter on Tuesday he believes Sessions committed perjury when he previously denied knowledge of contact between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation. "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".

Sessions already was under fire for inaccurate statements he made in previous testimony regarding contacts between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

The department said in a letter to the House Judiciary Committee Monday that Sessions had directed senior federal prosecutors to "evaluate certain issues" raised in recent weeks by members of Congress, which include allegations that the Clinton Foundation benefited from a years-old uranium transaction involving a Russian-backed company.

Mr Sessions said on Tuesday that he doesn't challenge Mr Page's recollection, but doesn't remember the conversation.

Sessions testified at the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, and testified that he had no knowledge of any contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

They now have three conference losses, so they'll be behind even whichever team loses the Frogs-Sooners game Saturday night. Iowa State fell to 6-4, and the loss left it behind Oklahoma, TCU, Oklahoma State and West Virginia in the Big 12 at 4-3.

The Washington Post and New York Times cited a letter from the Justice Department to the Republican chairman of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Robert Goodlatte, responding to his request for the appointment of a special counsel to look into various matters.

However, Stuart Green, a professor of criminal law at Rutgers University School of Law, said Sessions would have a plausible argument that Papadopoulos' communications were not the type of contacts Franken was asking about since they were with Russian government intermediaries rather than Russian officials.

Sessions said DOJ would investigate any potential issues related to Clinton.

Sessions previously testified at a similar hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in October.

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