The appearance before the House Judiciary Committee follows a guilty plea from one Trump campaign aide who served on a foreign policy council that Sessions chaired, as well as statements from another adviser who said he'd advised the then-GOP Alabama senator about an upcoming trip to Russian Federation. "We are providing you notice in advance because we expect you to respond".
Sessions also testified that he now remembers a meeting with Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, whose work is now a focus of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling, but denied having a clear memory of the full conversation.
To that end, the New York Times reported on Monday night, "People close to the White House believe Mr. Sessions can stop the president from firing him by appointing a special counsel to investigate the uranium deal".
Sessions has faced repeated questions from senators about his role in the campaign and the investigation into Russian meddling in the United States election.
Taylor Swift returns with Reputation tour, Denver show
The singer dropped her new record, "Reputation," on Friday to much fanfare, and early sales numbers have begun to trickle in. All stops on the 27-city tour were released this morning, and all tickets go on sale December 13.
During the March 2016 campaign meeting where Russia was discussed, Sessions shut down Papadopoulos' idea of engaging with Russian contacts, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Sessions previously said he had "no recollection" of the meeting that he chaired that included Papadopoulos until a picture of it surfaced after the staffer's guilty plea for false statements.
In recent weeks, unsealed court documents have called into question the attorney general's previous testimony about his interactions with Russians, and his knowledge of others' interactions, when he was an official with the Trump campaign. He said he mentioned in passing to Sessions that he was visiting Russian Federation and the then-senator had no reaction.
Under pressure, Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation, a decision that later helped pave the way for the appointment of former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation.
Get over contentious penalty, Xhaka tells Northern Ireland
It meant Switzerland's disputed penalty for handball in the first-leg victory in Belfast made all the difference. For a thrilling half-second the ball was going in and the game was going to extra-time.
Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee is planning a Tuesday interview with a Russian-American lobbyist who attended a campaign meeting a year ago with Trump's son, according to a person familiar with the interview.
Later, Sessions said more firmly, "At the meeting, I pushed back". That letter informed members that federal prosecutors are looking into whether a special counsel should be appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton.
"The Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents".
Those prosecutors would then 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 the appointment of a Special Counsel", the letter said. That deal involved selling part of a Canadian-based mining company to Rosatom, resulting in the company acquiring control over 20 percent of America's uranium supply.
Every Way Taylor Swift Claps Back at Kanye West on 'Reputation'
Yet, even with its controversy-winking title, Reputation is probably the least-gossipy release of Swift's career. And on that note, it looks like Swift might be letting her new lyrics do the talking, especially on this track.
