Attorney General Jeff Sessions Testifies Before House Lawmakers
15 November, 2017, 01:54 | Author: Irene Delgado
Mr Sessions said he does not remember speaking to Carter Page during the 2016 presidential campaign about a trip that the former foreign policy campaign adviser took to Russian Federation.
Sessions said that in all of his testimony, he could only do his "best" to answer all of the questions as he "understands them" and to the best of his memory.
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.
Republicans, for their part, may press Sessions on the Justice Department's handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices as well as an Obama-era uranium deal that has invited GOP scrutiny.
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.
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee pressed Mr. Sessions to explain whether he was pressured to restart investigations targeting President Trump's former democratic rival.

"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.
After the meeting, Sessions said, he did not have "any further knowledge" of additional contacts between the campaign and Russian officials. But, as NPR's Carrie Johnson notes, the Republican-led committee will also likely touch on the Department of Justice's evaluation of whether to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation.
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.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed federal prosecutors to "evaluate certain issues" involving Hillary Clinton's alleged corruption in a deal which gave Russian company Rosatom control over 20 percent of America's uranium supply.
Mr. Sessions declined to say whether he was recused. In his testimony before Congress Tuesday, Sessions tried to account for this apparent discrepancy. The New York Timesreports some White House officials see appointing a second special counsel investigating the 2010 Uranium One deal as the only way Sessions can save his job as attorney general.
In another Senate hearing last month, Sessions testified he had no improper involvement with Russians and was not aware of anyone else from the campaign who did. However, the Justice Department does not typically confirm or deny specific investigations, and Boyd stressed that the letter "should not be construed to do so". "It sure looks like the FBI was paying the author of that document and it sure looks like a major political party was working with the federal government" to damage Trump, Jordan said.
