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

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

Sessions testified at an open hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, and Conyers chose to base his first line of questioning on the following Trump tweets.

Sessions' relationship with the president has been significantly strained since he recused himself from the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to influence the 2016 election.

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. He said he mentioned in passing to Sessions that he was visiting Russian Federation and the then-senator had no reaction.

Sessions has faced repeated questions from senators about his role in the campaign and the investigation into Russian meddling in the USA election. "But we do our duty every day based on the laws and fact".

A photograph posted on Trump's Instagram account shows that Papadopoulos, Sessions and Trump were all seated at the same table in that meeting.

As the time Conyers was allotted to question Sessions drew to a close, he noted that at his confirmation hearing, Sessions promised to recuse himself from any investigations involving Hillary Clinton.

Jeff Sessions's memory works in mysterious ways. Charging documents in that case indicate that Papadopoulos told the council "that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump" and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

So it's pretty much safe to say that this might have been the peak "nice things" that she refers to in the song. For instance, Swift released her 1989 album on October 27, 2014, and the tour announcement came a week later.

"But I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath".

He struck a similar note before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, when he denied knowledge of communications between Russians and Trump campaign officials.

Sessions repeatedly declined to answer questions related to the infamous dossier about Donald Trump prepared by retired British agent Christopher Steele, saying he would have to refer questions to the investigation by Mueller.

Sessions has asked Justice Department prosecutors to decide if a special counsel should be appointed to investigate certain Republican concerns, including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation, according to media reports on Monday. Investigating political opponents, particularly vanquished ones, is a particularly slippery slope that clearly Trump, who will only have to live another decade or so in the half-cocked America he creates, surely has no problem hydroplaning down. Democrats have said they plan to ask Sessions about what they see as the discrepancies, some of which he has yet to address publicly.

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

Representative Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said five congressional committees, including the oversight panel, had investigated the deal and "identified no evidence to substantiate allegations that Secretary Clinton orchestrated, manipulated, or otherwise coerced" the interagency committee to approve the deal.
