Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 12, 2017. He stated that he had never had any conversations with Russian officials about any type of interference in the 2016 presidential election. Sessions declined to discuss conversations he had with President Trump about the firing of former FBI director James Comey or his own recusal from the FBI investigation of possible Russian ties to the election. Sessions’ reluctance to answer questions created frustration on the part of Democratic senators.
