Leahy angry Sessions canceled on appropriations hearing

Montez Delgado | 14 Junio, 2017, 19:04

There were more sparks than substance at the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on Tuesday with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, nervous about falling into a perjury trap or exposing President Donald Trump to legal jeopardy as he denied any collusion with Russian Federation - to the best that he recalled. Sessions said those policies that prevented him answering questions, despite various senators saying there was no legality that should limit him from answering.

Sessions said he learned from Comey that he felt concerned about being left alone with the president but that, since Comey did not relay details of the conversation, he had no way of knowing it was improper.

Sessions added he had no knowledge of "any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign", and said he did not have third meeting with the Russian ambassador to the United States. "I have been called a surrogate a time or two in that campaign and I did not have any communications with the Russians".

Sessions became visibly angry when asked about former FBI Director James Comey's testimony last week that aspects of the attorney general's recusal were problematic.

She said the two parties have "had some very good discussions" and both sides want to bring "stability to the UK Government". Major said London's impartial role in Northern Ireland remained a fundamental part of the peace process.

Testifying at a Senate hearing, Sessions, who was a close Trump adviser during the battle for the presidency, said it was a "detestable and appalling lie" to suggest that he participated in or was aware of any collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Less than one week has passed since former FBI Director James Comey gave public testimony before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.

The exchange raises questions about why Sessions, who showed little interest in Russian Federation while he was a senator, met with Kislyak at all during the election.

Comey referred frequently to the attorney general and included the tantalizing tidbit that there were "facts that I can't discuss in an open setting". Days after that, Sessions also corrected his confirmation hearing testimony to inform the committee about his two meetings with Kislyak.

But the majority of the responses from Sessions went around in circles, and some on the committee grew clearly frustrated. Martin Heinrich, who took issue with Sessions declining to answer questions. You're not the witness we were supposed to hear from today. "You never thought it was appropriate to raise those concerns before he was actually terminated by the president?" Sen.

At the hearing, Attorney General Jeff Sessions heatedly denied that he had any undisclosed meeting with the Russian ambassador or conversations with Russian officials about the USA elections.

Sessions's comments came during his Senate testimony on whether he met privately with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at an April 2016 foreign policy event at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington.

Lawmakers, including Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate and to determine if Sessions committed perjury when he denied having had meetings with Russians. "If any brief interaction occurred in passing with the Russian ambassador during that reception, I do not remember it", he said. Sessions said he did not mislead Congress because the encounters were part of his job as a USA senator, not as a Trump campaign representative. If I don't qualify it, you'll accuse me of lying.

Comey also said he told Sessions that he did not want to be left alone with Trump, because he didn't think it was appropriate for the president and the Federal Bureau of Investigation director to have private meetings.
