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. Sessionssaid 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 Trumpcampaign", 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".

It was also confirmed by the IOC that the Olympic Flag would be flown at half-mast at their headquarters as a mark of respect. Verbruggen was highly critical of what he described as a "biased, anti-Verbruggen report".
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.
The exchange raises questions about why Sessions, who showed little interest in Russian Federation while he was a senator, met withKislyak 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.
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 toldSessions 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.
