"The suggestion that I participated in any collusion" that would hurt the United States, which "I have served for 35 years ... is an appalling and detestable lie", Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee in his opening statement. He also had prior conversations with Comey, who testified last week that, following a February 14 meeting with Trump, he told Sessions that he never again wanted to be left alone with the president.

Stewart, who saw portions of the hearing and read most of the transcript that was available Tuesday evening, said he considered Sessions' responses appropriate in not discussing his conversations with Trump.

SHAPIRO: This seems similar to a situation that we saw last week when two top Trump administration intelligence officials, NSA Director Mike Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, refused to answer questions from a Senate committee but would not specify what legal grounds they were basing that refusal on.

What's not clear is if Trump will be forced to invoke executive privilege to stop Sessions from testifying again, or from handing over the documents senators requested Tuesday.

The high-stakes testimony also takes place amid reported friction between Sessions and Trump, who criticized the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has angrily denied that there were problems related to his decision to recuse himself from the FBI's investigation into Russian activities during the election.

Similarly, he did not answer whether Trump had expressed concern to Sessions about the attorney general's March decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

For the second time in five days, the Senate Intelligence Committee heard testimony from one of the nation's top law enforcement officials about potential Russian influence in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Sessions bristled at Wyden, telling the OR senator that people are suggesting through innuendo that he has not been honest. "There are none, Senator Wyden, there are none". He did allow for the possibility the men could have had a brief interaction "in passing" at a well-attended reception at the Mayflower Hotel before an April 2016 foreign policy speech by then-candidate Trump.

Comey, during his testimony to the Senate, hinted there might be more to Sessions' recusal. But his former Democratic colleagues pressed him repeatedly on his contacts with Russian Federation and his role in the dismissal of Comey - who led the FBI's probe on Russian Federation until he was ousted.

De los legisladores conservadores depende el futuro político de Theresa May
Sólo falta conocer un resultado para saber si es para los Conservadores o para el Laborista . May "perdió escaños conservadores, perdió votos, perdió respaldo y perdió confianza".

But Sessions said that despite his sense of problems at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he never raised that with Comey. A move the White House hasn't ruled out.

But Ari, I think the important point and what the attorney general is surely banking on is that all of those maneuvers require the acquiescence of the Republican majority on the intelligence committee. "I am following the historic policies of the Department of Justice" on private discussions with the White House. While Democrats complained about a lack of answers, Republicans countered that the Sessions hearing showed a lack of evidence that tied the Trump Campaign to anything nefarious involving Russian Federation. One of her questions, she tweeted, would be, "Did Sessions violate the terms of his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation by being involved in the firing of James Comey?".

Sessions told the senators he has confidence in Mueller but said he had "no idea" if Trump did because he had not spoken to the president about the matter.

In part that's because Sessions answered numerous questions he was asked with a variation of "I don't recall" or "I don't think so".

Shortly after the meeting, Comey said he confronted Sessions, saying that had become increasingly uneasy about being left alone with Trump.
