Sessions is appearing before Senate Intel Committee: What could happen?

Sessions, a former Republican senator from Alabama, will face tough questions from his former colleagues on a number of fronts that he has never had to publicly address in detail.

Mr. Comey last week recounted a February 14 incident in which Mr. Trump ordered Mr. Sessions and others out of the room, then allegedly proceeded to tell Mr. Comey that he wanted the FBI to drop an investigation into former national-security adviser Michael Flynn's discussions with Mr. Kislyak.

Sessions, according to media accounts, was closely involved in pushing Trump to fire Comey - and Sessions has also been implicated in the Russia scandal due to meetings he held during the campaign past year with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak - at a time when Russian intelligence operatives were actively involved in hacking and manipulating the us presidential election to tilt it in favor of Trump and to manage Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Diane Marie Amann, a law professor at University of Georgia, agreed with Spicer that invoking privilege was possible: "It depends on the questions that are asked", she said.

The president says he is 100 percent willing to give testimony under oath and meet with Bob Mueller to dispute the testimony given by Comey.

As these investigations remain ongoing, no substantive evidence exists that shows the Trump campaign worked with Moscow.

The problem then worsened when the officials didn't catch the public address announcer saying it was called on Green. Even Kerr himself thought the first tech was on Green, but Kerr did say he believed he should've been the recipient.

Mr. Sessions could refuse to answer some of the panel's questions on his conversations with Mr. Trump by citing executive privilege. "To get into a hypothetical at this point would be premature". In fact, his own survival as attorney general, which has recently been a subject of much debate, could hinge on his performance before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

That remark came after revelations that Sessions had met with Russia's ambassador to the US last year, despite testifying under oath during a confirmation hearing that he "did not have communications with the Russians".

- Third Sessions-Russia meeting?

Sessions, who has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation, told appropriators that Senate Intelligence was the more "appropriate forum" in the wake of Comey's testimomy. Sessions is expected to face sharp questioning from his former Senate colleagues about his role in the investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

"He didn't tell us the truth", Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy told MSNBC Monday.

"I urge that the Committee hold a hearing with the Attorney General in the open so that the American people can hear for themselves what he has to say with regard to connections to the Russians and the President's abuse of power", wrote Sen.

But without an opinion from the attorney general, he says they don't feel like they can tell women not to sunbathe topless. Ocean City officials, however, quickly waded into the sand and said that women should keep their tops on.

After that failure to disclose came to light, Sessions defended himself and sent supplemental testimony to the Senate.

Comey recalled that he felt "something big" was about to happen, and "my sense was the attorney general knew he shouldn't be leaving".

In his testimony, Comey said he had asked Sessions not to leave him alone with Trump following meetings where he said Trump had asked Comey for his loyalty. Feinstein said she was especially concerned after National Intelligence Director Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers refused to answer questions from the intelligence committee about possible undue influence by Trump.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Comey quoted Trump as saying. "I think he's weighing that option", Chris Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax, told the PBS News Hour, speaking of Trump.
