AG Sessions says he 'always told the truth' in describing Russian Federation contacts

AG Sessions says he 'always told the truth' in describing Russian Federation contacts”

The department's response from Stephen E. Boyd, an assistant attorney general, expresses the importance of the department's "duty to carefully evaluate" ongoing matters "in a non-political manner", noting "the Department does not ordinarily confirm or deny investigations, and this letter should not be construed to do so".

The private charitable foundation of former President Bill Clinton had ties to some of the companies involved in the deal, and Republicans have called for an investigation. The deal, which has always been a talking point for right-leaning media outlets, allowed a Russian nuclear agency to purchase Uranium One, a Canadian mining firm with deep ties to America's uranium extraction capacity. That time, he said he conducted no "improper discussions with Russians at any time regarding a campaign or any other item facing this country", though he allowed it was possible in one of his conversations "some comment was made about what Trump's positions were".

The question stemmed from news Monday night that Sessions had asked senior aides to determine if the department should probe an Obama administration decision that allowed Russian Federation to acquire a financial interest in US uranium supplies.

Since that hearing, Mueller unsealed a guilty plea from a campaign foreign policy staffer, Papadopoulos, for false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Gershman said that Sessions' failure to disclose the Papadopoulos meeting could amount to perjury. Trump has repeatedly voiced frustration about the Mueller probe and publicly criticized Sessions, stoking speculation he might be fired. Sessions is at the hearing to answer questions about his leadership of the Department of Justice and his interactions with Russians while a top adviser in the Trump campaign.

Or, so Sessions tells the House Judiciary Committee.

Sessions said he had no recollection of the conversation with Page.

Sessions has given sworn testimony at least three times to Senate and House committees, and Democratic lawmakers have pointed to inconsistencies in his statements.

The dossier has been a focus of Republicans in Congress, who have been frustrated by the leak of the unverified allegations within it and have sought to link the research to Democrats.

"I'm not able to reveal internal investigatory matters", Sessions said.

Page Tells Russia Probe He's `Biggest Embarrassment' to Trump
Papadopoulos continued trying to arrange contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation , the court filings say. Page told the committee that he had not worked with the Russians to hack emails or otherwise influence the election.

Sessions said DOJ would investigate any potential issues related to Clinton.

When asked if he had contact with Russia in October, Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee he did not have any contact with Russian officials and didn't know of anyone else who did.

"Virtually every Clinton-related matter that President Trump complains about has been well-litigated, carefully examined and completely debunked", Conyers said.

Conyers, alluding to the fact that Sessions did not directly answer the question, responded by saying, "I interpret that as no". "Is it proper, is that what you're asking?"
