US attorney general Jeff Sessions testified today (June 13) at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that centered on his meetings with Russian officials as well as his involvement in president Donald Trump’s decision to abruptly fire James Comey on May 9.
Sessions had recused himself from the federal investigations into possible Russian interference in the election after reports that he had spoken twice last year with Russia’s ambassador to the US.
