Sessions denies being influenced by Trump to investigate Hillary Clinton

Sessions denies being influenced by Trump to investigate Hillary Clinton

"Each of those are pretty special factual situations, and we will use the proper standards, and that's the only thing I can tell you, Mr. Jordan" Sessions said.

Sessions noted that there have only ever been two special counsels: one for the Waco siege in April 1993, and Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

In addition to the meeting with Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page testified before the House Intelligence Committee recently that he told Sessions of his plans to travel to Moscow.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday denied that he misled legislators when he previously failed to disclose a meeting he attended with then-candidate Donald Trump and aides where campaign connections to Russian Federation were discussed.

Mr Page's trip has drawn scrutiny in inquiries into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

"As for Mr. Page, while I do not challenge his recollection, I have no memory of his presence at a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club or any passing conversation he may have had with me as he left", Sessions said. It was a brilliant campaign in many ways.

"We travelled all the time, sometimes to several places in one day".

Last week Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said there is "no question" that Sessions must appear before Congress again in an open session to "reconcile" his testimony. "After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter".

In recent weeks, unsealed court documents have called into question the attorney general's previous testimony about his interactions with Russians, and his knowledge of others' interactions, when he was an official with the Trump campaign.

"My answers have not changed", Sessions said.

While the Justice Department is part of the executive branch - and the attorney general is appointed by and answers to the president - the White House generally provides input on broad policy goals and does not weigh in on criminal probes. After his confirmation hearing, it came to light that Sessions had met with Russian officials during the campaign, prompting his recusal from the investigation and leading to the special counsel's appointment.

Sessions recused himself from investigations related to Russian interference in the elections shortly after taking office as attorney general.

Sessions grew angry in response, repeating that he had never lied under oath. President Trump's oldest son released the messages after The Atlantic reported them Monday.

Sessions previously testified at a similar hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in October.
