AG Sessions Defends His Role, Dodges Trump/Russia Questions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, days after former FBI director James Comey’s damaging testimony about his firing and Trump’s relation to the ongoing Russia investigations. Sessions gave an impassioned defense of his conduct in the controversies. But he also dodged questions about his conversations with President Trump, leading to heated exchanges with democratic senators who blasted him as impeding the congressional investigation.
