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

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Still campaigning: Hillary Clinton looks into the audience during a speech in Florida last Thursday.

Boyd did acknowledge that the senior prosecutors would determine if any matters under investigation would merit the appointment of a special counsel.

Gershman said that Sessions' failure to disclose the Papadopoulos meeting could amount to perjury.

Gershman said Sessions' statement that he did not recall Papadopoulos' remarks at the meeting would raise skepticism since Sessions led the meeting, Trump attended it and important national security matters were discussed.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will face a barrage of questions from Democrats in the House of Representatives on Tuesday over whether he lied about communications between President Donald Trump's election campaign and Russian representatives.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment for this article, as did a lawyer for Comey. "Professionalism, integrity, and public confidence in the Department's work is critical for us, and no priority is higher".

"I'm really not involved with the Justice Department, I'd like to let it run itself", Trump said.

Markets stay flat even as Sensex, Nifty face more losses
On Wall Street, the S&P 500 lost 0.38 per cent while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.58 per cent. However, Wednesday, FIIs turned net sellers and sold scrips worth Rs 3,838.27 crore.

Jordan has led the charge of GOP lawmakers calling for a special counsel investigation to be launched in addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. During the summer, Sessions' job seemed in doubt, as Trump excoriated his attorney general repeatedly, calling him "weak".

"Everybody is asking why the Justice Department (and FBI) isn't looking into all of the dishonesty going on with Crooked Hillary & the Dems".

Trump and his supporters have accused Clinton of overseeing the sale of 20 percent of America's uranium supply to Russian Federation.

In the Justice Department's response, Boyd did not indicate which of the topics might draw greater interest than others, though he said the review by senior federal prosecutors would "better enable the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General to more effectively evaluate and manage the caseload". He said he mentioned in passing to Sessions that he was preparing to visit Russian Federation and Sessions "had no reaction whatsoever". The members who signed on requested the "appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate various matters, including the sale of Uranium One, alleged unlawful dealing related to the Clinton Foundation and other matters", the New York Times reports.

House Republicans in recent weeks have launched their own probes into the Obama administration and Clinton's emails.

Democratic lawmakers already contend the attorney general has not been forthcoming with them and have signaled that questions about the new revelations are likely to dominate what could otherwise have been a routine oversight hearing.

The comment by Sessions to a House of Representatives panel did not reveal any new link between the Trump team and Russian Federation but it was another example of the top USA law enforcement official offering a different version of events as lawmakers try to work out if the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 election.
