Attorney General Jeff Sessions is testifying Tuesday in a public hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee. In March, after the Washington Post reported on Sessions’ two previously undisclosed meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 presidential campaign, Sessions recused himself from all investigations into potential Russian interference in the election. Former FBI Director James Comey raised further questions about Sessions’ conduct in public and private testimony last week.
