Attorney General, Jeff Sessions informed Congress this past weekend he intends to come before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Sessions is a loyal Trump crony, after Charles Schumer challenged Trump to testify, we can only expect Sessions is here to do Trump’s work.
Sessions informed Congress over the weekend that he will appear before the intelligence committee, rather than before previously scheduled hearings regarding funding for the Justice Department.
DOJ and Senate officials did not initially indicate over the weekend whether Sessions’ appearance would be public or private. The hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
The attorney general is facing increased scrutiny from lawmakers after former FBI Director James Comey testified last week that he knew details about Sessions before his recusal from the Russia probe that would make his involvement in the investigation “problematic.”
The DOJ said in a statement, “The Attorney General has requested that this hearing be public. He believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him and looks forward to answering the committee’s questions tomorrow.”
The committee has gone from scheduling hearings, to scheduling circus acts.
