PBS NEWSHOUR coverage of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee TODAY, June 13, beginning at 2:30 PM ET.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify Tuesday, June 13 at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that will likely focus on his meetings with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Sessions is scheduled to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Watch live from PBS NewsHour in the player above.
The hearing comes days after former FBI Director James Comey testified about the agency’s investigation of Russia’s role in last year’s presidential election and possible ties to President Donald Trump’s campaign, along with his relationship with Trump in the weeks before his firing.
Sessions may also be questioned Tuesday about his role in Comey’s firing.
On Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said he wasn’t sure whether Sessions would invoke executive privilege to limit the range of topics covered in the hearing. It “depends on the scope of the questions,” he told reporters.
Tuesday’s hearing will be Sessions’ first public testimony since March, when he recused himself from the Russia investigations after failing to disclose meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. During his January confirmation hearings, while under oath, he told senators he hadn’t had any contact with Russian officials.
