Jeff Session is speaking for the first time since his Press Conferance over his relationship with the Russian Ambassador and he is defending the response he gave to the Senate during his nomination hearing.
The Hill reported: Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday defended his decision not to mention his talks with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. while under oathj during his confirmation hearing, a decision that eventually led to his recusal from his department’s probe into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.
“My answer was correct,” Sessions wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he used to further explain his testimony.
The former Alabama senator said he was answering a specific question posed by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during his January confirmation hearing about ongoing talks between Trump associates and Russian government representatives during the campaign.
“I did not mention communications I had had with the Russian ambassador over the years because the question did not ask about them,” Sessions wrote.
