On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions got blew up at a Democratic Congresswoman during his Congressional testimony. Sessions vehemently defended his previous statements before the Intelligence Committee and fiercely re-affirmed that he had “never met with or had any conversation with any Russians.”
The attorney general was speaking with the House Judiciary Committee when he was pushed too far by Representative Sheila Jackson on his previous comments regarding the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia. She bluntly asked Sessions if he wished to “revise” his statement following recent revelations that a staff volunteer had once inquired about a possible meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Yes or no, does he wish to change his testimony in the Intelligence Committee?” demanded Representative Jackson.
“I would just say this: I stand by this testimony at the Intelligence Committee,” Sessions shot back. “I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with the campaign or election in the United States. Further, I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign.”
