Jeff Sessions testifies before House lawmakers — live …

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is facing lawmakers on Capitol Hill in a new round of questioning which is sure to revolve around his knowledge of Russian contacts made by the Trump campaign in the lead up and fallout of the 2016 presidential election.

Billed as a House Judiciary Committee hearing on oversight of the Justice Department, Sessions is expected to answer new questions about his knowledge of communications between Trump associates and the Russian government during the campaign, in light of recent grand jury indictments against two Trump campaign aides.

His testimony also comes just hours after he suggested a second special counsel was needed in order to look into Clinton Foundation dealings and an Obama-era uranium deal, responding to concerns from Republican lawmakers.

Sessions also faces House lawmakers one day after a new accuser of Alabama Republican senate candidate Roy Moore has stepped forward with new sexual assault allegations. Moore is looking to fill the vacant seat left by Sessions in the Senate, but has lost the support of numerous lawmakers in light of several allegations of sexual misconduct.
