Senator says Trump should turn over Comey tapes

Sessions on Saturday said he would appear before the intelligence committee, which has been doing its own investigation into Russian contacts with the Trump campaign. You can tell how little Donald Trump's lawyer trusts his client because when asked point-blank whether America could count on Trump, at the very least, not firing the special counsel investigating Russian election hacking and its potential ties to members of the Trump campaign Donald Trump's lawyer could not promise that wouldn't happen.

Questioned by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Former FBI Director James Comey dropped a hint about some kind of information with regards to Attorney General Sessions and the Russian Federation investigation, which Comey was convinced would lead to Sessions recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe.

Sessions stepped aside in March from the federal investigation into contacts between Russia and the campaign after acknowledging that he had met twice past year with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. The former senator from Alabama told lawmakers at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chair and ranking Democrat, jointly announced that Sessions would testify Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. ET "in open session".

Comey also has said Sessions did not respond when he complained he didn't "want to get time alone with the president again". He said he didn't have an answer. His reckless, untruthful and undisciplined actions have now earned him a Special Prosecuter and a likely obstruction of justice investigation on top of the ongoing investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. The committee shortly after said the hearing would be open.

Where it goes from there we don't know yet. "The Senate Intelligence Committee is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information".

When Stephanopoulos asked if Trump would fire special counsel Robert Mueller, Sekulow said he wouldn't speculate on what the president will do.

She said Sessions should also testify before the Judiciary Committee, because it was better suited to explore legal questions of possible obstruction.

The White House on Monday suggested Sessions could invoke executive privilege during his testimony depending on "the scope of the questions".

Spicer, the spokesman, declined to say then that Sessions enjoyed Trump's confidence, though spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later in the week that the president had confidence "in all of his Cabinet". Sessions, a former senator, later issued a clarification saying he had met with the ambassador.

Lawmakers, including Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate and to determine if Sessions committed perjury when he denied having had meetings with Russians.
