‘My Story Has Never Changed’ Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tells House Committee
Attorney General Jeff Sessions told the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday that his “story has never changed” about his and other Trump campaign officials’ connections to Russia.
“I will not accept, and reject accusations that I have ever lied,” Sessions said. “That is a lie!”
Sessions told a Democratic lawmaker he stands by earlier testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia. But, at the same time, the embattled attorney general said that he now recalls telling a foreign policy aide to the campaign that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government or any other foreign government.
In a line of questioning with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, the ongoing controversy in Alabama involving GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore also came up.
Sessions told the committee that he has “no reason to doubt these women” who have accused Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for Sessions’ Senate seat in a December special election, of seeking romantic relationships and sexual contact with them as teenagers, when he was in his 30s.
