Jeff Sessions: Not politically 'influenced' to review Clinton, Obama Russian uranium deal

Jeff Sessions: Not politically 'influenced' to review Clinton, Obama Russian uranium deal

The letters referenced - written by Goodlatte - were dated July 27 and September 26, and included requests by him and other committee members that a special counsel be appointed to investigate certain matters, some of which involved Clinton, according to Fox News.

Sessions said that was the version of events he recalled.

Sessions has previously told Congress he was unaware of any Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, leading Democrats on Tuesday to accuse him of lying under oath.

Sessions asked with a slight smirk. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said in a TV interview that she thought the Democratic primaries were imbalanced in Clinton's favor, the president tweeted: "Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries!"

The attorney general previously recused himself from matters related to the 2016 presidential campaign.

It also comes a day after the Justice Department told the chair of the committee, Rep.

However, court documents related to Papadopoulos' guilty plea showed that the former adviser offered to set up a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin during a campaign meeting in 2016, which Sessions attended. I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

"After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorised to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter", Sessions said on Tuesday. But he said he had no memory of that conversation. "I would say that's not fair, Mr. Jeffries".

More broadly, though, the renewed scrutiny of Clinton and the foundation reflects a political score Trump has a stated interest in settling, at a time that he would like far less interest in his own campaign's contacts with Russian Federation. Trump has repeatedly voiced frustration about the Mueller probe and publicly criticized Sessions, stoking speculation he might be fired.

All are Republicans who have apparently copped to smoking pot.

"To announce recusal in any investigation would reveal the existence of that investigation, and the top ethics officials have advised me I should not do so", he said.

From Republicans, Sessions is likely to face inquiries on a host of matters they want investigated - including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation.

The letter follows comments made by President Donald Trump on November 3 when he expressed disappointment in the Justice Department.

That's what it looks like, and I'm asking you: Doesn't that warrant - in addition to all the things we know about James Comey in 2016 - doesn't that warrant naming a second special counsel, as 20 members of this committee wrote you three and a half months ago asking you to do? He added he hoped Sessions "can assure us that the Department is weathering near-daily attacks on its independent by President Trump - and that no office of the Department is being used to pressure the President's political enemies".
