Photo Shows Jeff Sessions With Russian Ambassador

He simultaneously said that President Trump hadn't invoked "executive privilege" - a term referring to protecting private conversations with the President - but still refused to answer any questions from senators regarding his conversations with him, including whether he and Trump had discussed the Russian Federation investigation when talking about firing former FBI Director Comey.

Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation. Last week, Mr. Comey told the same Senate panel he was sacked because the investigation was "irritating" Mr. Trump.

With pressure growing on the White House over Mr Comey's dismissal and the Russia probe, Mr Sessions also defended himself against Democratic allegations that he gave misleading testimony about his contacts with Russian officials during his confirmation hearing.
