40 questions for Jeff Sessions: Will Senators ask any/all of these? Which will be answered?

❝ US Attorney General…Jeff Sessions will testify in open session Tuesday afternoon before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

It will be his first public appearance on the Hill since Jan. 10, when he falsely said at his confirmation hearing: “I did not have communications with the Russians.”

❝ Here are a few of the subjects the nation’s chief law enforcement officer is likely to be pressed on during his testimony, which will take place in the same hearing room where Comey appeared last week:

Does Sessions believe Trump’s version of events over Comey’s? Does he take contemporaneous notes about his conversations with the president?

Sessions was involved in selecting Christopher Wray as FBI director. Did Sessions discuss either Comey’s termination or the Russia investigation during his job interview?

Does Sessions know if the tapes exist? If the tapes exist, does he believe the president is obligated to release them?

It goes on and on with sensible, questions requiring firsthand knowledge to answer – or fear to answer. I’m looking forward to seeing how many of these questions get asked by our leading Senators?

RTFA for the whole assembly of questions.

    2:24 PM ET, Wed October 18, 2017: Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday faced tough questions from his former colleagues on the Senate judiciary committee — forcing him to once again repeatedly deny any improper contacts with the Russian government during the presidential campaign. http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/18/politics/jeff-sessions-senate-testimony/index.html Sessions also refused to discuss his “confidential conversations with the President,” rejecting Democrats’ questions about his interactions with President Donald Trump despite their pre-hearing warnings they expected him to answer, saying they were misunderstanding executive privilege.

  3. Update says:

    “Top Democrats plan to give Jeff Sessions a pass over new questions about his sworn testimony before Congress, fearing that publicly attacking the attorney general could give President Donald Trump a new reason to fire him and install a loyalist to oversee the Russia investigation.” https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/10/politics/jeff-sessions-george-papadopoulos-democrats/index.html “Sessions told the House Judiciary Committee last year that “I pushed back” in 2016 when former Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos proposed setting up a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. But Papadopoulos’ attorney, in a court filing this month, said that Sessions “stated that the campaign should look into” a Putin-Trump meeting — something that Papadopoulos himself reiterated in media interviews over the last few days.”
