Fresh questions for Sessions _ and he'll answer in public

And now there is buildup to the testimony of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday afternoon. The newspaper noted that it doesn't exclude the possibility of recordings created by another entity.

As part of his role on the foreign affairs committee, Kinzinger said he meets with a lot of ambassadors and doesn't always remember whom he met.

Asked when the announcement would come, Spicer replied, "When the president is ready to make it".

Sessions will be testifying before Congress for the first time since he was confirmed as attorney general in February.

The Secret Service handled recording systems within the White House for past presidents, including presidents Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. Trump said to reporters on Friday: "I'm not hinting anything".

In March, Sessions recused himself from any investigations that look at Russia's actions in the 2016 campaign.

The agency said a review of its main indices found no records related to the request.

That remark came after revelations emerged that Sessions had met with Russia's ambassador to the USA last year, despite testifying under oath during a confirmation hearing that he "did not have communications with the Russians".

Sessions was originally scheduled to testify Tuesday about the Justice Department budget before the Senate and House appropriations subcommittees.

'Goonda' remark: No statements should be made against Army, says Rahul Gandhi
Gandhi further said that the Indian Army serves the nation and, therefore, no political statements should be made against them. On Sunday, Dikshit said the army chief shouldn't make statements like a " sadak ka gunda " referring to his recent statements.

First, Democrats will grill him on Comey's revelations - for instance, his claim that Sessions appeared to recognize the inappropriateness of Trump's request to meet the Federal Bureau of Investigation director alone on February 14.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be at the center of two controversies in the Trump administration: whether Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to help Trump win and whether the president obstructed justice. National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers and Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, both declined to discuss their own Trump communications during a hearing last week.

The Justice Department says Sessions has requested Tuesday's committee hearing be open because he "believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him".

Those calls have escalated since fired FBI Director Comey cryptically told lawmakers last week that the bureau had expected Sessions to recuse himself weeks before he did from the investigation into contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

In a letter to the committee, he agreed to answer questions about his contacts with the Russians as well as his take on if the president tried to end the Russia probe.

"I know him to be an honorable man, and I think this is just a chance for him to put all that to rest", Cornyn said. While Comey did not run to tell Sessions of his concerns over what the President supposedly said about the investigation of Michael Flynn, Comey did say he asked Sessions to shield him from Mr. Trump, anxious by the President's phone calls and questions. Reed was on "Fox News Sunday".

"He needs to be fired".

The White House has already acknowledged that Sessions will not hesitate to invoke executive privilege, which may limit knowledge-sharing quite a bit.
