Attorney General Jeff
Sessions opened his hearing with a fiery speech that blasted the lies and the deception that have been swirling around the Russian investigation.
Attorney General Sessions: Let me state this clearly, colleagues. I have never met with or had any conversation with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or election in the United States. Furthermore, I have any known knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign… The suggestion that I participated in any collusion, that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government, to hurt this country that I have served with honor for 35 years or to undermine the integrity of our Democratic process is an appalling and detestable lie.

Watching these political hacks try to get AG Jeff Sessions to make commitments to their continued witch hunt is rather amusing.

Well said AG Sessions: “I did not recuse myself from defending my honor from false & scurrilous accusations”

That Sessions opening statement is what is known as a home freaking run. #MAGA

Comey denied receiving notification of Sessions’ recusal. AG says he sent him an email. More suspicion on Comey, as Sessions has the email.
