U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify before the Senate intelligence committee on June 13 about fired FBI director James Comey‘s testimony from last week.
Sessions was supposed to speak before the Senate and House appropriations subcommittees next week, but prioritized the Intelligence Committee in light of Comey’s testimony.
Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein will testify before the appropriations panels in Sessions’ place.
“In light of reports regarding Mr. Comey’s recent testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, it is important that I have an opportunity to address these matters in the appropriate forum,” Sessions wrote in a letter.

Sessions is expected to discuss his role in Comey’s May 9 firing, as well as other exchanges he had with the disgraced FBI director, who admitted that he leaked details about closed-door meetings he had with President Trump.
In March, Sessions recused himself from the Justice Department’s investigations into Russia’s alleged collusion with the Trump campaign. A bipartisan consensus on Capitol Hill concedes there is NO EVIDENCE of collusion, but the probes continue by anti-Trump factions determined to undermine the president.
The mainstream media has aggressively tried to paint Jeff Sessions as a Russian spy, citing public meetings he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2016, when he was a U.S. Senator. But ALL senators regularly meet with foreign ambassadors and leaders as part of their job. Just ask Nancy Pelosi, who lied when she claimed she had never met Sergey Kislyak—until photos proved otherwise.
Similarly, Senator Chuck Schumer shared laughs with Russian president Vladimir Putin over coffee and doughnuts—something President Trump has yet to do. But liberals and the mainstream media blithely ignore these facts.
For those confused about why the media continues to aggressively push the “Trump-Russia” hoax, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson had a simple explanation: They’re trying to destroy Trump.
Carlson said Hillary Clinton based her entire campaign on peddling the “Trump is racist” narrative. When that turned out to be false, the media then came up with the “Trump is a Russian spy” hoax.
“A Russian agent posing as a 70-year-old New York real-estate developer,” Carlson laughed. “It sounded kind of far-fetched, but for some reason it kinda worked. Half the country seemed to buy it, and 100% of CNN viewers were all in.”
Now that the Trump-Russia narrative is falling apart, the leftist media has set its sights on Jeff Sessions, whom they’re collectively targeting to undermine Trump.
“This is not about truth or fairness, much less protecting this country from foreign threats,” Carlson said. “It’s about toppling a democratically-elected government that the permanent class in Washington doesn’t like.”
