“Sessions tries to distance himself from Trump advisers’ Russia talks”


Attorney General Jeff Sessions tried Tuesday to distance himself from new accounts of contacts between Donald Trump’s aides and Russia-linked people last year, saying he had never lied about his own role but simply had little recollection of discussions on the topic.

Sessions told the House Judiciary Committee he hadn’t remembered one meeting with a Trump adviser trying to broker high-level talks with Russia until he saw media reports about it, and he said he still couldn’t recall a conversation about another adviser’s planned trip to Moscow.” MORE
