“Attorney General Jeff Sessions faced a grilling in Congress on Tuesday over his repeated failure to remember key facts about communications between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential race.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) presented Sessions with dozens of instances in which Sessions answered “I do not recall” when asked by members of Congress about contacts between the campaign and Russia. Jeffries also suggested that Sessions’ faulty memory betrayed hypocrisy, since Sessions had suggested last year that Hillary Clinton was guilty of perjury when she couldn’t remember things during the FBI probe into her emails. He also pointed to Sessions’ past arguments in favor of removing President Bill Clinton from office for inaccurately recounting events in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“The attorney general should not be held to a different standard on perjury,” Jeffries said.
At one point, when Sessions tried to ask him if he believed an encounter with Trump aide Carter Page was improper, Jeffries forcefully reminded Sessions that he was no longer a senator and should be answering, not asking, questions.
“You understand sir, that I get to ask the questions, you provide the answers in this capacity,” Jeffries said. “You’re no longer in the United States Senate.”
