Dem Reads Trump Tweets During Sessions Hearing

Justice Department Confirms Prosecutors Are "Evaluating" Claims Raised Against Hillary Clinton
But Sessions said the DOJ requires a high standard of evidence to appoint a special counsel, which means he may not grant that request.
Sessions noted that there have only ever been two special counsels: one for the Waco siege in April 1993, and Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
The hearing comes after a year where Sessions has been under repeated pressure from the President to launch investigations into Clinton and has been under fire from congressional Democrats about his answers on Russian Federation and push end the DACA program for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, among other issues.
Gershman said Sessions' statement that he did not recall Papadopoulos' remarks at the meeting would raise skepticism since Sessions led the meeting, Trump attended it and important national security matters were discussed. "And I have not been improperly influenced and would not be improperly influenced". "The president speaks his mind". "He's bold and direct about what he says. But we do our duty every day based on the laws and fact".
Conyers then asked Sessions, "In a functioning democracy, is it common for the leader of the country to order the criminal justice system to retaliate against his political opponents?"
"This department will not unlawfully target people", he said.
Sessions said he was aware of Trump's repeated suggestions that the Justice Department should investigate Clinton, but that his actions did not follow from the president's words. Mr Sessions said the Trump campaign "was a brilliant campaign in many ways".
The attorney general previously recused himself from matters related to the 2016 presidential campaign.
Sessions also said he had no challenge to Page's recollection of those events. In his testimony before Congress Tuesday, Sessions tried to account for this apparent discrepancy. "That is a lie". The president has publicly lambasted his attorney general and noted, had he known in advance of Sessions's recusal, he would not have appointed him to the post.
The following describes the crime of perjury and whether it would apply to Sessions' conduct.
"I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath".
"Nobody! Nobody - not you or anyone else, should be prosecuted, not me.for answering a question the way I did in this hearing". "You're accusing me of lying about it?"
