Trump proposal aims at another way of getting people to work

Mr. Sessions' testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m., has the potential for high drama as the Russian Federation probe continues to dominate U.S. politics, sidelining President Trump's domestic agenda. While Comey did not run to tell Sessions of his concerns over what the President supposedly said about the investigation of Michael Flynn, Comey did say he asked Sessions to shield him from Mr. Trump, anxious by the President's phone calls and questions.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify at a public hearing of the Senate intelligence committee Tuesday afternoon, the committee said in a statement.

Questions have arisen about Sessions' own involvement in the Trump campaign and his meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the US.

"It depends on the scope of the questions", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said when asked whether Sessions would invoke executive privilege.

And family members of some of the 26 people who were killed in the Sandy Hook massacre are furious. You should be ashamed of yourselves for allowing this behavior".

The announcement caps the drama that started over the weekend when Sessions canceled two appearances Tuesday, citing former Comey's blistering testimony last week. He said at his January confirmation hearing that he had not met with Russians during the campaign. He said he didn't have an answer.

In addition, Comey has said Sessions did not respond when he complained that he did not want to be left alone with Trump again.

But intelligence committee members at first were unaware of a planned hearing.

The former Republican US senator from Alabama, one of Mr. Trump's most avid supporters on the campaign trail, will likely have to explain why he told lawmakers in January he had no dealings with Kremlin officials previous year.

The last woman to win her first tour-level title at a major was Barbara Jordan at the 1979 Australian Open. Halep added: "She only has one game, either I can't touch it or it flies one metre out".

"Executive privilege nearly certainly does not cover the Comey memo", wrote Vladeck, "and even if it did, disclosing it without authorization isn't illegal".

The Justice Department said Monday that Sessions requested Tuesday's committee hearing be open because he "believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him".

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director also testified that he and the agency had believed Sessions was "inevitably going to recuse" for reasons he said he could not elaborate on. "The Senate Intelligence Committee is the most appropriate forum for such matters, as it has been conducting an investigation and has access to relevant, classified information". Multiple sources confirmed that the president was disappointed with the attorney general's recusal - a decision Trump only learned about minutes before it was announced in March.

"We want to get back to running our great country", Trump said at a White House news conference on Friday after a week that saw Washington and much of the country fixated on the damaging testimony of his fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
