Franken, Sessions Spar Over Time Restrictions During Russia Hearing: 'No, No, No'

But he won't say what, specifically, Trump's concerns with Comey were - and in particular, whether Trump was intent on getting rid of Comey to dispel the "cloud" he felt the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election had cast over his presidency.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder, whose tenure was embroiled in controversy, had some strong words this week for the Trump administration's position on key issues involving the criminal justice system.

Sessions didn't say Trump would invoked privilege - which which deny congressional overseers from hearing what his top advisors had to say.

"Mr. Chairman, I don't have to sit in here and listen to his charges without having a chance to respond", Sessions said to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen.

TxDOT re-introducing 'Five for Drive' campaign to keep young drivers safe
In 2015, among teen drivers involved in fatal crashes, 10 percent were reported as distracted at the time of the crash. If you have teenagers, that anxiety can rise even more, especially when they start to drive.

Under intense questioning by the Senate judiciary committee, Sessions departed from his previous blanket denials about contacts with Russian officials, saying he did "not recall" elements of the conversations in three meetings in 2016 with the ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and conceded for the first time that substantive issues may have been discussed. The move, which resulted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller being appointed to lead the probe, infuriated President Trump.

Mr Sessions said he was further astounded when Mr Comey, weeks before he was sacked, insisted to a congressional committee that he would have taken the same actions again.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Sessions if he had been interviewed. The implication (as pointed out by former Obama DOJ aide Matthew Miller on Twitter) is that Mueller's investigators have asked Sessions for an interview, but he hasn't agreed to it yet. It'll be up to everyone to determine what they think is more credible: Sessions and Rosenstein's claims that a proper process was followed, or Trump's own stream-of-consciousness associations between Comey and the Russian Federation investigation.

"I am, personally, at this moment, not prepared to give you an accurate answer because I don't know that I remember or know it precisely", Sessions said, adding that he would follow up at a later time with an answer in writing. Specifically, what was your designated role in the decision to fire director Comey? While accusing Franken of being "totally unfair to me", Sessions admitted Wednesday it was "possible" that "some comment was made about what Trump's positions were" during his meeting with the ambassador. And so the balance needs to be properly struck - and I think we have. I don't think I've heard of a situation in which a major case in which the Department of Justice prosecutors were involved in an investigation, that the investigative agent announces the closure of the investigation.

Jefferson Davis school in MS to be renamed after Barack Obama
Education Week also found that almost 60 percent of students at schools named for Obama qualified for free or reduced lunch. A predominately black public school in MS that was named after Jefferson Davis now has a new moniker: Barack Obama Magnet.

The official said that as a general matter, the guidance "doesn't legalize discrimination at all". But particularly we confirmed that he reaffirmed he would do it again.

'I have considered this request very respectfully. Mr Comey was leading the investigation for the FBI at the time. There's no doubt about it. But said he didn't want to preclude that option.

"It's a 2,000 mile border, but you don't need 2,000 miles of wall because you have a lot of natural barriers", the president told reporters aboard Air Force One in July. We had an encounter there and he asked for an appointment in my office later.
