Attorney General Jeff Sessions Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee

Nov 14, 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified on Capitol Hill on Tuesday for the fourth time this year. Watch video below from the proceedings.

Sessions was set to testify during a House Judiciary Committee hearing about his oversight of the Justice Department.

He was likely to face questions about Trump campaign contacts with Russia.

NPR's Carrie Johnson reports that Sessions has multiple audiences for his testimony today. From the report:

They include his former colleagues on Capitol Hill, where he served as a Republican senator from Alabama; the 100,000-odd lawyers, investigators and staff members who work for the U.S. Justice Department; and perhaps, most importantly, his boss, President Trump.

Six lawyers who have spent years in and outside the Justice Department described morale in the institution as poor, after a series of critical comments and tweets from Trump this year, and the attorney general's public silence in the face of them.
