The prosecutors will examine reports of misconduct at the Clinton Foundation and the Obama administration's 2010 decision to allow a Russian nuclear energy agency to acquire much of the United States' uranium, among other matters, according to a letter sent to the House Judiciary Committee from a senior Justice Department official on Monday.
Sessions testified at an open hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, and Conyers chose to base his first line of questioning on the following Trump tweets. "I'm really not involved with the Justice Department", Trump told reporters earlier this month. It was after Sessions's recusal that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller 3rd to lead the investigation into the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
"I have not been improperly influenced and would not be improperly influenced", Mr. Sessions said.
During that hearing, Democratic Senator Al Franken asked Sessions whether "surrogates from the Trump campaign had communications with the Russians".
"We travelled all the time, sometimes to several places in one day".
Morocco Has the Best Defense in the World
Tunisia will participate in their fifth World Cup, but first since qualifying four three consecutive tournaments from 1998-2006. Tunisia claimed the other spot despite being held to a goalless draw at home by Libya in Group A of the African qualifiers.
Under questioning by Rep. John Conyers, a Michigan Democrat, Sessions said "that would be wrong". He has "no clear recollection" of the March 2016 meeting where George Papadopoulos offered to set up a meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin - but the attorney general does remember shooting down the campaign aide's unseemly suggestion.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions threw some cold water on the idea of appointing a special counsel to investigate various matters related to Hillary Clinton and Democrats, as some Republicans have called for.
"That's what it looks like", he added, prompting Sessions reply.
"I believe that I wanted to make clear that he wasn't authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter", he testified.
Well, it's in the manual of the Department of Justice about what's required.
China sales: Alibaba takes £2bn in minutes on Singles' Day
Singles' Day, then, appears to be celebrating a marriage after all-one of cyberspace and reality. Alibaba turned 100,000 physical shops around China into "smart stores" for this year's event.
"I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath".
Sessions previously said he had "no recollection" of the meeting that he chaired that included Papadopoulos until a picture of it surfaced after the staffer's guilty plea for false statements.
"In all of my testimony, I can only do my best to answer all of your questions as I understand them and to the best of my memory".
"You can't x-ray people's minds to see what they were thinking and what they knew, so perjury can be a hard crime to prove", said Bennett Gershman, a professor of criminal law at Pace Law School.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is also expected to demand that Donald Trump Jr. appear before them to explain a series of private Twitter messages between him and WikiLeaks during and after the 2016 election.
