Sessions will testify before Senate in Russia investigation

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Saturday that he will testify next week on matters connected to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

In a letter to his former colleagues in the House and Senate, Sessions canceled a planned appearance before Congress’ appropriations committees and said he instead intends to appear on Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee to address concerns raised by former FBI director James Comey in bombshell testimony last Thursday.

In his testimony, Comey said that he was aware of non-public information that he said helped lead to Sessions’ decision in February to recuse himself from the FBI’s Russia investigation.
