Jeff Sessions Senate Intel Committee Testimony Will Be Public: Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee will be made in an open hearing.
The announcement came last week that Sessions would follow up ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the same committee with his own appearance, but it was speculated that appearance would be in a closed session. The Intelligence Committee’s chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), announced Monday that the attorney general’s testimony will be before the public as Comey’s was last Thursday.
The subject of the hearing, which will take place Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time in the Hart Senate Office Building, will be the ongoing probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential campaign and the now-spiraling controversy about Comey’s firing from the FBI and subsequently leaks to the press of potentially privileged memos about his conversations with President Donald Trump.
