This ought to be interesting.
For the first time since the initial wave of indictments was handed down in the Russia probe by special counsel Robert Mueller, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify publicly before a Congressional committee. It is the House Judiciary Committee which, on Tuesday, will have the opportunity to question Sessions under oath.
The Attorney General’s appearance comes amid reports that he is weighing a second special counsel to investigate the Clinton Foundation, and look into the Uranium One transaction — long an object of Republican skepticism.
Appearing on Good Morning America Tuesday, Mediaite founder Dan Abrams said that Sessions would be breaking his promise to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, should he greenlight a special counsel probe centered on Hillary Clinton. The question seems likely to come up on Tuesday morning.
The House Judiciary Committee is chaired by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). The ranking Democrat is Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). Other notable Republicans on the committee include Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and Jim Jordan (R-OH). Notable Democrats on the Committee include Shiela Jackson Lee (D-TX), Ted Lieu (D-CA), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA). The questioning should be heated.
The hearing begins at 10:00 a.m. ET. Watch above, via ABC News.
