Bob Mueller Hasn't Even Interviewed Sessions, Dem Senators Fall over Themselves

Sessions Is Likely to Face Questions That He Has Refused to Answer

"That's why I want our officers focused on community policing and not trying to be immigration police", he continued.

Sessions said he had not been interviewed by Mueller but he was tentative and hesitant in his answers on his contacts with Mueller's team, leaving open the possibility that he had been asked for an interview. But Sessions said the errors of Comey's handling of the Clinton email case can't be overstated. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., about whether he met with Mueller in relation to the Russia probe, the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, or his own interactions with Russian officials, saying, "Well, I'd be pleased to answer that - I'm not sure I should without clearing that with the special counsel".

Dick Durbin of IL brought up Sessions' Oct. 6 guidance memo, saying, "Under the guidance you released to all executive departments on religious liberty, let me ask you this question: Could a Social Security Administration employee refuse to accept or process spousal or survivor benefits paperwork for a surviving same-sex spouse?" In the background, special counsel Robert Mueller - appointed by Mr Rosenstein - is conducting a probe into alleged ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Asked again by Feinstein if he was denying that the Russian Federation probe was part of the discussions about firing Comey, Session said he wasn't confirming or denying anything about the hypothetical conversation because he considered those conversations confidential.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told senators he won't discuss "confidential" conversations he had with President Donald Trump.

Last week, the Democratic senators on the committee sent a letter to Sessions, warning him that they expected he "will answer members' questions fully and truthfully" or invoke the privilege.

When Session testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June, he also cited confidentiality when asked about his role in the administration.
