Attorney General Jeff Sessions continued to push back against liberal legislators’ accusations of “collusion” with the Russian government on Tuesday, saying he’s “always told the truth” and will “continue to do so.”
Sessions was speaking with the House Judiciary Committee when he lashed-out at Democratic lawmakers who continue to push the Russia-Trump conspiracy theory, adding that his “answers have not changed” since his initial testimony earlier this year.
“I would like to address the false charges made about my previous testimony. My answers have not changed, I’ve always told the truth, and I’ve answered every question as I understood them to the best of my recollection, as I will continue to do today,” said the Attorney General.
“I would like to address recent news reports regarding meetings during the campaign attended by George Papadopoulos and Carter Page, among others. Frankly, I had no recollection of this meeting until I saw these news reports,” he added.
“After reading this account and to the best of my recollection, I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government or any other foreign government,” said Sessions. “I would gladly have reported it had I remembered it because I pushed back against his suggestion that I thought may have been improper.”
