Franken Wants Sessions to Testify, Again

The Washington Times reports Senator Al Franken (D-MN) wants Attorney General Jeff Sessions to come back and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee after a report emerged Friday alleging that Mr. Sessions spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about President Trump’s campaign during the 2016 election. Mr. Sessions testified earlier this year that he didn’t speak with Russian officials about the campaign. In March, he recused himself from involvement in the Justice Department’s investigation into allegations of collusion between President Trump’s campaign team and the Russian government during the 2016 election because he had served as a surrogate for President Trump’s campaign.

The report from The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, said Mr. Kislyak spoke with Mr. Sessions about the campaign and reported that U.S. agents had obtained Mr. Kislyak’s communications.
