Jeff Sessions tells senators: My conversation with Trump about Comey ‘remains confidential’

by Andrea Noble
October 18, 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at the outset of his first congressional oversight hearing that he will “not be able” to discuss the content of his conversations with President Trump — a stance that appeared likely to derail lawmakers’ efforts to learn more about the firing of former FBI Director James B. Comey.

The attorney general demurred when asked at Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee whether Mr. Trump shared the reason he wanted to fire Mr. Comey or if the president mentioned wanting to lift the veil of the ongoing investigation into Russian interference.

“That calls for a communication with the president that I believe remains confidential,” Mr. Sessions said,

Mr. Sessions referred lawmakers back to the to letters sent by himself and his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, which explained they both had doubts about Mr. Comey’s ability to lead the department as a result of his handling of the Hillary Clinton email server investigation.

    Personally, I can’t wait for McCain and all his cronies to retire and be replaced by people who don’t collude with the dems. RHINOS (Right hating insecure narcissists on steroids). PATHETIC!

  • Retired says:

    All the Democrats are doing is wasting valuable time to prevent progress and stalling for the 2018 election , well guess what they are going to get paid back for it including Rhinos .

  • KJ says:

    So if the reason for Comey’s firing and the need for a new FBI Director had to do with the pretend investigation and exoneration of Hilderbeast, we are to conclude that Director Wray will be referring her to AG Sessions for indictment relatively soon.

    When are these leftist,liberal,socialist,communist, hating dumocrats going to start doing the peoples business of governing and get out of the witch hunt business. Wonder why our debt is so high, just look at the waste of the dumocrats, their hatred of America, their stealing,cover ups and God only knows how much more. No wonder they can barely be called anything but what they are losers,liars,thieves who do not have the brains to get out of the rain without instructions

      I have no idea why Trump still keeps Sessions on the payroll. I believe Trump does not know Sessions is now going around the country campaigning for the 2020 GOP WH nomination. That means Trump is going to be head-on collision with Sessions. Sessions is a bug Trump should get rid of from his bed.

    Well it is October so the witch hunts are out in full throttle. If something new came up I would listen, this is the first time I haven’t listened to an investigation. It is like watching repeats on TV.

    1. Retired says:

      You got it with Witch hunts , to bad the Democrats don’t start investigating their own Criminals .

    2. Pete says:

      The proper target is the witch that keeps popping up on national news.
