Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, where he rejected the accusation that he lied about the Trump campaign's contacts with the Russians. Challenged about why he did not disclose that Trump's former campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, had proposed a meeting between then-candidate Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting Sessions attended, Sessions told the House committee that he had "no recollection" of the meeting until news reports came out. "I do now recall that the March 2016 meeting at the Trump hotel that [George] Papadopoulos attended, but I have no clear recollection of the details of what he said at that meeting," Sessions said.
