Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday. Sessions indicated in a letter Saturday he will appear before the committee to respond to fired FBI Director James Comey's testimony about him; Sessions is implicated in the committee's Russia probe. In a statement Monday, the Justice Department said Sessions hopes the hearing will be public, as he "believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him," but ABC's Mike Levine reported Monday that Sessions may invoke executive privilege to avoid answering questions about his discussions with President Trump before Trump abruptly fired Comey on May 9.
