Attorney General Jeff Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee this afternoon, as the investigation continues into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.
Sessions is expected to take questions about his recusal from the Russia investigation, his own meetings with Russian officials, and what if anything he knew about a private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and fired FBI Director James Comey.
The public hearing begins at 2:30 p.m.
