Sessions Denies Meeting With Ambassador for Trump Campaign
Accusations of collusion with Russian Federation during the election campaign have dogged Trump's first 10 months in office, setting off an investigation by Special CounselRobert Mueller and several congressional probes.
The prosecutors will report to Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and recommend whether any new investigations should be opened, whether any matters now under investigation require additional resources and whether it might be necessary to appoint a special counsel to oversee a probe, according to a letter the Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman, Representative Robert Goodlatte.
During an Oval Office meeting with the president on November 1, Pirro denounced Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his refusal to go after Clinton, who was Secretary of State when the deal was approved.
"I'm really not involved with the Justice Department", Trump told reporters earlier this month. Sessions is at the hearing to answer questions about his leadership of the Department of Justice and his interactions with Russians while a top adviser in the Trump campaign.
Republicans are pushing for further investigation into the Uranium One deal and allegations of corruption involving the Clinton Foundation. However, the Justice Department does not typically confirm or deny specific investigations, and Boyd stressed that the letter "should not be construed to do so".
Sessions' relationship with the president has been significantly strained since he recused himself from the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to influence the 2016 election.

Sessions' decision to publicly open the door to a second special counsel, adding to the already expansive investigation of Russian interference and the Trump campaign led by former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, is certain to fuel questions and controversy when Sessions testifies Tuesday in front of Goodlatte's committee.
In Page's testimony, he said he "mentioned [the meeting] briefly to Senator Sessions as I was walking out the door" of a dinner just days before his trip to Russian Federation.
"After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorized to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter", Sessions said on Tuesday.
"I would say it is improper to influence - ah - it would be - a president can not improperly influence and investigation, and I have not been improperly influenced and would not be improperly influenced", Sessions continued. The Justice Department made the announcement Monday in responding to concerns from Republican lawmakers. The members who signed on requested the "appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate various matters, including the sale of Uranium One, alleged unlawful dealing related to the Clinton Foundation and other matters", the New York Times reports.
Jordan has led the charge of GOP lawmakers calling for a special counsel investigation to be launched in addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. "But, honestly, they should be looking at the Democrats".
