As CBS News reports, last month Sessions told the committee that the campaign was not in contact with Russian operatives during the 2016 election cycle, but newly unsealed court documents indicated that during a March 2016 meeting Donald Trump and Sessions attended former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos offered to arrange a meeting with then-candidate Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Sessions will likely face questions regarding his knowledge of conversations between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, such as those described in the statement by George Papdopoulos, which wasn't released to the public until after Sessions' Senate hearing.
The Justice Department informed members of the House Judiciary Committee on Monday that it has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate "certain issues" surrounding the Uranium One deal, the Clinton Foundation and other matters.
In his opening statement, U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., went through Sessions's public statements on Russia-related matters, highlighting instances in which what Sessions said did not comport with other evidence.
Sessions has previously faced repeated questions from senators about his role in the campaign and the investigation into Russian meddling in the United States election.
The New York Times reported that the letter "appeared to be a direct response to Mr. Trump's statement on November 3, when he said he was disappointed with his beleaguered attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and that longstanding unproven allegations about the Clintons and the Obama administration should be investigated".
When asked previously about whether he believed surrogates from the Trump campaign had communications with the Russians, Sessions said, speaking before the House Judiciary Committee.
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. "'Looks like' is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel", the attorney general later added.
The department's response from Stephen E. Boyd, an assistant attorney general, expresses the importance of the department's "duty to carefully evaluate" ongoing matters "in a non-political manner", noting "the Department does not ordinarily confirm or deny investigations, and this letter should not be construed to do so".
Sessions said although his Justice Department will consider investigations into Hillary Clinton, he could not say whether he would recuse himself from the matter, contradicting his previous statements on the matter.
"This department will not unlawfully target people", he said.
"But I will not accept, and reject, accusations that I have ever lied under oath". As well, another aide, Carter Page, told Congress in private statements that he had alerted Sessions about a meeting he planned in Russian Federation during the campaign.
"In all of my testimony, I can only do my best to answer all of your questions as I understand them and to the best of my memory. I would say that's not fair, Mr. Jeffries".
And at his latest appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sessions seemed to shift his position again.
Shortly after that speech, North Korean officials told CNN, "We don't care about what that mad dog may utter", referring to Trump. In the first of three successive tweets Sunday morning, Trump hit back at his critics.
