Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify in an open hearing Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee on his role in the unfolding Russia investigation, according to congressional and Justice Department officials.
Sessions informed Congress over the weekend that he will appear before the intelligence committee, rather than before previously scheduled hearings regarding funding for the Justice Department.
DOJ and Senate officials did not initially indicate over the weekend whether Sessions’ appearance would be public or private. The hearing is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
