Fresh questions for Sessions _ and he'll answer in public

Comey spoke of receiving pressure from President Donald Trump to drop a probe into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's contacts with Russian Federation.

And Trump's frequent commentary on matters such as the investigation into alleged ties between his campaign and Russian Federation are distracting from his agenda and hurting the GOP, Kinzinger added.

The President has played coy. Barring the emergence of evidence such as a surreptitious recording of the conversation - Trump tweeted that Comey had better hope there are no tapes - deciding which of the two men's accounts is factual may depend on which details most accurately reflect others' recollections.

Senators are expected to hone in on Comey's recounting of a February 14 White House meeting where Trump pressed the director to drop the FBI's inquiry into national security adviser Michael Flynn. Stray audio equipment left behind by camera crews is known to draw suspicion, so it would be hard for a formal recording system to go unnoticed.

That's when, in Comey's telling, Trump made the ask about the inquiry into the former national security adviser: "I hope you can let this go". He's "just having a little fun", this person said of Trump's tape antics.

Lawmakers, including Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, have asked the FBI to investigate and to determine if Sessions committed perjury when he denied having had meetings with Russians. "I think we could work out a way that it could be dignified, public, with questions, with Leader McConnell". "If there are, I'm on 'em!"

President Donald Trump is planning to hold a campaign-style rally later this month in Iowa. "The President says it is not true", CNN's John Berman said earlier Monday on "New Day". "I think that was a miscalculation on his part".

She added, "He needs to be fired".

Police identify mother, 2 daughters found dead at Ohio home
North Royalton police said the victims were Taylor Pifer , 21, Kylie Pifer , 18, and their mother Suzanne Taylor , 45. Loeding said none of the victims suffered gunshot wounds, despite earlier reports that the women were shot.

"I don't think we finish those whole conversations until we just know everything, so I just want more information about everything that can come out", the IL lawmaker said.

The White House disputed the characterization, calling it offensive.

"The tape thing is a total Trump real estate developer comment", the Republican said.

While several committee members, including Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Angus King, I-Maine had voiced support for a public hearing, other members have complained that doing so will inevitably lead to a brick wall, where Sessions will say he can not discuss certain matters in public.

The open question - with potentially far-reaching consequences - is whether Trump failed to understand the difference between playing the intimidation game in the boardroom versus the Oval Office.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions could be at the center of two controversies in the Trump administration: whether Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to help Trump win and whether the president obstructed justice. But even he appears to be hinting that it's all a charade.

Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., said "there's a real question of the propriety" of Sessions' involvement in Comey's dismissal, because Sessions had stepped aside from the federal investigation into contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry".
