Virginia Sen. Mark Warner questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and his recusal from investigations into alleged collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials ahead of Sessions’ testimony before the Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday.
Warner, the vice chairman of the committee, noted that Sessions had interactions with Russian officials during Trump’s campaign in his prepared opening remarks.
“You were an early and ardent supporter of Mr. Trump. In March, you were named as Chairman of the Trump campaign’s national security advisory committee,” Warner said, addressing Sessions. “You were much more than a mere surrogate; you were a strategic advisor who helped shape much of the campaign’s national security strategy. No doubt you will have insight about some of the key Trump associates that we are seeking to hear from in the weeks ahead.”
