U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Wednesday he has not been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in connection with an investigation into whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russians in the 2016 campaign.
"That calls for a communication I've had with the president and I believe it remains confidential", Sessions said.
That scenario is a hot topic in light of Special Counsel Bob Mueller's Russian Federation probe, as President Trumphas reportedly asked advisers about his abilities to pardon himself and those close to him, and Mueller's team has appeared to take measures to circumvent that possibility, by working with the NY state attorney general's office.
The routine oversight hearing is Sessions' first before the committee since his January confirmation, and it comes as has worked quickly to reshape the department with an intense focus on immigration, drugs, gangs and violent crime.

Feinstein told Sessions it's important to understand what role he had in this process, including conversations he had with the president and others in the White House.

Feinstein pressed him during her line of questioning anyway, asking what his designated role was in Comey's firing.
