AG Jeff Sessions says special counsel Robert Mueller has not interviewed him

WATCH LIVE: Jeff Sessions faces grilling in Senate Judiciary Committee

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 Trump has 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.

After bringing up that Sessions had previously refused to say whether he had discussed potential pardons for people implicated by the Russian Federation investigation, Sen. Leahy then asked again, "Have you been interviewed by them?"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a Senate hearing on Wednesday criticized James Comey, saying the "significance of the error" the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director made on the "Clinton matter" has not been fully understood.

Sessions recused himself from the investigation in March, before Mueller was appointed, but he is seen as a possible witness because of his involvement in the May firing of FBI Director James Comey.

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.

He also faced questions from lawmakers about his swift undoing of Obama-era protections for gay and transgender people and his rollback of criminal justice policies that aimed to reduce the federal prison population, among other changes he has made in nine months since taking office.

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