Morning brief: Franken says he thinks Sessions 'perjured himself'

‘IT’S HARD TO COME TO ANY OTHER CONCLUSION’

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., on Tuesday called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to clarify an answer he gave during his confirmation hearing in January about possible meetings with Russians.

"It’s hard to come to any other conclusion that he just perjured himself,” Franken said in an interview, recalling the hearing. “He answered a question that he asked himself, which is, 'Did I meet with any Russians?' And he answered it falsely. He said no, I hadn’t.”

Sessions maintains that his answer to a question from Franken was correct.
