Sessions brands Russia collusion claims a 'detestable lie'

AFP  |  Washington 

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions vehemently denied today that he colluded with an alleged Russian bid to tilt the 2016 presidential in Donald Trump's favour.

"I have never with or had any conversations with any Russians or any foreign officials concerning any type of interference with any campaign or in the United States," Sessions told the Senate Intelligence Committee.

"The suggestion that I participated with any collusion, that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie.
