While being questioned by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sessions said, “I believe he said something. I believe it was the next day where he said something that expressed concern about being left alone with the President.”
Sessions also confirmed that he left the room, and saw Comey and Trump talking at the President’s desk. The Attorney General appears to back up the story that Director Comey told, but if you compare the two versions of the story, Comey offered much more detail than Sessions.
Jeff Sessions is trying to be vague, dodge, and weave, but he still managed to sink Trump by lending credibility to James Comey’s story.
