Jeff Sessions will face the House judiciary panel on November 14

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify before the House Judiciary Committee about issues facing the Justice Department on Nov. 14, the committee confirmed on Tuesday.

The hearing will take place at 10 a.m. (1500 GMT), it said in a statement.

Reuters reported on Monday that the committee would hold a hearing with Sessions next week. It will offer Democrats their first opportunity to question him about his past statements regarding contacts between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian intermediaries.
