The appearance before the House Judiciary Committee follows a guilty plea from one Trump campaign aide who served on a foreign policy council that Sessions chaired, as well as statements from another adviser who said he'd advised the then-GOP Alabama senator about an upcoming trip to Russian Federation. They see her alleged role as a scandal, particularly amid charges the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election.
Sessions has previously told Congress he was unaware of any Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation, leading Democrats on Tuesday to accuse him of lying under oath.
Sessions said at his January confirmation hearing that he would recuse himself from any investigations involving Clinton given his role as a vocal campaign surrogate to Trump.
Mr Page's trip has drawn scrutiny in inquiries into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election.
"After reading his account, and to the best of my recollection, I believe that I wanted to make clear to him that he was not authorised to represent the campaign with the Russian government, or any other foreign government, for that matter", Sessions said on Tuesday.
Sessions pointed out that prior to Trump's administration, there were only nine investigations of classified leaks in the last three years, compared with the 27 under scrutiny today. "But we do our duty every day based on the laws and fact".
Trump Picks Alex Azar for HHS Secretary His earlier stint was general counsel and deputy secretary at the department in the George W Bush administration. He said Azar, whose own Twitter feed is private, would be "a star for better healthcare and lower drug prices".
Testimony before Congress has proved to be something of a thorn in Sessions's side.
Sessions said he now recalled that exchange with Papadopoulos.
"I will not accept and reject accusations that I have ever lied under oath. I have always tried to answer the questions fairly and accurately". The New York Timesreports some White House officials see appointing a second special counsel investigating the 2010 Uranium One deal as the only way Sessions can save his job as attorney general.
During the March 2016 campaign meeting where Russia was discussed, Sessions shut down Papadopoulos' idea of engaging with Russian contacts, according to a source familiar with the matter. Trump has repeatedly voiced frustration about the Mueller probe and publicly criticized Sessions, stoking speculation he might be fired.

"Are you recused from investigations that involved Secretary Clinton?"
"I'm not able to answer that", he repeated multiple times to Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan as he asked about the dossier.
"You can be sure that they will be done without political influence and they will be done correctly and properly", Sessions said at the hearing Tuesday.
