Senator Al Franken was not pleased after the Attorney General Jeff Sessions completed testimony. Of course, Sen. Franken probably isn’t the only Democrat in the Senate upset at Sessions. During Sessions testimony, he continually squared off with Senate Democrats on the Intelligence Committee much to their dissatisfaction.
Early in the hearing Sessions addressed the issue surrounding Senator Franken’s question saying it was a rambling question that he did not understand. Session said during his opening remarks which you can watch below:
Relatedly, there is the assertion that I did not answer Senator Franken’s question honestly at my confirmation hearing. That is false. This is how it happened. He asked me a rambling question that included dramatic, new allegations that the United States intelligence community had advised President-elect Trump that “there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.” I was taken aback by these explosive allegations, which he said were being reported in breaking news that day. I wanted to refute immediately any suggestion that I was a part of such an activity. I replied, “Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn’t have – did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.”

Apparently, Senator Franken was none to please with AG Sessions answer and issued the following statement.
Well at some point these two are going meet up again, and it should be fun to watch. How do you think Sessions did during his hearing?
