U.S. lawmakers said Sunday they want answers from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he testifies this week before the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

“There’s a question of his [Sessions’] participation in the firing of [former FBI] director Comey,” Democratic Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island said on Fox News Sunday. “Then, there have been allegations, publicly, of meetings that go beyond the meetings that he has already declared he had with representatives of Russia’s government. That will come up.”

Sessions originally was scheduled to appear before House and Senate appropriations subcommittees this week. But he wrote to Congress Saturday that he wanted to speak before the Senate Intelligence Committee instead to address questions that arose during Comey's testimony last week.

“I assume that this [hearing] will be public,” Republican Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma said on CBS’ Face the Nation program. “We want to be able to get his side of it, get all the facts out there. We’ve had a lot of unnamed sources in the media come out and make statements about Jeff Sessions. It would be very good to get it directly from him.”

The Justice Department, which Sessions heads, has been investigating contacts between the Russian government and President Donald Trump's inner circle.

美国议员星期天表示,他们希望美国司法部长杰夫·塞申斯本周在参议院情报委员会就调查俄罗斯介入去年美国总统大选一事进行作证时,能够得到他对一些问题的答案。

来自罗德岛州的民主党籍参议员杰克·里德对福克斯星期天新闻节目说,“我对他参与解雇前联调局局长科米一事有个问题。还有就是有公开的指称说,在他自己声明与俄罗斯政府的代表举行的会晤之外还有会晤。这个问题也会问到。”

塞申斯原本定于本周出席众议院和参议院拨款委员会的会议。但是他星期六写信给国会,他希望在参议院情报委员会作证,回应上周科米作证所出现的问题。

来自俄克拉荷马州的共和党籍参议员詹姆斯·兰克福德在哥伦比亚广播公司的“面对全国”节目中说,“我预计听证会是公开的。我们希望能够得到他对这个问题的说法,厘清所有的事实。我们有很多未透露姓名的媒体信息来源,说到了有关杰夫·塞申斯的事情。直接从他那里得到回答会非常好。”

塞申斯领导的司法部,一直在调查俄罗斯政府和川普总统核心圈的联系接触。
