Nov. 14 (UPI) — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify on Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he is likely to face questions on Russia’s election interference.

Sessions came under fire last month after a former campaign advisor to U.S. President Donald Trump, George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to misleading investigators about his involvement with Russia.

When asked if he had contact with Russia in October, Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee he did not have any contact with Russian officials and didn’t know of anyone else who did.

However, court documents related to Papadopoulos’ guilty plea showed that the former adviser offered to set up a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin during a campaign meeting in 2016, which Sessions attended.

Sessions recused himself from investigations related to Russian interference in the elections shortly after taking office as attorney general.

The testimony is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. EST.
