All nine Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are asking for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to testify before the panel to explain his failure to disclose his conversations with Russia's envoy to the U.S.

In a letter to the committee's Republican chairman, the Democrats said Friday that they welcomed Sessions' decision to recuse himself from any probe that examines communications between President Donald Trump's aides and Moscow. But they said significant questions remain unanswered.

The Democrats said Sessions' responses during his confirmation hearing were "at best, incomplete and misleading" and he hadn't come forward to correct the record before his contacts with the ambassador became public.

The lawmakers asked Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa to schedule a hearing with Sessions.
