The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is rejecting a request from panel Democrats to have Attorney General Jeff Sessions testify and explain his contacts with the Russian ambassador.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said late Friday that there is no plan for Sessions to come before the committee before his customary testimony at an annual oversight hearing.

Grassley said in a statement that Sessions did the right thing by recusing himself from any investigation into communications between President Donald Trump's aides and Russian officials.

The Republican lawmaker complained that Democrats "didn't even have the decency to give him an opportunity to clear up confusion to the statement in writing."
