1. The big news on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, is that the United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions, will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee at 2 p.m. EST. Comey is testifying in regards to the testimony that former FBI Director James Comey gave last Thursday. Comey testified that the FBI was concerned that Sessions may have other communications that he did not report on his security clearance and that with Sessions recusal there were difficulties within the Justice Department. Sessions will be asked about Comey’s testimony that the FBI director asked Sessions not to leave him alone with the President again. Comey described a meeting in the Oval Office where the President excused his inner circle to speak to Comey alone to ask him to “let go” of the investigation into former National Security adviser Michael Flynn.
2. Monday, a close friend of Donald Trump, Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of the conservative news website Newsmax, stated in an interview with PBS News, that the President is” considering perhaps terminating the special counsel,” Ruddy said. “I think he’s weighing that option… I personally think it would be a significant mistake, even though I don’t think there is a justification [for a special counsel. “The White House pushed back immediately saying that Ruddy was not speaking for President Trump. Press secretary Sean Spicer stated “Mr. Ruddy never spoke to the president regarding this issue. With respect to this subject, only the president or his attorneys are authorized to comment.”
3. Monday, Judge Randolph Moss, a United States District Judge, approved an order for Attorney General’s security clearance form to be release to the public. The form should disclose any contacts with Russian officials. The judge’s decision issued Monday afternoon also gave the Justice Department and the FBI one month to produce the document. The decision by the court was due to the request by American Oversight, who seeks information via the Freedom of Information Act to investigate the Trump administration. The Judge ordered the government until July 12 to produce any other documents that are not subjected to a freedom of information exemption from the request for the page of Sessions’ SF-86 form, a security clearance questionnaire.
