PBS NewsHour’s coverage plans for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee
Washington, DC (June 13, 2017) — PBS NewsHour will report extensively on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony to the Senate Intelligence committee on broadcast, online and social, as part of ongoing coverage of the investigation into claims of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Sessions’ testimony, which comes less than a week after former FBI Director James Comey’s, is expected to answer questions about Sessions’ own meetings with Russian officials during the Trump campaign, and his decision to recuse himself from the investigation.
NewsHour managing editor Judy Woodruff will anchor live coverage on select PBS stations starting at 2:30 p.m. ET, Tuesday, June 13th. NewsHour’s nightly broadcast (check local listings) will also devote extensive coverage to the hearing, with correspondents Lisa Desjardins live from the U.S. Capitol and John Yang at the White House.
