AG Sessions Goes Off on Sen. Wyden: You Are Engaging in Innuendo

“This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it,” Sessions told Wyden.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday accused Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) of promoting a secret innuendo leaked about Sessions during his testimony before the Select Intelligence Committee.

Wyden asked Sessions what aspects of his recusal from the Russian investigation were “problematic,” a claim that former FBI Director James Comey had previously made.

“Why don’t you tell me? There are none, Senator Wyden. There are none. I can tell you that with absolute certainty,” Sessions responded vigorously. “This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it.”

“People are suggesting through innuendo that I have been not honest about matters, and I’ve tried to be honest,” Sessions concluded.
