Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, where he was grilled in regards to the Russia investigation. Sessions drew criticism from many by appearing to be evasive on some questions in regards to his communications with President Trump. This did not sit well with CBS Evening News, where Anchor Scott Pelley chided that “today, the attorney general was more measured [than Trump], even though he declined to answer some of the most revealing questions.” CBS’s disgust didn’t end there, they seriously asserted Session should be held in contempt of Congress.
The network initially floated the idea after their first of four reports dealing with the Sessions hearing and the Russia investigation. “Sessions said he recommended Comey's firing because of his handling of the Clinton e-mail case last year,” Correspondent Nancy Cordes noted as she was wrapping up her report. “Still, one top Democrat said tonight, Scott, that perhaps Sessions and other top officials should be held in contempt of Congress if they won't answer these questions about the President.”
