AG Sessions Will Testify Again About Russia-

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will return to Capitol Hill next week and will likely be grilled again about Russia.

The House Judiciary Committee has confirmed Sessions for a Justice Department oversight hearing next Tuesday. Democrats have accused Sessions of making conflicting statements about past meetings with Russian officials and now they will be able to ask as many questions as they want. One focus will be his ties to former Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos.

Earlier this year, Sessions recused himself from the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Now-former Senator Sessions was a top adviser to the Trump presidential campaign. The Senate Judiciary Committee may also ask to speak with the Attorney General.

Trump To North Korea: “Don’t Try Us”-

President Trump is sending a stern warning to North Korea.

Speaking to the South Korean National Assembly, Trump said the North should not underestimate or try the U.S. He argued that the U.S. and allies will not be intimidated or blackmailed by the threat of nuclear weapons. The president called for a greater international effort to curb the North's nuclear program. He said the North must embrace total denuclearization.

Trump warned that a provocative action by North Korea would be fatal miscalculation. Trump condemned what he called the "twisted regime" in North Korea. At one point speaking directly to Kim Jong-Un, he said “despite every crime you have committed against God and man”, the US was prepared to resolve the crisis diplomatically.

He argued that the North is ruled like a cult and is a "hell that no person deserves” and noted that the North rewards political loyalty and punishes dissent. Trump also said too many North Koreans die of hunger.
