Sen. Al Franken said he will give Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., the detailed sketch he drew Tuesday of Sessions as he questioned Solicitor General Elena Kagan during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
Franken said that Sessions asked him for the drawing, and that Franken was happy to give him the original copy. The two men briefly chatted after Franken questioned Kagan at this morning’s hearing.
“I’m going to make an inscription saying, “A commanding and authoritative Sen. Sessions questions Solicitor General Elena Kagan,” Franken said.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
