Attorney General Jeff Sessions will testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday about the Trump administration’s ties to Russia. Gossip Cop has a live stream available online. Watch the hearing below.

A committee of 17 senators will question Sessions about his contact with Russian officials while working on President Donald Trump’s campaign last year. During his confirmation hearing in January, the former Republican senator from Alabama denied meeting with Russian officials during the election. In March, however, it was uncovered that Sessions met twice last year with the Russian ambassador to the United States. He later acknowledged the meetings, but said he didn’t lie to Congress because those encounters were part of his job as a senator, and not as a representative of the Trump campaign.

The revelations forced Sessions to recuse himself from any investigations into Russia and Trump’s campaign. The attorney general will also be probed about his role in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, who testified before the Senate last week. During his testimony, Comey said the FBI knew it would be “problematic” for Sessions to stay involved in the Russia investigation before he recused himself in March. Comey didn’t elaborate further, but Sessions will presumably be pressed about what those problems entailed.

Tuesday’s hearing marks the first time Sessions will have to face hard-hitting questions about Russia’s possible interference in the 2016 election. However, many believe the attorney general will assert his executive privilege to avoid answering questions about his conversations with President Trump. Sessions’ Senate Intelligence Committee hearing begins at 2:30 p.m. ET. Watch the attorney general’s testimony in the live stream below.
