Attorney General Jeff Sessions told senators he won’t answer questions about his conversations with President Donald Trump over the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“I can neither assert executive privilege, nor can I disclose today the content of my confidential conversations with the president,” Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday. “A president is entitled to have private, confidential communications with his Cabinet officials. Until such time as the president makes a decision with respect to this privilege, I cannot waive that privilege myself or otherwise compromise his ability to assert it.”
