“We certainly don’t want him to tell us things that aren’t true,” Feinstein said of Sessions on Sunday. “Maybe he has a faulty memory, so there are a lot of excuses one can make. But at this stage, he’s got to narrow his recollections. When he comes before the committee again, he has to be precise and it has to be accurate.”
