U .S. Attorney general Jeff Sessions at a speech at Georgetown University Saturday said he did not regret his decision to recuse himself from the investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Russia has denied meddling in the campaign and President Donald Trump has denied any collusion took place.
Trump and Sessions have had a rocky relationship since Sessions recused himself from the Justice Department’s Russia probe.
The recusal paved the way for the appointment of Special Counsel Mueller, who has indicted several former Trump campaign aides and advisers.
